Memorial Day 2017

Happy Memorial Day!

Well, my first full day back in Massachusetts…as usual it went by way too fast.

We were up by 8 am because Izzy was raring to go…not to poop though, just to get up ūüôā

Breakfast while reading.

Then some chores — unpacking, doing a load of darks, dishes.

Shower done, a quick snack, and then we headed out to Geissler’s and Stop and Shop.

When I got back I started on our Memorial Day treat — homemade chocolate chip cookies. ¬†The house smelled amazing.

Weather was rainy and drizzly, but we made do with our “indoor picnic” — tomato and basil burgers with cheese and lettuce, corn OFF the cob, roasted asparagus, Stateline potato chips and dip, chocolate chip cookies! ¬†All while enjoying Pearl Harbor, the movie — excellent. ¬†There was even some ice cream at the end too!

Now just finished the dishes, I’m writing my blog and I’m going to try to take a VERY SHORT little nap before heading back to work…boo!

Izzy update: she FINALLY pooped this afternoon!!! ¬†However, she has been fairly lethargic all day and her left eye is swollen and tearing…so we decided to stop the antibiotics, see how she is in the morning and if she is the same, call the vet and see if she needs to come in. ¬†I’m HOPING the eye will be better in the morning (maybe a reaction to the antibiotic, or maybe she got something in it??)

I’m REALLY crossing my fingers for a good night tonight at work. ¬†Not sure how well that will work as it IS a Monday.

Meditations from the Mat (Day 149)…

~~”Posture becomes firm and relaxed through control of the natural tendencies of the body, and through meditation on the infinite.” — Yoga Sutras

~~”make a friend of boredom” — boredom can be a foe to the enjoyment of practice

~~instead of reacting to it, or suppressing it, simply include it in the process

Things making me happy today: sleeping in my own bed, AC at night, unpacking, folding “freshly washed” clothes, making chocolate chip cookies, our “indoor picnic,” watching Pearl Harbor
