Oh hello Tuesday, it's time for virtual coffee! If we were meeting for coffee today I would want one of these ventilowfatmochahalfsweeteasywhips
because it's been a while and I have been disciplining myself to live cleaner and less extravagantly.
If we were meeting for coffee today I could bore you with lots of photos but instead I will share some colour.
and say that nature just does it better.
I would tell you about my boy's intuitive side and how he is using nature to call in spirit. He was working owl spirit pretty intensely on Friday night and Saturday we fell across this

If we were meeting for coffee today I would try hard to not freak out that it is August 9 and instead remind you (and me) that there are still three more weeks before Riley starts school. But I did have a long hard look at the school schedule and would tell you that out of the 18 weeks before the Christmas break, only 8 of those are full 5-day weeks - the other 10 weeks include some regular holidays and pedagogical days. And that the longest stretch of 5-day weeks is 3 weeks in a row, which occurs at the end of March. My, my.
If we were meeting for coffee today I would tell you I will be gone for much of this next week, on a road trip that looks like it includes (eeeeek!) meeting two fellow bloggers in person!
I would say that I feel like I am really living this season, despite spending a tidy sum in gas, I have frequently picked up and gone into nature and am learning to occasionally put my own needs first, even if for only short periods of time. I feel a slippery grasp on living with intention because that is the best I can do at the moment and it's helping me to get closer to knowing what, or who, I want to be when I grow up.
Then I would say let's go and see what Amy is talking about over at Lucky Number 13.
