Dayle spotlights a beautiful window vignette with a sentiment about Friends on her blog today; she writes of the importance of friends far and near, even those we might know only through blogland. I have many internet acquaintances, some of whom I've shared personal stories with in the way people talk to strangers on the plane. But these "friends" are ones I continue to have contact with, unlike the airline passengers.
Today, my Simple Pleasure is something I take for granted many months of the year; I joked with my husband that there was only one month that I didn't use it last year. The photo is of the control for my side of the heated mattress pad on our bed. I LOVE it, and I really would not like to get into bed without it on. My husband goes to bed before I do (he gets up at 5), so he turns my side on high; when I get into bed, I turn it down for the night.
It's almost as nice as the heated waterbed we had for the first 10 years of our marriage.
