transition is exciting and flurry-like. my morning began with a lovely tour of our new home as i meet weekly with my contractor. lots of the paint colors we chose last week are on the wall - gorgeous subtle shades, the bamboo flooring is down in the second studio, and it's truly beginning to take shape. i walked away feeling zombie-esque. it's easy to succumb to decision paralysis and i think i hit the limit this morning. however, the whole experience is super-exciting and rewarding on many levels.
last night i was delighted to have finished off some pending projects so i begged beau to take moi and pug down to see the moonlit cherry blossoms along the tidal basin. en route we called a dear friend and asked if he'd like to join. we picked him up and had a lovely moonlit walk along the tidal basin while catching up and sharing the latest. as we were almost to the car, the sky opened and we got soaked. i loved it. nothing beats running around the cherry blossoms with the rain falling. my poor pug was less than pleased. yay for throwing a little adventure into the everyday!
my weekend travel to denver has been postponed so i am delighted to have four days open up on my calendar. one day involves yoga and reading, another involves a yoga workshop and writing, and the other two have been filled with meetings and more yoga. finding space is such a treat, especially since the next few months will be a bit harried with the move, opening, and travels/teaching in june. i'm headed to the midwest yoga conference to show TranquiliT and then off to omega to lead a week-long hip tranquil yoga chick workshop. join me if you can! omega is so lovely and is where i spent a month last year in the jivamukti teacher training. july opens up for some breathing space.
in the interim, i'm trying to carve out a little breathing space whenever i can. yesterday i had 2 hours in between a meeting and teaching so i dashed off to a nearby cafe and caught up on some e-mails and writing. then i ventured into the moonlight to see the cherry blossoms. i've got a study date with my BFF tomorrow and a writing date with a girlfriend in georgetown on sunday. all these respites provide welcomed relief from the daily routine. how can you, too, find some spice to throw into your oh-so-busy schedule? do tell.
