Today I love the winding road of life and how it keeps me on my toes, eyes open, ear to the ground figuratively, ready to be challenged and happy to meet those challenges. I love that one of the roads I’ve driven a few times recently is called “Twiss” road and that I thought it must have been a typo on the order form and was meant to be Swiss road, but after the first time I drove it I figured out that it was a typo, but it wasn’t the “T” at the beginning that should have been an “S”, but rather the “s” at the end that should have been a “t.” I love that winding, twisting stretch of road. I love that I find winding roads to be little adventures all unto themselves. I love that I have driven over 1600 miles in the last seven days and I’m still ready to roll at a moment’s notice. I love breakfast on the road, coffee in thermoses, radios that scan for signals, classical music, country music, pop music, greatest hits, and talk radio. I love that the weekend is coming and there will be less things to do in between driving.
Today I love supper plans that involve grocery shopping. I love cooking and enjoying what I cook. I love good food that is also good for me. I love making a mess of my kitchen and knowing it was worth the work to clean it up again. I love that sometimes I clean my kitchen up. I love food adventures and even though I’m not the most adventurous person in our kitchen I love being there for the big adventures as well as the little ones. I love that we have too much kitchen stuff, too many tools and too many appliances, and I love that we have no plans to get rid of any of them in the near future.
Today I love preliminary talk of planning gardens. I love that the temperature is supposed to rise by more than 18 degrees by the weekend (ten degrees if you’re Canadian). I love not knowing how things are going to turn out when I start something new, but hoping for the best and preparing for the worst with contingency plans and distractions means that I’ll be okay. I love that most times all it takes to pull me out of a slump is to see someone else that needs to be cheered up and I set my own sad aside and concentrate on them. I love that other people being happy is enough to make me happy.
Today I love drinking coffee and creaming about the wildly wickedly winding ways of Twiss (Twist?) road.
