1120.  Clean house;

1121.  Re-appreciation for the particular personalities in my household after being away from them for a bit and seeing the dynamics of other families – oh how I love our little three person dynamics, foibles and all;

1122.  Motivation for some hard tasks;

1123.  little tiny tomato on the vine giving hope for the gardener;

1124.  Unexpected day at home with J and in the garden;

1125.  Hiking with J – Peak a Week number one!

  1. I would be so grateful for a clean house too 🙂

  2. Love these, but this one is my personal favorite…”Being tired from all the good things in life.” I can’t think of any better tired than that!
