Just Five Things – Delight

For the next couple of weeks, I’m joining Michelle in “Just Five Things”, the making of lists….Today’s subject is Delight!

Only when your consciousness is totally focused on the moment you are in can you receive whatever gift, lesson, or delight that moment has to offer. ~Barbara DeAngelis~

Some of today’s delights…


  1. Watching night turn to day
  2. Watching the fog roll in & around the landscape
  3. A glimpse of a deer at the edge of the farmer’s field
  4. Watching the little children jump excitedly when the school bus arrives 
  5. That first sip of my morning coffee


  1. Feeling the unusually warm November sunshine on my face
  2. Feeling productive at work
  3. Loving the new plant in my office
  4. Short interlude of quiet over the lunch hour
  5. Listening to the birds chatter while out for a breath of fresh air


  1. A new wine to try with dinner
  2. Last BBQ burgers of the season (hubby spoils me!)
  3. Spotted Christmas lights on a few houses … early, but still pretty
  4. A good book waiting on my bedside table
  5. A new knitting pattern to play with

Thank you for visiting, until next time, Connie 😊


I am living my dream life in the country! I love photography, travelling, cooking, baking and I even try my hand at quilting.

    1. Thanks. Be my guest 😊 I do live in a very pretty place, though today I’m not liking it very much…temperature is only -10C, very windy & we are having intermittent snow squalls. This too shall pass. Tomorrow morning will be a magical wonderland of snow.

      1. Only minus 10? Eek! I would freeze! I hate the cold. I’ve never been anywhere with deep snow. It’s about 10 degC in England, grey, but dry. Can’t wait to get back to the greek sunshine next year!
