Our kitchen is undergoing total transformation – the tear everything out, set up a camping stove and make-do-in-the-master-bath-for-four-months kind of renovation. I knew there would be chaos and crack of dawn contractor schedules to be coordinated, so I purposely freed myself of commitments.
I’ve purposely been quiet.
I stopped teaching yoga and set workshops aside.
I rolled out my mat, practiced and meditated at home,
(with Bisbee by my side.)
Yet, quiet hasn’t meant idle…
My sister and I threw Dad a 70th birthday party,
created a storybook out of 500 family pictures,
and organized a fabulous family photo shoot…
I’ve read 10 books on how to think, tap, eat, move, love, knit, die,
and forgive your way through life.
My favorite was about a dog.
I created monthly menus so I won’t have to worry about what to make for dinner again.
(I don’t want that frustration in my new kitchen!)
I’ve been knitting dishcloths – anticipating my new arrival,
like a mama making booties for hers.
I Started a Foolish Project (and you should too!)
One day I might share it. If I can pull it off. It’s that foolish.
Now, as the drywall dust settles,
amidst all this quiet…
I miss you.
I have ideas
(and an almost-finished, rock-star-sparkly kitchen)
to share with you.
Stay tuned for the unveiling
(of all kinds of good-ness).
