Well, three full days have passed since the tree has come down. It still sits in our backyard, cluttering up the place. We still don’t have power in our bedroom and master bath. But you know what? It’s alright. The Philosopher and I had a surprisingly awesome weekend despite all the tree drama. We got to spend time with family, friends, and each other. We also got some healthy perspective that we can come through anything with joy and peace. Our biggest prayer for the week ahead is that we don’t get overwhelmed with normal life, social obligations, insurance meetings, and construction with the tree removal and roof work.
I was able to get my normal writing done this morning. I actually have a meeting I have to go to at 11:00, so my workday will be interrupted just a bit, but when I get back, I’ll jump right back in and get my editing and Maiedae work finished. Tonight, I’m looking forward to cooking some ricotta and spinach pasta shells and doing some chores around the house. Then? REST.
It is so interesting to write when you have a bazillion things on your mind. I find it much harder to get in my zone when my mind is full of thoughts and to-do lists. But that’s okay. My mind can’t always be clear every single day.
Some things I’m looking forward to for the day:
~Seeing my hubby at lunch and after work
~running through a night yoga vinyasa before bed
~cooking something new
~editing on my novel
~quality devotional time with God
~quiet and peace
Some things I’m looking forward to this week:
