2. Taking a leisurely evening bike ride through the neighborhood and smelling all the barbecue.
3. Being barefoot almost all the time. Even at work when I can get away with it.
4. Sitting of the front porch glider with Martha, enjoying a hot fudge sundae, and lazily watching the world go by.
5. And best of all this week - My former secretary called and invited me to go horseback riding. The last time I rode a horse was over 20 years ago when she was still my secretary. After about 20 minutes I discovered that riding a horse is much like riding a bike - you don't forget. And then spent a glorious hour galloping at full speed across meadows. Oh what a feeling! Pure freedom and joy and exhilaration! I don't think I'd ever want to own a horse, but I definitely need to wrangle an invite to ride more often (once my nether regions recover : )
