Right now I'm sitting in the kitchen before dawn writing this post. I've been reading many books at the same time about mindfulness and taking notes. My sister and I are reading together Full Catastrophe Living by Jon Kabat-Zinn. Since October, I've been reading and learning about being mindful in my everyday movements and meditating daily. I'm learning I have a lot to learn.
My husband and I were discussing that this new house does not feel like home ... yet. We feel like we are on an extended vacation. He thinks it's because we eat lunch on the patio daily weather permitting and that's something we would do on vacation. I think it's like a condo rental with all of my 'stuff' in it. When I go to cook it's weird trying to remember where everything is, just like vacation. Yesterday the electrician was here updating the original electrical panel (eep!) and the electricity was turned off for five hours. That then felt like we were at camp. We are happy here and I guess that homey feeling will follow.
I did start a daily haiku and it seems many of you are doing the same. I agree with you that September is such a glorious transitional month to witness saying goodbye to summer and hello to the early beginnings of fall.
My knitting is still at a lull and I'm just going with it. I continue to work on the poncho and believe I'm close to being done. I'm enjoying the dream state of what I would like to work on and have a running list of casting on ideas. Cooler weather will help with the impending knitting frenzy.
I've been reading lots and lots about heart healthy diets, menu plans and deciding what needs to go and what needs to be incorporated. I do love learning! Also I'm plotting out how to get in more walking and exploring the area's parks.
Have a wonderful weekend, friends!
