Mail!

Image
I got all kinds of good things in the mail today, I am still waiting on a book I ordered. So exciting to find a full mailbox with no bill!

Texture

Image
The walls have texture now. Next week I will get to add color, I guess I should pick a color for the trim.

War paint

Image
The bathroom is slowly coming along, tomorrow I will play with the texture paint. But for today I can feel good about the white walls that are ready for the next step of the process.

Sterling Sunday

One of my favorite Sterling pictures of all time, way back when we first brought him home, at our old apartment.

Meditation

Image
A lot of my posts are going to be about the 21 day yoga challenge I am doing. One part of the challenge is to meditate twice a day. This has been such a challenge for me, I have tries many times in my life to meditate and usually end up frustrated.

I have learned in the past couple of days, that it is very easy for me to meditate in the morning. The evenings are very, very difficult. I have a very difficult time winding down and quieting my mind in the evenings. Perhaps that is why I have such a hard time sleeping?

Here is a picture of my meditation block, sitting on the block helps me keep my spine long as I continue this journey.

Beautiful day outside

Image
Not the most interesting picture, but it is really gorgeous outside right now! If I wasn't so sore and tired I would take
Sterling for a walk.

Hopefully it will still be nice in the morning.

Fruit!

Image
I start a fruit cleanse on Thursday, here is hoping fruit still makes me smile after the three days.

Day one

Image
I signed up for a 21 day challenge. I am either crazy or smart but day one is over.

I start my fruit cleanse on Thursday wish me luck.

He appears that he has forgiven me. So nice to have my little cuddle bug.

You are never too old for stuffed animals!

Polar bears and Buca

Tonight was such a celebration! But we also got a chance to spend time at the zoo and see the polar bears be fed.

Hiking

Image
Adam and I went for an awesome three hour hike today. The only part that was terrible was the hike was supposed to be about an hour long. I think the trails need updated descriptions.

Mission accomplished

Image
We fit all our clothes in one carry one, granted we have another one for shoes and toiletries.

I hope this makes out trip a little easier than Boston, we just had so much stuff.

Sorry the pictures are out of order, the blogger app has a mind of its own.

Time to make a choice

Image
The walls are wallpaper free and the holes have been patched. Today I sanded the walls and washed them, finally they are ready to be primed!

First we have to chose a color, which blue will it be. Before I painted the squares I had a favorite, but now it has changed. This serves as a reminder that having an open mind is a good thing.

Which color do you like best?

I think this is the most time I have spent on a single bead.
