My life, currently...

These days I am:

Reading "Yoga Anatomy" and "The Bhagavad Gita." Deep.

Practicing yoga. Yoga. Yoga.

Feeling strong and sore and tired and energized. I think my body is a bit confused these days.

Thinking. Thinking. Always thinking. About yoga philosophies, yoga poses, and what needs to be done at work and home in the midst of my yoga commitments.

Looking forward to finishing my yoga teacher training at the end of this year but knowing I'll want more when this phase is complete.

Settling in to this new routine I've signed myself up for. This is week number six (of 19) and for whatever reason the adjustment period has been slow for me. I think I wasn't really prepared for the time commitment of yoga teacher training. And while I absolutely love it, it feels like every little bit of my daily life and routine has shifted.

Blogging differently these days. My blog has had to take a back seat on my list of priorities.

Trying to not feel guilty for my lack of participation in blog land. I just haven't had time for blog reading and commenting.

Missing Douglas. It's hunting season and he's been away a lot, but he's coming home today. Hooray!!!

Cooking hardly anything these days and buying lots of frozen meals for Doug to have on evenings when I'm at yoga class.

Taking hardly any photos - partly because I'm busy and partly because I'm a little bored with the same ol' stuff to photograph.

Sewing here and there and getting close to finishing September's square for Fiona's Friendship Quilt Exchange.

Listening to "All About That Bass" by Meghan Trainor. Over and over and over.

Being super happy even though this blog post sounds like I'm a bit worn out.

Happy new week, everyone!

You're a third of the way through your class already! No wonder you're tired, but a good kind of tired I bet. It sounds as if you are getting a lot of benefit and knowledge from all you're doing.
Ps you're still blogging more often than I am and I have none of your reasons for being away from the computer!

Have a great week too!

We made the lasagne and it was as good as you'd said it would be. Thank you! The left overs are in the freezer and I'm looking forward to warming them up very soon. This one will be a regular through the winter I think

You are still more focused than I seem to be. I only work three days a week now and I can't seem to get anything accomplished.
Have a good week!

You are doing so well Deb. I am so impressed by all your reading and preparing and practicing for Yoga teaching. Don't feel guilty either for blog reading/posting/commenting. It is a joy when your post pops up in my reader regardless!

Karen said...

It almost always takes a lot of time and work to move forward in a new direction. You're doing a great job, and I'm very impressed! We'll always be glad to see you pop up in our readers, but do what you need to do. We'll still be here!

I am so excited for you, tired but happy is a very good place to be in life. I need to get more substance to my blogging. I have things to share but posting a photo or being part of a meme seem so easy to fall into. I enjoy anything you post whenever you can post ;)

Oh my goodness, All About That Bass. I've been listening to it a lot too and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the lyrics. But, you know, it's 'cause I got that boom boom!!! So proud of you for working so hard, Deb. One day maybe I can come to a class of yours. It would have to be whatever comes BEFORE beginner level. Ha ha. XOXOXOXOXOXO
