Habit simplifies our movements, makes them accurate, and diminishes fatigue.
I am a creature of habit.As a younger person I imagined myself to be more spontaneous, but in actual fact I probably didn't achieve as much as I do now. P:-) and I do not live together but we see each other every day and depending on the day, we slip into comfortable habits. We know what the day holds, and generally what the week holds. And the days and weeks follow in a predictable sequence.
I do have some trouble with housekeeping habits. I do try to factor in certain cleaning routines at specific times but so often I run out of time. I somehow thought that when I grew up I would turn into my mother and become organized and methodical. No such luck! I should probably get back to Flylady.

The past week has been very quiet. I have been unwell and had a week off work with a cold and a chesty cough. While I did not enjoy being sick I did enjoy luxuriating in a week at home. It was my first sick leave all year. I am generally very healthy.
The ornamental plums on next-door's footpath have begun blossoming. It is still another month until Spring but they always seem to be early.
