So... the house smells like great pizza, food is imminent, AND THEN
Fee shows me my early birthday present (really early) from Amelia! A Nook. The Kindle is great, but you can't share books or check out library books with the Kindle...and you can with the Nook! I read too much to have to buy books, so I'm selective in the buying.
Books on quilting, crafting, yoga, history, psychology, popular science, etc., I'll read more than once and refer to frequently, and I am perfectly willing to purchase these. Fiction, however, is usually from the library or from publishers who send me Advanced Reader's Copies. Now I can share "borrow" books from Amelia and check out library books and read them on my New Nook! What a wonderful daughter!
A little more progress on dolls:
This morning's sadhana was a practice that emphasized inhalation. My morning practices (which I love) had become a bit too routine, and I was doing pretty much the same thing every morning. Adding a little variety for the last few mornings (emphasis on lower back, emphasis on scoliosis, and today, emphasis on lengthening inhalation) has been fun; especially since the last two night classes have been strenuous, doing the slow and easy morning routines feel especially good. I've been using Gary Kraftsow's practices for the past 3 days and enjoying the benefits.
