Today I love this foggy head weather that makes me present in the moment even though the present moment isn’t very pleasant. I love how good it feels to sit down and relax when my body is aching with some kind of bug. I love that I am dreaming of going back to bed but I need to get some things done first. I love that I can work from bed but since I can’t “housework” from bed I’ve decided to get my deadlines behind me and then my housework done and then reassess the whole bed in the middle of the day thing. I love that my eyes are now running freely because that dry scratchy stuff from yesterday was not pleasant. I love that I have too much to do to let myself be sick for too long so I’m going to let it run its course for a day or maybe a day and a half and then it better be packing its things and moving on ’cause I have stuff to do this weekend that I do not intend to miss and that is all! I love how easy it is to just lie back and be ill, once all the important things are taken care of. I love how being ill gives me a perspective on the importance of things.
Today I love lemon and honey and ginger in hot water. I love the fireplace with its gentle flames flickering near my feet. I love that it snowed last night but not enough that I needed to go clean out the driveway. I love that the weekend is supposed to be warmer. I love it is eight days until the beginning of Winter and fourteen weeks until the beginning of Spring. I love that Winter is the surest sign of Spring. I love that the seasons keep changing, right in front of my eyes, for me to watch, that means I’m still going, still caring, still here. I love life in the cradle of natures changes.
Today I love the smell of the Christmas tree, and even though I am unable to smell it currently I know that when I shake this current bug I’ll be enjoying that aroma once again. I love things that remind me of stuff I’ve done in my life, like stained glass work that I did years ago. I love people who love old things. I love that I’m old and still getting older.
Today I love fresh coffee ready to be drunk as soon as I get this photo taken!
