Burrowing my way to happiness …

I sleep with four blankets on my bed. Sometimes more. Some people would think they were being crushed to death or suffocated under the weight of all of it. Not me, I think it’s wonderful! As I laid in my bed at undead hours I decided I did not want to get up today. Nope. I even woke up before my alarm! But I came to the conclusion that my run and yoga could easily be pushed back until after I got everyone where they needed to be. Warmth and coziness seemed to prevail in importance over contorted poses and another cold tour through my neighborhood. Oh yeah, trust me it was the WAY better option. HA! I could feel the heaviness of my blankets this morning, but it wasn’t enough. I had to dig deeper into that bed of mine. I had to settle in completed immersed under all the dark, hot fluffiness. Ahhhhh.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you burrow your way to happiness!!!


Where you belong …

As loud as our house is during the day there is this amazing quiet that falls over it in the early mornings. Don’t get me wrong. I love the hustle and bustle of our house. The busyness is energizing. Having the sound of all four of my kids home is one of the best things I could ever hear. But this early morning calm is somehow reassuring to me. It is the sound of safety and tranquility. Coziness and warmth. Rest. Contentment. Family. Like everyone is where they should be and they feel it … and I love it.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you fell like you belong!!!

Freezing …

It has been crazy hot here lately. It usually doesn’t bother me at all. I honestly love the heat. So when I say I’ve had enough of it, you know that it has to be bad. This morning I checked my weather app and it said temperatures would be in the mid 70s. FINALLY a break from the heat. And it really was! Except at about 10:30 a.m. I remembered why I am an advocate for a year-round summer.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you don’t feel like you are freezing!!!

Me and my dramatic cold winter dead soul …

It seems like it went from May Gray to summer over night. The cool cloudy weather is gone and has been replaced with warm and wonderful sunlight! YIPPIE! I just want to roll around in it. Absorb it! Store it! Drink it! Hoard it! Sop it up like a sponge! And welcome it into my cold winter dead soul!

Good lordy, could you imagine if I lived somewhere where it actually got cold?!? I’d die.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you are just a little dramatic!!!

Arctic yoga …

Today was one of those summer days I live for. It was HOT and I loved it! When I left for the gym before 6 this morning it was already warm and muggy. I was so happy! I admit, I tolerate heat a whole lot better than
most people. I think it’s because I am so darn cold most of the rest of the year. Why yes, yes I do know I live in Southern California. But trust me, if it drops below 60 I am more than likely in my Uggs and gloves. No joke. But today I was soaking up and storing that heat like a reptile!

That is until I got to my evening yoga class … where the air condoning must have been set on NORTH POLE! Hot yoga … NO WAY! This was ARCTIC YOGA!

So much for my day of complete warmth … HUFF!

Well, I hope you all had a day where you didn’t think you were freezing to death!!!
