This week has mostly been about taking it easy, and perhaps eating a little too much ice cream. I had another procedure Monday and haven’t done much since but try to manage my discomfort. Down time is always needed–a moment to put your feet up, collect your thoughts, and assess what’s behind and ahead of you. I appreciate those moments of planning and reflecting. Last weekend was especially busy–multiple store events, celebrating my sister’s 30th birthday, spending time with my parents–so doing less the last couple days has been good for me.
The coming days and weeks will see a lot of effort on my part to re-establish routines. Life hasn’t been following a familiar rhythm, unless that rhythm is chaos, so my intention is to get back to normal. Even things as ordinary as walking the dogs regularly has been missing from my day-to-day. Aside from going to an art show, my plans for the weekend are to go for a few runs and clean the house from top to bottom. We’re hoping to have friends over for dinner before we move so I’ve got pretty good incentive. I picked up these flowers to brighten my mood and motivate me. There really is something special about fresh flowers in your favorite vase–the room is instantly more cheerful and inviting. I’m grateful. Here’s to a productive, rewarding, and totally routine weekend.
