This week has been full ...I am ready to just be. breathe.
At times I feel like a leaf just blown about by the wind.
Had to navigate thru some rough seas with my oldest. Parenting a teen is no walk in the woods.
Talking with him about transparency and being truthful, it's hard, very hard. I just put my head down and continue to work at it. How I love him so...
Riding my horses hours at a time... teaching one to slow down and one to pick up the pace, I guess there is balance in that. Only a few more weeks before they retire for winter- which is bitter sweet.
Finding myself restless...many ongoing knitting projects and not one finished, it's as if I start a new one and excited if only for a few minutes then I regret it and try to finish the old ones hidden in the basket.
A kindred sprit notified me that my shop was not set up for PayPal payment.
(So I can only guess that there must be some frustrated customers)
grrrrrr. Fixed now...better late than never.
Not inspired to cook. The seasonal shift between summer and winter is hard for me as a vegetarian, summer is easy, raw veggies and quick salads...well it doesn't do the trick this time of year. I crave something more substantial and robust. Finding myself eating more bread craving carbs and gravitating towards sweets...not good. This must change.
This summer I have been training cross fit, hard but effective, except I ruined my right knee. So much so I couldn't ride for several weeks and had to be in a brace- it hurt like the Dickens it's so painful - Aleve seemed to be part of my daily diet....after going to the orthopedic this week Doc told me I had bone bruising.
Bone bruising? Heals over time- that is good news, I thought I had to have surgery...not good. No more cross fit for me- I have to figure out something else...before soon the snow will fly and slalom season is full swing.
This weekend, I plan on going for a long walk with my dogs in the woods, bake an apple pie, go on a date with chef on Saturday( it's been years)....then the rest of the time I will practice breathing...
Maybe some barefoot dancing on the kitchen floor with Foghorn.
Hey it all works if I can remember to inhale-exhale.
...and now to raking up some leaves that are blown about.
How was your week- did you remember to breathe?
