Yesterday was a gorgeous day. I enjoyed my bus ride, even taking the longer walk home just to be outside a bit longer to enjoy the mid-70s temps and sunshine. Sunshine is definitely good for what ails ya.
Yoga yesterday was awesome. These sessions of classes have a new yoga instructor and she's pretty tough. Yesterday's class was pretty intense, but was ultimately so relaxing. There's nothing like a good yoga session to help me feel good in the skin that I'm in.
Spent some time in the kitchen last night and did some real cooking. I've mostly been doing "assemblying" and not much creating of anything with more than just a couple of ingredients. Last night I prepared some okra and tomatoes and enjoyed the whole prep experience. Chopping can be therapeutic. I followed it up with some recovery reading/literature/journaling.
Today I've got a spin class and I plan to follow up with some lifting this evening. I've decided to take a break from the scale for a while, but I am wearing a pair of slacks that in order to wear, things have to be dead on. So there is that.
I've got a shopping day planned with a friend on Saturday. There's an etsy-styled craft show going on close to home, along with an antique show. She's asked me to be the brakes for her shopping bobsled team and I'm happy to oblige. I'm enjoying the company of the girls.
As for Bick, I'm aware of the odds, but remain hopeful. I'm grateful that he's making his first step. I want him to be at peace. I wished him well. This is something he must do on his own.
I've got a long holiday weekend coming up and am thinking of taking a getaway. My pattern would be to stick close to home. My patterns have pretty much failed me in the past. So, I'll be thinking about what and where sounds interesting. Plans, Trains or Automobiles?
Take good care of yourself. Be kind to others. Wish them the best.
