I am so grateful for
- the yardwork that brings neighbors together on warm fall weekends. While raking the side yard yesterday we chatted with our tenant who was coming in from errands, as well as our next door neighbors who were cutting branches away from their roof.
- free firewood from kind neighbors. We will need to dry for a few months, but on some cool night, the branches formerly skimming the neighbors' roof will warm our home.
- movie nights with my family, even if I have yet to stay awake for an entire film.
- mechanically inclined brothers who will (hopefully) repair my finicky van this afternoon.
