the sun filtered through cold hitting my windows without leaves interfering. it's strong and true and makes cleaning satisfying and frustrating. i love the smell of clean wood. and the bleachy scent of the kitchen floor. the dishwasher humming along with sarah harmer belting out from my lovely bose ipod dock that sits on the kitchen island. a little fire in the dining room stove. and a cat on a folded quilt soaking in the heat from the fire and the light from the sun. sleep comes easily on days like this. a busy morning of accomplishment followed by a lazy afternoon.


  1. This sounds so inviting! I hope you had a Merry Christmas and that 2012 brings to you much success, good fortune, health, happiness and most importantly love.

    I feel like taking a nap after reading your post!

  2. I hope I can summon up enough energy to Spring clean in January. I am inspired after reading your post and hope I can hang on to that feeling when the hard work begins. Best wishes for the New Year, and look forward to connecting with you in 2012.

  3. The satisfaction and contentment of time well spent, seeing that achievement and being able to bask in it -- and the cat had the easiest part of all! :) Wishing you a very happy new year!

  4. That is just the perfect day. I like it.
    A comfy cosy feeling..
    I love your cat
    Best wishes for a happy New Year
