Joyfully Aligned

I think I've finally clicked back into my creative space. Joyfully aligned. Happily editing photos, sipping coffee and watching kitties snooze in the sun. Yoga pants and cardigans. Pure comfort.
I did cardio and yoga stretches. It felt so gooood to exercise again. Afterwards, I juiced a cucumber, 2 carrots, an apple, a tomato and some ginger root and sipped it while sitting in the sun and gazing out into the yard. Zen.
I breathed deeply and soaked up the silence. A house so quiet I could hear the clock ticking.
I went foraging for leaves in the backyard and found a tiny treasure.
The kids arrived home on the bus shortly afterwards and we all sat around the kitchen table chatting. 'What did you do in school today?' I always ask them. They try to think of something to tell me, but they can never seem to remember what they did. Soon they're distracted by friends calling on them and they all disappear outside to play. I putter around in the kitchen trying to figure out what to make for supper. Tacos are always a hit. I wish it could be taco night every night :)
Evenings have been pretty cozy and quiet around here. The kids each snuggle up with a kitty and I tuck them into their beds. Bedtime seems to be getting easier the older they get. Or maybe it's just because they're completely exhausted by the time 8pm rolls around. Whatever the reason, I'm not complaining :)

My evenings are all mine to indulge in books & blogging, movies and eating cheesecake, bubblebaths and sips of wine. Or quite often, I find myself falling into bed shortly after the kids have been tucked in. The crisp night air combined with cozy flannel sheets and the idea of getting more than 8 hours of sleep is always so tempting :)
