Clean sheets, clean bodies

Today’s #OneGoodThing is the glorious feeling of slipping into bed with fresh sheets, a feeling made lovelier after a shower. This is even greater because Paisley had a bath too! Day 47 of 365. And Day 778 in a row (here’s the first 366 & the following 365)! 1 year ago today: My first standing shower in…

New peach tree and a composter

The warm winter sun feels more like spring and has put us in the mood to be in our garden!
