Today I love lazy country mornings where you wake up energized and ready to go and things feel light and easy because the things that need doing are done easily and with humor and joy. I love the cheery dappled sunlight playing on the walls and floors and furniture as the day filters in to the cottage through the cedars that line Nikki’s Creek that flows between the neighbors’ place and ours. I love the way that little creek laughs and tumbles its way from the roadside down to the bay, echoing my own approach to big adventures. I love how beautiful the bay is here and how we share it between two counties and each side has a view worth being jealous of. I love that we get to come here some weekends and I love that it is so enjoyable even when the weather is cold. I love that we’re almost in the middle of spring so it won’t be long before we can count on days without snow and temperatures that don’t go below freezing at night. I love Spring’s vast spectrum of available weather, that it is truly the full catalogue of our weather. I love this beautiful, wonderfully vibrant painted world and all her moods and colors and textures and times.
Today I love that tonight we have choir practice and we’re almost ready for our big show. I love our choir full of eclectic cultures and caring but bold attitudes and the way that we really do rock the sounds that we make. I love that we are as broad a spectrum of abilities as we are ages and genders and attitudes and hair color and cultures and religions and faiths. I love that the end of the choir season always denotes the beginning of the warmer half of the year and that choir helps us get through the colder half.
Today I love bacon and eggs and toast and honey for breakfast. I love writing in the weekend office, looking out the glass wall at the water. I love that the dragon boat is scheduled to go back into the water in two weeks and two days. I love that we’re going to take a course in coaching and then we’ll be accredited to be on either end of the boat. I love that I am feeling the urge to work on finishing the row boat I started building fifteen years ago. I love that it was supposed to be a weekend project but I clearly needed to think about it for a few years in the middle of the build.
Today I love drinking my coffee while looking out over water that is bluer than the sky, the bluest water in the world.
