Last week, I wrote about a taste of living slow. It was just a taste. One bite really. Since then life has been nothing but slow living, but rather a whirlwind of activity.
The end of the school year is never a relaxing, easy going time.
There is much to do. Book talks and summer reading plans and cleaning and organize and completing paperwork and gift purchasing and whatever else comes my way ... maybe like book room planning?!?
Then throw in a family vacation planned for right after school is out for summer.
There is much to do. Packing and shopping and searching and washing and more packing and list making and wondering what I forgot to pack and grabbing and planning and packing probably more than we'll even need.
I'm tired already! Needless to say, I'm looking forward to our family vacation -- it just can't come too quickly! I'm not quite ready ...
But very soon I'll be ready for more of that living slow. Time to breathe ... on the beach, ocean waves, relaxing. And time away from all this busyness called life.
I. Can't. Wait. More tastes of living slow. I'm ready for a feast!
Until then ... I need to remember to "keep calm."
