Holiday Preps

I have done very few.  My kiddos were always the inspiration to decorate (hell, Naomi was 100% in charge of the tree).  No kiddos coming to visit, so minimal decorations.  I’d love to have a big tree, but Lucien (Moose) would manage to topple it and eat every ornament on it in the blink of an eye.  We’ve gotten a couple of cute little trees embedded with LED lights that are sufficing quite nicely.

I miss blogging.  Procrastination; I really want to overhaul this site, sexy it up. Darn job that sucks my energy dry! (actually I am A.O.K. with my job.  It just takes up a lot of time!!!  But I would love to start focusing on Fusion of Yoga with Physical Therapy.  I need to get a whole lot more educated on how to effectively do so first! 🙂

I also miss getting on my mat on the reg.  I would probably just not practice asana at all these days if not for my classes.  At least I ever so now and then HAVE to take a few photos but I sure wish I’d get back into a semblance of a daily routine on my mat.

 

Sometimes you gotta get dirty

It was **so* beautiful in the yard yesterday, We have some landscaping but a large majority of our acre is sand and desert plants.  I love walking barefoot in the sand, but tend to shy away from performing asana in the sand.

1) Asana in sand is a lot harder than on a mat

2) I was resist getting sandy.

But it was the kind of day, and of course it is almost November and days like this are numbered.  🙂  So I simply HAD to play in the sand.  I first worked on various arm balances, fun, and was soon very sandy.  (Oh well ). Then I decided that maybe a wheel drop back would be a nice change of pace.  Heart opening in the sunshine, rather delirious that a work review that was supposed to day has been postponed for a week.  I dread review, I have been emotionally scarred in the past. I won’t point fingers, but I HATED THOSE FUCKING MEETINGS WITH A PARTICULAR MANAGER.

But back to being deliriously happy to have dodged a bullet, at least for a week.

Once I got dirty, I just went nuts and had a lot of fun. The dogs were with me, wondering why I do the things that I do.

And of course the Basenjis…

 

Happy Monday!

Weekends go so fast.  I’m pretty much healed from my wisdom teeth extractions last week and I was able to participate in my Yoga classes Friday thru Sunday.  I really live to teach my classes (apart from my family of course).  But this chick’s quads are SORE! I love that feeling. Maybe I’m weird that way, but bring it on! 🙂

Now I need to wrestle with my messed up Gmail account. Why must computers hate me so much?  Today’s picture is Mr Lucien, the puppy who decided to pee in the bedroom last night.  Good thing I love this critter as much as I do. I know he is trying.  He is pretty reliable now .But dude, it really sucks to be cleaning carpet at 1 a.m.
