Today I Love These Last Few Summer Hours

54 degrees, and sunny
Cool and bright

Today I love these last few Summer hours and their lovely program called “Homage To Autumn” complete with chilling temperatures and sparkling sunshine.I love that tomorrow is the first full day of Autumn. I love that we registered for curling last night. I love that the market was so lively this morning with lots of plaid everywhere and smiling faces and laughter and cheer. I love the sounds of this city, rumbling through its day downtown, shushing winds blowing through the tree tops, heavy equipment in the distance, children laughing. I love old friends talking in past tenses, new friends talking in present tenses, young people thinking in future tenses and all of it read easily in sparkling eyes and smiles. I love how much brighter life seems when the air is colder. I love that I breath easier in cooler air. I love that it makes me laugh to see the look on peoples faces when I drive around in the snowy cold winter with my windows down. I love how keeping the truck cab as cold inside as it is outside means that the windows don’t frost up. I love that it is still summer and I’m here talking about winter in glowing terms.

Today I love that I will still likely go swimming in the bay before the season is over. I love that the bay in September is as warm or warmer than the bay in July. I love that I have gotten possession of my grandfathers old parlor wood burning stove, a tiny little thing that I hope to install in the bunkie at the cottage. I love that all its parts are there except for the lid lifter, and with any luck I can find a little one somewhere that will fit it. I love that I know a young man who might be able to make me one if I cannot find one.

Today I love breakfast sandwiches at the market. I love that I am getting through this course of antibiotics, though I still have several weeks to go yet. I love that I am eating yogurt as a bedtime snack to help keep my stomach from being too upset and over worked. I love little flowers with stunning colors that happen to decide to bloom in the end of summer. I love people who are okay with me being really lousy at remembering names.

Today I love drinking coffee on the front porch in the cool of Summer’s last few hours.

Today I Love These Last Few Summer Hours

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.
