1. My home has central air conditioning.

2. I know someone who has a pool in their backyard and am allowed liberal use.

3. New flowers pop up in my yard all the time, it's nice I get to enjoy so much beauty.

Sandrine,

I so understand.  I'm so sorry for your loss, too.

1. One of my best friends just survived a severe heart-attack. Grateful I got to hang out with him yesterday.

2. Another very close friend just survived a potentially fatal car wreck.

3. A widow friend of mine just became a grandmother for the first time.

1. I just bought and put up a 9 foot dragon Halloween inflatable.... so excited!
2. Daughter was SO EXCITED about the inflatable -I was still outside messing with it when she came up the hill from the bus and her expression was priceless!
3. NG just shook his head over said inflatable and muttered something about our forever home needing a huge flat lawn and more extension cords for my new fetish.   ;D

1. My oldest son found out today that he has received permission to take two college classes that are supposed to be taken one after the other at the same time. Which means he will be able to graduate on time.

2. I spent the evening playing games with friends.

3. After almost a year of testing the doctors have finally figured out what illness my brother in law suffers from and the treatment they prescribed is working.

1. I am on vacation, surrounded by beautiful mountains.

2. My mom is back home taking care of my very geriatric dog- I'm so lucky she does this for me as he has gotten to be quite the handful.

3. It's so nice getting to sleep through the night.

Worst mood ever lately.  Maybe this will help...

1) My garden is still somehow producing even in November.  Cabbage, brussels sprouts, kale, broccoli and collards!

2) Taking our 11 year old down to Philly tonight to see our longtime favorite singer-songwriter, Josh Ritter, and have dinner with one of my favorite former students from the early 2000s.   Grateful my daughter still wants to hang out with me! For now...

3) There are 4.5 weeks left in this miserable semester at my miserable job (ok, misery isn't really a good thing but a break from it in 4.5 weeks is).

1.  My 2 teenage boys played board games with us last night and said it was more fun than they expected.

2.  I needed the extra hour of sleep last night and ready to face another week.

3.  Great message in church today.  My soul was nourished.

1. My home was filled with company, laughter, and love yesterday at our Bago.

2. I've made such dear, close friends on this journey and through this board and their kindness, support, and love was felt so strongly yesterday. I appreciate everyone who made the trip and just wish we all lived closer.

3. The reminders of the day still warm my heart and make me smile this morning. I hope the hugs hold me over until the next one.

I miss how happy I was with you.

2. This month as I near the first anniversary of her death I have been able to remember my wife with bittersweet joy and not crushing grief.
3. I have an adventure in Death Valley to look forward to.
