A Kind Week
As quickly as life becomes overwhelming busy and full, a lull appears and days are slow, easy and kind to me. This week has been kind. Each day was mindful and purposeful. The weather has been mild and reflects early autumn, chilly mornings followed by a sun that tries to heat the day. Our daily walks after dinner as slowly coming to an end as the sun sets earlier each day.
The salads that I craved in March are giving way to warm piping hot soups. Menu plans are altered to reflect the seasonal shift. I have an acorn squash in the frig with my name on it and I've already stir fried some sliced brussel sprouts in olive oil-yum!
Since August was the month of relocating kids, my yoga routine slipped away from me. I am reinstating that little bit of time for myself and my joints and muscles thank me. Surprisingly, I haven't lost much of the flexibility I gained. Again, a kind week.
If you were to snoop on my iphone you would find many many photos of the leaves turning colors. Frodo now knows when I stop that there is a moment to capture. He is a trained photo assistant. These photos that I'm sharing today are from my sister's garden with the big camera. I had fun walking around snapping photos and missing my photo assistant.
How was your week? Was it kind? What are you embracing as the season shifts?
