Simple Pleasures

Today I'm going to spoil me.
Sleep in for an extra hour ... or three.
Stay in pajamas well past noon,
though this day will be over much too soon.

Warm fuzzy slippers on my feet, 
hazelnut coffee, a special treat.
These simple pleasures are all too rare
when I treat myself to some extra care.

The cat, she's purring, happy I'm here.
Enjoying the fact that "mommy" is near.
No watch on my wrist, no place to be,
just curled up on the couch watching T.V.

In my hectic life such days are few
so it's time to refresh, relax, renew.
The simple pleasures that I love best
are the ones that give me my much needed rest.

    this reminds me of the Bruno Mars song. Today I don't feel like doing anything!! It's called the Lazy Song. If you haven't seen it. You gotta check it out and also the parody of it done by females!
