Everyone here has been exhausted all week. I think we all got our fill of sleep last night. For which I am grateful. Time to start a new day. The sun is out even with a lot of clouds in the sky. This will make a big difference for me. I hope to try to focus on my writing again today. The pups have been so patient with me.
Seeing the birds come out remind me that I need to put out more bird seed after all the snow we got last night. Maybe a foot or so. Not much for humans but it makes foraging a bit more difficult for the local critters.
Rereading this it sounds disjointed. Coffee has not reached full capacity yet and the brain is still not up to operating temperature. Yesterday I pulled out a DVD that Mom had given me years ago. It is called Home Spa. It has three discs. One is a DVD of Pilates and yoga while the other two are sound CDs (a forest as a storm rolls through on one and being on a beach listening to the waves and gulls is the other). I did part of the warm up on the DVD. I realized that I was sore from all the work I had been doing on my own, both cleaning out cars at the lot and the random exercises I do. The cool thing was it gave me hope. I remembered enjoying my yoga practice when I did it on a regular basis. I may try that again. Even if it is just doing a few stretches here and there.
I try to do things during the winter to keep me active and thus happy. If find that if I feel like I have somehow taken care of myself and I think I look good (yes I do care even though many think don’t) I feel better mentally as well as physically. Yoga is usually my go to since it really doesn’t require anything. Well my belly dancing doesn’t either but that is more of a routine whereas yoga can be done wherever and whenever.
I should probably get myself moving. The coffee is almost gone and I may sneak out and take a few photos of the sun and snow (is it Spring yet?!). Thanks for reading! I hope you have a great day!
