Simple Joys So Abundant I Can Scoop Them Up



Sharing a simple summer lunch on our back deck together 



Giving a reading of my award-winning picture book




A summer walk in Crested Butte, Colorado



Our front deck on a Colorado cool summer morning



Walking our nature trail

“In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.” – John Muir




Walking in nature is my happy place!

So happy I am healthy and smart enough to walk regularly



My pansies give me joy every time I step outside

They have been happily blooming since late spring



“The earth laughs in Flowers” – Ralph Waldo Emerson



On our nature trail



Joy! She got up to bark when I sneezed! So, Summer, our

first sheltie from 1978 or so had all these moments when

she would bark – one was when I sneezed!


Summer passed that on to the next sheltie and so on and

So on and now in 2023 it’s like a bit of our first sheltie is still

With us!


Hope, our border collie does NOT bark when I sneeze…




Hope – Please, may I have some more.


“If you don’t own a dog, at least one,

there may not necessarily be anything wrong with you,

but there may be something wrong with your life.” – Roger Caras


Dogs definitely help make a house a home


Thoughts? Favorite simple joys? Dog person? Do flowers give you joy? Gardening?
