I have always liked the number 27. Not sure why.
Hot yoga this morning, it was nice and hot. I was up early to pick up my vegetables from Bountiful Baskets Food Co-Op. I had vague thoughts about going to both hot yoga this morning and John Salisbury‘s extended ashtanga class this afternoon. But my body is telling me no- too much. So, I just did hot. I’m feeling a bit fatigued in some areas, lower back especially. I don’t think I would have enjoyed the many upward facing dog poses and forward folds in that class.
I am officially on vacation for the next 9 days, thank goodness! I have so many things I need to do in preparation for moving, but I also just need a break from work. I haven’t had a vacation in a long time, so this is overdue. My plans for the week are to get some of that move-prep done, cook, practice yoga, go to the gym, and get a little shopping in before the official start of the X-mas shopping season officially starts, at which point I will have to ban shopping. I am totally not into the whole X-mas celebration of capitalism extravaganza. I am irritated by X-mas music. Bah Humbug. I’m really not a holiday person in general.
This Thanksgiving, we are going out to dinner and I’m actually very excited about that. I mean, how could I not be when the menu sounds like this: Cartwright’s Sonoran Ranch House Thanksgiving menu (PDF). I’ll be having the vegetarian version, of course. But I know my boyfriend is excited about that turkey. Win/win!
