Fast Start, Now Slow

I started the morning with lots of activity.  That is, I started the morning by taking a 9am 90 minute warm yoga class with a friend.

We were two of only about 8 students who ventured out today.  The reason the class was small?  Well, it snowed overnight.  Probably close to six inches.  And it's still coming down.

But hey, in that room it was warm and cozy, and always, I finished the class relaxed and stretched out.

The first 15-20 minutes of every class is brutal.  My body is saying to me, "what the heck are we doing?"  And then it somehow relaxes and goes with it.  Yoga is the first form of exercise (other than maybe swimming) where my body has ever gotten past the "what the heck are we doing, it hurts" phase.

And now, it's snowy outside.

I was supposed to go to a party at a friend's house tonight, but haven't been able to sort out a way to make my way there and back again, so it's looking like it's going to be a quiet evening, cooking dinner at mom and dad's and hanging out.  I'll probably do a bit of homework today, maybe venture into some reading and writing.

I think we're going grocery shopping to pick up some necessities for the next week, but mostly my plan is for a super mellow day.  And I'm excited for that, a day of quiet rest.  Of thinking and praying, and maybe making a few decisions, but mostly just resting.  The perfect way to spend a very snowy Saturday.
