Today I love the sweet night air that filled our home all night long while it drifted in through the years first open, night time windows. I love that the house stayed warmer than it keeps in winter with the heat on, but only just a little. I love that we keep our house pretty cool in winter. I love how easy it was to fall asleep last evening with that gentle breeze brushing past me in the night. I love that I slept the sleep of the innocent and woke up feeling rested, even though I’m still not able to work like I used to. I love that this does not stop me. I love that I am catching up on all the bruising I should have suffered through my life when ever I hit myself or bumped into anything, because now that I am on these meds I need to stay alive, all i need to do is elbow a stud or hit my hand with a crowbar and I start to bleed and then bruise up afterwards, so soon I’ll have caught up and I can maybe take a break from it for a while? I love that I’m able to find the humor in many things that likely should bother me more than they do. I love that we are heading out to the cottage to give the house a chance to get through a somewhat uninhabitable phase of its restructuring. I love that I’m okay with missing some of the dusty stuff, my lungs will be happier I’m sure. I love that there will still be plenty of dust and dirt for me to play in when we get back next week.
Today I love how many things we hope to do at the cottage, reading, exploring the yard, listening to music, cooking good food and eating it, we’ll be busy I’m telling you. I love that the cottage is such a calm place to be most times and that this year it will likely be even calmer, though we will miss having company there if that cannot happen. I love that we are hoping to hold a small music festival there this year and I mean really small, likely no more than five couples who each have musical talent to offer so that the performers will also be the entertainment.
Today I love discussions about rhubarb and what to do with it. I love that I am hoping to make some pies soon and rhubarb custard is one of the pies I’m going to make. I love that the ground is looking very happy this year, and that we’ve had some good surprises with our planting. I love that we will be eating fish this weekend. I love that we are starting our weekend early, today fact.
Today I love sipping coffee while I get caught up on my writing and scramble to get things ready for us to go to the cottage.
