Life has been busy. Period. There's been work, the building of a new house, the needs of young children, the necessity of keeping things together, steady and moving, even the recent time change, which always leaves me feeling like I'm part bear with an overwhelming desire to get in bed and hibernate. Needless to say, I have had nary an hour to sit down and keep up with this, my dear little family journal. But indeed the last two weeks can perhaps be summarized with:
Watching buddhist monks create a sand mandala from scratch.
Finding ourselves in some trippy situations.
Baking and concocting some out of the ordinary food, which I'm not sure was a total success.
Heading to Seattle for a work trip, which made me glad for my life in sunny LA, but also left me pining for what I do believe is the world's best doughnut.
Watching our little new home slowly take shape and envisioning our lives there to come.
Goals that have been met and defended.
And that we are all still happy and well (even the spud versions of us) despite the hectic pace we all seem to demand of ourselves. A little respite might soon be in order.
