This is the old normal in the new space. I'm feeling the beat a bit more, a bit more capable of living up to my own ideals and also a bit more able to let go of perfect. Besides, where we are right now might not be perfect, but it is right where we need to be. I have that much faith, at least.
The clearing and cleaning still feels so good. I had grand plans yesterday, but today I think a little bit here and there is quite enough.
These spaces sing to me, little bits of goodness I can remind myself of in my days, the reminders of the sacred and worthwhile.
The play in the new spaces is just the same, and also brand new. See?
Some watercolours from last week. Left to right is Jenna's picture of her with Leni, Morgan's "scary fireworks" mostly in black (lol) and Rowan's, um, well I was painting my legs but for some reason mummy kept telling me to take Peter Paintbrush for a walk over here, so... hehehe
Little tomato-stained faces from more raw soups.
No pictures of cake. Well, you know how cake does around here. ;)
It's all OK. All of it. The univited strains and scary moments and the bits of myself that I don't like to look at too closely and the challenge of meeting the present as a gift sometimes... It's all OK. Because I'm here for a reason.
Though... it helps that Rowan slept through last night for the first time in over a week, and woke up cheerful and cuddly. ;) And before breakfast, I baked another cake. :)
