Week in Review

Greetings from Lake Ontario in upstate New York. The pugs are snoring, chirping crickets can be heard through the open window, and I’m staring at this screen unable to sleep.

Possibly it’s the anticipation of being with pigs at Farm Sanctuary in a few hours? Possibly it’s the ongoing health issues? Possibly it’s perimenopause (god bless Google and my ongoing self-diagnosing)? Whatever it is, I slid out of bed and onto the floor to write for an hour or so until it passes.

This week was filled with client collaboration, time at Tim’s cabin in West Virginia, practicing yoga, teaching mindfulness, driving to NY (actually “riding” to NY sprawled out in the back seat with the pugs and pillows), editing Daybook 5.0, prepping for TranquiliT’s fall release, watching the Weiner documentary (recommend), taking Belle for her suture removal, recording another doga video, and many tiny moments in between.

It’s time to crawl back under the covers and hope the sleep fairy will come for a visit. One needs to be properly rested to pet rescued pigs, cows, and sheep. Especially piglet Cameron—I know where I’ll be lurking most of the day! I’ll be sure to share photos on Instagram so hop over today for an influx of beautiful rescued beings. Sweet dreams, dear ones. Bisous. x
