My sister is the best!

My sister Kelly has made an incredible meditation blanket for Harlan’s birthday at my request.  I am amazed by her talent.  I am annoyed that now she is saying I can’t reimburse her for it.  I am going to pay her nonetheless, just saying.  If she doesn’t cash the check I will have to kick her ass.  Isn’t it amazing?  Go HAWKS! 🙂


ABQ here we come!

Leaving shortly for our trip, I’m packed and pacing.  Trips stress me out.  So I’m listening to 80’s music on Pandora.  Currently George Michael/Gotta Have Faith.  Seems appropriate so I’m sharing….

Had a great Power Class this morning with Ali – I worked out all the wiggles for our drive to Battle Ground to drop off the pups. Will stay overnight there and then fly out of Portland Airport in the morning.  I am so excited.

Here’s my shot for #healinghearts tomorrow – in advance, I know I’ll be busy tomorrow.


and a warm up shot


Day 4 of #healinghearts

Hey!  The pose of the day is Utkatasana/Fierce Pose.  Very awkward pose, if you do it properly you feel like you are about to fall on your butt. So I was being either slightly brave or quite silly for performing it on a stool.  Here you go. I would include the video but I can’t seem to figure out how to do that.  I need technical support.  So here are the stills.


On an unrelated note, I am working on my gratitude list for the day.  Here’s the first thing that jumps to mind.


1) I love this Christmas present purse from my husband. I don’t buy really nice items often, but I really lusted after this purse and my dear husband got it for me.  I carry it everywhere. I don’t know what I’d do without it.

2) Going to Ali’s Power Class in a few hours.  I woke up at 2, lucky I went to bed at 8 p.m. I guess!

3) Having the week off from work.  I will really miss teaching my classes but I’m eager for some sunshine.  Pretty sure I won’t miss Seattle fall/winter!  (watch me – i’ll miss it terribly!).

Off to ABQ tomorrow – I have some packing to do after I meditate.



It is almost ours!

Day 3 of #healinghearts

Happy Monday!  Had a fantastic weekend filled with yoga.  I’m actually quite glad that it is Monday – because that means Davin’s Power class at 6:15 a.m., then 6 hours at IDRI and I’m a free bird for a week!  Taking the rest of the week off for our trip to ABQ.  So excited to get the keys, spend some time there contemplating all that we need to do on that end.  Wow.

I have a lot of fun yoga pictures to share today.

Here is Day 3 of #healing hearts


And a bunch of selfies that i took yesterday when I should have been cleaning the house….

I am really pleased with my new phone, the camera seems to give a noticeably sharper image and works better in low light.  But I know the camera is supposed to be able to do some cool stuff and I want to learn more! I should make another one to one session at the Apple store – I have many iPHOTO questions.

Time to meditate. Namaste! 🙂

Baby baby where did our love go?

Is what I’m listening to at the moment.  Catchy song, makes me wanna snap my fingers but that interferes with typing .

is the song, I’m not at all sure about the history of this particular youtube choice.  I chose randomly from a plethora.

Here is Day 2 of #healinghearts


Need to meditate now.  Dogs will expect walk shortly I’m sure. Gotta clean the house this morning so I can indulge in a afternoon filled with yoga. 🙂

I melt with you

Is what I’m listening to as I pen this.  Great song.  Highly recommended.  But I’m just posting a few pictures before I zip off in Scarlett the Prius to meet my dear friend for a pedicure.  Getting ready for class tomorrow, toes gotta look good, lol.

I have had the best day so far, starting with a foggy walk with dogs this morning, great Yang class with Davin at 10, and sushi lunch with the Basenjis staring at me.  A little housework, but also some new accessories for my new iPHONE procured.  Yay!

On that note, I’m flying out the door.  🙂


It is a new month with a new IG challenge to take on.  I am still considering a second one, but they do take time and I’m pretty busy these days…..But I’ve just posted my Day 1 of #healinghearts…


Fun day ahead.  Right now is the all important coffee/blog/meditate/journal/to do list making time of the day.  So peaceful.  At 7 will walk dogs (they seem to have watches).  Yang at 10 a.m, which I’m really stoked about.  And hopefully lunch with a friend.  Pedicure.  More dog walking.  That is my idea of a perfect day 🙂  I just hope it doesn’t rain all day, the weather has been pretty pukey of late – Albuquerque’s sunshine is starting to sound really good!.

Have the BEST day possible.  🙂
