This week has really taken it out of me.
There have been four doctor/vet visits in all, all of them involving someone I love (including me) being poked by sharp needles. I popped my hamstring in yoga class and limped for a few days. I got pulled over for a WAY overdue inspection sticker.
So, every night I have been in bed before 10pm, reading.
There has been an iced mocha, an iced americano, an iced pumpkin spice latte.
We have been eating "kale and--": kale and Annie's mac and cheese, kale in tacos, kale in quesadillas, then going around again.
Inspired by Hannah's Making Space Cleanse, I have found moments to sit, and soak in quiet. To wittle down my "need-tos" and "to-dos". I have been letting the floors get fuzzy and feeding too many pretzels to my son.
I am doing what I can, and not much more.
It's been hard. And it's been okay.
There has been rain, and rain lilies, and now a cooler, greener world.
Making a practice of pausing, breathing, noticing. Speaking softly, both to myself and to others. Or trying to. Allowing myself to be just as I am, allowing the moment to be exactly as it is.
Looking forward to the weekend oh-so much.
Peace to you. Happy fall.
