January 15....a photo a day....

Entertaining me is easy.... I love the little things in life. Like this...

The yard is full of bunny trails...and it's nowhere near Easter....














At night if there is a moon... it lights up the yard and I can see them from the bedroom window when they move. If they sit still...just another lump of snow...
Up one side of the hedge and down the other they go...right next to the neighbour's house on one side....and down our sidewalk on the other.














Out front... they made a trail straight through the deep stuff to get under the tree...... their whole body sinks right down into it on every jump... it's more a body trail.
















Here is another "little" but wonderful thing.... fresh homemade Tuscan Peasant Bread. One of today's loaves has the added flavour of dried apricots and cranberries ... the other, sun dried tomatoes, basil and black olives. It's fun to experiment with new additions.











... and it just tastes that much better with a little smear of real butter....
mmmmmmmmmmmmm














Even this is a little thing that makes me happy... a shiny clean butter dish filled with fresh yellow butter...... silly the little things that give us pleasure some days isn't it?

What a lovely, uplifting post. Thank you so much for sharing these photos and bits of gratitude.
Now, like Serena, I didn't know about the cooking blog, so I'm off to explore.

What interesting pictures of those bunny trails. I wonder if they huddle together under that big tree?

The bread looks delicious.

Love the bunny trails! I've always loved rabbits and used to have a lop earred bunny that lived in the house and was litter trained. Such a sweet little girl, she was.

You are so right- it is the little things that bring us the most joy. Such a shame that so many people get fixated on the things that makes them unhappy and they completely miss the wonderful little things that are all around them.

Great photo's and what a great philosophy... I too enjoy the little things. I love the tree with all that snow. I'm really enjoying the snow shots. PS: I'm caught up with my photos.
