Life does get crazy sometimes, doesn’t it. Or is it just me and do I make my life crazy?
Yeah definitely that too. It’s been a bit of a whirlwind around here, especially in my head. The busy season is fast approaching, so there isn’t a moments peace in my head. Ideas are swirling, random thoughts pop up, and list are written and rewritten.
I honestly love this time of the year. I love the end of the year business, the anticipation of things to come and the preparation for all the good times.
But as much as I love it I could do without the random sleepless nights, the worrying and the hurrying. And there was a lot of that going on this weekend. Missed one complete night of sleep on Friday. And I can’t even say what I was thinking about, nothing really but sleep wouldn’t let it catch itself.
And with all that planning and thinking and wheels turning you’d think my hands would be busy too. But no, so far all the planning and preparing only takes place in my head. I haven’t been able to actually get anything done. Hence the worrying of course, and the restlessness.
So today I rose early with my head filled with good intentions, and a notepad full of things to do.
I took one look outside and saw this gorgeous bleu sky and a wonderful sun shining and all my well laid plans were pushed aside.
I decided a scavenger hunt was on the menu for the day.
So of we went. Across the border just a few miles into Belgium, to this beautiful little piece of country side.
And I soaked it all in.
The sun streaking through the trees.
The colors of the leaves against that stark blue sky.
The reflections in the water.
The intimacy of a path between trees.
The openness of the meadows.
I sighed a lot, and took deep breaths.
I walked and stopped to take pictures.
relished every moment and made solemn vows to make more time to do this.
And when we finished of our day at this castle for a late lunch….
……. I decided that this Sunday couldn’t have been any more perfect.
And my holiday preparations will get done too….
……. They always do.
So how are you coping? Have the lists of things to do and presents to be bought been written? Are you actually preparing already. Or is your action mostly in your head too?
Do you hate or love the busy season?
Let’s talk holiday!!
