Hot, hot, hot. That describes our weather just about now.
We woke up, took Izzy out, then turned on the AC!
Breakfast first, then outside we headed…to plant our perennials!! Even though it was not the IDEAL day to do it (because, hello, it was HOT!), we didn’t want them to sit in the pots for too long because they were already drying out. So we did it…despite being very hot and sweating a lot, the flowers were planted — 9 pots of them. It took about 2 hours. Final result — AWESOME!!! I’m really, really hoping that they take and do well all summer, and then even more importantly, that they come up next spring!! We shall see.
A shower felt SO good after being outside. I could tell that I got some sun on my back and shoulders. And then we ate…leftovers from Father’s Day again. Love those simple meals.
Kimm did a load of whites and I did all the dishes. There were a bunch…lunch, breakfast, and popcorn stuff from last night. We finished at the same time.
And now we’re relaxing before watching a show with some popcorn at 7 pm. Then I’ll get a nap in before work. I’m on for three…
Meditations from the Mat (Day 171)…
~~”Any fact facing us is not as important as our attitude toward it, for that determines our success or failure.” — Norman Vincent Peale
~~good attitude, good results; bad attitude, bad results
~~practicing the asana, we have the opportunity to bring our internal and external attitudes into alignment
Things making me happy today: getting the perennials planted!! (and the outdoor decorations up), shower after being so hot, easy leftovers, napping on the couch
