Yoga in Spudville

DavOd & Di did Yoga in Spudville today---did ya ever think??

It was interesting, to say the least......

As in our water aerobic class, we were the youngest there by at least 10 years. I'm not quite sure if that makes me feel young, or OLD for being in a "Silver Sneakers Yoga" class. (That was almost too much to admit!)

There was lots of heavy breathing (not the fun kind, either!), a few pretzel shapes, and much stretching into "tree" and "warrior" poses. I felt much more like a tree than a warrior when we were done, but I have hope.

I'm off tomorrow to buy some of those adorable Yoga pants--I'm sure my warrior pose would be much improved in a cuter outfit.

The instructor (a cute young thing) was great, and when we were all done she put her hands together and bowed slightly to us and said "namaste". I'm pretty sure that is Yoga-Speak for "Peace be with you; you may now go eat dessert" .

And so I did!

Sunny Day in Lacey!

Yesterday was a beautiful sunny day in Lacey--and not liquid sunshine, either! Pretty rare for February in the Seattle area.

After our late night Monday, we had a very late breakfast and then headed out to explore. We went into Olympia, it's a really neat small town. Lot's of interesting stores in the old downtown area. We saw the capitol, drove around and looked at some pretty old houses and then did some shopping. Wow--really good shopping here! Linda has all the good shops scoped out, of course. I was a good girl and didn't spend a dime!

I didn't take a single picture! I did have my camera along, but every time I would think about a picture, we'd get sidetracked and start yaking! I know that's hard to believe ;)

We skipped lunch, and had an early dinner at a brewhouse in Lacey. Great food and more fun conversation. Came home and sat and visited some more--and went to bed early about 9:30. Of course that meant that I'm up and wide awake at 4:30 this morning! Linda is still snoozing, I'm trying to be very quiet.

Today we plan on going to Gig Harbour, stroll around and maybe have lunch there. We plan to have dinner at a seafood restaurant on the waterfront. I'm hoping for cioppino--mmmmmmm!

I'll take the camera and try to get some pics today!
