This morning I managed to get up early, have a lime and water, meditate, jump on my rebounder, make a kale blueberry smoothie and read a bit of literature.
I feel great just because I got that little bit done.
My mother took advantage of it being her last day of freedom to sleep in and didn't get up until I poked her at 11:45. I had started to worry that she had passed away in her sleep. When she gets back to the retirement home she'll be nudged at 6:45 each morning so I was glad to see her sleeping in.
We drive her to Toronto tomorrow and I am not sure whether I will be able to post while I'm away but I'll try.
Lately my knees have been protesting when I squat down and try to get up so it's really about time I reconnected with my trusty, rusty rebounder. It is a wonderful way to get in shape with minimal effort. I want to work up to half an hour a day of jumping. If I can incorporate this practice into my life, I might just be around to piss my kids off for many years to come.
The meditation is essential in order for me to complete any goal I might aspire to. It really stills the mind and allows me to focus inward.
I have about one hundred unread books on my bookshelf. I can't wait to dive in and read for a couple of hours a day. I seem to stop reading when I am unsettled or unhappy. I am not unhappy right now but definitely at the end of a very unsettling time in my life.
Will check in soon. xox
