Simple Things Volume 9

Living In Green Grass is about being content and happy with the basic things around you. It is the little things in life that make it wonderful. Here are four of the simple things that made me smile this week.

Leave me a comment below and share some of your highlights.




I love free samples and I hit the jackpot on Monday. All this was waiting for me in my mail box. The best part was that there were no bills, only free samples. It was a wonderful way to start the week.





I have a hard time staying hydrated and often forget to drink. I started tracking my fluid intake on a white board this week. I also set hourly alarms on my phone to remind me to hydrate.  I have met my goal every day this week except one. A big improvement for me.





The inventor loves bugs. Better yet, she loves tormenting her sister when she catches creepy crawlies. She caught this dragonfly and wanted me to take a picture before releasing it.





You may wonder why a dried fish head is one of my weekly highlights. We walk past this every time we have errands or go to the library. Miss Crafty does the typical, “Ewwwwww” and quickly passes the fish. Meanwhile The Inventor stops to look and take note of all the parts. It makes me smile to see my two girls developing such unique and different personalities.



I hope you all had a good week and a better weekend.

    Great idea for remembering to hydrate. I should pass that along to my husband. He really struggles with that and he needs to drink!

      Nancy, if he has a smart phone there are lots of apps to track it as well. I have one on my phone called Hydro Drink Water. It has alarms that I can set that remind me to drink throughout the day.
