Today I love this morning’s light show that was our view with breakfast. I love how amazing it is to watch the dawn on some mornings, how it looks so beautiful and I think to myself that nothing in the natural world has ever looked that amazing before or ever will and then it slowly changes to something as beautiful or more so and I think to myself, “Time to shut up and just watch.” I love that our morning view is of the eastern sky. I love holding the morning moments and savoring them, the light, the feeling of a new day, the excitement and anticipation of what will come of another spin ’round on this old earth. I love the way it looks like the sun goes around us when we actually are just turning, and the way it looks like it moves up and down from north to south and back over the year when we are just taking a year to go around it and doing it with a tilt. I love that it takes the moon twenty-eight days to go around the earth just once and yet because we are spinning it looks like it goes around every day. I love the light of my days and of my nights, and the brilliant shows that are put on on those two stages.
Today I love that tonight is curling night and that it is a kind of in-house card because tonight the two skips from my household are playing against each other and that is great, because one of us will have to win, and I should be able to manage a solid second place. I love that on Friday nights after curling we often talk about what happened at the rink for a while after we get home and tonight it will be about shared experiences, ’cause we’ll be talking about the same game. I love that tonight is a battle of experience and intelligence, though I am the underdog in both those categories. I love that I have a good team, I think, though I’ve never played with them yet ’cause last week was our first game of this draw and six of the eight players on our two teams missed it. I love that this looks like a lot of fun and I’m really looking forward to it, more than usual.
Today I love that we have cold cereal in the house for those times when I forget to make porridge. I love that I have baked lots of goodies this week and I still feel like I’m just warming up. I love that every time I struggle with the limited space and limiting layout of this kitchen I think to myself, “Next year will be different.” I love that we are contemplating getting a new TV at the beginning of the week ’cause that means I have learned my lesson. I love my new sunglasses.
Today I love drinking coffee while I sip my coffee and think about coffee and how great it is to drink it … in the shifting beauty of the morning light. I think I’ll have another coffee.
