Today I Love Getting Things Moving

Moody Monday morning dawn

Today I love getting things moving and solving riddles that need answers in order to allow us to do all the things we want to do with our home and our lives. I love that the garage is a more organized space this afternoon than it was this morning. I love that we took some yard waste to the compost site. I love that we also dropped off a bunch of metal and cardboard recycling at the transfer station. I love that I finally got the back of my truck unloaded and the car’s summer tires are on their rack and the table saw and the cut-off saw are where I will be needing them for my next project. I love that we got the porch swing put away and the patio chairs out of the weather and the two water barrels that had given up on holding water have been chopped up into pieces and are ready to go out with the trash. I love that I will be working on a little project to make wooden crates that fit in cube shelves. I love that I’m shifting back toward doing things like that because I’ve not been doing much in the way of shop projects since I sold my house and lost my work shop, and it’s been longer than that now that I think of it. I love when I get an idea to make something and it turns out really well and I’m hoping these boxes also work really well.

Today I love Mondays and their way of causing dread only to turn out to be okay and a day of accomplishments I wasn’t really expecting to have. I love that this day dawned with some moody character as the sun crept up into a hazy morning sky. I love that tonight I’ll go throw a few more rocks for practice and fun and that will keep me out of trouble. I love that I am still not ready to give up on locating my missing Forstner drill bits and I hope that someday I will find them and I really hope it isn’t after I’ve replaced the darned things.

Today I love how much food has been prepared for this week already, and that there is more food ready to be prepared should we run low on ready to eat meals. I love how we roll here, sometimes making things on the spur of the moment because one of us has a hankering for it and sometimes having meals planned out and prepared for days. I love that contingencies are always thought out in advance should they need to be put in place. I love that we have so many favorite foods that we are always thinking up things to eat and share with each other from our own childhood and family menus.

Today I love drinking coffee and relaxing while I take care of some online work after doing a lot of yard and garage clearing things and testing out the holiday lighting and declaring it to be about eighty percent functional, but adequate for one more season.

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.
