Today I love Tuesday’s return to normalcy and the abnormal way that feels. I love when holidays and unusual situations shake things up and then I get to watch all the pieces fall back into place and see how many of them don’t quite fit without a few weeks of tapping and shaking my life to get them back in and leveled off again. I love that going on adventures is like shaking a sno-globe and and I really love that my life feels like a sno-globe a lot of the time. I love that we had a great time away, that it only rained there twice, once while we were driving to an outdoor museum and once when we were driving back from that same museum, but it stopped as soon as we got there and didn’t start until we left again, pretty clear sign that we were where we were supposed to be, eh? I love that I slept for about sixteen hours all told between yesterday afternoon and last night and though I’m feeling that burning sensation of not having slept quite enough and I’m still yawning, I feel good to go and ready to get things done. I love that I have things to do, and I love that I am already getting started on those things. I love that there isn’t even a slim chance that I’ll get all those things done, but I’m going to try.
Today I love that there will be dragon boating tonight. I love that I missed dragon boating last week and even though we were having a great time I felt strongly enough about it to have mentioned it on Tuesday when we were out, or maybe it was on Thursday. I love the calm of the water and the feeling of secrecy when we paddle up the river and through the city getting a view from a perspective that few others know exists. I love walking through cities that I’m visiting, choosing my directions for the perspective of view that they might afford, and I love doing that here at home too.
Today I love homemade porridge with raspberries, blueberries and strawberries. I love all the food that is coming, or is going to come out of our garden on these wonderful days of growth. I love that it is summer, love walking out of the house in my bare feet and not caring, love the plans to be at the cottage again soon, love that the lawn did not grow too much while we were gone and that I did not have to cut it immediately on returning home.
Today I love drinking coffee while I make plans on how to get everything caught up from a week of wandering and adventure and travel.
