Today's Transformations

I spent the morning getting my certifications for CPR and First Aid, then I spent a couple of hours at the salon getting my hair done, and then I came home and we cleaned out my car because we are going to look for another vehicle tomorrow.  It has been a rather busy day.

Rick is making me a cup of hot tea and Taz has stolen my work shoes and hid them because I went to work today.  She does that every day I work, I think she is trying to tell me something.

Again tonight we are under a freeze warning, but that is not stopping the blanket of pollen that is covering our area.  When the wind blows there are clouds of yellow dust that billow.  My white car has become pale yellow.  My eyes are itchy and bloodshot, spring is beautiful but she comes with a price.

Enjoy your weekend, find something to laugh about, and remember to be kind.   Oh yeah, just for grins I hung a "spring wreath" on my door today.  My transformations today, a new haircut, a spruced up door and certifications to help someone in trouble.

Reeling

Again I am working a Friday.  Tomorrow I have to my certification in CPR.  I so miss having my Fridays off, I am so spoiled.

A cold front moved in last night, so even though it was a beautiful day, the wind was cold.
This has been one of the most windy Marches I can remember.  This morning as we walked the dogs, the wind blew straight out of the north.

My day has been slammed, my head is reeling and it is time to go to bed. 
Goodnight, Sweet dreams

PS.  be kind tomorrow

Welcome Spring

First day of spring, full moon, 3rd Super Moon for 2019 and the last until 2020.  No wonder everyone has been so out of sorts.

Beautiful moon and Happy Spring!   Welcome Spring.

Balancing Chakras

Balancing chakras, that was our class today and by the way it was also a yin class.  We held the asanas for at least two minutes each, we moved through each of the seven chakras and at the end relaxed.  Some classes embrace chakra classes and love them, this one did today.  Others roll their eyes and tolerate.  I have had those kind as well.

This group loved the class so much that starting Thursday we will spend a class on each chakra in depth.  What are chakras you might ask.  They are energy meridians or points ( the word chakra means spinning wheel of light or energy).  Yoga recognizes seven points, starting at the tip of the tail bone going up the spine to the crown.  These points deal with everything from survival to spiritual connection .

The asanas help to balance and align the energy meridians to help bring physical and emotional health to the person.  We also use oils, colors, meditations, music, etc to help bring balance as well.
If you studied physics, then this energy work will make sense to you.

Moving slowly in this yin class helps to focus on the chakras and the issues you are dealing with.
I love teaching this class.

Rick says my hot tea is ready tonight.  So is the bed and so am I...ready for rest and sleep.
Goodnight, Sweet dreams

All Is Good

First let me let you all know Jordan is ok.  There are some digestive issues, but he is much much better today.  Thank you all for energy and love.

Rick and I both are exhausted tonight, Mondays are long work days for us and then throw in little sleep and lots of worry last night ...well you know.

Our nice cozy bed is beckoning, I hope your Monday has been a good one.  Make tomorrow even better, be kinder than you were today.
Goodnight, Sweet dreams

Good Luck

It's been a good day of sorts.  We had lunch to celebrate my sister's birthday with all her family.
I had put a brisket in the crock pot, and my brother Ricky and Deb and Sam and Jordan were coming for dinner.  Deb and Sam have had to take Jordan to the ER at Children's Hospital in Birmingham.
We think he might have a kidney stone.  His mom, his nana, his papa and most of the rest of my family have had them at some point in our lives.  I hope with all my heart genetics have not played a cruel joke on Jordan.  It's been a couple of hours, but I know things move slow in the ER.
Hoping for good news soon.
On our walk this morning we did find 4 leaf clovers.  I am passing the photo onto all of you for good luck as well.

If you don't mind, please send Jordan some good thoughts tonight.
Have a kind Monday.

Bee Rick

Our Saturday started at 5:30 am this morning.  Rick and our nephew Haven drove 20 miles south of here to get our bees.  By about 8:00 am the bees and their hives were settled in down in the orchard.

We soon left for Birmingham to see the acupuncturist.  I had not been in a couple of weeks and it was time to get a tune up.  Then we went car shopping.  We have a Honda, but to be honest I have missed having a larger vehicle.  My old Volvo, Ingrid was the perfect size.  She could haul all my yoga stuff and when we had a music gig she could haul all our equipment with room to spare.  When we load the Honda for a gig there is barely room for us.

We have been researching used autos for about a year.  So today, the search for a slightly worn Subaru Outback began.  I have a wish list and I think we will find the perfect vehicle soon.  I thought we had discovered it today, all the qualifications but one.  We want leather seats and this one had cloth.  We have found hauling all the stuff around that leather is so much more durable.  It's not like we have to have something tomorrow, so we are taking our time and making sure that we find what we like and can afford.

Tomorrow is another packed day.  Birthday lunch for my sister and then of course there is St. Patrick's Day.  Yes, I will be cooking corn beef, colcannon and Irish soda bread.  We will have a feast tomorrow night.

I made sure to take a photo of Rick in his Bee Keeper clothing today.  I think he looks so professional.  My suit is on its way.  Can't wait until our first batch of honey!
