Today I love that Friday feeling where the world just seems to know and act like the work week is drawing to an end and the weekend is on its way. I love how it just feels like there’s an open mic coming up and maybe two of them, ’cause we’re doing one for the city in the big ol’ tent down by the Marine & Rail Museum on Saturday at four just to show that our “Friday at four at the Bleeding Carrot” isn’t our only afternoon open mic trick in this town. I love that there is so much going on here. I love that main street has been closed off to vehicular traffic all week and we wandered down the middle of the street last night after catching the end of Orchestra North’s open mic. Wow, everyone’s doing those open mic things now, have we started a trend? I hope so. I love that my little city has decided to celebrate its 160th birthday and our country’s 150th birthday in such a big way. I love that there are things going on from one end of the city to the other.
Today I love that we have a plan for parking downtown and launching our kayaks without having to battle the madding crowds. I love that I have a kayak for the first time in my life just when there is a flotilla about to happen, though I would have loved to have done this with my canoe, but it is still in need of repair and I haven’t been able to fit that into the schedule. I love that I intend to fix that canoe still. I love that every time I look at real estate I am attracted to places that have room for a canoe to hang from the ceiling.
Today I love fresh cherries . I love overly large rubber ducks. I love mistakes on promotional material that just have to be laughed at. I love that my lawn is cut. I love that I have so much to do today. I love being happy. I love finding out that people who I don’t interact with as much as I once did are happy. I love that love may only give you the opportunity to love someone else, because sometimes that’s all you need to be happy.
Today I love sipping coffee and pondering the ramifications of a giant rubber duck in my harbor when I want to go paddling.
