Day 56 - A good day

Today was a good and productive day.

I woke up feeling quite rested after a much needed 10 hour sleep. My neighbours organized a garage sale and we decided to participate last minute. It felt great to clean out closets and boxes and drawers I rarely open. This was a necessary cleanse and purge, because Craig is officially moving in at the end of the month and will need space for his stuff.

We've lived temporarily together before, like when Craig's apartment had bedbugs last year and when he got back from photographing at the Olympics this winter. But this is different. Now we will share one address. I'm a (recovering) commitment-a-phobe, so normally, I'd be anxious, but I'm not. I'm actually pretty excited. Anyway, I digress.

We made $32.50 at today's garage sale, peddling vintage jewelery, old textbooks, curtains and few other odds and ends. We were pleased, although I'm not sure if $32.50 for a whole day of selling is a good use of time. Regardless, I was happy hanging around the house and chatting with passerbys. At one point, I did some sun salutations on sidewalk for fun, and I think it helped our sales, because we made $18 just while I was practicing!

Tonight, I was at Lululemon Fairview for a community practice of 54 surya namaskar by candle light. It was sweet. The people who came were lovely. I only knew a few of them, but several approached me after and said they regularly read my blog, which is pretty cool, because from this end, it's hard to tell how many people actually follow my posts.

Oh, and regarding my shoulder/clavicle pain I mentioned yesterday, thanks for the suggestions and offerings of massage and reiki. I really appreciate it and will definiately take you up on the offer.


  1. Hi Yasmin,

    I was at Lululemon on Sat. and truly enjoyed the whole experience. It was different from what I am used to doing in my other yoga classes.

    I'm sorry I had to run off in a hurry without relaxing in the Savasana but I was late for my daughters' show!
