1. Fresh green beans from the garden drizzled with garlic infused olive oil. Every drop is worth its weight in gold. For tomorrow's dinner, I have something in mind for the white balsamic vinegar...can't wait!
2. The sweetest sound: Granddaughter's voice on the phone to me, "Hi Nonni, Hi Nonni!"
3. Crawled around the tomato plants on my hands and knees and got all the weeds pulled out of the garden. It is a gratifying effort.
4. The promise of cooler air has finally been fulfilled. It comes with evening, a definite cool breeze for which my spirits soar. We all agree to turn off the A/C and open the windows tonight.
