floating

our whirl wind july with it's constant stream of visitors has come to a bittersweet end, and i'm pooped! so after scrubbing off the hand prints, swabbing the decks, fluffing, hoovering, and whipping off every slipcover adding them to the mountain of laundry, trying to set some order back in our humble abode, here i am lounging about in the pool ~ alone...how come i don't do this more often? probably because i'm not much of a water bug, but it's just what i needed, to be still, to get quiet, and just float. it felt strange at first, made me a bit agitated, guess i was so used to constant action. finally everything just melted away and i scanned my gardens, a hawk circled above the tall pines, birds chirping, my neighbor had some crazy disco with a strong bass playing, not loud ~ it was happy noise, and i admired my pedi ~ next time i'll go lighter, pinker...the best part though was planting creative seeds, ideas i haven't had time for lately, suddenly came flooding in. today i feel restored and ready to hit the studio!

hope you take a few minutes for yourself today -
xo, heidi
