Just thought I'd pop in and say hello. I've been taking the word relaxation to a whole new level. I've cut my computer time down to about 1/4 of what it used to be. Forcing myself to not turn it on first thing in the morning is getting easier. When I do come on-line, I try to quickly attend to emails and then go cruising through my reader list to see how everyone is doing. Glad to know you are all fine.:)
I've been having afternoon tea with my neighbor Mrs. Howell. I've known her for many years as her daughter was our neighbor in our old home. My sons and her grandsons all grew up together so we have lots to talk about and I love sitting and chatting with her. We sit by her pool and gossip for about an hour before her/our afternoon nap. Yes, I've been taking a nap.
This morning I was in the rose garden having a bit of a walkabout when I began to notice the interior structure of these roses. Far away they look ordinary but up close it's like a symphony of petals, each one working with the next to create such beauty.
I've added 2 Yin yoga classes to my weekly schedule too. If you've never taken a Yin class I highly recommend. The part that sold me was that the whole class is either sitting or lying down. For instance in a 1 hr class you will hold maybe 4 poses. It sounds a heck of a lot easier than it is. It's about relaxing into the pose and letting go of expectations. The expectation of a typical yoga flow isn't there. It's about being still and quieting the mind. It's incredibly calming and somewhat emotional and I'm quite in love with it.
Ok, so what on earth have you guys been doing? Fill me in.
