1. Opening the mailbox to find packages! Lately these contain books for school and studies.
2. The sky darkens at dinner time and I comment that we are in for our daily, late afternoon thunderstorm. But this one is different as the sky turns to one solid sheet of gray and the rain steadily pours down for hours. Time enough to brew coffee and sit on the porch listening to the rain. Mist settles into the hollows, a buck comes to the tree for apples, everything is quiet but the rain, and the whole world sighs.
3. Steve and I watch The Namesake together. The scenes and culture of India are beautiful and fascinating.
