NOTE: After a lovely break, “Hello Monday” posts have returned!
HELLO QUIET | This week it’s just me and the pups in the house. Claire is in Halifax. Cole and Caden are in Toronto. Chloé returns to Edinburgh. I had such a great summer with Claire living at home for most of it and this last week of chaos with Chloé preparing for her return and visits with the boys. Now to put everything back together, stock up the fridge and finish the laundry.
HELLO CALENDAR | September is the annual start of my year. Not only is my birthday on the 4th but after years of school (mine and my kids) it just makes it make sense to me. Time to take stock of my dreams and desires and make time and space for them to become reality.
HELLO PHOTOS | August was full. Caden and I took trips to Bath + Glastonbury, UK to acclimatize to the time change – this was followed by a 10-day Baltic cruise; then a few days were spent in Cape Cod at the start of September. There are a hella lot of photos to sort through. Great month!
HELLO CHANGE | While away did I miss supervised oblique exercises? Not in the least. But I did miss how I feel after sessions with Jackie. The big plan was for me to manage my trip with as little pain and as much flexibility as possible – mission accomplished. Now to continue this journey toward good health and ease of movement. Why change? Well, sadly for me, (but AWESOME for her) Jackie has started a new studio! I will miss her 3x weekly visits but will be joining my local YMCA for Aquafit classes and Pickleball at the club when it starts in October. It’s time for me to get out of the basement. I will take all of the lessons I’ve learned from Jackie over the past couple of years and apply them to my new health journey.
HELLO FULL HARVEST MOON | In Pisces which means that now is the time to harness the power of the full moon in this creative sign by drawing a bath. As you cleanse, set an intention and take the time to shed any form of writer’s block or fear that may be holding you back from creating art, whatever that means to you. I for one know exactly what this means for me. Time to dust off the note pad!
HELLO MONDAY | You are my favourite: I love that you provide me with 52 fresh starts every year.
