Wednesday Catch-Up

I thoroughly enjoyed my days off!! My mom came to visit and we had a fabulous time--got pedicures, ate some great food, reconnected with some family (it was my aunt & uncle's 40th anniversary so it was us, their kids and spouses and my uncle's sister (who is also one of my mom's high-school friends)and her husband--it's very convoluted), slept, cleaned, gardened and did some yoga. *sigh* Absolutely wonderful and waaaaaaay too short.

Yoga tonight was awesome. I taught 20 minutes today and got the best compliment, "I felt like I was taking a yoga class from a very experienced teacher." WOW. Now that I've set the bar kinda high, guess I'd better start prepping for next week's hour-long class!

I made an amazing curry from Vive le Vegan by Dreena Burton--Sweet Curry Chickpea Casserole. OMIGOD, it's easy and by far one of the best veggie dishes I've ever made. Chickpeas, sweet potato, onion, coconut milk and spices. It rivals my African stew. YES. It's THAT good!

And because my mom found the cd's with my African photos on them (I had a big panic last week when I couldn't find them), I'll leave you with a few:

Royally Bad Hair Day

At the watering hole--there was a herd of giraffes who were trying to get water, but this kitty (and some friends) was hidden in the grass and every once in awhile would pop their head up just to let the giraffes know they weren't alone in the savannah!

Cool kitty shots! Your love of the feline spans the continents!

Was your pedi fabulous? Any recomendations for a great spot for a pedi in Calgary - I am still searching for a wonderful spot!
