cleaning and baking and laundering and generally being domestic, fresh homemade strawberry bread, gaggles of old guys pickin' banjos at the farmer's market across the street, hugs from the people of FCoB, singing together, mom's flirtations scoring her free dessert, cooking out, horses grazing on the hill at the end of my street, and my Dad: he of the very specific handshake, ever-willing to engage in public silliness, be-friender of every person I've brought home over the years, strong, compassionate, quick-witted, absent-minded hummer, and always appreciative of the well-placed fart joke.
