quiet time

I've declared this week to be "Quiet Week." Meaning, we are hunkering down and resting and nesting. We're attending as few scheduled activities as possible. No trips to the chiropractor for me. I need to give my body time to rest, relax and recuperate.

I have four goals for this week (a very small number by my standards):

Finish 'H's fairy Halloween costume (made with a LOT of tulle, something I promise never to do again!).

Stuff and deliver the Halloween bags the kids made at a UU church party to the domestic violence shelter. The kids at the shelter often don't go trick or treating for security reasons so we're giving them some treats that will make them feel special.

Make a plan to deal with all the food in our house (we have a 2 week overlap for our summer and fall CSAs, not to mention it's "harvest time" and that means we have so much food in our house right now: beets, carrots, onions, garlic, turnips, radishes, lettuces, bok choy, cabbage, peppers, broccoli, cauliflower, herbs, potatoes, sweet potatoes, tomatoes). My goodness!

Rest (can I count that as an action item?)

Once I finish my goals (is it possible to finish resting?), I have other goals, such as:

plant some garlic (it's late, isn't it?)

put the garden to bed

find my winter clothing in the attic, so I can stop wearing short sleeve t-shirts every day

investigate yoga classes around town

Looks like I have a serious case of winter/cold weather nesting and resting, folks. I'm excited!
