Today I Love Zestfully Enthusiastic Saturday Mornings

I see you ...

Today I love zestfully enthusiastic Saturday mornings. I love coffee in bed while the day's plans are made and the telling of the day's jokes are well begun. I love laughter in the hallway, sunlight in the window frame, music on the radio, books piled high on the headboard, clean laundry in the basket ready to be put away and weekends that include all those things. I...

Today I Love Ellipsis Raindrops

Rain punctuates well

Today I love ellipsis raindrops as they stutter across my window in paused patterns that seem to say, "Wait for it. This is going to be good." I love the way this morning is punctuated perfectly in order to tell us that even the rain can't last forever, but it and every other type of weather will return. I love waking up in the morning and recognizing...

Today I Love The Darkling Skies

Brooding moody changing weather ...

Today I love the darkling skies that share their brooding mood over this weather change. I love moody weather that makes me think of warm sweaters and fireplaces, wool blankets and flannel sheets, hot chocolate with marshmallows. I love that autumn is still here, that there are weeks of decent weather left yet and that I will enjoy it all, rather than waste my time worrying about...

Today I Love Adventures In Back-Roading

Looking up at the Wednesday office

Today I love adventures in back-roading when there's construction on the main road. I love that it's still too early in the autumn for the leaves to really catch fire, but I know that they will soon and then back roads will be a really amazing experience again. I love finding new ways to get to old familiar places like my Wednesday office. I love when a...

Today I Love Recovering From Weekends

Weekday morning light

Today I love recovering from weekends, though in truth, I could live my life like it was one long weekend and never run down. I love that recovering from weekends for me means taking the time to remember and enjoy the memories of the time spent in recreation and rejuvenation. I love that we crammed so many things into our Monday off yesterday, swimming, yard care, barbecue assembly,...

Today I Love The Morning Sky

Sunny start

Today I love the morning sky peppered with stars in this clear predawn moment. I love getting up early, once I'm up, because once I'm up and going I know the world will be as much of an adventure as it always is and who wouldn't want to get that started as soon as possible, even though I know I'll be dragging myself along by the end of the day....

Today I Love This Perfect Day

My beloved bay ...

Today I love this perfect day that's just right to be spending by the water. I love that the weather is warm and the water is the perfect temperature for me. I love that we paddled our kayaks across the bay and back and it took only a little over an hour. I love that we went swimming after that, that the sun warmed and dried us when...

Today I Love The Butter Cream Clouds

Awesome clouds

Today I love the butter cream clouds in the morning's Azure sky. I love the soft sweet lull of this end of Summer's days and hours and minutes. I love that the count down is on and at 4:02 this afternoon, my new favorite season will start. I love the rusty gate hinge sounds that the blue jays make this time of year, the cheery calls of the chickadees,...

Today I Love The World Still Turning

Waves are like life ...

Today I love the world still turning even though there are times when it seems like it should stop. I love that after the darkest night, there is a sunrise. I love that I have been bereft and lost and destitute and felt like I would die from the personal insult of the sun rising as if nothing had happened, only to discover that the sun did rise...
