The Wittle Things

That man is richest whose pleasures are cheapest.
-Henry David Thoreau

This Real Simple Daily Thought was in my inbox when I got back from my relaxing two hour walk this morning.

Whenever I'm walking I always find pleasure in the randomest things. For instance, there's a stream that I pass over and last week there was an overturned grocery cart in it that I thought looked really beautiful. Today, I made sure to walk by it again to see if it was still there, and much to my delight, there were two! TWO!! That made me smile even more.

Yeah, I'm a little different. Or as my best friend's new guy said, "She has a lot of personality." I think what he really meant was, "She is fucking weird."

At least he had enough class not to say it to your face.

OMG, I'm totally ashamed, but I'm subscribed to Rev Run's little daily musings. Sometimes it's something ridiculous, but every now and then he has these great quotes either from other famous people and rarely from himself. I've written a bunch on Post Its and posted them around my cubicle as motivation not to smash my head through the computer.

Lovely blog, I just discovered it :)

I have to say that I can relate to you on enjoying the simple things on a walk, sometimes it can be a little flower or a cute house Ive never seen before. I also love those chocolate panda biscuits you posted in an earlier post, I used to eat those all the time when I was a kid and koala ones to :D

Well, I thought it was nice that the one cart had a friend, so it didn't have to be lonely.
