1. Rejoiced in the soaking downpour all day long. I imagined every plant, animal and blade of grass sighing with relief as the rain returned life to our cracked ground.
2. Ditched my usual market for a better one a few miles farther away. Larger selections, better baggers, pleasant music means I am a much happier shopper. I like to be excited about choosing our food and creating meals. If grocery shopping becomes a drudgery, then it's time for a change.
3. Chocolate croissants, seeded bread and other treats from Breadcraft make me feel like I am still on vacation.
