It was hard but I got myself up in just enough time to go to a 9:00 am yoga class. To the early birds of the world I'm sure this sounds pathetic but for me, when the weekend hits, it's all about catching up on sleep. Even right now I am contemplating a nap (LOL). Anyway... it was so beautiful outdoors when I stepped out to go to yoga that I couldn't help but say, "Good morning sun, it's good to be alive." I even made sure no one was looking and then spread my arms out into a sun salutation. Sometimes I even crack myself up.
I had a great yoga practice today at the studio where I teach. The owner is turning into my new favorite teacher so it was worth it to get up early and take her class.
When I got home, the day was even nicer and my husband was busy turning all the dirt in the yard so he could lay sod. Amazingly, he had the whole yard ready by about noon and now he is just finishing up. It looks great. I made my own small contribution by weeding, sweeping the pathways around the yard and cleaning up debris. I actually also helped carry the sod off the truck and I imagine that's why a nap is now creeping up on me. Either way, it was great to get outdoors, smell the fresh earth and enjoy the advent of spring.
Today I am grateful for the return of spring.
