New Hampshire in the Morning

I just want to take a nap

M – Life is so stressful we sometimes forget to savor the small pleasures we are treated to from time to time. For me, a good nap is highly underrated. Since we get up at 3:15-ish for our morning show, a mid-day siesta rocks. I rotate my napping places. Sometimes it’s in bed. Other times it’s on the leather sofa in the family room. Still other times, it’s on the too-small love seat in the living room where in have to curl up to fit.

Another of life’s sweet moments is when I find a restaurant that knows how to make a Jamaican margarita, which doesn’t use a commercial sour mix but instead a nice lime juice instead, shaving about 400 unwanted calories from my favorite cocktail.

 

A few others include getting that last slice of week-old bread in the bag that doesn’t have any mold on it. Also, finding a clean pair of underwear in my drawer after thinking there would be none. I love it when I can see a storm coming while cutting the lawn and I finish up just as the first raindrops hit the lawnmower.

 

I don’t need top be rich or famous when I can get through the week with a few of these simple pleasures to keep me sane.
