Today I Love Grocery Shopping In My Kitchen

construction materials and tools and my office
Deep in the construction zone

Today I love grocery shopping in my kitchen at Kelly’s Island on my computer. I love that online grocery shopping is an adventure in itself because mostly you get what you order but sometimes you get things that aren’t what you would have bought and it’s always fun to see how that ends up. I love grocery shopping in person, but these virtual adventures have been fun and often very satisfying. I love food and food flyers and words that describe food and words that describe eating as well. I love how we plan some meals and then spontaneously make or buy others, it’s like life is some sort of adventure in itself and that makes me happy. I love that I realized long ago that while we can assume what is coming and usually be right, it is never guaranteed and so it’s best to be prepared to accept that things can change in an instant and if one is prepared to embrace that, life is mostly good no matter what it brings. I love that this weekend is a working weekend if everything goes well and the installation of the counter tops that fell through at the beginning of the week are scheduled for Saturday morning. I love that those counter tops will be the first big step we’ve had in a while toward a finished kitchen though many significant smaller steps have been going on along the way.

Today I love the pounding rain that danced across the deck this morning. I love that the earth has been cooled down by that splash of water. I love that the sky is clouded over and the birds are singing and the rain is still coming and going in little sprinkles. I love the way weather can change a mood. I love that I can choose how to react to the mood of the day and today I choose to enjoy the cool damp air that is wafting through my windows and making me feel clean and well. I love that this air is easier to breathe.

Today I love that there are peaches from Georgia in the stores and though they seem to be small they are tasty and remind me that our own Canadian peaches will be here in a couple of months and then we will eat peaches like they were the only food we had access to. I love that I have been dreaming of peach pie when I think about baking and that may be a thing that has to happen soon. I love that I’m going to call it practice for when our peaches arrive from the Niagara fruit belt.

Today I love drinking coffee in the far room in the middle of the construction materials and tools while I write.

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.
