Caturday…with yoga!

We are spending the day today driving out to the piney woods of east Texas to have a holiday meal with my Great-Aunt-Mary-Jane.  Should be a good day overall…at least the out-of-the-car part.  Can’t say I’m too fond of hours in the car.

Unless I hang my head out the window like a dog.  That can be really fun!  Unless you suddenly encounter a large insect, hurtling through space then impacting your head like a brick.

But all the bugs in life cannot be avoided.  Thus a lesson in serenity from our feline friends…

Breathing in, come into all fours,  breathe out and we’ll meet in downward kitteh.

Remembering to scoop your tail and draw your shoulders down your back…

With mindfulness,  lower the top of your head…

At the end of practice, we all want this:

And nobody wants this:

Hope y’all have a most excellent and relaxed Caturday!

Caturday is Here Again!

At least this morning I am awake enough to spell.  I think.

Must be some nice city folks.

I’m off to yoga.  Enjoy your Caturday!

Taking Root

Having crossed our great state of Texas 6 times in the past 3 weeks, I’m feeling a bit beat up.  Maybe it’s residual motion sickness.  Whatever.

A few things have kept me going, besides the awesomness of my family and friends.  One of them is Bloggess.  Because I feel a bit like Copernicus looks.  And I need hugs, too.

Since I’m really not up to actually murdering anyone today, I’ll also share with you all the end of the Basil rooting experiment.  It’s still alive and looking good, by the way.  Go me!  😛

The water is that interesting shade of brown due to the seaweed solution which I had dumped into the plain tap water.  Seaweed stimulates cell growth, so I was trying to be kind to the little rootlet before manhandling it.  And then the dirty work!

Looks happy, right?  Especially with a dish of yummy pasta with meat sauce sneaking into the photo!  Life is a juggling act…on one foot when you have a tiny kitchen.  😀

I’ll try really hard to have something more foody tomorrow.  Honestly, I just couldn’t find the motivation to visit the kitchen today, other than to make coffee this morning!  Maybe it was that yoga class last night.

After missing so many classes from being out of town, I could barely walk to the kitchen this morning.  😦

I struggled on…the coffee was worth it!
