Today I Love How Easy Yesterday Was

Northern sun ...

Today I love the sun painting the back of the clouds in the sky with it's image so that it shines through for us to see. I love how easy yesterday was to get through. I love that we spent the day reorganizing the kitchen because that's the true spirit of the holidays, right? Doing something together that is important to both of you even if it is...

Today I Love My Christmas Morning

Happy everything, to everyone

Today I love my Christmas morning and the joy it has brought me thus far. I love that there was an exchange of wrapped books on loan, the gift being the opportunity to read something that the other person loved and then return it when done. I love new Christmas traditions that feel like they could become old and wonderful very quickly and this one...

Today I Love Laughter Everywhere

It's on! Christmas baking ...

Today I love laughter everywhere, at the market, on the streets, in the bank and especially at home. I love how everyone at the market has suddenly realized that this is the last time they will see most everyone else at the market before Christmas, and possibly the last time they'll see them this year. I love how many hands I had to shake to get through the...

Today I Love Abandoning Worry

Happy coming holidays

Today I love abandoning worry and the fact that this year I've had less worry to abandon and I've abandoned it sooner. Normally I give up on worrying about Christmas at about 11PM on Christmas eve, but in the last few years I've been able to give that worry over to the past much earlier and this year I've already handed it off, and I love that. I...

I love that on her birthday so many of her friends write TIL posts even if they don't normally. I love that some of them put lots of thought into it and discover how great it is to write such...

Today I Love Old Time Radio

Contemplation ...

Today I love old time radio, like when they used to have live guests come in and play. I love that today, " The Dock" put on a morning Christmas concert and invited some of the members of our musical community in to perform. I love that we got asked and I love that, even though I woke up feeling sick today, we made it...

Today I Love My Kindle

Untouched white ...

Today I love my Kindle because it is like carrying a library in your pocket. I still love the smell of real books, the feel of them in my hands, the weight of them and the way you know how far through a story you are by how many pages you have left to read, but I love that I can finish one book on my kindle and...

Today I Love The Magic

Christmas baking is in there somewhere ...

Today I love the magic of this season. I love how everything seems to happen in the next couple of weeks. I love that Winter begins in four days, on Thursday the 21st. I love that on that day, the rotation of our planet around the sun reaches the point where continuing on starts to bring the northern hemisphere around to face the sun...
