Fun perks of working from home

We all know there are numerous perks to working from home, whether it's setting your own hours, being accessable to your children or just avoiding that long commute to and fro each day. But there are also a lot of fun perks... things we probably never even considered when we made our choice. And today, I'm taking full advantage of one -- working outside!

Being that it's Friday, it's a nice way to kind of start my weekend early while not actually shurking my duties. This morning, while I was drinking my first cup of coffee on the patio, I was enjoying the cool weather and really didn't want to go back into my office. I wasn't sure if I'd get distracted, but I figured if I did, it was just a simple matter of packing up my laptop and going back indoors -- certainly worth a try anyway. And it's been wonderful; I've accomplished a lot but still feel more relaxed energetic. Must be the fresh air chasing away the afternoon slump. I thought working in my pj's was the bomb but this even beats that! LOL

What unexpected fun perks have you discovered you can indulge in and still be productive in your day?

This is why I love working from home! I get to do work on my own time, and my schedual is soo flexible! I haven't missed a moment spending time with my son (who just turned one year old this month!). That has to be my favorite perk, I spend my whole day with my son. We play together, talk together, eat together, wake up together, I love it! I get to be a stay-at-home mom and still make my own income! I actually get to raise my son! Every morning, I wake up so relaxed and worry-free, I wouldn't change my life for anything.
