just being...

(the state of my studio right now)
In the midst of unpacking and trying to get settled in, I am really trying to create huge pockets of time to ...just be. I can get very obsessive about things and last week, I was waking up at 5 a.m. every morning to unpack stuff before Tara woke up! Add to that waking up 2-3x in the middle of the night every time Tara started crying (she  is adjusting to sleeping in her nursery again) and I was ...pretty cranky! So now I am waaaaay more relaxed about the whole thing. It will all come together...whenever!
(Tara and I -today)
Tara and I have been enjoying the outdoors, reading, playing house and ...just lollygagging. Tim and I have been snuggling and watching movies and just...hanging out. It feels good to take it easy for a while, you know? There's always going to be stuff to do.
In the meantime..I have been chatting with a fellow Canadian (so nice!), discovered a few new amazing blogs here, here and here...and taking a gazillion pics of Tara. I am also reading the current issue of O magazine and it is...the best issue ever!! So full of inspiration and overflowing with creativity.
*Love these pages!!!
*These pics are stunning (and make me want to hop on a plane to India...today!!)
*loved listening to this interview with KRR!!!
Also.... February 4, 2011 is National Wear Red Day to promote Heart Health for Women. I hope that you will consider wearing red that day, even a scarf or mittens, to show your support.
Of course I still obsess and fluctuate between have to get everything done right away and...oh! whenever! So who knows what will happen:)
Happy weekend!

Soraya, just be is the best you can do!!! Love that.
I didn't know about National Wear Red Day being today, however, just by chance I wore a very red tank this morning to my workout class. Obviously I somehow knew...

Haha - I did not know about wear red day either, but as it turns out, I not only wore a red and while shirt, but it had a big heart on it! Lots of serendipity in my life lately!! Yes, the studio will happen - I speak from experience here! As you know, I had some huge delays also! One little step at a time. And as far as "justbe-ing", well I'm all over that!!

"just being" sounds real nice.
