Today I love the farmers’ market opening online and figuring out all the logistics required to get people who need things in touch with people who have things. I love that this is just in the nick of time as we are needing a new bucket of honey, how handy is that? I love that we can now browse through the Owen Sound Farmers’ Market any time of the day or night from the comfort of our home, place our orders, and then pick them up on a Saturday afternoon. I love that I will always miss the open air parts and the indoor parts of the market and will miss meeting up with the people there, there was more to it than just buying and selling, but when we get to do that again I know it will be among people who know every reason that compels them to go to the market. I love that we will be looking over the market site later today and ordering our honey and maybe a few other things as well. I love that we keep finding ways to make this new normal okay and some of them are way beyond just okay, some of the new parts of our new life are absolutely wonderful. I love that there are things I’m going to miss about this when some of these things go back to whatever semblance of normal they are headed towards, love that because for now I get to enjoy the way things are.
Today I love that the next few days are going to be warming up and climbing steadily to temperatures above what we would normally expect in the middle of May. I love that we carted off a bunch of yard waste to the compost site yesterday and today we’re hoping to get rid of the materials that have been deemed waste from the renovation thus far. I love that every step, no matter how small, is a step forward in life and in this house that has so much become my home now. I love this place, love that it keeps changing and yet that it stays static and stable in the things that count.
Today I love that we are getting ready to feed the hummingbirds here, that we have plans for growing veggies again this year, that our gardening is constantly an experiment though there are things that we know how to grow and that we enjoy growing and eating and those would be our staples. I love that we are currently debating not cutting the lawn this year and so far the lawn is winning the debate, at least for the month of May.
Today I love drinking coffee and charging myself up mentally and physically to do some writing and figure out what we’re buying from the market and haul off some garbage and maybe do a little radio show recording if the day allows.
