Happy Monday, all–hope everyone had a nice weekend. Here the weather was beautiful and we stayed around home due to some health concerns in the family. Despite the stress of this, it was (mostly) a quiet weekend.
Loving: My new yoga studio. I was worried about being able to find a teacher that I liked as much as my old one in France, but I got lucky on the first try. I’ve been practicing again for a few weeks now and I feel good and STRONG.
Thinking about: My husband’s health issues. Hoping I can be as supportive as I need to be and in the right way.
Anticipating: Celebrating our first Halloween with the girls in the U.S. I’m so excited about taking them trick or treating. We tried to do this for several years in France, but people don’t really celebrate it there so it’s always kind of a dud. I can’t wait for the girls to experience the real deal. :)
Watching: ‘Haven’–an X-Files-y show that I found on Netflix and am really loving. Audrey Parker has the best clothes.
Listening to: Whatever’s on the ‘Passenger’ channel on Pandora. I haven’t strayed much from this kind of music lately.
Eating: Lots of superfoods. I think we had quinoa and kale at least twice this week, but my family members are being good sports about it. Pears, sweet potatoes, broccoli–I’m craving healthy at the moment. I have to take advantage of it while it lasts.
Wishing: That I could be accepting of where I am right now without feeling like I need to be doing more. I have a hard time slowing down, and it has been two months now since I left behind my job in France. Granted, there has been plenty to do with the move and my days are pretty full just running our household, but it’s hard for me not to be working. I need to trust that the right thing will come along at the right time, and that I should make the most of the present and the chance it gives me to really focus on home and family. I’m working on it.
What are you up to today?
