In a fit of gratitude, I made a list of the things I loved about my life the other day. I managed eight solid things. None were frivolous and one prompted the whole exercise: I love warm February days. This beautiful February day set into motion a very productive weekend. It felt fantastic to get some good old fashioned garden clean up done with my husband by my side and the sheep grazing freely about. It makes you feel optimistic about the rest of your life.
