I love that it is Wednesday and that's the day I take off to another place to work. I love that I have...

Today I Love Feeling Well Rested

Welcome to the café

Today I love feeling well rested after a good night's sleep. I love that I have a a seemingly overwhelming amount of things to do ahead of me, but that I am as yet not overwhelmed. I love that I am prepared for that to happen, but hopeful that it won't. I love that for some strange reason I have a calm, wait and see attitude toward how I'll...

Today I Love The Champions I Know

Slanting sunlight

Today I love the champions I know in my life. I love champions like Orit Shimoni who brings so much fixing to a broken world despite its ugly determination to continue to crack in unpredictable directions. I love champions like the people all around me who volunteer and step up when there is need. I love the people in my town who have moved mountains to house refugees here....

Warmth ...

Today I love this heavy moody day. I love that the marketing was finished up and I was in the car when it started to rain. I love the Saturday morning Farmers' Market so much that even dull grey rainy days are beautiful there. I love getting my week's bread and eggs and bacon and veggies there and my Saturday morning breakfast as well. I love this town, the people I...

Today I Love Black Friday

Glowing thin parts of the darksome clouds ...

Today I love black Friday, though in truth, I don't actually get to experience it much up here in Canada. I love that people get that excited about the holiday season this early, even if it is a commercial kind of excitement. I love that it does seep over the border and into the Great White North to some extent and that all our flyers...

Today I Love Snow Tires

A hint of snow ...

Today I love snow tires and their reassuring rumble as they buzz down the road underneath me. I love that they are on in time for the weather that seems to have landed on us, though I'm pretty sure it won't stay and we'll have some nice autumn days yet. I love that days like this make me feel like I should be heading for the rink to...

Today I Love Days Out

It's beginning to look a lot like ...

Today I love days out on the road with nothing in my home pressing me and distracting me from my work. I love to work from home, but I love to get away one day a week at least and remind myself what it's like to have that job that takes me places and makes me cope without the comforts of home. I love that...

I love intentions that make me feel good because they are good. I love knowing that even if I don't get everything done, trying will be an accomplishment in itself and I will revel in the success of having set out...

Today I Love Monday Hustle

The last star of morning

Today I love Monday hustle. I love waking up rested and facing the day ahead with determination. I love when things converge on one day and become a tangled ball of errands with optimum times of performance that must be taken into account. I love when weeks start looking like that before they even start. It's like being at the top of the first drop of a roller-coaster...
