Today I love the robins song that cheerfully fills the morning and wakes me gently just before the phone tells me what time it is and that it’s time to get up. I love how fast I am able to grab my phone and turn it off. I love that sometimes I drift off to sleep again and forget that my phone had other plans for me. I love that all plans are fluid for now and if I don’t get up when my phone tells me to then that’s just too bad for it. I love that I can get up, make a coffee, take it back to bed and drink it while I burn through twenty percent of my phone’s charge before I get up. I love that I feel absolutely no guilt about that. I love that last night I was still working on the renovation here in the house at nine o’clock. I love that I have plans to do more on that today, but also to bake because, as I said before, all plans are fluid. I love that supper plans are made and they are on me and those will be executed because I am feeling hungry already. I love that I have a good healthy appetite that may be from boredom, and yet have not gained any weight during isolation. I love that that might not hold for much longer as we have been talking about some seriously decadent baking.
Today I love that every now and again I write fake isolation journal posts on Facebook and I keep changing the perspective, one day it’s from a person, the next it’s from the cat. I love that the last one was from the dog. I love that people have become confused over the number of pets I have in my house, though I will share the secret with you, there are no pets in our home, unless you count the spiders in the garden that are only here in the summer and that would be fair to do because I often name them.
Today I love that yesterday I did everything backwards, showered first and then went to work cutting holes in the ceiling to pull wire and that made a mess of my wardrobe and hair and I was all like, “Oh well … Too bad.” I love that I pulled that wire and installed the boxes for lighting that was never in the living room before and for the new light to replace the one in the old dining room that was in the wrong place. I love that this is taking forever to do so that it gets thought about at every step and we’ve caught several mistakes that we would have had to live with, like second switches for some lights that should be in convenient places but either weren’t or didn’t exist at all, but now they do.
Today I love that there is coffee to be drunk on this warm and rainy day of glorious pleasantness, mmmmmmm, I’ll take that all day long.
