It’s Monday, not usually a day of joy, so a good opportunity to look back at this week’s small pleasures.
1 These flowers I bought on Friday – gorgeous water lilies that open in the day and close at night.
2 With autumn approaching, summer fruits are being replaced by pears, apples and early feijoas. It is so nice to walk into a shop and have a choice of six different types of pears. I made an apple crumble for desert on Sunday to use up some of the apples in the fruit bowl.
3 A work trip to New Plymouth could almost count as a small pleasure, given it was a lovely sunny day and it is one of my favourite places.
The Govett-Brewster Gallery, New Plymouth
4 The birth of my great niece, Claire Bridget. Her middle name is after my mother.
5 Saturday’s afternoon tea as I wrote about in my last post was also a small pleasure.
6 Just the simple pleasure of walking to and from work through the Botanic Gardens can sometimes be enough to clear the head and blow away the cobwebs.
