Summer Intention List
Every single morning this week I did my yoga routine while babying my gimpy wrist (which is overall much much much better). It feels good to be back into my daily practice. Of course I've modified a few poses but that isn't a big deal for me. I am enjoying knowing that I am doing exercises that are good for my body and for my mind.
The wild roses are blooming this week and they seem to be abundant! On my daily walks there are many dead trees (some kind of tree borer) and yet the roses have climbed and decorated and revitalized the end of a tree's life - beautiful!
I also spied the first daisy bloom - a personal favorite
The beginning of June is so fresh with promise especially the start of summer. This summer I want to really be in a "summer frame of mind". My childhood summers were full of:
-fire fly catching
-endless book reading on the front porch swing with iced tea (no lemon)
-pick up games of soft ball with the neighborhood kids
-fresh fruits and vegetables, many from my father's garden
Today I'm not interested in catching fireflies nor am I feeling up to playing soft ball. However, I want to harness that care free feeling. So my summer intentions are thus:
-endless reading on my patio swing with iced tea
-planning out some new knitting projects that are light on the lap and my hands and lacy
-picnics!! and we take Frodo :)
-hikes at the state forests surrounding me and we take Frodo :)
-eating locally grown food AND from our personal wee garden
-photography with my big camera, I've become a little lazy...
-weekly trips to the local library
-farmer market visits
-learning more about watercolor art and doing it
