Today I Love Building Material In The Dining Room

All the building materials

Today I love building material in the dining room stacked up nice and neat and ready to become an insulated subfloor. I love that I have to keep reminding myself to stop calling it the dining room now that the dining room has been moved to where the breakfast nook used to be. I love that the breakfast nook has been done away with altogether and we now breakfast at the kitchen island. I love that the kitchen is where the family room used to be. I love that the family room has been done away with altogether as well. I love that where the kitchen was and where the dining room was will soon be part of the “L” shaped living room having been joined together. I love that the old living room will be the “L” part of that when all is done. I love that we have a lot of work to do on all of this but since no one can come over to see it we’re not in a big hurry. I love that we have been spending as much time making our home comfortable even though it is torn somewhat apart and we have been enjoying its chameleon changes with each small step that it takes toward completion. I love that my isolation partner just shakes her head when I go off and do some unnecessary thing that creates some new job for me to do, like mudding the wall where I took the decal off and some of the finish came off with it. I love when she shakes her head at me but can’t help smiling at the same time, what is that feeling?

Today I love that the weather is going to warm up just in time for me to make a new batch of porridge on the barbecue burner. I love cooking porridge and other things outside. I love that we went for our walk fist thing this morning and took an alternate route and enjoyed ourselves and feel energized and healthy from it. I love that we are going to be ordering groceries again today and will be happy to get whatever we can in the way of food. I love that so far there are good and easy ways to make life work in the new world we all now live in.

Today I love contemplating making raisin bread. I love how well things are working out when it comes to putting our kitchen things away in their new places. I love my cookbook library area, I have been waiting for some time to be able to unpack my cookbooks, hello old friends. I love that I am champing at the bit to get my cook top installed so I can recreate some of my memories. I love that the kitchen is now functional for two people to move around in, I can’t wait for social times to resume.

Today I love drinking coffee while I write in the old dining room and glance occasionally over at the materials I will be installing soon.

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 on the traditional lands of the Chippewas of Nawash in an area where my family history stretches back 6 or 7 generations and my First Nations friend's families go back hundreds of 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 am a freelance writer and I write two blogs here at Psych Central, one about living with 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.
