Today I Love My This Sinking Feeling

faucet and sink functioning
I’m a happy man with a sinking feeling

Today I love this sinking feeling I’ve gotten from plumbing in my new sink. I love the new faucet, love that my drain is flowing freely and that I managed to make the drain and trap as low a profile as I could so that lots of things still will go under the sink. I love that today we were able to clean off the counters and use them for the first time since they were installed. I love that they are quartz so they are always at room temperature and that is a handy thing for making pastry. I love that, also because they are quartz, they are not porous so they are easily cleaned and that makes them somewhat antibacterial. I love that, also still because they are quartz, they do not need to be sealed regularly and are maintenance free for years to come. I love the way this kitchen has been coming together in the last week or so, and soon it will be done. I love that when the kitchen is finished I can work on the rest of the downstairs. I love that this week coming up is a clean and rest kind of week, putting tools and materials where they belong, cleaning out the garage of sawdust and scraps so I can return to cutting subfloor for the living room, tearing up the last of the old flooring, patching the drywall holes, I could go on and on and probably will.

Today I love that my cousin Mikey has been giving the thumbs up and wiggling his toes on command though still he isn’t fully conscious. I love that he has clearly made a choice as to which direction he intends to go with this recovery thing and I’m looking forward to hearing that he has managed to return to his family and his community who love him dearly.

Today I love how beautiful this day has been with all its sunshine and cheerful gardening weather. I love that my pandemic isolation partner spent the day gardening because I watch her when she is gardening and it is very obvious that she enjoys doing it.  I love that tomorrow there will be garden guardin’ fences going in to keep the rabbits out. I love that there are all the things that we both love out there growing now and that excites me as much as a kitchen that works does. I love that the garden is just an extension of the kitchen and for one to work the other must work too.

Today I love drinking coffee on Kelly’s Island here in our newly, mostly completely, functional kitchen.

Today I Love My This Sinking Feeling

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.
