:: tasting the tomatoes which are ripening at great speed these days, and of course, rejoicing at the abundance of vegetables our garden provides for us at the moment.
:: riding my mountain bike a lot, whether it is a longer ride to the top of the nearest hill or just a quick ride around the house.
:: playing the guitar whenever I can. My fingers are toughening and the tunes I play are beginning to sound nice. Though, I still have so much to learn...
:: listening to Jack Johnson's songs, being inspired by his singing and playing.
:: looking at the blue sky and fluffy cumulus clouds on (lately) rare sunny days of this summer. It is a joy to put on my summer dresses whenever it is warm enough.
:: learning about the dragonflies by visiting a creek nearby and flipping through the pages of a book on dragonflies.
:: helping a colleague to ring hundreds of barn swallows. It is amazing to see huge flocks of swallows gathering in the evening above their roosting place.
:: reading Soule Mama’s blog over and over again, finding comfort in her words when I am lonely and despaired.
And of course I still spend 8 hours at work from Monday to Friday.
