    Pleasure of a Job Well Done

    The lawn is mowed, my neighbors have said hello, so now I can sit and relax a touch before my daughter arrives home from school. It feels quite warm outside, but the thermostat says that it is only 66 degrees.  I am just glad I have one more chore out of the way for the day.  It feels so good…
