I have meditated in the past, on and off, mostly by doing focused breathing. When I began doing yoga along with my fitness routine (and mastering the side plank) I became more focused in my meditations. I began to understand the link between focused breathing and my body in ways I didn’t before.

Golden Girls is on Amazon Prime in Canada … and I watched the first three episodes last night. 🙂
I am not a numbers person. I have never been much of a math person. But today, I was inspired by some numbers.
The internet calculates things for us confused folk, hence, it was easy to lift the numerical values off the screen. All I have to do now is supplement them with my crafty words.

A bit later I realized it was actually a headache that was keeping me awake, probably coming from that stiff muscle in my neck.
By 2am I knew I was done.
Once upon a time many moons ago I remember asking someone why they carry the dog poop all the way home when they could just throw it in the receptacle at the park.

I wrote this post in 2018. It is out of date and a new post is being constructed for 2022.Continue reading “49 things about me 2018”
That’s the word that comes to mind when I think of my state of mind during summer vacation so far.
