Today I Love Rainy Fridays

The lawn shrugging off its covers

Today I love rainy Fridays and the sweet smell of the earth unlocking its frozen secrets even though it is way too early for it to be doing that. I love the quiet, comforting sound of the rain and the runoff from roofs and downpipes. I love the dark and brooding light of a wet and rainy day, love the way it makes the fireplace more...

Today I Love The Sun Piercing The Clouds

Big water and muddy rivers

Today I love the sun piercing through the clouds and casting moody light over the melting landscape. I love the smell of earth and water when it is mild and thawing everywhere. I love that I am looking around for flowers to be blooming even though they are weeks off and even though winter is far from over and will probably return with colder temperatures...

Today I Love The Dining Room

The day with the ribbons removed ...

Today I love the dining room which is more than half way back to being a dining room again and has only about 30% of the boxes left in it that it had and they are stacked neatly in a row. I love that the music room is suddenly more like a room as well and there is space to move around walking in a...

Today I Love Sleeping Late On Purpose

Glorious mid-morning sky

Today I love sleeping late on purpose and waking up slowly to sunlight and promises of mild weather and maybe some adventure. I love piano music playing spontaneously while breakfast is cooking. I love the sunlight shining in on the breakfast table like it used to do back home in Kemble where I grew up. I love the glorious mid morning sky of clouds and con-trails and sun. I...

Today I Love Lazy Sunday Mornings

Snow-People! Ready to go do snow-people things

Today I love lazy Sunday mornings with the sun shining in on breakfast and the day threatening to just slide by without letting anything important happen. I love when Sundays remind me of all the things that could happen and have happened in the past, like family reunions and sporting events and day trips and picnics and things that just happen spontaneously. I love that the...

Today I Love This Warm And Balmy Day

Perfect outdoor coffee weather.

Today I love this warm and balmy day of perfect snowman snow and soothing sunny waves of vitamin D inducing light and warmth. I love that I am seriously considering coffee outside and that there may be very little that can stop me from doing that, even though today is the day that I'm scheduled to work on getting the office in order so that work...

Today I Love All The Sun

The day putting on its best ...

Today I love all the sun that is shining out there and making this world sparkle. It is no replacement for a friend taken from us too soon, but there are sun dogs already and the sky is such a blue and the snow is so white where it is untouched, that it is like the world has dressed in its best for...

Today I Love The Positive People

Weather getting ready to change ...

Today I love the positive people that have informed my journey. I love especially the ones that are missing now, but that is the way of life. You miss the water when the well runs dry. I love that I drank deeply when I had the chance and will continue to do so from the quenching proffered draughts from those still here. I...

Today I Love Being Joyous

My beautiful home area ...

Today I love being joyous, and I have a recommendation from my doctor to do just that, so I accept the challenge. Joyous it is, stand back world, this is going to get messy and good. I love that I am still flip-flopping on plans for the band, but leaning hard toward going with my original ideas ... if I can find space for the gear to...
