If we were having coffee, I’d welcome you to our garden to sit on the grass. We tried it yesterday with some family friends and I had such a blast! The weather was gorgeous and we spent hours playing outside. I’d like to do more of that, so if you don’t mind, make yourself comfortable on the soft mossy grass and smell roses.
Tell me, how have you been? How was your week? Oh, and what would you like to drink? Give me a second to fetch refreshments.
My week was great. There was a lot more balance between work and play. On the work front, I completed another submission to my writing mentor and feel really pleased with myself. One more and I’ll be up-to-date… I wanted to tell you that there are some shifts in my writing. Lately, words want to come out in lines which I have no plausible explanation for. Here is an example. Another thing that makes my heart sing is when I share my offering with other women. I had two sessions with amazing women this week and somehow I feel stronger for them. Witnessing their transformation opens my heart up and strengthens my own practice. One of those sessions was about the writers’ block, and I am convinced that the process helped my own writing in equal measure.
On the play front, I had a luxuriating massage on Wednesday. I felt lighter, brighter and happier for it. Thank you, amazing Charlotte Kanyi! My back is feeling a lot better and I’ve been enjoying long walks in our local park. My son likes checking out dark passages and dens under the trees in case there are any bears. Yes, bears… You never know. We call them out, but I don’t think they are home. Ever. On Thursday, I stumbled across a tai-chi class. It’s offered outside of the cafe we visit regularly and it’s free of charge. I joined a group of 10 half-way through the class. I was surprised that my body remembered all the moves. It missed this practice so much. So, I think there is a new welcome addition to my weekly activities.
Well, better go. We are going to a farm today. Yes, farm. My son loves meeting his favourite characters from books in real life. Old McDonald style… And our family friends are joining us again today, so I look forward to a fun day out.
Have a great week-end! And don’t forget to visit Diana’s blog. She hosts weekend coffee shares. You can even leave your own post in the relevant link.
