On a side note, Bastien and friend discovered a little bit of woods on the other far edge of the playground. Inside the woods they found an “alcohol bottle”. What I love the very most is Bastien cannot even talk about it without blushing. This is all so coming of age now, isn’t it?
If every school assignment was like this one, she would be in college already.
I was pleased to get a text from my aunt on Sunday morning that my Grandma had started the second puzzle I left behind. You see, one cannot resist the allure of a puzzle. I remain grateful for this simple gift.
I’ve been pretty stressed out lately. The next month is full speed ahead with most of my biggest responsibilities of the year for Soul Stretch and Easter Dash. Almost half of my Soul Stretch retreaters have backed out in the last week due to illness and injury and managing this alone is making my head explode. We only have one week to get it all together!
Plus I’m in physical therapy fairly full time at the moment (I’m not complaining, but it is time consuming and an hour drive round trip). And, both kids have been sick… Hockey has another week left… I could go on and on. I’m sure we’re all feeling our own stress and I know it will pass. And plus, PLUS we have spring break in this month. This is both exciting and stressful in its own way.
So I’m thinking of just taking the summer off. I mean it’s a real thought that I fantasize about regularly. I’m not sure where we’d go or what we’d do but boy do I think about it!
In the meantime, I savor moments like this… my 20 minute walk that I work into most days. Just me and the Mazz. And always something beautiful to notice along the way.
