It's Opening Weekend

I’m alive! Just returned from a nice visit to the beach after a long, cold, Colorado winter. Born in the summertime (hence the crab theme), I come alive during the summer months! Yay! They’re here! Memorial Day is just approaching which is normally our planting season. Spring came early, so we planted a few weeks ago. The garden is in full sprout already. 


Al and I have taken on a creative project including a live monologue from Ernest Hemingway. We belong to a writing group that studies the lives and writing styles of successful authors from days past. We loved the Woody Allen Movie Midnight In Paris which portrayed the relationship between Gertrude Stein and Ernest Hemingway. Our project is a narration of Hemingway’s life by Stein, with live acts from Hemingway himself. We are really enjoying the research and writing collaboration. If this is what retirement is all about, I’m all about retirement. 


Still teaching my Senyasa (senior yoga) class and working with my long time fitness clients (both human and horse), I’ll be gardening and working on our play this summer. Vegetarian recipes, fitness updates, and horse fitness stories will still be coming as they happen. This weekend kicks it off. Let’s get it on!

Sprouts!

The garden is up! This is my favorite time of year! Spinach, tomatoes, lettuce, parsley, strawberries, basil and more and more and more! Bring on summer!
