FULL day off 🙂
Started with breakfast and coffee and reading…the best! LOVING the homemade strawberry jam and the homemade strawberry muffins!!!! Re-reading the Hunger Games series…enjoying it just as much the third (??…maybe 4th??) time around.
Caught up on blogs and then we both tried on some clothes that we can probably use for the wedding in a few weeks. We’re both determined to not have to buy anything. Frugality for the win! The best part…while Kimm was trying on stuff she found two pairs of shorts that she tried on at the beginning of the year that were too tight on her and now are falling off her!!!! Just goes to show that she IS losing weight. I’m so incredibly happy for her. Because believe me, I KNOW, how hard it is to do.
Then lunch…baked potato and leftover bean salad. With frosted animal cookies for dessert!
And then we decided we should actually do something that we could cross off a list…the finance meeting. Lasted about 2 hours. But all caught up now. We spent the last little bit of it organizing a few things for our vacation…like we are going to be getting MASSAGES on our anniversary!!!! And doing a few wine tastings…trying new restaurants…new ice cream places…just making sure we can fit in as much as we can 🙂
Then dinner…homemade pizza!!!! SO SO SO GOOD. Followed by homemade strawberry ice cream on Oreo cones….SO SO SO GOOD.
We didn’t see much of our dog all day because…RAIN. Lots of it. I have to say, I’ll be happy to see a non-rainy, sunny day!
Our night ended with games…we played Phase 10 Dice and Five Crowns. Lots of fun!
Meditations from the Mat (Day 194)…
~~don’t let your practice become an obligation, another thing to cross off your to-do list
~~a fundamental principle of yoga is that it is to be educational…our entire lives are one big lesson…the time spent on the mat is for self-study
~~find that divine spark, the MAGIC, the BEAUTY of you…that is what you are studying…and the asana are our classroom
Things making me happy today: breakfast while reading, relaxing, non-rushed morning, seeing how happy Kimm was when she tried on her loose shorts!!!, game night
