Snippets

Just stepped in the door from work at the bookstore to a quiet house, following a week of hosting our friends from Ontario. I miss them and their squishy, beautiful baby girl already. Abby helps fill in the quiet space now that they've left, but right now, she naps. So I write, (and sip Ovaltine).
Finding myself free of hostessing duties, I am re-committing to daily yoga, starting tonight. I can feel my back complaining after two weeks of no yoga. Lazy is definitely a feeling, for me. So given the monumental task my body has ahead of it for the next while, I am sticking to my plans to do daily yoga, strengthen my back muscles, and center my focus.
I also borrowed a copy of Michael Pollan's In Defense of Food to read. It's been on my list awhile and seems right up my alley with the cover tag line: "Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants."
I pulled all my garden's annuals as the nightly frost and below-zero temps had begun turning them into brown, dried mush. The grocery store is full of local beets, carrots, potatoes and cabbage. We attended the farmer's market annual fall harvest yesterday. Fall is here and I am ready to welcome is peace, calm and beauty. It really is amazing to look out my back window and see the spectrum of fall colours across the mountains. The cool air gives me reason to wear a scarf, and my whole world feels more cozy.
Now, I'm going to continue my luxurious quiet by checking out www.girlsgonechild.net, this awesome blog I've poked through about a deliciously offbeat mama who just delivered twins. Exciting!
