Today I Love The Mail

Things to watch for …

Today I love the mail and all the good things that come in it. I love that I also get bills in the mail, but only because those are things that need to be paid whether they get here that way or not and when those bills come I am reminded that we have electricity and running water and our street gets plowed every now and then in the winter. I love that I still get a paycheck in the mail, though in Canada we call it a paycheque. I love that when I was a teenager and couldn’t afford a car to get to town I used to mail my films away and then in a week or so I would receive my photographs and negatives back in the mail. I love that most recently I got my smart watch in the mail and it was the one I wanted that is somewhat older technology, but is still pretty amazing. I love that it does things I didn’t expect, like telling me how well I slept in detail and checking on my heart rate when I’m not looking and still it tells time. I love that I can get a text or a message and reply briefly to it without taking my phone out, why do people not care about a person looking at their watch at dinner, but they get upset about the phone? I love that I am still looking for the perfect watch face for it but I’ve found some pretty cool ones already.

Today I love that it is Saturday and that I have some work to catch up on but that’s okay, ’cause I’m looking forward to being caught up. I love that I have a road run to do today that involves hauling the dragon boat to its home and I love towing things. I love that we bumped into friends and they seem interested in coming curling with us and that will be fun if they do. I love that I am making plans for my Christmas Radio Show already.

Today I love that we discovered that the parsnips are actually growing out in the garden after all, I thought they never sprouted, and that they will soon be frosted to bring out that sweetness, but we may just leave them in the ground over the winter to really make then sweet. I love that we will be pulling the carrots and beets up soon as well. I love that it’s a sunny and bright day out there and that’s the perfect way to start a weekend. I love that we dined at our favorite restaurant last night, Oregano Bistro, and it was great as usual.

Today I love sipping coffee in my great room office while I get caught up on work.

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 on the traditional lands of the Chippewas of Nawash in an area where my family history stretches back 6 or 7 generations and my First Nations friend's families go back hundreds of 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 am a freelance writer and I write two blogs here at Psych Central, one about living with 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.
