I have been rather busy of late.

This fall some friends turned me on to the show Dexter and all I can say is how much My Love and I have enjoyed this series. We have just finished season 7. It is kinda sad as we will be starting the last season shortly. Its totally okay to be obsessed with a serial killer right!? This shirt was a Christmas gift from one of my friends….LOVING  IT!

Sporting the Dexter Love and showing off the thinner me.

!I became completely obsessed with crocheting.All of a sudden I noticed I had a stash of infinity scarves and cowls. Of which I would never wear. So I contacted a local organization http://heartsforthehomeless.org/ and donated the mentioned items in addition to a couple pair of fingerless mittens and hats. It felt amazing to be able to help in this small way.

I finally found the time and opportunity to try Yoga. It was a-w-e-s-o-m-e. I now want to incorporate it into my life. I am so looking forward to taking a workshop on Saturday. I have purchased my first mat and am looking forward to finding and enhancing my inner light. I am so thankful when I can shop/spend  with local small business. This studio just celebrated their 1st year in business. I would totally recommend them to anyone that asks:  http://www.yogaparkside.com/. I was able to attend some of their Winter Solstice Celebration. It was a definite learning and educating experience. I learned that I am not interested in kirtan. I am however more interested in Vinyasa Flow.

In November we celebrated our 20th Anniversary. We went on a road trip to http://www.rmsc.org/. We had an great time. It was so much fun exploring and letting the kid in ourselves out.

I am looking forward to what the future holds and all the new and fun experiences ahead of me. Speaking of which I was very fortunate this holiday season to have received gifts that feed my creative side. A friend gave me the gift of learning by giving me a book, yarn and a handitool so that I can learn to knit. How much fun is that going to be.

Recently I came to the realization that I miss how I use to read and write poetry. Well I am intending on changing that and will be sharing here when the mood strikes me. On that note:

Fire and Ice by Robert Frost:

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I’ve tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.
It is my goal to blog at least once a month….hopefully more but if not that is okay by me. I finally feel like I am living life!! it feels great!
