bonsoir from the woods.
beau, pug, and moi headed out late afternoon for a couple days of working, reading, and resting sans the sounds of the city. breathing deeper already.
this week was a challenging one (hot, random frustrations, and occasional feelings of overwhelm) coupled with greatness (progress of tranquil space arlington *new* hOMe, co-leading a tranquil teens program, meeting with a naturopath, date nights with beau + friends). it's always the yin and yang, right?
week in review:
2 yoga classes
2 gym excursions
hosted tranquil space teachers chez moi for potluck
ortho appt = allowed to do more with right shoulder
met with co-leader of tranquil space foundation fall event to PLAN (save date october 14)
dermatologist appt = no unruly moles this year
co-taught tranquil teens program for 60ish running start girls

shipped oodles of TranquiliT orders: shop through 7/30 at 40% off using code SUMMERTIME
penned thank you notes to snail mail
today's heat coupled with random frustrations that come with running a business have set me back a bit. add to it that next week = finals, moving tranquil space arlington to its new hOMe, and prepping to head to texas for a 2-week book tour = in need of serious self-care. plan to take full advantage of the woods by reflecting, resting, and reading as much as possible.
may you, too, bask in moments of tranquility this weekend.
