Simple Pleasure

This is how she spends her time. Weeding the grass and picking away all the dried leaves in the morning before the sun gets too hot. After breakfast she sits in front of the telly reading the papers listening to the news as she waits for evening. Watering the plants at dusk before taking a shower for dinner. A daily routine in her twilight years. A far cry from the days when she spent 10hrs, 6 days a week running her company. With a dependable maid to keep an eye on her. To be sure she remembers to take her medication and meals. She hardly speaks and has never watch any chinese/english series. This is how she finds simple pleasure. With her plants.
