I am grateful for cool breezes felt at mountaintops, the immeasurable cuteness of baby cottontail rabbits and the nearby chatter of finches.

I am grateful for wild mushrooms, and the local mycological society. Our boletus season is in full swing. Hurrah! May every mushroom hunter fill his/her basket with ease.

 

And for you non-mushroom hunters: tundra wildflowers (usually over 11K) are a sight to behold: miniature, yet perfect in form. Visiting tundra produces unstoppable gratitude.

I am grateful to have a fit husband. This morning, DH fished a pair of 35 year old custom-made bicycling shorts out of his closet and pulled them on. They fit perfectly. (Then we zipped off to get in 15 miles on the bike trail: him on a unicycle, me on an adult trike before borrowing a pair of recumbents and getting in another 5 miles. Yay!)



35 y-o bike shorts that fit: RAWR!

Good point, @epster! I'm grateful that my county college has an extensive program for "Lifelong Learning", as well as bus trips! A few months ago, I completed a 6-segment certificate program for nonprofit management.
