All of us have our thing around the home. Some people can’t operate if their refrigerator isn’t perfectly organized. Others can’t stand even the tiniest bit of dust on a surface. My little joys? A clean kitchen counter, free of any clean or dirty dishes and crumbs. I have an open floor layout so my living room, dining room, and kitchen are all one big room, meaning my kitchen can be seen as soon as I walk in the door. When I enter my home and see a clutter-free and clean kitchen, I am a happy camper.
The other thing? Making my bed. I love when I enter my bedroom and my bed has been made. I feel calm when I can go into my bedroom and see the bed nicely made and ready for me to jump in at night. I rarely leave the house without making my bed. The only exception is on those rare occasions when I have forgotten to set my alarm. I wake up in a panic and have to leave as soon as possible, leaving the bed undone. Don’t you hate mornings like that?
My balcony is also my happy place. I am fair skinned and I try to avoid sitting in the sun. My balcony never gets any direct sunlight, which means I can relax and soak in the fresh air all I want! As a matter of fact, I am sitting out here as I write this today. The other great part of my balcony is that it is fully screened in. Therefore, there are no bugs, which is another huge bonus for me. I can also have dinner out there by myself or with a couple of friends. It is not a huge balcony but perfect for intimate settings.
What is your thing, and what areas of your home make you happy?
