The humidity FINALLY broke!!! I walked out of work today to a sunny, breezy, ABSOLUTELY beautiful day!!!
Work was busy again, but again, not crazy. I finished the night/morning with a Pyxis training class and then stayed to chat with my fellow co-night-supervisor to catch up on all the gossip!! I was home by about 10 am. A quick breakfast and chat with my sweetie and then I was off to bed for my “nap.” 🙂
Up by 4 pm. I tossed and turned a bit so I’m really hoping I’ll be able to take a nap tonight (not having high hopes since I’ve been unsuccessful for the past two nights!
Tacos for dinner. Funny story. I started making the meal…put the pan of water on to heat for the rice, turned the oven on for the shells, started cutting the lettuce and tomatoes…everything is coming together nicely…and then when the shells come out of the oven and I’m thinking of the next step (filling the shells!) I’m like…”DUH…I NEVER made the taco “meat”!!!!” Kimm and I were laughing hysterically!! So Kimm suggested making the tacos with black beans and so I did…and I’m SO GLAD I did…they were the bomb. SO tasty. I just rinsed off a can of black beans, added them into a pan with a splash of water and a sprinkle of taco seasoning and then cooked until the water had absorbed…done in less than five minutes and SO incredibly tasty!!! We finished the night off with a gelato cone 🙂
Relaxing after dinner…I read and Facebooked. Now the blog.
Plans for the rest of the evening…dishes, going through a few more books (DO YOU BRING ME JOY???), shower and nap. Last night on.
Looking forward to our plans for the weekend…pumpkins and mums!!!! FALL DECORATING here we come 🙂
Meditations from the Mat (Day 271)…
~~life force is ubiquitous and inexhaustible…nothing is impossible for those who have it
~~the root of pranayama is prana or life force…what we call a miracle is often simply the presence of a little extra prana
~~it is up to each of us to make proper use of the prana available to us…most of us have been unconsciously minimizing the amount of prana we channel into our lives because we are afraid of what we might do with all that life force if we had it…this is why surrender to goodness is so important…once we surrender, we can get on with the business of being MAGNIFICENT, trusting that we will be guided by a higher power along the way
~~as we practice pranayama we are learning to open up our energy channels
Things making me happy today: my work family, lack of humidity — a beautiful breezy day, black bean tacos, relaxing after dinner, watching Kimm read, hot showers!!
