Today I love opportunities for everyone, for friends and family and even for myself. I love when things all suddenly seem like part of a cunning plan and then when I pull on a few strings in the right order those very things fall into place like they had been cut to fit together. I love when that happens when I’m cutting pieces of sub floor to fit into and around the contours of our house and I love it when that happens with working out how the world around me should be. I love that I sometimes think I can manipulate things and I really love when things that I have no control over help me out and in so doing remind me that I have little if any influence in the grand scheme of things in this world. I love that I continue to delude myself in this regard for the purposes of self entertainment. I love that I am easily entertained. I love that I need very little connection to the world in order to entertain myself as I am able to imagine several different realities and contrive many entertaining scenarios. I love that sometimes these scenarios leak into the reality I share with real people and then there is often much laughter. I love when real people laugh.
Today I love working on the sub floor some more, but I really love that I will also be working on one of my side projects again and it is a fun one. I love that last night the new oven had another test run and it seems to have passed once again. I love that at the current rate of use it will soon be called the oven instead of the “new oven” and will likely be thought of as “the good old oven” before too long. I love that I hope it remains “the good old oven” for a long, long time. I love that I am still anxiously awaiting the new cook top’s installation.
Today I love warming up cold boxed cereal in the microwave, it kind of makes it seem like it’s a bit more posh, more like home cooking. 😉 I love Saturday mornings so much and am so sorry that the Owen Sound Farmers’ Market is unavailable to us during these days of troubling times. I love that I know what I miss and why. I love that when the market reopens there will no doubt be changes but this town will be thankful enough for its return that we will accept those changes and likely welcome them.
Today I love drinking coffee while I write and plan my upcoming day of chores and accomplishments.
