Take Your Yoga To Kroger

The day started out peaceful enough.  An hour of yoga, zen music, and deep breathing can sucker punch just about any stress that tries to find you.  It works for me.  I'm mellow, all stretched out and least for now.
No, this is not me but I'm gonna try it.

  • Next stop, Kroger.  In case you don't have a Kroger, it is my closest grocery store, and today everyone is there.  I chose the wide, shallow cart so I don't have to break my neck reaching down into it, wiped the handle with germ-free antiseptic, and entered the zone.  I brought my yoga "peace" right in with me and actually enjoyed shopping.  After all it is Christmas and I am buying totally "out of the norm".  I had the biggest grocery bill I have ever had in my life.  We are good well into January!  But my kids are coming home! 
 I want them to love looking in the frig like they did when they were kids so I loaded it up.  And nice meals.  And plenty of snacks.

  • My next agenda item is wrapping!  Turning on the new Christmas CD a best friend got for me.  Maybe make some hot chocolate or green tea...and go at the wrapping! 

 Number three on my "to-do" list is cooking!  How can I possibly make everyone's favorite things in one day?  Well, watch me.

It's raining outside and cold and grey....downright dreary.  But the pansies I planted yesterday and the cardinals who've just returned brighten it up.  It is a most colorful day, and, as always, the best is yet to come.


  1. I wish there was a kroger store in the cleveland area again.

  2. Hi Ms. Sandra and it is so nice to meet you. Mom and I like making new friends.
    What a timely post..since Mom retired she has been thinking about for me I'm quite limber but boy could Mom use it.
    Merry Christmas and enjoy your family.
    Hugs Madi and Mom

  3. I laughed at the post title. I would need more than yoga to venture into a megastore of any sort today.

  4. i love when the "boys" come home, i always make sure the house "smells" special!! they love when i cook for them, now more then ever!!

    merry christmas, have a wonderful time with your family!!

  5. I love Christmas, it's different, a more special family time, because we see more of each other... we dress better too ..(hhh). .. there's more noise and more activity.. and lots of special goodies and treats.

    Merry Christmas to you.

  6. You got a really useful blog. I have been here reading for about an hour. I am a newbie and your success is very much an inspiration for me.
