Surprise Simple Things!

Christina, of Soul Aperture, is having a blog party for her birthday today. She organises lovely simple things days from time to time, inviting people to share the simple things that make them happy. I love thinking about these things, to combat the doom and gloom that can sometimes creep into life. Christina's friend Se'lah has organised a surprise simple things for Christina. Happy Birthday! Christina likes balloons so Anila is here to share hers.

Simple things I like include..... Surprises-I was so surprised when this face appeared in the clouds!

Doodling -and living near the river.

Wildlife about the home.

Joining in with lovely weekly memes such as Rebecca's Haiku my heart Friday. This tape is so lovely! Visit Rebecca here for more Haikus! I have left you a few links as presents here Christina!

Gorgeous photos-visit this site-it really is lovely!

-I know how you like the rain!
A song I randomly found through googling beautiful things!

I love your take on life, simple things do give us such a great amount of pleasure. We do lose track of them when we are so busy.

Simple things are the most surprising in the unexpected pleasure they offer. Love your found wildlife (I have a lampshade just like that!) and your cloud face is just beautiful ...
