searching for the groove



Is anyone else having a hard time getting back to normal? I'm feeling a bit disjointed today and my groove is no where to be seen. Boy is home sick, my to-do list is long, and grows longer the more I put my mind to it. So, naturally, I just don't want to think. I want to hibernate by the fireplace, grab some needles to knit, read some more of my Murakami book, and hope the sky will let it snow. Is it avoidance, or just a need to rest and recover from a heavy week of food and family?

Both I am sure.

Regardless, I'll be happy with any size of accomplishment today, it's just that kind of day. Meanwhile, I leave you with a new favorite song by the Frightened Rabbit while I search for a groove to sink into:

Swim Until You Can't See Land by Frightened Rabbit on Grooveshark


ps.I hope friends in the States had a sweet and thoughtful Thanksgiving :). Being with family and friends in Florida was lovely, but home feels wonderful.

xoxo

  1. my advice - ignore the to-do list. take care of your boy and you. pick up those needles and open your book. :)

    I'm not even close to returning to normal. Swim until you can't see land - what I really wish I could do right now.

    glad you made it home safe, and hope your son is feeling much better soon. xo

  2. Time to rest and re-charge. The rest can wait. You will find your groove. It is wonderful to see how much you feel "at home" in your new home.

  3. Groove? What groove? There is no groove here either and I am not going to look for it! I am just going to go with the flow and let the day continue to unfold as it may.
    Hope your young man feels better soon and you get your snow [so envious!]

  4. I haven't had a long weekend, just a normal one but I still know exactly how you feel! I have no energy today, the sky is dark grey, it's been raining most of the day and - yes, my groove has completely disappeared too... Snuggle up and have a cosy cup of tea - unfortunately that's the best I can come up with. Have a groovy week ;-)

  7. Just BE! Listen to what you need to do, not the external demands. I know its hard sometimes, but you deserve it, all of those things will still be there tomorrow and the next day. Of course, this is me on vacation telling you this, I have a different perspective right now :). Great song! I hope that your son feels better soon. xo

  9. We didn't celebrate Thanksgiving in Canada this weekend, but I am feeling a little out of sorts today too. Hoping to get a few things done this evening before I turn in early.

  10. I am also having a hard time with getting into a groove and it would have been ok with me if we rolled right into Winter break. I had a sick girl home today and could have stayed under the wraps of closed curtains until the end of the week. Maybe tomorrow is a new day with restored energy for a new groove..

  11. like returning from a far off land... home often requires a settling in period.

    i on the other hand have dove into the deep end. Home has hugged me back tight!

  12. I'm totally out these days. sleeping is hard work. I have so many weird dreams that it takes me half the day to feel somewhat normal, even though I can barely remember what I've been dreaming about. I blame the full moon. back to normal hopefully soon...

  16. I've never felt normal so there's no going back to it for me!
    HAHAHAHAH.
    No, I do get what you mean though.
    Hope your kid is better soon. I have a sick one at home too.

  17. It feels so good to take time and decompress...my heart always longs for the quiet after all of the hurry and rush. I hope your week has been good to you and your groove has found you softened and rested. XO
