This And That

Let me first start out by saying THIS WEATHER IS NUTS!!
Today we broke a record in Delisle. We hit 35 degrees Celsius. That is 95 degrees Fahrenheit for you American readers. Our normal high for this time of year is 17 degrees Celsius, 62,6 Fahrenheit. All I can say is yuk. Enough already! We are under a Severe Thunderstorm Warning for this evening. Lovely. It's September Mother Earth. Cool off already! (Respectfully submitted)

Next up, yoga. I am so pleased with the amount of time I am able to dedicate to my practice. I logged over 4 hours this week so far and I am loving it. Loving it. But... and this is a big but to me, I am struggling with some sort of wonky shoulder thing. Pain right along my right collar bone up my neck a few inches. It is not bothersome at all until I raise my arms over my head for Sun Salutations. I wince every time. My sleep is badly interrupted by this annoyance. I have been up every night this week around 3:30 am due to it. I get up, take some ibuprofen, and try in vain to get back to sleep. I don't know what this is all about but I tell you I am very sick of it.

Speaking of lack of sleep, today Paul got a medical call at 5:15 am. For those who don't know he is a Firefighter/First Responder on the side. Anyway, he got a call and after having to awaken him to tell him his pager was beeping, I couldn't get back to sleep. I got up and put the coffee on and both of us have been up ever since, after going to bed quite late last night. He has been out of town most of the week so I was looking forward to having dinner with him tonight. And wouldn't you know it, just as I was putting the tilapia in the frying pan, his pager went off again. Fire this time. 3rd Fire this week. Ugghhh!

Athena's Kindergarten is going well. She is loving it so far, except one morning this week when I had to awaken her. She came down the stairs and said "Mom, I changed my mind. I want to be home schooled today." Umm, no. I counted the steps to school when I picked her up. 450 steps exactly. From our door to the school door. Not too bad. I'll be getting some nice fresh air in the winter, which I can't wait for. Especially on days like this.

On a more positive note, it is Paul's 45th birthday on Saturday. Our favorite people are coming for the weekend. Paul's sister Mona and Stephane, her husband. LOVE THEM! I am trying some new recipes and some old standbys as well. I'll post those along with some pictures on Monday.
My Mom and baby sister Dana are also stopping by, from Regina, on Saturday morning. That will be nice too. So needless to say, tomorrow will be filled with cooking prep and guest room making up and I hope to squeeze in another yoga practice. Perhaps not the 80 minute practice but something. Oh, I also get to talk to my sister on the phone tomorrow too. Another weekly highlight.

Happy weekend to you all. Here's hoping this weather breaks and we get some true fall weather soon. After all, the first day of Autumn is on Tuesday.
