Today I Love This Dainty Snow

Dainty spring snow ...

Today I love this dainty snow of spring and the way it did not turn to freezing rain as its potential to do so was predicted. I love that I have lots to do today including helping my doctor try to figure out what is up with these crazy lungs of mine. I love that one of these winters we are going to get to the...

Today I Love Pondering The Past

Adventures in freezer land ...

Today I love pondering the past and stopping along that trail of memories at the places that give me pleasure. If you know how much I love that sort of thing, then you are probably one of my pleasing memories. I love contemplating the future and planning what I might do in it. I love, just as much, listing options and considering which ones might be the...

Today I Love Loud Mornings

Forsythia foretold ...

Today I love loud mornings when the air is full of sounds and songs and sweet cold oxygen. I love the rowdy robin's raucous ruckus and the clever cardinal's clear clarion calls. I love the mourning dove's low, quiet sounds of distant hope. I love the beeping of the microwave when first breakfast is ready, the gurgling of the coffee maker as it mixes up the fuel for my...

Today I Love Sleeping And Dreaming

Silver Tuesday

Today I love sleeping and dreaming, that I dreamt last night for the first time in a long time, and that I feel less achy than I have in weeks. I love the easy light outside the window and the silver grey of the sky, the fact that it is above freezing out and was all night I think. I love that there are green things coming up in the...

Today I Love Damp Dark Spring Days

A damp spring Monday morn ...

Today I love damp dark spring days and the way they can sometimes match your mood so you don't feel so lonely. I love that it is fifty degrees (ten degrees Celsius) out already and it's just past eight in the morning. I love that the robins have been calling to each other since shortly after five. I love that I heard killdeers yesterday afternoon as...

Today I Love Adventures In Food

Adventures in grocery shopping ...

Today I love adventures in food, like last night's hot pot dinner and today's T&T shopping expedition. I love trying new things, even if I don't like the things I try, which doesn't happen very often. I love trying things a second time when people around me insist that they are delicious after finding out what they love about the thing I'm giving a second chance...

Today I Love Big Hero Six

... at the championships.

Today I love Big Hero Six, and a lot of other movies I'd just been ignoring or dismissing because I'd sort of sworn off movies and TV. I love that I've been watching old movies and new ones and taking turns suggesting movies and watching ones that are being screened in my home. I love that I am just doing what comes along again and that I am...

Today I Love More Weekend Adventures

Making coffee to goooooo ....

Today I love more weekend adventures. I love that the weekend starts in a few hours and is tightly choreographed to include a multitude of things from sporting events to a birthday party and even a campfire jam though there will be no actual campfire. I love all the jokes about banjos and bagpipes even though I love banjos and bagpipes. I love that I...

Today I Love Having A Day At Home

... in the morning sun

Today I love having a day at home to regroup, recharge, and clean up the mess I left behind in the kitchen when I left for the day yesterday. I love that yesterday began at 5:15AM with breakfast and a trip to the gym and then second breakfast and a trip out of town. I love that the trip out of town didn't end until eleven last...

Today I Love Late March

At a friendly café

Today I love late March and early spring. I love that at home there was no snow but ten miles east there was snow everywhere, that's what springtime is, a transition time, a period of uncertainty with the certainty belonging to those who know that summertime is on its way. I love omelette sandwiches for breakfast on the road. I love getting up early and going to the rec...
