Today I Love Workday Breakfast

The well lit nook ... and a bit of the mess

Today I love workday breakfast on Tuesday morning with all the good stuff like bacon and eggs and bacon fried buttered toast and ... well, that was all really, but man it was good. I love that we sat down and ate breakfast without thinking to turn on the light in the nook and neither one of us noticed that we'd...

Today I Love Discussing Plans

Cedar contemplations

Today I love discussing plans, examining possibilities, exploring potentials, and contemplating decisions. I love that I have a plan for investing and that it is not set in stone but it's pretty firm at this point. I love that I am able to hold onto that plan with one hand, so to speak, while I turn over other opportunities with the other hand and consider their challenges and advantages....

Today I Love All The Weather

on the road with my coffee

Today I love all the weather and driving through it on a road trip. I love that I saw brilliant sun and heavy clouds, clear skies and and then snow flurries, mild temperatures and then freezing ones. I love that I saw both sides of my beloved peninsula today, the beautifully brooding Georgian Bay and the silvery sulking Lake Huron. I love that Huron's shores were...

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...
