tumblingdays: (celebrate)
Despite my initial rough start, I actually ended up having a very nice weekend. My husband and I went to Nashville's Tomato Art Fest on Saturday, where we met up with friends, viewed local art work, listened to music, and ate fried green tomato BLTs. It was a good time.

Yesterday evening, we joined friends to celebrate C's graduation from college. C, like me, took the scenic route to a college degree. I know how hard it is to go back to school as a full-fledged adult. It feels like squeezing yourself back into a too-tight space. I'm proud of her for doing it. We stayed later than we intended, meeting new people and getting to know other people better. It was a lovely night.

This morning, I walked four miles. This is a personal best for me, and I am pretty darn proud of it! Shell and I took our time, so we took a full hour and an half to get through it, but I have never walked four miles before without stopping. Just two weeks, I walked my first formal 5K, and she and I are doing another one in October, but this was a new milestone, and I'm celebrating it.

My husband and I followed that up with a second graduation party this afternoon for another excellent friend. He just earned a masters degree. People who can keep going back to school impress me so much. I'm not much for classroom learning, and he, like my husband, is clearly a scholar. So cool.

We ended the evening playing a board game with friends. The game is based on the Battlestar Galactica tv series, which I never liked. I admit that I was prepared not to like it, because I didn't watch the show and I don't usually care for strategy games, but it was a really good time. I'd totally play again.

Now I'm at home and preparing for my week. I'm trying to live my new favorite quote:

"Please take responsibility for the energy you bring into this space."

So I'm spending a little time this evening contemplating the spaces I will inhabit this week and what energy I can contribute to them. It's a meaningful meditation at the beginning of the week.
