In Holland, the kids had their spring break last week and in California, their break starts now. I love having a break in our routine and welcome change and then I like to go back to the structure and appreciate when school starts up again and we get back to “normal” (whatever that is!).
After dropping the kids off at school, I came back home and went to yoga again. It’s nice to see familiar faces, learn a little Dutch, and stretch and feel grounded again. One lady in class was probably in her 70s and I was so inspired watching her do down dog.
After yoga, I went to the dreaded IKEA for a 2 hour tour! I was in search of patio furniture and couldn’t decide. We had vouchers from spending money there earlier this year and they were redeemable now. I hate leaving money on the table and didn’t want them to expire. I finally walked out with some chairs and benches, cushions and covers, decorations and a little storage locker to keep the cushions dry. Now our back patio is almost ready for spring and summer! I can’t wait. We got a little teaser today with the sun shining until 8:00 pm, but it still is very cold. I tried wearing flip flops outside but it’s not yet that kinda weather!
For my friends back home, enjoy the break, and for my friends here, I can’t wait to catch up and hear about all your adventures. Have a good week! – A.
