It's going to be a cool day, and welcome after the heat of this week. So the breeze blowing through the trees has an almost fall or early spring feel to it. I am mesmerized by the secluded feeling. I have neighbors close on two sides, yet don't realize they are there. Hubby and I sat out here very early today sipping coffee and eating our breakfast. Our days are developing a different cadence. We no longer have a fenced yard, we are working on it. So each morning starts with a walk with the boys, each evening ends that way too. There are short trips after work too. Everything feels more intentional.

Work has been a tad taxing, Hubby is moving into a new building and office, sadly their offices were not worth the repairs after the flood. It's a tangled mess, isn't it always when people won't accept responsibility? But their new digs are really nice, and I think ultimately after the chaos of moving that many people for the second time in six months... well... frankly I think they will love it! And Hubby is still Downtown St. Louis, so we still get to have lunch together and carpool. Life is good. Fearing I would miss my coffee, the Hubs was sweet enough to get me a coffee/tea maker for my office.
On other fronts at work, we are scurrying to make some huge operational changes on an even larger scale and it's been a bit frantic. Honestly, I am starting to get the two new systems mixed up, as it is so much to learn simultaneously. I am sure the folks orchestrating these changes are starting to think more than a few of us are a bit "touched"...
Yesterday it occurred to me that I am heading to Brazil in a mere 20... no wait 19 days. That alone is mind boggling. It's going to be a crazy month.
It also occurred to me for someone that doesn't do change well, I am currently involved in a massive amount of it. So in for a penny, in for a pound... I went and cut off all my long beautiful hair! Okay, so maybe not all of it, but over 6 inches is gone.... I just felt I needed to. In fact that is the most I chopped off since 2012... I might just be a bit "touched".
|Looks like I've been sheared!|
|Why yes my new house did come with a decorator...|
|Ignore my shadow... doesn't the light switch cover look amazing against the blue?|
Tonight it will be Hubby and I, he's had a few adventures with our new house, so we need to run out and find a few repair parts. But the weekend is just ahead and I am so excited... we will get to have mini-me for most of it.
Way off in the distance I am hearing faint sounds of the world waking up, a train chugged past a few minutes ago, I can almost hear the cars heading to work, and I am sitting here peacefully absorbing the sounds of birds, romping squirrels and the wind rustling through the trees... what an amazing way to start the day. I think I will simply enjoy another cup of coffee while I contemplate that change can be amazing and wonderful!
