I have been taking a break from technology. Not really on purpose, but it has turned out to be so nice. I need to do something like this once a month. Seems like there is always an ebb and flow around here and balance means knowing what needs attention when it does. Not necessarily giving everything attention all the time.
The house. We are in the middle of a bit of a repair from some Spring leaking. So that is taking up space in our energy pool. As are a few new design ideas. And a broken coffee maker. Oy! And getting things organized because that crazy kitchen wall has gotten some attention lately. I feel like we have finally found our design groove here. It took a while.
The girls. They are so awesome. Oh, I always say that. And we are not without our challenges, but life is good. We're at such a fun stage with so much more freedom than ever before. Poet is almost done potty training and it's really exciting. Everyone in this house is setting her up for success and it's so beautiful to see that happening. So many big changes in all three girls lately... so cool to be in the midst of it all.
The weather. There's no snow and that is a lightening feeling in itself. Sunsine on my face is not something I take for granted. I am soaking it up (when it's not raining). And I am anxiously awaiting the blossoms from our apple and cherry trees because they only last a week... but they leave such a nice feeling for months afterward. I am looking forward to the summer months.
The polar bears. Man. They are taking me on an incredible journey. I met a baby polar bear last week that has been weighing on my heart. And I met a baby grizzly bear who was coloured to be the body double for the polar bear. Because of so many incredible reasons - it's impossible to share. But it has left a mark on me. Sigh...
The studio: is hopping. I am grateful for always having a full TO-DO list. And then some. I'm getting better at saying no and filtering down to the things that mean the most to me.
Today: I am taking the day to catch up on work. I am in the middle of a busy scripting season and have projects going on in a handful of different countries (crazy). And I'm trying to get prepared for my TEDx talk in 2 weeks (oh man). OH. MAN. THANK GOODNESS THE COFFEE MAKER HAS BEEN REPLACED.
