Some Little Things I Feel Happy About Today

Friday Fill-In #74

My answers are in bold.
1. For me boredom is the opposite of creativity.

Good: Remember a few weeks ago when I mentioned hoping I could talk J into adding a new closet/dressing room onto our house? Well, his brother (the house-building brother) and nephew arrived about a half-hour ago and they’re framing it in today! ~~~~~Twirl!!!!!~~~~~~
