a break in the storm


Sometimes life gets so busy we forget
to stop and enjoy the moment.
Last weekend I stopped,
looked around,
listened to the sounds
of my new home,
smelled the scents of my new neighbourhood
and allowed myself to rest.



I highly recommend it. Not only does it allow one to pull oneself towards oneself a bit, it also apparently provides great photo opportunities :)

We still have no sign of when we'll be getting a phone line at home btw. Not that it'll matter for the next couple of weeks because on Saturday we leave for our bike trip around Europe. It still doesn't have a title, but maybe it'll become apparent while we're on the road. The route is all mapped out though, and the bike has been given the once-over, and Cinderella is off to her aunt for the duration tomorrow (yeah, right, I'm gonna leave a 15-year old by herself for 2 weeks!) so it's all systems go.

When I get back I promise tales of adventure and photos galore (whether you like it or not mwahahahaha!).

Right now though, it's time for me to 'clock in' here at work.

Everyone - party on. I might get to meet her... HA!

Terri said...

Buddess - haha birdathon haha! Oh, and if you're housesitting will you remember to water the plants please?

Anne - Oh there you are... I was beginning to wonder if you'd decided living with your parents was a good idea long-term, or you'd run off with a lamp or somthing. We'll see u in France, then? It'll be easy to spot us - we'll be the couple covered in 2-weeks worth of travel grime, riding the prettiest bike on the planet :)
