Better Living Bit by Bit
Yesterday, my husband put sprinklers in our back yard. It's one of a thousand tiny steps to making our house and life more livable. Our house is over a hundred years old with a lot of issues. We live in a "dynamic state" and, between the big renovations, we're always making minute improvements that will make things easier, more efficient, or just more pleasant. Things like installing recessed lights in the basement. The ceiling looks so high now! Nipping off all of the nail points that were sticking out under the eaves. So smooooooth! Organizing the baby changing station. Everything in reach!
Installing sprinklers took about half the day and a lot of manual labor plus problem-solving sessions, but our lives just got slightly easier. Looking forward to turning the knob this weekend instead of standing outside holding the hose over my hydrangeas and grass seedlings. Incremental changes eventually build to a big change... at least that's the mantra we keep chanting.
