friday open thread cyber shala, this week on saturday! because I’m late….

I went to the beach this week!  WOOT.  That’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it.  Excuse for not posting here, and for not doing a damn bit of yoga.  I went whole hog and didn’t write (because the current novel is out to beta readers and I need a BREAK), didn’t do yoga, didn’t study kanji and Japanese, basically didn’t do anything but hang with the kids, walk on the beach, do a few canoe rides, and eat a ton of good food.

Just got back and it’s dive right into PARTY PREP for Luc’s NINE-YEARS-OLD birthday party, O.M.G.  I can not believe he is nine.  Nine is like, the last year of true childhood.  Don’t you think?  Ten is something else altogether, plus, double digits.  Nine is still a little boy….

In the last twenty-four hours I have cleaned the entire yurt (A-MAZING), made two giant pots of chilli, baked and frosted a cake, etc.  Sunday night I’m going to collapse with a big glass of wine.  Monday I’m returning to my life, writing, yoga, kanji, driving the kids to their various activities, blah blah.

SO.  This is the yoga thread where I DON’T TALK ABOUT YOGA.  Ha!  Except maybe how much I miss it.  I guess a break can be a good thing, if it makes you want to practice….

    Oooh! The beach sounds great. I love taking a break from all my stuff to do completely different fun stuff. My folks live in the boonies with no Internet and I love being there.

    Also a big round of applause for the wonder woman routine. Enjoy your wine this evening.

    I’m still having trouble getting back into a routine. I managed 2 practices this week. I’ve been doing so little practice it’s hard to get into each time.

    I did one longer one where I concentrated on doing easier things in more depth and one short practice where I did a bunch of hard things.

    Ahead of time I would have guessed that I would like the easier practice more but nope, the hard one was way more fun and the (admittedly shorter) time flew. I’m going to have to think about that.

      I know what you mean about the hard one being more inspiring! Sometimes a challenge is what gets the juices flowing. So ridiculous, the balancing of doing enough to keep it interesting but not doing so much that its exhausting and injury-making. I need a big dial I can turn to get it just right….
