Today I Love Day Two Of Snowmageddon 2020

snow on the front porch
It keeps coming …

Today I love day two of Snowmageddon 2020 and the way the landscape around our house has changed so much in the last 18 hours. I love that the current plan is to get to work on things here at the house tomorrow when the weather clears up. I love that I will need to use up the last of the gas in the snowblower to open up the driveway for the truck so that I can go get more gas for the snowblower, that’s so sort of meta. I love that we are taking the day off but that means that we have other things to do so I’m not stuck here doing nothing, just doing different things to keep me busy. I love that breakfast is on the list for the next thing that gets done here. I love that I have a book to read when things get slow and it is a classic. I love that I read so many different things, so many different genres and yet there are many things I don’t bother to read, I’m not fussy, but there are things I know I won’t enjoy and life is too short. I love that I have slogged my way through some pretty bad books in my life. I love that when I say bad books I am still impressed with the accomplishment of someone who has written a book, even if it makes me angry to have to read it, ha ha.

Today I love that curling might still be on tonight, though the day time leagues were cancelled. I love that we can walk to the club if we have to. I love how we all just do what needs doing and relax when doing things would be a mistake. I love that there are so many places closing and not making people have to decide if they should try to get through this weather. I love that we all know here in our snowy world that the snow on the ground isn’t holding any of us back, but the stuff in the air means that we would all be driving huge, dangerous machines blindly without the ability to see each other or the roads we were supposed to be following, so most of us have the sense to stay put and those of us that need to be someplace can count on there being less traffic out there. I love that here in town the roads and visibility isn’t so bad and I may be able to get gas for the blower in a little while, yay.

Today I love that I used to be one of the people that could be called on to go help others out on days like today. I love that I used to drive through storms with my windows down and me dressed for the outdoors. I love that I can still move snow ’cause my health is such that I can’t work at it as a job, so I’m thankful for small things.

Today I love drinking coffee and writing while the snow piles up around the house and wraps us up in orders to stay put as much as possible.

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.
