In gratitude . . .
Fresh local produce on sale
My chest freezer--where the sale-priced fresh local produce now resides, enough to last until mid-winter
Family cooking together in the kitchen
Students who really want it
The calendar on my computer I said I'd never use but do, religiously
Kittens running like a herd of elephants through the house all the time
Going to bed earlier = getting up earlier
Fresh, ripe peaches (Anaar, they are available in America for one week, in August, in New England)
Cool weather--an early harbinger of Autumn
Bonus: Only 10, count em TEN, more days until school starts. Oh there will be a celebration on that glorious morning!
