I have been wanting a puppy. My beagle mix rescue needs a little sister, I need a wholesome project. And so I went to the shelter today and adopted the first one my daughter and I looked at, she was so sweet~ and I was surprised how easy it was, especially after this was a long time in the planning. Well...Tiki isn't having any of her, she is not house trained, and seven hours later she finally passed out amid the rubble from her non-stop very bad manners. So far I'm just calling her Brat and I think I'm in love! ;)
Hanging on the wall
Love Your Yoga Wall???
Join us for the next Great Yoga wall Workshop!
~~~For Experienced Yogis only~~~
This workshop will challenge your faith in gravity! Take all of the major inversions with support of the wall~ Prepare to have both your spine and your crown chakra soft as a baby the rest of the night!
(It is recommended that you allow for dinner to settle:
we’ll definitely be hanging upside down!)
Yesterday, I taught a class on finding the quiet in the center of the storm. This is the main reason I do yoga, I simply want to live a peaceful life! But I need it for the injuries along my spine, too. I need it to help me open up my lungs to feed my body with more breath! I need it to tame the creative force that sometimes comes spiralling up and out of me! And to temper the frustration I feel at the injustices of the world. I'm so grateful for the practice that helps me in all of these things~ how does it help you?
Today I woke up at 8:50. Waking up late always used to mess up my schedule. Precovid I'd like to rise early. Getting a late start used to make me hit the floor running, like I had some minimum output to be met and I was already behind. Current circumstances have shifted my default settings. This week, I had to leave the house only once, for an orthodonty appointment, and I don't mind much. So today I woke up at 8:50, moseyed my walk with my dog, came back in to the smell of fresh coffee. Ken has always been a late sleeper. We are beginning to come into synch.
