Rainy September Mornings
Today has been a lovely lazy day. Yoga time? check. Drawing time? check. Library trip? check. Muffin baking? check. Chatting with people I like? Check. Watching Agatha Christie films? check. I could laze about like this all week. Oy.
I’m not the only one who would laze about. I’d happily have company for the whole week long I think.
Last week I got myself a treat–I bought a new yoga mat. My old one was fine–with one regrettable fault of being dull. That was all there was to it and I wanted something that would tickle my toes every time I woke up and rolled it out. So I bought something of a color called amethyst. It’s very pretty and I like it quite a bit–I wouldn’t mind if it was thicker–that’s my only disappointment. But the color makes me smile and I feel more yoga-ness in me just thinking about the mat.
Friday I stopped by the Missouri Conservation center and asked for hiking maps. They were very helpful. Although I may dream of hiking the mountains I might as well enjoy all those places that are quite literally at my finger tips. After all if I don’t enjoy what I have why would I ever enjoy what I wish for? As it turns out there are a surprising amount of conservation areas and national forest areas that are pretty close that I haven’t actually explored at all. And so I have maps and information and I’m prepared for more hikes. I hope next week to hit the trails again–perhaps some place new? And I have also learned that the people at the Missouri conservation are quite helpful. Kudos Missouri.
And this is how it is–the view from Sunday.
