1. I spent some time weeding in the yard. It's a tedious chore, and yet I love the satisfaction of a clean flower bed. I appreciate having dirt under my fingernails and a sore back.
2. The kitchen smells faintly of strawberries and basil.
3. I managed to get a few new strings on my guitar. It sounds better, it feels better, and I'm excited to play for a while today. I've finally tested the theory that the boys can't hear me if I close the doors and turn up their sound machines, so I can practice after they go to bed.
