Two Simple Pleasures in one day

I always look forward to Dayle's "Simple Pleasures" opportunity on Thursdays; today she blogs about her new great-niece and the sheer delight in taking care of her for even a short period of time.

Yesterday was a trip to "town"  (20 miles away) for a couple of routine medical "maintenance" procedures. Afterwards, I stopped at the local Safeway store for a roasted chicken and some deli salad; DH was working later and we host a weekly Bible study, so I didn't feel like cooking.  (Actually, I don't need an excuse for that!)  I found the bunches of white carnations Elizabeth had blogged about on "Just Following Jesus in My Real Life"...and I bought some for myself.   After checking out, I was pushing my cart toward the door when I saw the display with discounted Christmas items....and there sat Marley!  He's one of those squeezable plush bears with a winter scarf around his neck.  I couldn't resist:  he was marked down to $4.99 from $12.99!  It's been a while since I've added a teddy bear to my small collection.

So here are my two Simple Pleasures:  Marley and some white carnations.

Oh my gosh, Evelyn. Marley is simply precious! And, of course, the flowers only add to his cuteness. Always a pleasure having you at the party.
