Today I love that it is sweater weather, cool and fresh, that makes me feel thankful for the comfort of my poncho that was made by hand for me with love and laughter. I love its quirky style, love how it hangs around like it doesn’t want to let me go, love how it makes me feel worthy and worthwhile, and all the time still keeps me warm. I love that the weather and the sweater are like a team, one making the air fresh and clean tasting and the other allowing me to sit comfortably on the porch out front and drink in the sweetness of the day in comfort. I love this grey and heavy day that scatters spatterings of rain about when it takes the notion, rinsing down the dust of hot dry days with abandon, like a child playing with an open ended garden hose that is all but turned off. I love that today is the second last full day of Summer according to the astronomic calculations. I love that I am contemplating petitioning the government of the world to just set the 21st as the official first day of each season and leave the solstices and equinoxes out of the seasons so that it would be easier for radio stations and newspapers to calculate stuff. 😉
Today I love that it is Thursday and I am in my Thursday office and I have a few loose ends to clear away and then it’s housework and organizing and maybe a bit of grocery shopping. I love that I managed to dump my novel into a PDF and put it on my Kindle and am reading it over without being able to edit it just to see how it reads and where to go with the last quarter of it. I love that I still love the characters in it, love that the heroes are honorable and the villain is not and the extras are all quite normal entities … mostly.
Today I love real wool. I love how things that seem to be scary or overwhelming offer so much relief when they are faced down and taken care of. I love that I can laugh about having bruised one thumb on Monday and the other one on Tuesday and now I have a matching set. I love getting things done, done, DONE! I love that lists do not intimidate me, ’cause I can lose those suckers as easily as falling off a slippery log.
Today I love drinking good hot coffee in my sweater in the front porch office chair.
