This morning is all about getting down to business and my agenda is packed with breakfast, coffee, budgeting, yoga and blogging all before I head to work. This mornings breakfast was a little unconventional. I wasn’t really feeling the oatmeal, cereal, toast, or grits so I decided to have leftover spaghetti for breakfast (so did the Hubz). We then sipped some coffee and I did yoga while the Hubz worked on a few things. Now it’s time to finish the coffee while blogging and budgeting!
I love that the Hubz is a coffee drinker now and that we can make a french press of coffee for the two of us in the mornings and share it while waking up and getting ready for the day. I however have been trying to be good and cut back on my coffee intake because it isn’t great to have too much of it but I have a cup or 2 a day and tons of water. My favorite Bodum french press (above) is in my OpenSky shop and is such a good deal too.
Oh and here is breakfast:
I finally have got myself back in the yoga groove again and am loving how the balance between my running and hiking and gentle yoga that helps to stretch my tight body. I have recently received a new yoga mat from Aurorae and I am really starting to like it. For me and I assume most people it takes a little time to get used to a new yoga mat and work it in but I am really starting to enjoy this one. I also love that each of the Aurorae mats are a different color which are meant to define your inner self; mine is pink which is Hope.
The qualities that the Hope (pink mat) define are intuitive, faithful, visionary, power of positive thought, energetic & healing. Additionally I really like that this mat is longer and thicker than some of my other mats which is great when I want a gentle practice or meditation. Lastly one of the great features of this mat is the focal point icon at the end of the mat to help with concentration. I find myself drawn to focusing there and it helps me balance and focus. Since I really like this mat I’ve decided to add it to my OpenSky shop hope you check it out!
Lastly don’t forget to let me know if you are interested in participating in the vegan care package swap. At this point there is no commitment I am just trying to get a feel for how many people are interested. You do not have to be vegan to participate in this swap however you do need to have a blog and unless paired with another non-vegan you will be expected to only include vegan items in your care package. These items can be store bought or homemade and can be anything from food to clothes to gadgets or basically anything you like and want to share with someone else. If you are interested please go here and leave a comment letting me know. Oh and you can be international so long as I have participants who want to ship internationally! In the next day or 2 I will be posting more information about what the swap entails and how to sign up.
