i started a 4 week yoga series last night at the yoga center. simply practicing yoga at the yoga center rather than at the gym makes it a calming, special experience... but the fact that this is a series focused on chakras makes it even more unique. it was an awesome 1.5 hr class of learning about 2 chakras, doing 2 different meditations, and some flow. ahh. i left feeling cozy and restored. i made a quick run to the grocery store, and then came home. miss j inspired me with her blog comment on my last salad post, so i whipped up a spinach salad topped with strawberries, plain goat cheese, and a few walnuts for omega-3s. topped with a dressing of olive oil, balsamic, agave nectar, and sea salt. YUM. i forgot (very briefly) how amazing goat cheese is. especially plain goat cheese. i've been on this blue cheese kick, and before that i was eating herbed goat cheese. i'm already looking forward to going home for lunch to recreate it. i also had some organic mac & cheese (yes, i know it looks like kraft), because well, on a damp night, what could be better?
this morning is another beautiful blue day in the boat. i love these gorgeous mornings, but i am getting sick of the afternoon storms that roll in right when i'm getting off work and ready to play outside. it's the hot air balloon rodeo in steamboat this weekend, so i saw about 8 balloons drifting along when i walked out of my apt this morning! this weekend i'm looking forward to seeing more balloons and enjoying an art festival called art in the park. no other real plans.
