Simple pleasures in life come in many forms. Yesterday, I discovered snow flakes.
While walking down our hill, I noticed them falling from the sky. Lots of them. I stood in the silence of the moment and gazed into the air. My eyes followed them as they fell softly on my nose and fur and then, I could contain myself no more; I started biting at them, like I do the marshmellows that mom tosses to me, and I caught those snowflakes. Cool simple pleasures. They kept falling and I kept catching. Mom laughed and of course I did it more. Mom says she sometimes takes the simple things in life for granted.
The sound of the water falling gently over the rocks in the creek below our house, the smell of freshly cut grass, the daffodills as they push through the ground and open their pretty faces each February, and softly falling snow flakes. Mom says I notice these things and help her to appreciate the smiple beauty of our world. I guess that's why she loves to go on walks with me :)

Simple pleasures are the best. We love your diary entry and your beautiful winter page. Good friends are one of the greatest pleasures.
