Good morning! The sun is shining today and it is a glorious day. We had quite the mini heat wave since Wednesday and while I did walk the first day, poor Frodo thought it was too hot for him. So yesterday we stayed inside. I guess since he is approaching eight years old, he has his limits. I'm not a huge fan of heat waves so any excuse to sit inside and knit is fine by me.
For a mini health update, I am excited to tell you that I resumed my morning yoga routine and so far I've had no back issues. Thanks to the awesome physical therapist that gave me a take home back exercising program that I've faithfully completed for the past month. I feel stronger and much better. The yoga routine for now is gentle stretching and I'm extremely careful about being aware of my posture at all times.
I've missed doing yoga, for me it's a great stress releaser and it's one of the few areas of exercise that I feel empowered even with my RA limitations.
|our son is home this weekend visiting :)|
Yesterday I received a mother's day gift from my son, a new fabric covered moleskine notebook. This one will be for miscellaneous writing prompts as soon as I fill up my current red one (end of this month!). I'm thrilled about the new notebook and I love that he knows me.
Speaking of our son, completed his first year of the PhD program in Statistics at Penn State and just finished his Qualifying exams. He will receive his results sometime next week. He worked hard and I'm confident he passed. Can you believe that it's almost a year already? I can't. Time has to start slowing down soon.
So you all wanted to see that purse I mentioned earlier this week in a blog post. Well here you go - it is a Baggallini brand, I'm not sure of the style. I bought it discounted at a Marshals store. I love the bright yellow lining the best. The various pockets keep my stuff organized and tidy.
I appreciate a purse that is lightweight to begin with before I jam it with all of my "stuff". Carrying a heavy purse is burdensome when you are out and about all day long.
Well I'm off for some adventures with my husband and son today. I hope you are doing great and have a fun weekend planned. I appreciate your visiting and commenting on my posts. This blogging world is wonderful in uniting us together. Have a great weekend and I'll be posting in a few days :)
