Today I love people laughing so hard they snort and I really love people who do that for the first time in their life and then find the fact that they snorted so hilarious that they laugh even harder. I love it when I’m the one that made them laugh like that. I love when people laugh with such abandon that they are unable to intervene in the cause of their laughter. I love when someone is laughing so hard at something in their own head that they cannot even describe what is making them laugh and the real joy is that when they can explain it it usually isn’t that funny to anyone else but their laughter was enough to make everyone else laugh and in addition, the fact that they laughed so hard means that the right thing came to the attention of the right person first, else it would have been wasted. I love laughter so much, and I love it when I find myself to be laughing when I’m all alone, though I regret not being able to share the thing that made me laugh. I love that I can make people laugh and keep myself from laughing, it feels like I’m being dedicated and professional, and I find that to be kind of funny itself.
Today I love that we’ve been on the road again and it was a lovely, rainy drive this morning. I love that we got new foot parkas which are slippers that are like slipper treads with sleeping bag uppers and they are wonderful. I love that the countryside is such a mix of colors, the new greens of winter wheat sprouting in the fields, the old greens of cedars and spruces, and the wild reds and oranges and golds of the leaves as the drift off into a brown sleep. I love that the fields will soon have pools of frozen water and then the snow will dust the corners in preparation of the coming winter. I love the rows of old corn and wheat still standing, abandoned and dry, soft and feathery as it races past my window on the misty road that takes us back home.
Today I love breakfast out and restaurants that specialize in breakfast and serving it all day long. I love not making a mess in my kitchen and eating out is one way to do that. I love that there is a mess at home in my kitchen and the plan is to go home and clean it up, but we didn’t make it a bigger mess by eating our breakfast on the road.
Today I love drinking coffee on the road while the dusty old abandoned wheat and corn fields fly by.
