i. love. yoga.

Monday November 29
6:40ish p.m.
Yoga. Is. Amazing. 

It's raining tonight.
We started off at 5:20, and the class starts at 5:30.
"There better not be any guys there tonight." I told Anna this, because I left my hair up in the bun I've been wearing all day. Then it wouldn't get in my face and in my way, as Anna warned me.
There were 8-10 other people there. {there were only about 3 when Anna went for her first time last week.} And, well, there was one guy there--with his fiancee. And we were one of the last ones to arrive. Ah, well.
The room is large.
Arranged pleasing to the eye.
Pale wood floors stretch out the space and most likely glow when the sun is up. like in the picture above, taken from their site.
Deep breathing.
For an hour.
Some moves--like the balancing Warrior, that one was a killer.
There was one move that had you folded in half, hands touching your ankles, standing up. That made my feet numb-like and tingly.
Okay. I'm seriously starting to feel poetic. Er....eloquent.... er....creative-writingish. Writing mojo. Yoga gave it back to me for a moment there. Maybe this is a better idea than I thought... :)

I'm just trying to write some thoughts before I go down the the chaos of the main floor here at home.
I just got home from an hour of yoga with my sister, Anna. (check out my list of family and friends who are prominent in my life:)
My goodness.
I'm preparing myself for the rate of $12 per class.....can I pull that??
I absolutely loved it.
And the instructor lady was around 40, had dark hair, and a slight British accent.
Talk about lovely.
Ah, well.
I'm hungry and someone's vacuuming downstairs.
Life goes on.
It's those really lovely moments --at home or otherwise-- that you take in with a deep breath and cherish.
......The kitchen is a wreck, because the girls have taken a great interest in pasta making, and Caleb doesn't feel like doing dishes at all until later in the day......
........^^Light fixture the men put up today...... Ah, all the cleaning and organizing to do... hehe:)
Gosh, don't y'all feel so at home. Everyone has messes in their kitchen. Hah! I'll have you know, that by around 10pm, these counters were pretty darn beautiful. I was proud of Caleb. He made it spic-n-span. :)
So...I did, indeed, wear pajama bottoms to the yoga class. They happen to be ones Anna gave me for my birthday in February. [Don't judge; it's a hard life without your own camera.....um...I may have had to use my toe to press the clicker to take this picture with my webcam. hehe.]
Well, it's dinner time.
Pre-dinner salad. Don't do it all the time, but I ripped a ton of leaf lettuce earlier, so......
Lettuce, pecan bits, balsamic vinegar/olive oil/garlic dressing......

Taking a picture with your toe is a pretty darn good talent :)

I LOVE yoga too but I have been super lazy since the beginning of the summer and have only made it to the gym a few times, which is not okay! oh well, one of these days I will get back in the groove. :)

OK, you're going to have to teach me how to like yoga. Tony Horton tried teaching it to me but... meh. He's so. darn. repetitive. And I get bored easily, so that isn't a good combination.

That salad, however, sounds divine :)
