stuck inside (with) this sweater

IMG_20140125_072803 It snowed again yesterday. The entire month of January has been so cold and gross that I'm wishing for summer. I hate hot weather and I find myself wishing for it! I haven't worked a full week at school since we got back from break, which is deadly to my beloved "routine." I've had to cancel classes at the studio a couple of times, which I hate doing.

I've been living in my fleece footie pajamas or my beloved enormous army green sweater. This sweater has seen better days...it needs to be retired, but I just can't, it's too big and baggy and good. I reached my breaking point on Friday when I realized that I was wearing the sweater underneath my fleece onesie...this has got to stop.

There are ways I've been making these snow days productive/lovely.

Christina Sell posted one of her Asana Junkies practice sessions in full on Youtube...Love this. She's a phenomenal teacher and I had the opportunity to work with her a little bit in Austin...can't wait for two of her weekend workshops this spring. This video is 2+ hours, so I doubt it will be of any interests to non-yogis! Ha!

Reading yet another WWII book while wearing the exact same outfit as your six month old nephew....don't judge...that is my fleece onesie and I LOVE IT.   

Last night with the fam, we decided to put ourselves through the emotional train wreck that is In the Valley of Elah. If you haven't seen this movie, watch it and be prepared to have your heart ripped out and stomped on....it's so good (!). Especially if you want to see a brief appearance by a young post Freaks & Geeks, pre-crazyhead James Franco...be still my heart!

So, I sit here looking ahead to yet another day of cold. What's on my agenda? You guessed it: yoga, reading, cleaning, cooking, fam time. I apologize for the meandering nature of this post...I blame it on cabin fever.

I'll be back tomorrow with my pose post. I'm moving it to Monday mornings I think...will give me more time to get together on Sundays. I hope everyone reading is warm this weekend. Enjoy it!
