This morning I woke up to sunshine, blue skies, 50 degree temps and a bright sparkling river outside my living room window. We bought our Christmas tree this weekend so the house smells like the holidays and despite having been on hold with BofA for the past 30 minutes, life feels very cheerful and full. I’ve chosen optimism over last week’s pessimism. It was getting tiring feeling glum. I am incredibly affected by the state of the weather, can you tell? 🙂
Regardless, the weekend was very nice.
It started on Friday night with a special class with one of my favorite San Francisco yoga teachers, Les Leventhal. He was in town for a weekend of workshops. Friday’s class was so heartfelt and warm with a dynamic sequence that included lots of standing twists and arm balances, my favorite. Being in his class again made me really homesick for San Francisco and its yoga scene but as class went on I became more and more grateful for the chance to be homesick at all. If I’d never left home, I’d never have known how wonderful it is. Wow, I’m all sorts of PollyAnna today!
Saturday was snow filled. White flurries came floating down as I made my way to my Saturday morning classes. After teaching, Michael, Eli and I headed out for a walk and coffee. I must say having a proper winter jacket makes the cold much more manageable. Imagine that.
Saturday evening we picked up our Christmas tree.
Saturday night we met our friends, Kristy and Eric, for dinner at Cafe Sushi in Cambridge.
I had a slew of vegetable rolls.
First up, a piece of fennel and wasabi. Tasty.
Then an asparagus roll on the left. Best of the night.
And a roll with assorted pickled vegetables on the right which was okay but I probably wouldn’t order again.
After dinner we went to the Miracle of Science for a drink. They were playing old 90s R&B hits. The whole place was like a big bizarre dance party. The people watching was amazing. Below is a dark picture of Kristy and me.
There was lots of discussion about Kristy’s new hashtag #lifebetweentwofingers so naturally there are about 30 pictures like the below.
And one sweet kissing one of course.
I swear Eric was there too but I didn’t have a good pic and didn’t think he’d appreciate a blurry call out.
Sunday morning I woke up with a lovely sore throat. So,we ended up spending the majority of the day watching football on the couch while Michael played with his new Ipad and I drank lots of tea.
And that brings us back to this sunshine filled day.
Hope you can enjoy a dose of vitamin D as well!
