I got through most of my normal practice on Sunday. I’m still sticking with only Surya A to warm up, then standing poses, then Primary to Navasana. And no jumping, still. But it felt good, adding back the vinyasas. And Navasana, traditionally a pose that I’ve found tough, is really strong. I feel strong and calm at the end of my practice.
But today, I’ve taken a step back. It’s my ladies’ holiday right now which is a fantastic phrase, I think, though a little reminiscent of men not being sure to handle women bleeding. Moon time. Ladies’ holiday. On the rag. So many slangs and euphemisms. Either way, I haven’t been meditating and I think this “holiday” would be a perfect time to start up again. I’ve finally remembered my red beads.
I’m getting supplies to remake my moon time beads tomorrow, along with some Baltic amber to make other jewelry. Other than bracelets, for my ailing and unhappy right wrist, I’m also getting bloodstone, moonstone, and carnelian. The moonstone and amber, in particular, will make a lovely piece of jewelry. I think for my moon beads, I’ll just restring the ones I have with a real clasp, but I’ll have bloodstone, moonstone, and more carnelian if I feel like updating it a bit. It’s all a work in progress.
I’ve had a request for my soaked zucchini-walnut muffins, so I’ll post that recipe tomorrow. They were massively delicious and moist even a day or two old.
