Today I love getting new rain barrels, making plans to set them up and to use them and to remember to drain them in the fall before they freeze and split. I love that my first challenge will be to build a deck for the barrels to sit on, and my second one will be to figure out how to put the nut on the back of the drain spigot on the inside of the barrel at the bottom … since the top opening is way too small for me to crawl into. I love that there will be a way and I will find it … or my partner will manage to squeeze in there and we’ll get that rain barrel working!!! I love that I had to go pick up the rain barrels in the rain. I love that there is dirt on its way to our place though I’m pretty sure it is on a very slow moving truck and may take a week to get here, but I’d rather it arrived when it wasn’t raining anyway so I kind of love that too. I love that so many things are happening around here and that suits me just fine, ’cause happening things is what makes my life the adventure it is and adventures are what make my life such fun. I love this rainy day of powerful forward motion through time. Go Saturday!
Today I love that we are off to a house concert that promises to be oodles and buckets of fun. I love live music in small places, love hearing it and love playing it as well. I love how big a part music plays in my life. I love that I can connect much of what I do to music, and some of those connections are so direct and strong and intact that they positively sing with the joy of it. I love that I have done so many things musically in my life, writing, performing, recording, promoting, encouraging, volunteering, and just enjoying, and that it has always paid me back whenever I have had to give of myself to it.
Today I love that the Facebook reminded me today that I am an accredited auctioneer and a certified computer programmer and also that there was a time when some people liked me that currently seem to have a problem with me … but I will live, and live joyously and well despite that, and though I would be happier if they could manage to be happy for me, I am still happy that they know their own minds.
Today I love that I am drinking coffee on a rainy day while I ponder how to get the nuts onto the spigots of my rain barrels … this might take a few more cups.
