Today I Love Garden Glory

garden tomatoes
I’m imagining how magnificent these are going to taste.

Today I love garden glory, the kind that comes when the first tomatoes come in out of the tomato patch and I once again feel like I have accomplished something spectacular, though really all I did was choose a spot for them to grow and then someone else, far more diligent than I, made sure they were watered regularly, but they are still glorious tomatoes indeed. I love that other things have been growing out there as well, though nothing is growing as wonderfully well as the gardens of my youth and childhood did, but then we have no barnyard full of fertilizer here and no garden plot the size of the one from my old home in Kemble. I love those fond memories. I love that today I am once again on my way to the cottage to finish what I started there two days ago and then take a swim and then meet some relatives who are going to use the place for the weekend. I love that we get to share that spot with them. I love that we love our home enough that we will not feel the loss. I love that we have some plans for this weekend already in place and there will be more that are made on the fly, so this weekend will be enjoyed because that is what we do.

Today I love that we have determined our needs and requirements for our trip to the market tomorrow. I love that we have not suffered unduly in the current socio-economic-pandemical climate and that I have realized I was already maybe a bit too isolated since little has changed for me. I love that things are getting a bit looser as far as restrictions are concerned, though I am concerned that we not over initiate the second wave of virus infection and end up with it being too big. I love that I got to see my primary care doctor yesterday and she is still doing a great job of keeping me alive. I love that I have a team of health care professionals that are responsible for my still being here.

Today I love peach and mango porridge, wow, that’s zingy. I love that we have enough syrup to last us for a good long while. I love that I am contemplating a new computer system for the office and my laptop is suddenly acting up and losing resources, makes me think it’s a bit sentient, and possibly jealous, but writing this should make it aware that I’m on to its little games and perhaps it will straighten up and fly right now that it knows that I know!!!

Today I love sipping coffee and contemplating glorious tomatoes.

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.
