Old sweatshirts and muck boots. Traipsing around out in the woods looking for deer sign. Found bird nests. Charcoal grilled suppers. The fiery sky at sunrise the past few mornings. Flower bulbs arriving in the mail. Rose colored granite found along a trail.
Simon's persistence. Belly laughing at the end of the day on Friday with coworkers after a really long week. A timely and very kind letter from a former student. Checking the blooms on the peach tree every evening when I get home from work .
Strawberries at breakfast. Chris' inventiveness. A warmed up car on chilly mornings. Toasted rice green tea. Essential oil diffusers. The little waterfall discovered up behind our house. It's small but beautiful.
Socks with my Birkenstocks. And not caring how ridiculous it is. Singing along to Willy Nelson's song, "Buddy," and horrifying my juniors with my racket. Dogs sleeping underfoot.
