...having a freezer full of meals for the next three weeks so I don't have to obsess about what to make for dinner in the weeks working up to closing on our house and our trip to Rome. All we'll need from the grocery store for the next three weeks is fresh fruits and dairy products.
...being able to cook said meals without 6 little hands involved (not that I don't enjoy cooking with them, but today I was in a Soulemama frame of mind).
...the smell (and taste...had to make sure it was turning out well) of homemade bolognese.
...an unplanned afternoon nap that lasted into the evening.
...finding time to knit a whole two rows on a baby sock.
