Stoke Your Soul

Good morning!

I've calmed down since my last post...eeek.
I went on a mini-vacation Fri/Sat to visit one of my closest friends an hour and a half away. We met (at my current office) 6 years ago (or so). She recently took a job elsewhere and moved farther up the line/away from me :(

Friday night we ate at a yummy pizza place filled with hippies and families. The lively atmosphere, giant stone-oven, natural/organic ingredients and beers draws the crowd. We had a good talk over a sausage/mushroom/kalamata olive flatbread. My friend enjoyed an IPA and Magic Hat #9 (she'd never had MH before! I recommended that one from my drinking days that happened to take place mostly in VT). Saturday we hit some shops and a nail salon to get (much needed, in my case) pedicures. My current color? Boathouse: a bright, orangey/pink color sure to add some energy to these rainy days of late.

And now it's Sunday and I'm waking up with my coffee, boyfriend, and cat. What to do today? Organize? Cook? Library? I've done my share of shopping these past couple weekends. Though I need new clothes, especially as a new season falls upon us, I have started to feel a little loose when it comes to budgeting. Is it a stress outlet? Is it a by product of changing my environment and so wanting to really go head first into change?

Whatever it is, so be it...but how do I get back to center?
Meditation! This morning, as my bf goes off to church I will sit down, get quiet, and go inside! It's a bit gloomy outside, which may limit any sort of walking meditation I'd want to engage in today, so the eyes closed, legs crossed (or in my case, sitting on a yoga block) version will do!

Many blessings for your Sunday!
