Proof I am Easy to Please

Finding a simple, yet flattering tshirt in my favorite color at Old Navy for $2.97. $2.97!! I’m still happy about this a day later. I’m also happy I got Buddy in the shot. Things that also have me happy at the moment:

– Choir practice is tonight and I’ve gotten better at not rushing and settling in and singing with everyone else.  I get so excited I tend to be the teeniest bit ahead instead of right in the pocket.  It makes a world of difference, it’s hard to explain, but I feel more like I am truly making music when I’m in the pocket with everyone else.

– My windows are clean, although they missed a pane and they are coming back to get it.  I’m happy that I bothered to call instead of having it bug me until I forgot about it.

– My holiday cleaning starts this weekend.  As I say every year, I enjoy this work, getting the place into clean, sparkling, holiday-ready spirit. Afterwards I will start playing holiday music and eating too much pumpkin pie.

  1. I so admire your ritualistic cleaning bouts; I wish I would do that. I spruce up in such random starts and stops with inconsistent ambition. Is it something your mom did or if not how did you initiate it?

  2. My mother made a big deal around Christmas and decorated the whole house, beautifully, but I think the twice yearly cleaning thing is all mine. It’s like having a fresh clean slate twice a year to face the world with.
