* To gather round a table in a convivial restaurant with relatives by law not seen for a while and catch up, gather ideas, exclaim 'bout where lives are taking us and in the end hugging goodbye 'till another time.
* The weeds in the east garden have been haunting me--at last I clear out one third of the mess.
* Weeding out indoor possessions--the yarn stash, holey worn-out faded stained clothes, books (torture).
* Finding that someone I usually watch TV with dislikes a show we thought we wanted to follow so we won't watch it anymore. Relief.
