It's the Off Season

(For about 162 more days, then skiing will resume)

So, what have I been up to?

- cycling (so much fun, but such a sore ass!)
- meeting new people
- sushi dates with friends I haven't seen in far to long
- avoiding gluten like the plague
- hitting up the farmer's markets for great local food
- hitting my yoga mat and remembering how good it feels. Like coming home.
- saving my pennies (and loonies and toonies) for eye surgery. Two weeks from today, I won't need glasses or contacts any more!
- spring cleaning (OK, this was more my mom than me, but I'm reaping the benefits)
- reading some good books
- listening to some pee your pants funny podcasts
- trying to decide which season pass to buy next year
- longing for my new powder skis
- trying to find a good facial sunscreen. I'm not convinced there is one.
- being thankful for the lilacs blooming in my yard. They are my very favourite flower in the whole world. And I get to breathe them all in!
- I'm also thankful for Claritin. See above. =)

Quote of the Day: 2013-05-10

One of the yoga peeps I follow on FB made this comment this morning:

Gross over-generalization aside: have you ever noticed that narcissists flock to extreme asana like flies convene to poop?

My favourite response: 

There are days when I think legs up the wall is extreme asana, and I flock like hell to that shit.

Amen, sistah!

Excuse me, my phone is ringing.
