slowing down :: 13 april

wow, life got away from me for a while there.

work got really busy. the kitchen and house and my own personal mental well-being got neglected and i barely noticed until i FELT it.

this weekend is a three-day one. and ... shocker ... i have NO to-do list. at ALL. just a general idea of FLOW. it feels good, and necessary. ironically john is suggesting a date. a lot. okay. he's probably right. i love him. definitely the better half.

the last two months, really, have been a whirlwind carousel. car stuff. wedding stuff. school-related stuff (and my first AMI consultation, which was rocky-feeling to me, but we did pass muster). not NEARLY enough time in the home, where I find great balance. On the needles. In novels. I did commit pretty seriously to working out again, which feels awesome. Eating has not gone as well because planning went out the window. That's gonna come back, and it's gonna get simpler now that it's spring. Quinoa salads and such.

I don't want to get too complicated, in keeping with the theme I set for myself on purpose this weekend. But I did want to pop in. This place is sacred to me. I will share some pictures with you. Then I will go out onto my front porch and knit for a while in the sun in my hippie dress.

sending the world my blessings. hope your weekend's a peaceful one, too. we all need to chuck the lists sometimes.

just casting on. it's actually a lot bigger now and i've gotten into the gorgeous netting.


  1. Oof I know how you feel - I was getting overwhelmed today and need some down time to just wind down. So I'm here on your lovely blog, your sacred space. I love your thoughts. I think we all need to have time (make time) that's not working at something. Isn't it nice to be able to wake up and just do what you feel like doing, even if it includes chores. But no lists. :)

  2. I always love seeing that there is a new post from you!! <3. (Even if I am a bit slow catching up with my blog-reading sometimes...!) :-)
