One of my favorite things to do is to clean stuff. I love the way my home smells after I've dusted it with lemon Pledge. I like the way the bathroom tile shines when I've removed all the soap scum. I like the one bowl of fruit on clean kitchen counters. I like how bright the refrigerator is after I've tossed all the plastic containers of food I should have eaten a week ago. I especially love climbing into bed with a good book and clean sheets. Life's simple pleasures really are the best.

This was snow a few years ago. I hope we don't get any this winter but ... One of the water mains on Edinburgh burst today. They fixed it but I freaked a bit when my toilet started burping. I thought I had some burst pipes or something. All's well now though. Whew.

The little tree by my garage is so cute. I also put candles in the windows of the house. Christmas these days is more about the real meaning rather than the whole Santa thing. Isn't it true that times of our lives come and go. Sometimes our days are exciting. Sometimes our days are sad. Sometimes our days fill us with a warm contentment. Then that darn icy wind of life blows again!
