Today I love losing my mind, forgetting important things, and then doing what i need to do to fix the problems that causes. I love losing my mind because it reminds me to practice humility. I love that I forgot my computer when I was supposed top be on my way to the Wednesday office and that makes me laugh a little bit. I love that my other things that needed doing today were such that I was able to rearrange my schedule and end up swinging by the house to pick up my computer and now here I am with many of my errands done and I am in my Wednesday office with my computer and working away as if this was the way the day was supposed to go, yay me! I love that there is a brand new oven in the back of my pickup truck and it is on its way home with me and it will eventually be installed in the new kitchen in a month or two. I love that I keep looking at my cook top that is stored in the garage, that’s how excited I am. I love that I will likely be doing the same thing with the oven once it’s unloaded and put in home storage. I love that I am excited about this whole project and can’t wait for changes to start being made so I can take lots of crazy pictures and share them everywhere, even here.
Today I love how much walking I’ve been doing lately and I’m even considering raising the number of my target steps now that I’m feeling better. I love how good it feels to walk for blocks and not feel like my survival is questionable. I love my neighborhood and the other places that I walk. I love that walking takes me out into the world and gives me little hints of how the changing of the seasons is coming along. I love that my life is all about living as much and as well as possible.
Today I love custard tarts and apple pies and carrot cake and I am looking forward to making all of those things in a new space soon. I love cooking for the fun of it. I love that yesterday I made eight meals for us for the rest of the week and they turned out to be very good and tasty. I love my old cast iron enameled pot that looks so decrepit and abused and has a big crack in the lid. I love that it came from my mother, my inheritance, and I will never part with it until I’m done living.
Today I love drinking coffee, finally, in the Wednesday office, with a brand new oven in the back of my truck.
