Last day of November and Happy 40th birthday to my old man! I have enjoyed thinking about all of the many things for which I have to be thankful and I could on and on indefinitely. One final one for now, however. I am so grateful for a healthy body that can do so many things. I have been trying to do yoga every day and it just feels so amazingly good! I love it when they say things like, "Honor the part of you that knows no doubt." Okay! This morning we went for a brisk walk on the beautiful trail nearby and then came home and started raking. I love to get exercise while actually accomplishing something useful. Whenever I am running on the treadmill, or some other activity in which I am getting nowhere fast, I can just feel my pioneer mothers looking over my shoulder snickering and wondering why I'm not simply keeping fit by whacking the carpets and chasing after the hens. It is silly I'll admit. Actually raking wasn't so much exercise as much as an exercise in futility once the wind sprang up and started swirling all of my piles every which way.
