Gratitude – Hot water, clearing the decks, slow recovery

I am grateful for hot water, and now, as much as I want, heated by cheap natural gas instead of expensive electricity. As part of our renovation, the on-demand gas tankless water heater was hooked up today. It’s not a lot different at the faucet. Frankly when you are standing there about to wash your hands, it’s maybe a bit worse. It takes a little longer to warm up (not much longer, maybe 10 or 15 seconds). I like thinking of how efficient that is though, and I think it will be significantly better on that front than the 57 year old hot water tank we started this shindig with. I also like that laundry will no longer have any bearing on when we can take showers.

I am grateful for some productive time at my computer today. I’ve managed to clear through a bunch of little tasks that have been keeping me from the big meaty projects I’ve got to get done in the next few weeks, and that’s a relief, because not getting to them has been stressing me out a bit.

I am grateful for recovery, albeit slower than I’d like, from whatever is going on in my left knee. I’m still moving slow, but I’m a bit quicker than I was yesterday and it doesn’t hurt as much as it did then, either.
