1. A decent brat on the grill 2. Sunny weather 3. Naked women (categorically)

@satanachist I hope that I can host you for a true BBQ on my smoker. 

1. Halibut cheeks in the fridge 2. Having the luxury to pour out a bad beer (why people like sour beer makes little sense to me- I get the bitterness craze, don't like it but I get it, sour I don't get at all). 3. That awareness that the crazy sometimes is generated by others and I just need to step outside of it (wish that was automatic!)

1. Recovering from food borne illness. 2. In-laws on their way home 3. Ginger ale on a punky stomach

treuntas:
I like only as a show of solidarity. Punk stomachs are evil. Feel better. 

1. Having friends who trust me enough to let the family use their cabin 2. Fireweed in bloom 3. Skating a mini-ramp and not eating it

1. Seward Alaska on a sunny day 2. My four year old looking in the mirror and saying "I want to grow more freckled" 3. Having enough sun to enjoy time in the shade

1. A moment to myself 2. A magical slowing in my brain between the impulse to speak and actually vocalizing what I want to say (like a filter but better) 3. One day of in-laws down (almost)

1. Great haircut 2. Got taxes and insurance and more taxes taken care of last night 3. Because I slept in my hempy yoga pants I am still in my pjs at the end of the day

treuntas:
1.  Having keys to the new house arrive today, 2. Daughters giddiness figuring out something new in her iPad game, 3. Cold beer with a buddy I've not seen for a month. 

1. Reading that you signed a lease (will be super geeked when you get a job) 2. Running barefoot through the grass 3. Giving away some bike pedals I've been holding onto for years to somebody who needed them

1. Full propane bottle for the grill ( I know gas is far inferior but it is where I am at) 2. Walking in the mountains and being strong enough to carry the four year old when he craps out. 3. My four year olds imagination

1. The concrete guy who we paid six months ago to do a bar sink downstairs showing up to put it in 2. Waffles 3. Getting a few of the mountain of chores taken care of

1. A decent cubano sandwich 2. Sunshine 3. When the welling up anxiety or anger can be redirected into the joy circuit 

Back here on the SG. It isn't a substitute for real friends but fills a void of some sort. Hope you have been and are well. 1. Having friendly neighbors 2. Green Spot whiskey 3. Camping

1. Hummingbirds 2. Horses 3. Sunshine. I'm tapering off meds with 5HTP and tyrosine (no great evidence for either but the logic that more building blocks for seratonin and dopamine may result in more of it being around makes sense, a little magnesium might help too as I think it is part of the enzymatic machinery involved in seratonin production). So far no teeth clenching anger (early sign of depression for me) but it is the season of light. Hope you transition to thriving soon!

1. Legs 2 . The luxury of feeling joy when programmed to view the world through a filter of bitter rage 3. Biking uphill

1. we have some semblance of a neighborhood, I mean I know many of my neighbors and have them in the house once in a while.  2. baked brie 3. when kids play together well

1. My four year old finally decided to ride his tag a long bike and loved it. 2. salmon in butter 3. the return of the season of light

1. The mountains this time of year are majestic (you will love being in proximity to the Cascades wish I did) 2. Chinese take away (eating out in Portland is fan-fucking-tastic wish I was eating there right now) 3. Exercise (4. The Pogues)
