Today I love new revelations about myself that I discover on my own, like how I care more about what someone else thinks about a countertop we both have to live with and less about the countertop itself, because I can be happy with whatever. I love that the same goes for the cabinet colors because, while I have opinions on all of those things, I think that the best looking kitchen is one that my family is happy in no matter what it looks like to me. I love that I have been left to choose a possible oven and a possible cook top and that’s great because I do have opinions about those things and they have very little to do with looks. I love that we are talking so often and strongly and long about renovating our kitchen that it’s starting to look like it really might happen. I love that the things that we want in a kitchen are things we agree on and that the kitchen will be a place where we find more fun and love and joy in cooking together. I love cooking and I love that there is more love for cooking in my home than just mine. I love that we have found a lot of things that appeal to us and now we’re weeding out the ones that cannot coexist. I love that I get to go appliance shopping soon.
Today I love that tonight we’ll be heading out to the club to throw stones and that’ll be fun of course. I love that throwing stones is normally considered bad behavior but at our club we all aspire to being good at throwing stones. I love curling, and humor. I love that we’re more than half way through our curling season, and it goes beyond the end of winter and that means we have only one week and one more seven week draw and we’ll be on the downhill run to the non-winter time, and that means we’ll be heading to dragon boating season and I miss that when I’m curling as much as I miss curling when it’s dragon boating season.
Today I love that we acquired a paella pan and then made paella in less than a week and man that stuff is so good. I love that our paella pan is too big to keep in our kitchen and that might be one of the biggest reasons I’m looking forward to a new kitchen. I love quartz counters and gas cook tops and electric wall ovens and huge pot drawers, truly I do.
Today I love sipping coffee that came from the kitchen while I contemplate throwing stones, but not throwing quartz stones and not in my kitchen.
