Today I Love Getting Ready To Curl

damp laundry on the line
yesterday’s laundry still waiting for me

Today I love getting ready to curl tonight for our first game. I love that it is a quick draw of some of us experienced players and all the new curlers we spent the last three “learn to curl” nights training. I love that this is where it gets fun. I love that I openly admit to trolling my dragon boaters to get people to sign up for curling and then trolling the curlers to get them to join dragon boating. I love how many things I do that are seasonal and how they all seem to fit together so nicely as the seasons change. I love that last night we had our dragon boating AGM and tonight we’re off to the rink and playing a game, how perfect is that? I love that that was a rhetorical question and it reminded me that good writing shouldn’t have rhetorical questions, should it? I love that I make myself laugh a lot with the things I say and someone has pointed that out to me and told me not to stop. I love that laughter is such a good thing, and probably the single most significant aspect of humanity in comparison to all other things that are not human. I love that I laugh every day of my life, and that I live for that laughter and the joy that allows it to occur.

Today I love that tomorrow I will be in my Wednesday office just because we’re mixing it up this week and that’s just fine by me. I love that tomorrow is Friday and that is the end of the week. I love how Friday is also the beginning of the weekend, because Friday night is nothing but weekend, it’s all about weekendishness and that is perfect. I love Fridays for their ability to get things done in the daytime and celebrate that in the evening. I love that Fridays are like the mullet of days, business up front and party in the back.

Today I love that there are prunes in the oatmeal this week, not because I’m old, or at least not just because I’m old, but because they have an earthy and pleasant taste that they add to the oatmeal and that’s a good thing. I love memories of hand held toy windmills and particularly remembering holding one out of the car window and watching it spin like sixty all the way down the street.

Today I love drinking my coffee and waiting for yesterday’s forgotten laundry to dry on the line today.

Today I Love Getting Ready To Curl

Kelly Babcock

I was born in the city of Toronto in 1959, but moved when I was in my fourth year of life. I was raised and educated in a rural setting, growing up in a manner I like to refer to as free range. I live in an area where my family history stretches back 6 or more generations. I was diagnosed with ADHD at the age of 50 and have been both struggling with the new reality and using my discoveries to make my life better. I write two blogs here at Psych Central, one about having ADHD and one that is a daily positive affirmation that acts as an example of finding the good in as much of my life as I possibly can.
