Today I Love Busy Days In June

Goodbye popcorn ceiling

Today I love busy days in June, just like this one. I love how cool and clean and clear the early morning was and how bright and warm and right this day is turning out to be. I love that I am doing several jobs this morning and they include writing and working in the kitchen on food prep and working in the living room on renovation stuff. I love that I am rather good at doing walls and ceilings, though I’m not a pro. I love that the popcorn ceiling in the living room will be a smooth flat ceiling by lunch time today and the holes around where the new lights were wired in will be covered over. I love that I am feeling better physically even though my sinuses and chest are loosening up and things are getting ickier. I love that this too shall pass. I love how June reminds me of getting out of school and having summer spread out before me like a vast opportunity to learn and read and work and swim and relax and ride my bike and just be a general, all around waif and child of nature. I love how many flowers and plants bloom in June, love the sudden smells of blossoms around almost every corner. I love June.

Today I love that it is suddenly Thursday and all I can say is, wow, where did that week go? I love how good Thursdays can be, offering to be the real last full day of the work week, since we all know that slacker, Friday is only half a weekday and just throws off all its obligations and joins up with the weekend as soon as it can. I love Thursday’s diligence, good day, Thursday, you’re doing well and we’re all proud of you. I love suddenly Thursdays so very much, they’re special.

Today I love gathering intentions to suddenly make spontaneous rhubarb jam. I love that I can’t decide on it ahead of time because then it wouldn’t be spontaneous. I love rhubarb jam as much as I love rhubarb pie. I love that they are both pretty easy to make. I love that my kitchen is coming together with all its finishing touches and I love that flooring and backsplash are starting to get my attention and soon I hope we’ll be deciding on the tiles for that backsplash and ordering the flooring we’ve decided we want for the whole downstairs. I love that we take our time to figure these things out and then when we do decide we refuse to regret anything. I love that I only have one regret about our kitchen so far and it is that I regret thinking about installing one specific thing in time to have done it on the kitchen side of the wall so now I have to cut into the laundry room side of the wall to get it done and that means one more drywall patch, but what’s one more patch?

Today I love sipping my coffee while I write and contemplate my busy June morning and day.

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.
