Happy 2018 All. I send the most warmest of wishes to cyberspace to my family, friends, other earthlings, and out to the Cosmos. Wow! 2018….
I am inspired to get going on the Bucket List (and to clean my house) as time is clearly marching on at a rapid pace.
I have had such a lovely long weekend. Filled with quality time with my family, friends, and some **much** needed time on my yoga mat. I love my job as a Physical Therapist Assistant, but it bites into my Yoga Mode and all that that entails. I yearn to find a balance between my two worlds and be the best teacher/educator/clinician that I can be. I know this is possible, it just takes time and a willingness to work hard for my dreams to manifest. A cherry on the top of this dream sundae would be financially independence.
I plan to sit down and work on my 2018 Bucket List, and maybe to share it once I’ve given in some deep thought. But I also want to attack my closet for awhile, because I know many treasures lie within its confines. I’ve been threatening to do this for some time. I’ve been in purge mode for a few days now and I don’t want to lose my momentum!
But I’ve got some pictures I just have to share from Vivify this weekend. My husband and I have started practicing together, and I am ever so pleased! Baby steps have been made in duo yoga and I have high hopes for what we will learn as we develop trust and have fun with it. And I’ll have to stop being a chicken 🙂 🙂 🙂
And maybe, just maybe, I’ll take on my fears of Blitz the Monster….. This could the the Year of Adrenaline and Adventure!!!
We had the most lovely couple of days in Santa Fe. I tried to post the pictures but the casita we stayed at offered internet that moved at glacial speed. So here are the pictures.
If you look really close – I’m asana-ing under this charming purple tree – which was particularly striking when lit up at night.
We strolled the Plaza, which has absolutely incredible shops. I did score on a purchase of a belt of epic sparkly-ness for 50$. I just *Had* to have it and *MUST WEAR*. And marveled at this Church. I even had to peek in. The cathedral was amazing but I did not dare take a photo as the kiddos were preparing for their traditional Nativity Scene. Adorable kiddos.
We also snuck up to a frightening dragon ( 🙂 ). It was really neat. People come up with the most fantastic pieces.
We will definitely explore this very unique town that is not that far away from Rio Rancho. Sure wish it was a heck of a lot closer however. The commute of an hour does get cumbersome. It is an hour – so 2 hr of my day is spent on I-25. Not so sure about doing said commute and feel I should contemplate convenient options,,,,,,Which is a bummer as I love working at Therapy Solutions.
I am super bummed that I’ve put on some weight again. My commute is chewing up all my free time – and I’ve getting on my mat not nearly enough. I’m on my feet all day, which I like in a job but it isn’t an aerobic. I know a healthier lifestyle would get me back ship shape.
Although I’ve been driving to Santa Fe on the reg since I started working at Therapy Solutions. But I pretty much drive to work and then head home to Rio Rancho. So I know how to get the clinics, Meow Wolf, and Trader Joe’s.
But tonight is the TS holiday party and Harlan and I decided to take this as an opportunity to stay a couple of nights and to start to explore SF. It is a delightful little town and we are def going to check out the Plaza and some art galleries before the party. Hooray!
I am betting that I’ll be doing some yoga photography later today. 🙂
Happy What I call Trash Tuesday. (It reminds me to take out the garbage).
I need to clone myself. This isn’t in my skill set, but it sure would be nice. One of me would be a full time yoga teacher and the other a Physical Therapist Assistant. I can only hope that I can figure out to do both somehow, someway….
Very little time to take yoga pictures these days. I have GOT to figure out a way to change that. My yoga time is precious and I believe quite necessary for my overall happiness. But here are a few stolen moments the past few days….
And My Ode to my new Mermaid Socks…I would include them but my phone doesn’t seem to want to sync atm and I gotta amscray and get ready for work!
Again, Happy Trash Tuesday 🙂
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.
I cry with laugher with this guy. Last night it was watching Jon Stewart and SC spew water into each others ears. Man, I really needed it.
