  • 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 so good 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.
