It’s gray on this last day of January. It was also the last day of the Yoga with Adriene Move Challenge, and again today Wordle took me five guesses.
So I have a lot of emotions.
And with this end, I have to decide how I’m going forward with the yoga. I want to keep the daily practice, I think. I enjoy it, and it’s done a lot for me. Just from the fitness perspective I really like the strength and flexibility it imparts.
Spiritually I like the strength and flexibility it imparts.
I was definitely missing it in my life.
Still, all that said, I’m wondering how much coffee is too much coffee.
Right now, my thought is more than I’ve had, and less than I will have.
Anyway, that’s it for me today. Have a great Monday and a wonderful start to your week.
It’s another sunny January day, and another very cold one. It’s 0 degrees, and that’s F, not C.
My phone is full of spam calls today, must be something in the air, and my focus isn’t exactly focused.
Could be the retirement announcement from Supreme Court Justice Breyer.
The battles just keep coming.
So I guess what we have to do, like the penguins huddling against the Antarctic winds and snow, is take turns on the outside and find our opportunities to get a little break in the center warmth. We can’t always handle the howling gales by ourselves.
This doesn’t work for everything of course, especially our current personal challenges, and we all seem to have them right now. But still, we should find our opportunities to huddle with our fellow penguins where we can.
First things first. Since it’s Tuesday, here is my Mom Update, if you’re interested. If not, that’s also fine, there’s no obligation.
Today I’ve decided to go for some serious self-care. Well, maybe “decided” isn’t entirely accurate, it started accidentally with an extra-long workout, even before today’s yoga. And then that morphed into a leisurely shower.
A good breakfast.
And so on, until here I am with you, feeling about as good as I’m going to feel these days.
So it works.
And that’s my challenge to you today: do one thing, just one, that is purely self-care. And if you want to do more of them, do them, really do them. Make the time yours.
You deserve it.
And with that, I’m off to do something else nice for myself. Because why not? Have a great Tuesday.
Here we are, back at Friday, and today was Day 20 of the yoga challenge. I’m still really enjoying it, I’d like to keep daily yoga or nearly-daily yoga as a habit.
So I’ll be figuring out how I want to do that. There are a few subscription options I’m going to weigh. I might go back to Gaia, or I might try Adriene’s Find What Feels Good.
We’ll see at the end of January.
Besides that, there isn’t much to report. I finished my crochet basket, and I’m very happy with it, though not sure yet exactly how I’ll use it. Probably yarn.
The days are adrift lately, most of the time taken by trying to get updates about my mom or arrange video visits, with the rest of it trying to not think about updates about my mom or arranging video visits.
And that’s it for me for the week. Have a great Friday and a wonderful weekend.
It looked like snow earlier, with bright sun glazing the clouds, but the sunshine seems to have won. There’s a benefit to getting to the blog late, I guess.
And it is late, I had a grocery delivery today, my first since at least the summer. While the virus is still burning hot and we wait to be able to visit my mom in person, caution, caution, caution is the way for me.
Dangerous times mixed with stupidity are not my favorite.
Anyway, the groceries are put away, my update is done, and now I have some annoying tasks to knock out, one at a time, before we video visit with my mom.
And that’s it for me on this Tuesday (now) afternoon. Have a wonderful rest of your day.
