simple pleasures ...

... here is one of my Christmas presents ... well, i bought it and one of the kids gave it to me.  (that's how it goes in our house ... i organize all the gifts and the best way to get what you want is buy it yourself... right????)

as you can see, it's a very pretty little 'coffe table' style of book.   a quick 'pick me up' full of short stories, ideas and quotes.   here's one of my favourites ...

"It is neither wealth nor splendour, but tranquility and occupation which gives happiness".


Thomas Jefferson ...

Sweet "coffee table book". I think I would enjoy looking at it. Love the quote and the beach idea. Whenever I am in the throes of a major decision, I always seem to contemplate better when I am near water.

That looks like my kind of book - thanks for the introduction! Great quote.
