Day Twelve of Twenty-One

What a beautiful day! May we have many more. I did a few loads of laundry when I woke up and hung them up outside. I love laundry hanging out on the line. (more Wii points!) Ate my usual breakfast with a cup of tea. Picked up the younger one from art class and did a bit of grocery shopping. Came home and right away I went downstairs. After 30 minutes of aerobics and yoga, (I lost another 0.5kg!) I ate a quick lunch of pb and j with a glass of water. I am finding that I am getting used to all of the yoga positions, even the 'downward facing dog!' I really like the 'sun salutation'. I do the sun salutation every morning when I get up. It gets the blood going. I am doing a lot of aerobics: the rhythm parade, rhythmic boxing (which really works up a sweat!) and kung-fu and steps. I think now that I am getting into the swing of things I am going to try to do 20 to 30 minutes of strength training three times a week.

After working out inside Hubby and I went outside and continued tidying the garden. It's still very wet so I am trying hard not to do much more than surface tidy so I do not compact the clay. Every year we add concrete sand to both the garden and the lawn and we are starting to see very good results. The concrete sand helps to break up the clay and it does not compact or disappear like adding earth does.

Dinner was a japanese stir fry with lots of veggies and a cup of mint green tea. I readied all of my things for work tomorrow and will now sit down with Hubby to enjoy some laps of Nascar. They are racing at Darlington and tempers are flying. Should be a good race!

Happy Mother's Day tomorrow everyone.


  1. Ha! I knew you'd be watching that!

    It was nice here too, albeit slightly cloudy. And then the thunder and lightening started. First good rain of the long as it does't get cold!

  2. It sounds like you had a pretty productive and relaxing day! Happy Mother's Day to you as well!
