|A little Whine and Cheese ala Roxie|
I had a lovely weekend. Talia came in on Friday night and we had a great visit. I can't say I recommend wine as a pre-ride nutrient, however. The 7:00 am start time came awfully early when we were up gabbing until nearly midnight. It was just the three of us, Wendy, Talia and me, but we had a great ride and good breakfast afterward and scattered to the winds by 10:00 am. Hard to beat that!
The remainder of Saturday had me working hard at keeping the focus on myself and practicing good self-care. I mean, I knew it was bound to happen sooner or later and I don't even know when it started, as I didn't ask - but Bick is dating someone exclusively and has been for some time. I don't know what's the best scenario - someone who is "better" than me or "worse". Anyway, while not unexpected and not surprising, hearing it was a bit pinchy. So I slowed way down and just leaned in and felt all the emotions that came up.
Saturday evening, friends called me to go to dinner, which I didn't really feel up to, but I did agree to join them later to listen to some live music. Had a great time. Yesterday took me over to Pebbles' (Slater away this weekend getting his motorcycle license in prep for VN) and another one of the 90 minute warm yoga classes. Plus we went to a garden center and a posh consignment furniture place in her hood. Never know what's going to turn up there. We did some more trip planning, and are making plans to look like pin-cushions. Went out for a very posh brunch and then I made my way home. All things that are a part of my life for which I am grateful.
Headed out to walk the hills here in the 'Heights this morning. Beautiful, beautiful morning. Managed to trash pick a little something for the front porch - a container to set a plant in. So, Bonus.
Take good care of yourself. Be kind to others. Treat yourself lovingly.
