I was going to write one super long post, but then I started getting overwhelmed thinking about it. There is really no need for that, so here are just a few things for now. I've been in a surprisingly good mood despite all the rain and cold weather returning to Boston. I took out my winter coat again and I've cranked up the heat. It's been in the 40's. But I don't care! Maybe it's the subway yoga?
Here's a picture that I took from inside the train yesterday. I was kind of sleepy, but it was late and I was able to get a seat. I closed my eyes and focused on my breath, like in yoga class. When I can't get a seat, often I won't hold onto the pole and I'll see how well I can balance. Usually I do pretty well. I'm not doing tree poses or anything, although I guess I am sort of doing a mountain pose. These subway poses are becoming part of my yoga practice, although I didn't realize it before. I've also been catching up on back issues of Yoga Journal, so maybe that is why I suddenly started to think of it that way.
As you can tell from my Food Porn links, I've been reading Clotilde Dusoulier's blog Chocolate & Zucchini for some time now. Well, I just bought her book! So far I love it and cannot wait to try out some more of her recipes! She is definitely an inspiration. I love her cooking, her pictures, and the way she writes. Food isn't just about the ingredients, it's about the stories and how it fits into our lives. She gets it and from what I've read of the book so far, I'm just as captivated by the book as I've been by her blog.
And something else made me all smiles and happy this week. I did my first blog exchange! And with one of my favorite bloggers, Carol Gillot of Paris Breakfasts! In this post here, Carol expressed her love for teacups. She proposed a trade of a teacup for one of her beautiful water colors. Here is a picture of my teacup. I sent it to Carol and this week I got my water color! What a week!
