Our walks have shifted to after 6:30 p.m. to avoid the full sun, I love this time of day because the birds are singing to each other and traffic on our little roads is minimal. The walk is quiet and calm, my husband and I talk about our day and plan out what we would like to accomplish this weekend.
I believe there will be a garden planted! We skipped last year because of the wedding and laziness. I regretted that decision all summer long. We had volunteer tomatoes and basil but it's not the same as tending purposeful plantings.
Since returning from Santa Barbara, I (we?) vowed to not eat out for a month - I don't know about you but eating out twice every single day for six days just destroys my body. Restaurants rely on "flavorings" from dubious sources that leave me feeling "blah". So I've been diligently plotting out menus and dishes.
Mainly we are eating a big salad for lunch every day if we are home. If he is working he takes a wrap. I am quite proud of myself for sticking to this purposeful habit. The fresh food at home tastes good and it feels good to know I know what is in my food!
I've returned to a comfortable rhythm each day, knitting a bit but not too much, reading a bit and getting tasks done around the house that were neglected while we were prepping for our trip. I love that my husband is on his summer schedule and he is around more.

I started up my yoga routine again, ah. I have modified some of the poses for comfort but I love how I feel afterwards which means it is good for me. I am celebrating this milestone every single morning when I engage in the poses. Life is good :)
