So far my pleasure is not having spilled cereal over the office carpet. I can't believe I caught it in time. There wasn't any milk in it thankfully.

...just a simple soul.

Just received a box from my 93-year-old MIL, Maddy. In it was a tablecloth and 12 dinner napkins. They are made of the most exquisite linen I have ever seen. Almost gossamer. They are off-white and are heavily embroidered with flowers, birds, animals, vines. The embroidery thread is the same color as the linen, so everything is very tone-on-tone.

I've never seen such beautiful handwork in my life. Clearly the whole set is completely handmade, perhaps by her mother. She says it belonged to her mother. I can get some clue as to how old it is because Maddy's mother died when Maddy was 8-years-old.

I feel so blessed. It's so beautiful, it nearly took my breath away.

I'm not sure if this fits with this thread or not but I think it falls under the "lifes little pleasures" catagory.

I recently changed my shift at work to the night shift. Now I get to spend everyday with my 7 month old daughter and 4 year old son.

Daddy days are now everyday!!!

Plus we save $800 per month in day care costs. Now there's a pleasure we can bank on.
