What a great weekend!

Let's just jump right in to the recap, shall we?
 

Perhaps the most exciting part of the weekend for me was that I taught my first official yoga class. I was so happy at the end when my friend Justin suggested we take a photo for social media. LOL. Ah - yoga friends are the best.


I taught yoga Saturday morning, then that afternoon I attended a 2-hour yin/yang flow yoga class set to the music of The Eagles and taught by one of my favorite teachers. It was so much fun! Phew - two hours of yoga was awesome for my body and I felt the results for the rest of the weekend. I love how yoga gives you sore muscles in places you didn't even know you had muscles. ;o)


Our Arizona weather was gorgeous - GORGEOUS - this weekend and I spent as much time as possible outside!


Saturday afternoon mandala drawing in the sunshine = bliss.


I played in the dirt a whole bunch this weekend too - tended to my little garden and also planted seeds in a couple of containers. I'm hoping we'll have a nice little crop of spinach and cilantro before it gets too hot around these parts.


Beautiful day, annoying pigeons on the fence. They wait for patio clearance so they can swoop in and scavenge for dog food bits. Ick - they make a big mess...


We thought about taking a drive on Sunday to see some wildflowers out in the desert, but when we got up yesterday morning neither of us wanted to mess with it. I texted Carrie with an impromptu invite for breakfast and she came over in her pajamas and ate with us. :o) It was SO awesome to just stay home for the day! I needed it in the worst way. I spent lots of time in the backyard, soaking up some sun and drawing another mandala...


This weekend was so good for my soul ~ from Friday night's date night to last night's sunset...


And now it's Monday morning.
There's yoga to practice, another cup of coffee to be had, and work awaiting...
Catch you on the flip side!
:o)

big congratulations on your first class as teacher - I'm so enjoying your adventure / journey. I love how the flowers in the first image are the same as in the mandala you are creating with pens - such connection

Well done on that class: the first of many!

That sunshine almost feels like it is doing me good all the way here.

Have a great week

Pigeons. Loathed the world over.

Yay! One class down! We also had awesome weather and I took full advantage of it and was as lazy as one can possibly be. Geese are the problem birds around our house, I think they followed me when I moved.

Our weather here in Nashville has finally turned for the better. It seems like it's been forever since we've been able to enjoy the outdoors. For me that's just sitting in the porch swing!
