* The quietly falling snow reminds me of the Christmas hymn:"How silently, how silently the wondrous gift is given." And then I remember my thought on the first Christmas after producing my first child: "silently? WHAT?"
* The total relaxation of two dogs asleep on the sofa.
* I dry clothes on a rack (do not like the electric dryer) --it adds just the right amount of vapor to the dry winter air inside.
