Today I Love Fixing My Snowblower

A sunset
Not a snowblower …

Today I love fixing my snowblower, the spare one that wouldn’t start last winter. I love that I fixed it by discovering that the key to it was hanging up in the shed and realizing that I had been trying to start it without a key. I love that I was only angry with myself for a few moments and then I realized I would be writing about it and that made me laugh. I love that there is no way I’m going to post a picture of a snowblower in July so enjoy this lovely photo of a sunset instead, okay? I love how much we got done at the cottage, love that the kitchen cupboards that were there have all been ripped out and the ones that used to be here in our weird kitchen at home all fit in at the cottage except for two small lowers that were eight inches wide each and really, who needs eight inch wide cupboards? I love that I’ve put the two eight inch wide cupboards in storage because maybe we will need eight inch wide cupboards, there’s talk of a peninsula or an island going into the cottage kitchen yet. I love how things have worked out in regards to kitchens and cupboards and locations and things this year, though really, this year needed some things to love about it, didn’t it? I love that I have made the best of 2020 that I could so far and will continue to do so in the hope that it does the same for me.

Today I love that it is Monday and I have a long list of things to do and I’m hoping to feel very accomplished by the end of the day. I love that there is laundry on the go here and some dishes that will get washed up soon and I have some cooking plans and there will be freshly made oatmeal by the end of the day and this batch will have some strawberries in it, fresh ones, with honey and happiness and a big slice of love as the garnish. I love cooking even if it is just simmering porridge. I love that I have managed to make porridge without making a mess last time and today I’ll be going for batch number two without a mess. I love that the weather has turned a little cooler, though I loved that the bay was the perfect antidote to the heat we had going on over the weekend.

Today I love clouds sliding by overhead. I love bright sunshine and birds singing. I love all the friends I have that are posting their outdoor fun, some foraging, some hiking, some cleaning up, some photographing or painting or just hanging out in the real world for a bit of freedom.

Today I love coffee and tonight I may just have me a big old cup while the sunsets, that’s pretty normal behavior for me.

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.
