The daily details of my life are pretty routine and actually boring. The same things need to be done each week, laundry, meals, cleaning, school work, farm work, laundry, meals, cleaning, etc.
And each job usually require the use of the same tools. So it all gets pretty boring. But it really brightens my day to have something new. Like a new bottle of cleaner that I bought for next to nothing at the drugstore with coupons. Or new laundry soap that was a sample. Or lighting a new candle on the kitchen windowsill, that one of the kids gave me for Christmas.
Each of these seemingly little things can really make my day. It just adds a little variety and newness to an otherwise boring job.
