      My computer desk overlooks my front yard, which is mostly grass-free, and landscaped with native plants. A flock of cardinals has been visiting every day for the past week or so. And the hummingbirds seem to have taken up permanent residence since spring. They like to sit on the very fine branches of the desert willow, and bob up and down in the breeze.

        Having one's desk facing a window with an outside view truly is awesome. I don't have a window with a decent outside view, but my desk is positioned so that every time I look up it is a distance view. And that is excellent for resting the eyes.

    A guy got stuck on a cherry picker that wouldn't bring him down from my neighbours 3rd story roof. I had fun listening to his buddy trying to keep him calm, whilst panicking.
    I had tomatoes, peppers and beans from my garden with pasta for my dinner, delicious.
    A neighbor died, which would be sad, but she was elderly and very frail, she'd expressed a wish to die soon, and having spent a fun Sunday with her extended family she died peacefully in her sleep - a good death.

    1) Just got a new and potentially good gig on hubby's ballroom dancing classes. They aren't paying much but it's free advertising.

    2) The electricity is on and the internet/phone connection is paid.

    3) Hubby is getting introduced to my niece via helping her with math. (She's never met her uncle as we became a couple after I moved away.) It's also made me realize I don't totally stink at math. 

    4) I'm cuddling with my dogs.

    5) I just finished reading an excellent book.

    6) I'm back on the internet and writing after a major computer crash.

    7) And not least! After 10 years I'm still in love with the man I intend to keep forever. Even when he makes me nuts.

    I love writing and being able to post on hubpages allows me to write on a daily basis.  Being able to write daily has also given me a deeper insight to myself.  I'm grateful for that.

    I'll go ahead and give this a go too!
    1. My last day of work in my retail job is on Saturday. 7 long years done!
    2. I can focus on making a career as a video game journalist(or journalist in general)for hubpages.
    3. I've got the best friends in the whole world. If it weren't for them I never would have even thought of leaving my horrible job.
    4. Being a gamer rocks so hard.
    5. Thank goodness it's Friday!
