Hi.

Welcome! I’m Catherine. For me, it's important to stretch my mind, travel far, and always have a stash of dark chocolate.

Starting | Yoga with Adriene's 30 Day Yoga Challenge. She begins one every January and I felt like it's the perfect way to reset my body. My left hip has been bothering me again (it pops out of it's socket easily) and one way to alleviate my discomfort is strengthening all of the surrounding muscles.

I had this allusion that to workout effectively I needed to find time when Phoenix was asleep. But, honestly, I don't want to use his bed or nap time to workout. Instead, I roll the mat out and Phoenix climbs on me while I'm in child's pose.

Hoping | We all remain healthy this winter. The flu is running rampant around town and I pray we don't get it. Phoenix and Jordan had colds in December, but thankfully their colds didn't land them in the hospital like everyone I know who has had the flu!

Phoenix's colds do lean towards turning into croup, but our humidifier and some essential oils appears to help. The key is keeping him from coughing.

Scheduling | I'm not working as much this month, so in-between beginning our taxes I also need to schedule doctors appointments. The dentist mainly.

Reading | I just finished Instructions for a Heatwave (which I really liked), but have yet to begin anything else. I'm sure I'll discover a few recommendations from all of you!

Playing | Phoenix's great-grandma and grandparents gifted him plates, bowls, cups and spoons for Christmas. He immediately started pretending to eat and drink from them. I'm having a lot of fun watching him begin playing imaginatively. I loved my play-kitchen as a child. Down-the-line, if we move to a bigger house, I'd like to clean to up and let Phoenix have it.

Linking with Anne.
