I went to my new family doctor and in less time than the previous drive, one way, I was home again. Instead of a whole day gone, it was merely a blip in a day of getting groceries and the mail. What used to be major is now routine and that is such a relief. Plus I don't have to drive all the way through a major city to do it. Huge relief.
I did all my little errands in under two hours, and then came home to knit.
I made a chai tea latte with my spiffy new frother from my niece's tea party (Steeped Tea frother. Works great) and watched curling and had a wonderful afternoon.
And this morning, I awoke feeling so bright and cheerful. The sun is not quite up when I get up, but it is light enough that I don't have to turn on lights to make my coffee. Spring is so close.
That makes me really happy, till I think of daylight savings time, and how next week, it will once again be dark when I get up in the morning to make coffee. I wouldn't normally worry about it and just live life according to the sun but the world around me marches to the beat of a different drummer, so I cave too.
Still, spring is coming and even stupid daylight saving measures cannot change that. Sun will soon be hitting my bookcases full force in the morning and I look forward to it.
This morning I took the time to enjoy the morning light while I have it and just knit to honour the tremendous privilege I have in this world. I have sunlight, I have knitting, I have coffee and I have the time to chose these things. How lucky is that?
Today is going to be another great day. I am certain of it.
