My favorite was one time when they arranged stuffed animals on a bed, and one dog had sunglasses on it. It almost makes these ladies seem like family friends -- we don't see them and can't talk to them when we do, but little things they do tells me they make their jobs a little more fun for themselves.
Sometimes I'll take my work to an extra level too -- last weekend, I took the boys on a field trip to a nearby community college to do a little wireless network sniffing, in preparation for a meeting with the college's IT managers coming up in two weeks. Gabriel walked around some buildings with my small laptop, putting together a heatmap (he's done that at home so knows how), and Julian was tasked with navigation on the paper maps. They boys also got in a lot of running around, while I sat outside the locked buildings, with my laptop fitted with my little Wi-Spy antenna, checking out the RF activity in the WiFi bands. Not nearly as cool as making a flower out of toilet paper, I know.
On a different note, one of the original landscaping plants, a non-native hibiscus, was planted in direct view of the guest suite sliding door. It's flowering now, and it's a showy delight to see every time you walk down the hall.
It's time for some patio furniture so I can enjoy these plants sitting down!
