I can't let a month slip by without a single post. I think the blog would collapse into a black hole.
So what have I been doing? Well, I've begun teaching yoga classes, three so far. The first was canceled due to snow. And tonight, on the last day of March, it was canceled again...due to snow. I am more unhappy about the snow on March 31 than the cancellation...though that isn't thrilling me, I'd rather be safe. Given that I watched a car stall out trying to get up our hill I think the cancellation was wise.
So, the happy making stuff is we have reclaimed the extra bedroom. Diana moved out back in August but Calypso claimed that room for a period of time until we could paint her room. We had stripped the wall paper only about a decade ago. One must not rush into such things as painting walls. Anyway, we finally painted her room so she moved back into it and we reclaimed the last bedroom.
Mr. Lime declared an intended use for it and I may have mentioned I thought it would be nice to have dedicated yoga space because nothing harshes a good yoga vibe like having someone try to step over you while in lizard pose, or stoop under you to ask a question while in downward facing dog pose. He said, as long as I moved all the books out of the den and into this room I could also use it for yoga space. so that also meant I'd finally get all my books out of boxes and back on shelves where they belong. Win/win! Although it was going to require a hard weeding of the book collection to fit them into the new space. This was also a job I wanted to happen so painful as it was I was glad for the motivation to get it done. Here are the results with one shelf yet to be built and filled on the floor. I nearly halved the collection. I have since gone out and purchased six more books but no one should be stunned by this.
I began referring to the room as the yogabrary. It made me very happy. I had lots of space to move. No one was walking in on me or over me or around me. My books we out of boxes. All was well. Then I came home after a particularly aggravating day and had more happy making when I discovered this sign on the door....
....which flips to this when I want to be alone. Mr. Lime gets it. One day I was so stressed several of his jokes went right over my head. He patted me on the hand and said, "It's ok dear, go breathe and do your yoga stuff."
So I did...
It was very relaxing.
