That's my kind of perfect day too, minus the falling on the steps part. Whenever I get a day like that I realize how much more efficient I could be if I never had to leave the driveway...I spend too much time commuting every day.

I try so hard to get some "homesteading" in everyday-

I got up this morning put our bedclothes in the wash- hung them before leaving for work- got home from work took them down-
went to pick raspberries/golden-purple-red and black berries- got a whole peck full- and you can't even tell I picked!!!
I also picked about 14 yellow peppers to add to 1shotwade's Monster Mash- we now have 7 pints and 2 quarts of this killer hot sandwich spread- it should last until 2030!
canned the second roaster of tomato sauce- 7 more quarts-
after letting the berries soak in a mild vinegar water- I pulled out the most firm and filled 3 trays of the dehydrator with them-
the rest are in the fridge- to eat and be made into jam-
dinner was the already made stuffed peppers-
now- is couchtime- and wine time ;)
