I can’t say this morning was particularly special. It did start with a beautiful sunrise, however, with oranges and yellows reflecting onto the white snow. It’s mornings like this that make me so glad to do my sun breaths on our landing, where i can look at our yard and see the sun come up these days.
Work was, well, like a job. I daydreamed too much with our trip on the horizon.
This evening i came home after going to the bank, and got right into chores – putting away laundry, finishing some packing, emptying the dishwasher and generally making sure things were completed. Then it was time for Bhakti yoga. Normally there is a break every few weeks in the yoga class i take through Park & Rec, however, our wonderful teacher offered to do a special class this week during our normal break to support the town food bank. It ended up being a particularly wonderful class, with 4 students. We were able to ask more questions and work on specific poses while also focusing on our spiritual selves and connections with others. I felt feeling taller and lighter.
Afterwards, there was more prep for the trip. I had to make hard boiled eggs, rice crispy treats and a loaf of bread (in the bread machine, thankfully!). It was hard to return to the manic do-do-do after such a peaceful class, so i didn’t, but was very efficient, moving with focus and determination. I was productive enough i was able to go out with Duncan for dinner even! How great!
There is laundry in the dryer now, and things to pack in the morning – apples, eggs, cream cheese, rice crispy bars – but things are generally done! Maybe it was the beer with dinner, but i feel relaxed and ready.
I likely won’t be posting the next few days because i won’t be at a computer (and hopefully will be busy having fun!). Look for more adventures next week!
