Today I love plans for a good day that include a quick run to the cottage to take care of a couple of things that need doing. I love how often my mind comes up with things that could make life better and some of those things are doable and on some occasions they get done and that’s so exciting that I forget about the things that don’t get done and the things that are just too crazy to even attempt. I love that sometimes the things that appear too crazy to attempt get attempted anyway and on occasion they work and then I’m all way too proud of myself and full of self righteous attitude for a while, but only as long as it’s justified, I hope. I love that the whole downstairs renovation is still moving steadily, though slowly forward. I love that I get more things done every week, despite the fact that I am not as quick at things as I used to be. I love that right and fast aren’t always soulmates, and I am determined to do this change correctly ’cause I have no desire to redo any of it. I love how enjoyable it is to work in our new kitchen, and I am amused by how many changes we are discussing for the cottage kitchen that seem to quietly mimic the new kitchen at home.
Today I love that our weekend was glorious because we went to the cottage to relax and we worked hard to put in the dock and took care of a few other things, but still got to go kayaking every day and even went swimming in that cold old bay on Sunday before coming home to the heat of our little city, though I must confess that I only got in as far as my waist and so this was the first year that someone else beat me to being the first in our household to go into the water completely. I love that I still have all summer to hit the bay yet.
Today I love apple coconut oatmeal. I love that I have some groceries to get this week because we have some plans for great meals. I love that my lunch for today is leftovers from a meal I really enjoy. I love that I made that meal with kefir instead of sour cream and it turned out very good. I love experimental cooking almost as much as I love baking.
Today I love drinking coffee and writing while I get myself ready for the road and the things I need to do.
