I made it through my first night on with nothing more than a few glitches. There is always something happening to make the night “interesting.”
I was happy to leave and head home. Kimm’s plan was to go to her parent’s house today to have her dad check our taxes. So I went to bed and slept the day away.
When I woke up, the ground was wet…it had rained off and on during the day.
Homemade pizza for dinner and a new show…The West Wing. I’m not sure if I like it yet. I’ll have to give it a few more episodes.
After dinner I did the dishes, cleaned the tub, did an arm workout, took a shower.
Now I’m just resting a small bit before heading in for 10 pm.
It’s been raining pretty steadily since after dinner. Poor Izzy…she’s so freaked out…she just does NOT like rain. I like hearing it fall though. I just hope it slows down when it’s time for me to leave for work!
Only tonight and then two off!
Meditations from the Mat (Day 56)…
~~most of us have had our material wants gratified many times over
~~behind the impulse to find a solution outside ourselves (more, more, more stuff) is the pain of being lost
~~the aim of yoga is to help you find your way back home
~~aparigraha is about recognizing our fears and letting them go
Things making me happy today: unwinding on the drive home from work, mild weather, the sound of rain falling outside, clean tub, homemade pizza
