1. Fall colors and foliage. Some of my favorites are the asters (white, yellow, and purple) and rabbitbrush.
2. Morning walks. We got to all go together on Monday morning. This week we saw heron, beavers, a hawk, and deer.
3. My tiny family. It was lovely having a three day weekend with them.
Bonus joy: potato salad, getting in the pool and the sauna, hanging out and writing with Calyx, that sweet thing my friend said about me, breakfast burritos, a big glass of cold clean water, a warm shower, clean sheets, laundry, good TV, books, podcasts, sitting next to Eric on the couch doing nothing, cooking, being able to make appointments online instead of having to call, mail, my new pillow for “side sleepers,” training with Shelby, reading in bed at night while Eric and Ringo sleep.
