1) Making a good dinner after short cutting on meals after a super busy week. Reminds me how much I enjoy cooking. 2) Swimming laps in the late afternoon. It just makes me feel so good! Like, I’m a kid again. 3) Right now, as I’m sitting on the kitchen stool, a gentle breeze is lapping in through the screen door. It comes and goes, but every time it happens, I have to stop and take it in. 4) Knowing that my husband will be trying a new vanilla ice cream recipe (#33!) for dessert tonight. 5) My wonderful readers who send me incredibly kind, supportive, and encouraging e-mails. You’re the best! The very best.
