こんばんは。How’s it going?

So today I was thinking that I turn off a lot of lights that are left on here at home. Turning off lights is just natural… we should conserve energy! When we leave a room, we should turn off the light, right? But sometimes I feel like I am the only one in the house that does it since I am constantly doing it. 😡

But then I thought that there are probably many times that everyone else turns off the lights, and I wouldn’t ever notice this since there is nothing to see. 🤔

So now I wonder about other things that I cannot see, for instance when others tidy up or put things away, I wouldn’t really notice it. I should try to recognize and appreciate when the house is clean because someone must have cleaned it… the house doesn’t clean itself, does it?

Sometimes when I’m on the other side of the equation, tidying up the house, closing cabinets, etc. and no one notices or says anything, I feel a little unappreciated. But you know, I shouldn’t mind not receiving recognition since it might be difficult for others to notice the things that cannot be seen. It’s enough to be satisfied with contributing to a healthy living space even without receiving praise. 😌

Anyways, that’s my “deep thought” for the day.

“Fajita Taco” Cedar Park, 2018

In other news, it’s National Taco Day today! 🌮 And as you can see from the photo above, we did partake. 😀

By coincidence, Mariko decided to make fajitas for dinner (she didn’t know about the occasion). Well, since it is taco day, we had to put the fajitas in tortillas. Respect the taco!

I hope you had a good Thursday. 😊
