Weekly Update

My House is Full

So, this happened, these two kids came home!

Elliot and his lovely girlfriend Jenny have been traveling around Southeast Asia (in particular, Thailand and Indonesia) for 8 months…well because they can. We spoke often while they were away but it’s always better to have them in the flesh. We picked them up from JFK and the laughter, endless making of food and laundry line began and I could not be happier!

We have been babysitting Jenny’s dog, Lulu, for 8 months while they were away.  This sweet girl.

She was so happy to see her mommy at the airport. And she showed her love by pooping and throwing up on Jenny on the way home!


Since they have been home there has been a lot of this...

This is a crazy week where I am teaching 10 yoga classes - my most to date! Eight classes for children and two adult classes. I am both excited and overwhelmed by the prospect.  One thing I am noticing is that it is hard to get to a yoga class for my own mental health benefit.  I know this is a common problem for yoga teachers as the week is consumed with class planning and teaching.  I am trying to get out of my comfort zone and go to classes at other studios who have classes at odd times but that fit my schedule.  This is a little daunting for me as I am not known for doing well going into a room with a whole load of people I do not know, but I am just going to put my big girl panties on and deal with it.

I am also in the final week of teaching a BSN (nursing class) which is always crazy because I have to grade super long final projects and make sure my grade book is up to date.

It's a bit chaotic, but all really good stuff with a house full of kids and dogs, belly laughs and joy. 

I wish the same for you!

My Week in Photos

Curves & Carrots Part II Headers (7).png

Sometimes I get writers block and so I am resorting to that adage that a picture tells a thousand words.

So here is my life in pictures the last couple of weeks.


Spring finally happened, I started to plant, a favorite of mine. I love designing my deck with a theme of colors, feeding and nurturing my plants throughout the growing season to keep it looking wonderful.




Gosh how I love this dog, he is definitely a pampered pooch!  Can you see the look on his face?  “When is this crazy woman going to stop kissing me?”




And with Spring comes the birds. I have a fair number of trees, an abundance of bird houses and bird feeders in my yard. I swear I have a couple of bulimic birds because this time of year they eat their weight in bird seed.



We are blessed with a beautiful yard (that takes a lot of work to keep it looking even half decent) but we love to linger there for breakfast, lunch and dinner and maybe the odd afternoon nap in the sunshine.





This is the baby we have been long-term babysitting while our boy Elliot and his girlfriend Jenny are traveling around Indonesia (they're now back! Yay!).  She got a flower blossom on her bottom lip, I think it looks like she is smoking a cigarette.  Little dog, big attitude.




Have a great weekend!
