laying in bed a bit and dozing off and on, the coolness of the house when i do rise, fresh air and a gentle breeze before the thermometer climbs, conversations that involve listening and back and forth responses, friends who let me vent and don't try and fix what they can't, fresh sheets and clean floors, reading with the dog in my lap, teaching them that basil and peaches and tomatoes all taste amazing together, especially when you add fresh mozzarella and balsamic vinegar, him offering to walk the dog because i just didn't have it in me tonight
