my training is progressing nicely. Yoga again today, and some attention paid to diet over the last week.
I spent a wonderful afternoon in the kitchen, allowing my heart to choose ingredients. I made a lovely pot of greens and beef enough to last for three days. And I can wait patiently to try this winter pickle, with onions, yellow beet, and dried nettle. In a hot pepper brine reused from a friend’s pickle that I was saving.
There hasn’t been much stitching going on, but lots of play, lots of dance, and good company this week!
I spent some time on the balance board after that; it’s raining so hard, and sideways at that, I can’t conceive of bike riding but I have goals, yes I have goals. I know I am older than some, and a bit old to be discovering my inner athlete (and let me tell you that bones heal slower at 40 than 20, as I found out skateboarding a few months back…) I have mentioned proprioception before however, and I can’t shake that fascination. It’s in me deep.
So, training begins.
I am going to yoga tomorrow.
Finally, after much procrastination. I even bought a mat! And I had to make a bag for it tonight. Of course!
oh for a nice crisp picture…
Yeah, it’s flooding out in Skamokawa! here’s a photo and a post. Thanks Mark. Glad I’m not there!
I think I will start a new feature: the Daily Discovery. Today’s was clearly Parkour!
Blog as journal. Blog as organizational tool. Blog as archive. Blog as command center. Yes!
My favorite gift received this holiday season:
when what I wanted most was fiber and containers. Perfect!
Recent book acquisition: The Art of Embroidery by Françoise Tellier-Loumagne. It was while perusing this book that I decided to use my blog once more, as a sort of workbook. A place to continue documenting my journey through the world of fiber art. Perhaps it is winter weather keeping me inside, off my bike, stitching and slowly revisiting the internet.
I have everything to learn about composition!
