Simple Pleasures

Friday, June 12, 2009

I was reading a blog post by Ez on Creature Comforts today about simple pleasures and I got to thinking about the simple pleasures in life. First of all, the fact that they are simple means you have to slow down enough to appreciate them. Secondly, there's the part about finding pleasure and seeing beauty in the mundane. Right now, it's the fresh plums in our fruit bowl and the first sip of my morning French-pressed coffee that are my simple pleasures. What are yours?

I can't talk about those first sips of morning coffee without remembering the old Folger's Coffee commercials. We all know Folger's didn't get much right in the way of good coffee (check out how weak the coffee looks in the commercials below), but their commercials fully captured those first sips of early morning coffee. Funny, but back then, "fresh-ground" and "mountain-grown" were the standards for good coffee. Just for fun, I thought I'd post a couple of my favorite Folger's coffee commercials from the 70's and 80's:

Why can't I wake up looking and feeling like this? Gotta love the blissful morning stretch.

Here's a funny Starbucks commercial:

Funny----I liked the middle one but I'll have to say the Starbucks one made me laugh.
