I'm feeling particularly sunny and happy today. Maybe it's because it's sunny outside, with a clear blue sky and delightfully cool temperatures. Maybe it was almost 30 miles of biking on country roads before 10 a.m. Maybe it's because a new neighbor delivered a fresh hot loaf of banana bread to my door this morning. Maybe it's because it's now been a full month since the last time I had to commute on the Washington DC Metro (which, don't get me wrong, provided pretty good service so long as you were willing to be crammed into a train with hundreds of other sweaty people and get your ass groped once or twice a month). Maybe it's that we're finally nearly unpacked and at last I know where my other pair of running shoes are.

There's really only one more thing that will make this first holiday in W3 (Walla Walla, Washington) absolutely perfect. Yes, a nap. Maybe after another piece of banana bread. Here's the August monthly report, although somehow August already feels really far away.
