Today I Love All The Things I Do

Back to the happy, peaceful Tuesday office

Today I love all the things I do, though admittedly many of them are writing, there are enough others that are varied and different to keep my life interesting. I love that I will drive my truck anywhere and haul anything for the right price. I love that I can build simple things and that my skills to do that will be challenged again this year as a volunteer for Summerfolk. I love that I’m using building Summerfolk as a warmup to building a pergola that will double as a stage at the cottage so that when friends gather to hear some musician that happens to be staying with us it might seem like it’s a little professional. I love that I aspire to being a non-profit entity someday or at least a non-loss one. I love that music costs a lot less than a lack of music would cost. I love that I’m home from the cottage and have about four days worth of things to do in about four days. I love that some of them are time sensitive and that’s going to keep me working away. I love that when I tried to list the time sensitive ones in my head just now I realized that they all are really.

Today I love My Tuesday office welcoming me back once again. I love that it feels like home. I love that I am going to have to cut the grass at two different places, both the house and the cottage, in the next five days. I love that the 30 plus year old lawnmower here at the house is still rumbling along. I love the smell of fresh cut grass and look forward to that over the next couple of days, even though I am not really fond of burning fossil fuels and depleting the atmosphere’s oxygen levels in order to reduce the lawns ability to replenish those oxygen levels.

Today I love that I will hopefully get the dragon boat decal on the other side of the truck cap today. I love that there is enough porridge in the refrigerator to get us through breakfast for the next couple of days. I love that we’re contemplating making more substantial yet simpler breakfasts and freezing them. I love that so many of our plans are to make life simpler so that we can then add more things in to our lives. I love that I love being busy.

Today I love sitting in the Tuesday office drinking Tuesday coffee and doing all the Tuesday things.

Today I Love All The Things I Do

Kelly Babcock

I was born in the city of Toronto in 1959, but moved when I was in my fourth year of life. I was raised and educated in a rural setting, growing up in a manner I like to refer to as free range. I live in an area where my family history stretches back 6 or more generations. I was diagnosed with ADHD at the age of 50 and have been both struggling with the new reality and using my discoveries to make my life better. I write two blogs here at Psych Central, one about having ADHD and one that is a daily positive affirmation that acts as an example of finding the good in as much of my life as I possibly can.
