Last week at this time I was just settling into the evening with my computer and cell phone, about to start my “twittering lessons” and expecting to get caught up on some blog reading. Not a very exciting Friday night program, but after a long week, I was quite happy just to have some time to myself.
Then the local earthquake hit at 9:00 pm and I lost my momentum. I shared about that HERE. It was a little stressful at the time, but one week later I’m enjoying a much lighter outlook and headed into the weekend intent on breathing lighter.
And that’s not been difficult.
It seems that everywhere I go I see something that makes me happy.
Spring has sprung. My garden is just starting to bloom, and every day a new color brightens my day.
And just outside my yoga class…
Isn’t this a picture of Southern California? Palm trees, blue skies, spring flowers and a Mission-inspired fountain.
The Silky Oaks mesmerize me this time of year. I parked the car to fully take in the beauty of the color heightened in the late afternoon sunshine. I love these trees.
Just yesterday our city offered a new Thursday night farmers’ market. It’s starting out small, testing public interest, but the crowd was robust for 5:00 pm on a Thursday night. I hope it succeeds!
And it’s a good thing we came home with some lovely fruit, because Jay had another little surprise for me today.
Knowing I was busy and we needed a few groceries, he volunteered to do a little shopping. Yogurt was on the shopping list.
I guess I failed to specify quantity. It’s the thought that counts. Yogurt parfaits anyone?
Then when I was almost sure I couldn’t possibly be any happier going into the weekend, Aimee sent me a link to a video she knew would complete my smile.
This video was shot at the university where I work. I wonder why no one asked me to participate?
I hope you’ll find time to relax and exhale the stress you might have carried this week. Be sure to breathe lighter along the way, and if you need to refocus on that aim, dance your way to happy.
