I’m wondering this morning how I can feel so over-the-top about something as simple as clean windows! Both inside and out, they got a thorough cleaning yesterday. Being off work for a few days, Claus has engaged himself in some major projects around the house. Two days ago was a much-needed pruning of shrubbery; yesterday it was pressure-washing the house, porch and windows.

To look out from the inside and have a clear view is exhilarating. It’s amazing how spider webs, bug residue and plant mold can ruin the view. But today the sparkling windows give me a contended feeling. I must be weird, but clean is good!
It's funny, though, how getting one thing done seems to call for another. I know the blinds need taking down and scrubbing, but they have been in place for 18 years and really could stand to be replaced. Claus has agreed we should replace and said he would hang them. I have to move fast while he's still in the mood!
Today, he plans to replace a deteriorated wood facing and walk-through door in the car garage. This is another project that will make me happy indeed.
Hopefully, we will receive rain later today from Hurricane Issac as it moves north. Not having to grab the water hose and spray the pots today will be a nice respite. How am I going to handle all this happiness?
What about you? What little things make you happy?
