Today I Love Doing Dishes

Musical spontaneity is lovely

Today I love doing dishes, though not with any passion, I just love when the dishes are done and things are where they are supposed to be and doing them gets me there. I love that as each day passes we figure out more places for our kitchen things to reside and soon the whole kitchen will be organized and all put away, maybe in a couple more months. I love that we have started cooking good things here in the new kitchen and that we have managed to work around the shortfalls of interrupted construction. I love that on the weekend we roasted a turkey and it was very good. I love that yesterday I made turkey pie yesterday with homemade pastry. I love that I had to cook the filling on the side burner of the barbecue and as I was cooking it started snowing and I think that added to the flavor quite a bit. I love that that old pie turned out to be pretty darned good and I could likely have eaten two thirds of it myself but I showed restraint and as a result we have half a pie left for lunch or dinner today. I love my kitchen and the way it is coming together and if you all are tired of hearing about that I am truly sorry, but it is true, and new with every day as changes and advances get made there.

Today I love that I have a bunch of things to cross off my list and I’ve already crossed several of them off, pots and pans are all cleaned up, and I’ve called the bank to figure out how to take care of more of my interactions with them without going in to see them. I love that I am seriously thinking about doing a dry run on making a knife block that will fit in my drawer and hold all the knives and even the steak knives and the cleaver, but that will likely be for another day. I love that I am sitting here on the couch writing and the sun is beaming in through the window behind me and warming my head and shoulders.

Today I love all the ways in which we have managed to get food delivered or scheduled for pick up and how well it all seems to be working. Ilove that we still get out to walk, and I really love that we can walk in our home because it has been opened up enough that there is a circular track that runs around the stair well with little impedance now that one particularly narrow doorway has been opened up.

Today I love drinking coffee on my couch and writing while music spontaneously issues from the piano and cheers the whole household greatly.

Today I Love Doing Dishes

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.
