What I like about you

Some small local things I enjoy:

1. Knowing almost all of the neighbors on our block--if not by name, at least to wave at.

2. Being able to swing down to the library to pick up a book I reserved, and be home again in ten minutes. By bike. Without breaking a sweat.

3. Having a guest bedroom complete with a hide-a-bed (what do the rest of you call that particular furniture item, by the way?) that is allowing us to host a steady stream of visiting relatives this summer.

4. Browsing through the farmers' market on Wednesday evening with the setting sun in my eyes.

5. Whizzing down the hill into Madison Valley on the way to work.
