Yesterday morning I got caught up agonizing over my bookkeeping. There were a couple of tricky points that meant I had to keep switching between files and websites, and I was getting a bit desperate.
My mother was observing this and when I was done said, “What would bring you pleasure today?” I had to laugh to have my blog post quoted back at me.
I wasn’t sure right away, but as I waited for the answer to come I realized it was similar to the first time: I wanted to go for a long walk outdoors. (The weather is gorgeous at the moment.) Luckily, I was not only able to do that. I put in an hour or two working in the garden, too, storing up sunshine and fresh air.
