i would rather talk about what happened today because yesterday was disastrous to put it nicely. Yesterday, during the Thunder moon, I went to bed around 6pm because everything was unravelling so rapidly I couldn’t keep it all together & needed to reset. Tears were bubbling up for no apparent reason. I didn’t plan to sleep for 13 hours but that is what happened. Luckily I have the most amazingly understanding family, that moved on allowing me to rest. I love them so.
But like I said, I would rather talk about today. My days are better when I can be in & appreciate each moment. It’s not like anything spectacular happened, it was more about noticing the moments & smiling in the fullness of their simplicity.
today I . . .
~ woke up to our baby, Finnegan, walking into our room holding his blanket.
~ drank a cup of coffee brewed with a real dried red pepper from Santa Fe sitting on top of the grounds.
~ made a yummy green smoothie with hemp nuts & cacao nibs.
~ swam with Finnegan in our pool. Love how the water can instantly cool my skin.
~ added some life to the pool area with planted grasses in baskets.
~ ate some whole foods gluten-free nutty bread with ghee. (so incredibly yummy)
~ sat on our porch in the blanket of humid heat with Larry & worked on my newest necklace.
~let Larry take out the tomato plants & we planned our living wall.
~ swam some more with Finnegan, he loves to dive for rocks.
~ went to Wabash Feed Store to see the chickens & other cool things they had.
~ ate yummy veggie nachos that Larry made.
~ swam some more with Larry & Finnegan. He is so busy in the water, gathering, throwing, collecting, swimming, diving & on & on.
~ went for a walk listened to the cicadas & felt the humid warmth wrap around me like a soft blanket. Contemplated juicing for a week or so.
~ watched the thriller, Twisted, with Ashley Judd, Andy Garcia (yum) & Samuel L. Jackson with Larry (double Yum).
Much better day, I’m feeling full & whole, time for bed.
note to self – need more creativity in EVERY day!!!
Yeah Finn! he looks like a great swimmer! so proud.
Remember how many hours we spent diving for things at the Newport Hills pool?
He jumped off the diving board at his lessons last night. He is swimming before he is talking. I don’t remember diving for things for hours, but I do remember that pool. Good memories.
