Today I love sleeping soundly like I did last night after we spent yesterday doing all the things. I love that more seeds were planted, that two rain barrels were installed and the other one is almost in place, that I cut the lawn, and built the decking for those two rain barrels, and got a good start on the gate for the top of the spiral stairs at the cottage. I love that I got some writing done, and that I found almost all my tools even though I haven’t been using many of the ones I needed for a while. I love that I found my hacksaw after I used my cheater hacksaw because that’s the way my life works sometimes. I love that I will find those damned Forstner drill bits and when I do I will finish that gate I started. I love tools that do the perfect job in certain circumstances. I love that I own and use some of those. I love when things look exactly like what you intended them to look like when you started creating them. I love that there are still things to be done around this place, ’cause that means I’m still needed here.
Today I love that the dragon boat is supposed to be heading out this evening for a run and I’ll be there for that if the weather holds. I love that the weather is supposed to hold and I almost always am right about the weather. I love that today is one of those days with sunshine and clouds at the same time and that it is supposed to be warming up soon and warm days are wonderful. I love that though I love all kinds of weather, I’ve realized that the days when I can walk out of the house, barefoot and with no jacket or sweater on make me feel like my home has expanded to include the outdoors and that somehow makes me feel like I belong where I am.
Today I love curry for supper last night and again for lunch today. I love that I feel pretty battered from all the things I did yesterday, it’s a good feeling to know how hard you’ve worked. I love that we are making plans for the next big adventure and though it’s smaller than some it is still big enough to fall into the “big adventure” category for me.
Today I love drinking coffee in my big old recliner while I wrack my brain to try to remember where those darned drill bits are. Sooner or later they’ll show up, they can’t elude me forever.
