Today I love this deep blue sky, “a sky so blue that it hurts your eyes just to look at it.” as Burt Lancaster said in Field Of Dreams. I love that I am out on the front porch looking at the Western sky in the shade of the house so that the sun doesn’t make it impossible for me to see my screen and still the view of the sky from here is the richest blue the sky could be for this time of day and this direction of viewing. I love that I got the recycling out to the end of the drive, it wasn’t full yet but it would have been by the next pick up date so today was its day to start a new adventure. I love how the dandelions manage to shoot up their heads ten to twelve inches tall and produce seed globes all over the lawn just three days or so after I cut the grass. I love that the changes in weather are bringing birds to this area that we don’t always see, like the bay breasted warbler that normally hangs out a little further north of here in the summer. I love that nature often finds a way. I love that there are plants and seeds in the back yard that should be sources of fresh food for us before to long, and now that I think on it have already been so as we have been feeding on chives and rhubarb already this spring. I love that one of my jobs today is to order some soil for a few of the garden beds.
Today I love that yesterday was dragon boat day again and we had a good paddle and a good time afterwards. I love this town and all the fun things there are to do, love that in the last three days I’ve been dragon boating, then to the theater, then dragon boating again, and today it’s open mic at the Bleeding Carrot restaurant and juice bar and I’m the host this week. I love that I’m also working on my radio show for next week and it’s kind of special because it falls on Fathers’ Day.
Today I love good food with lots of variety. I love that last night some people found out I used to be an auctioneer and when they heard me do the auction chant they realized that, as fast as I normally talk, I’ve still been slowing it down for their benefit so that they can keep up with the conversation. I love that I will know when I am too tired to go on because I’ll be too tired to talk. Ha!
Today I love drinking coffee on the front porch under a blue, blue sky while I think up things to tell everyone the next time I see them.
