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.
