April has flown by! Work is starting to get busy again gearing up for summer which is craziness for us. I had a few posts planned but time got away from me. Life happens and I have enjoyed every second of it!
I have a baby announcement for this month!
Jacob Patrick was born on April 16th to our step brother and wife. I have not met the little guy yet but when I do, there will be pictures galore! This one was taken from my MIL’s IPad.
I have owned my Mindful Yoga Wheel for a month now and am slowly learning ways to use it. One of my yoga challenges this month is all about using props ( Straps, blocks, wheels…). This month of poses has helped me refocus and go deeper into my practice. Sometimes I feel stuck after doing the same poses and don’t feel progression in them. Typically, I stop doing them for a while and try new things… then I lose all that work. This is where the wheel and other props comes in. It is helping me find new ways to do “old” postures.
Spring is finally here! I love how everything has that new, bright green look to it. My allergies are not liking the pollen too much but it’s not a bother when I can look at the pretty trees in bloom!
These pictures were taken on Saturday. Sunday turned out to be a bright and sunny day. We managed to get out of the house somewhat early so we started off with a walk by the lake.
By 11:00AM the park was packed with runners, families on bikes, race teams and people in boats fishing. There was even a local photographer set up with props taking Mother’s Day photos. The little kids all dressed up in their fancy dresses and bow ties were adorable! It certainly was a good day for people watching.
One last thing I am happy about are my new sunglasses! This is my first pair of prescription sunnies. I have always had clip-ons or transition lenses but wanted a larger pair that actually blocks the sun. These are working out better then I ever imagined! I wish I had done this years ago.
So tell me….
What are you doing to enjoy this amazing spring weather? I know all you runners are in your glory! Am I right?
