After I watched this great documentary I was so inspired by it, because I know just how important my music is to me, so I decided to watch this PBS fund-raising Special on Yoga and all of the health benefits you get from doing it.
The Yoga instructor was Peggy Cappy and within a couple of minutes she had me hooked on watching this show. Anyway, she inspired me to give Yoga a try, but instead of calling in a pledge to show my support for PBS—I went to Amazon and ordered three of Peggy Cappy's PBS Yoga DVDs. And then a few minutes after I had ordered them I felt guilty for not making a pledge to PBS, because I truly do love PBS.
Well yesterday morning, while Tony and I were drinking our breakfast (healthy smoothies not me fine-boxed-wine or his cheap beer) I started telling him all about that great music documentary and the Yoga show, on PBS. And he seemed interested, even though he never once looked up from his laptop.
I must have talked to him for at least ten minutes about these inspiring shows, and then I said, "Tony, I think you and I need to work harder at being healthier and I hope that you'll try doing yoga with me. The three videos that I ordered are for easing pain, back care basics and easy yoga for diabetes. I know we don't have diabetes, but it does run in our families..."
"Uh huh," was all he said, so I took that for a "yes."
Okay. Today has been great. This afternoon Tony and I went to the Habitat for Humanity, in Kerrville, because we love to shop at that store. And we ended up only buying two door-stops and an incredible sign that I just had to have, because it spoke volumes to me and it made me laugh.
After that shopping brief spree we made a quick stop, at Walmart, so I could buy myself a Yoga mat and that took longer than we had expected. Because I wanted to buy this pretty pink yoga mat that was 3 mm thick, but Tony wanted me to buy this blue yoga mat, because it had a lot more padding—"10mm THICK." Bottom Line: I bought the more expensive, blue yoga mat. Then we came back home.
Well to my delight there were two UPS packages waiting for me, at our gate and they were Peggy Cappy's PBS yoga DVDs! "Talk about perfect timing," I said, as we drove up to The Cabin.
As soon as we got inside, The Cabin, I lined up my purchases and was taking pictures of them for my blog tonight and then I started laughing at myself, because the big, blue yoga (Exercise) mat and Peggy's three yoga DVDs were about me (maybe us) trying to get healthier, but my newly-purchased, beloved, used-sign was putting out a completely opposite message.
