Can you believe it’s July? I’ve got my July To-Do list up here, and the Mid-Year Evaluation here, over on the Goals, Dreams, and Resolutions Site. Join in the conversation this month!

I’m also participating in Christmas in July. My day is July 18 — and you can win a critique as part of the festivities. There are great prizes, etc., all month — join in the fun.

I was on the Yoga Bliss high all day long from the Yoga on the Beach. Not a particularly productive day, but I was happy to Just Be.

Yeah, that means I didn’t mow the lawn! 😉

Next week, I will get up earlier and do my first 1K of the day well BEFORE I leave for class! Even if it means getting up at 5! 😉

This morning, I learned more of the value of yesterday’s class, as I applied it to my morning practice. Yes, my thighs and core are sore, but in the right way — but I could also connect the breath and adjust/correct some of the postures, and therefore get more out of them.

In general, a class is useless past the moment unless you apply what you do in it moving forward. I’m fortunate that I was able to do so.

After yoga, meditation, and watering the garden, I did a brisk, three mile walk, down the street, with a circuit through a nearby cemetery, and picking up the paper on the way back. I’m not quite up to running again (either physically or mentally), but the walk was great, especially in this beautiful weather.

I hope to have a decent day of writing and mowing ahead of me, which will be a good start to the holiday weekend.

Have a great one, everyone!

  1. The garden looks nice and summery. And it looks as though your entire well-being is improving – mind, body, spirit, environment, work … Everything.

  2. Can’t believe it’s July. How did that happen? Have a lovely writing day!

  3. Well, bliss is avoiding mowers in my opinion. 😉

    The roses are lovely. I need to get out and walk today. One more phone call…

  4. I know this is going to sound crazy, but I miss mowing our lawn. I’ve had to turn the duty over to hubs (who doesn’t do the greatest job) since the new allergy showed up this year.
    I hope you enjoy your weekend!

    • If it was flat, I wouldn’t mind as much; but with all the dips and flaws in the ground, there’s always something to get stuck on the blades! 😉
