Autumn Treasuries

Did you know that Etsy is getting rid of treasuries? Apparently they just aren’t used by shoppers very often. I don’t disagree with Etsy’s reasoning, but I will miss these beautiful collections.

Its been a tough week around here. My grandfather died last week, of complications of pneumonia. So, I spent the weekend in Massachusetts for his funeral. It was difficult, but he lived a long life, with few regrets, and up until the last month actually had a very good quality of life. And the end was peaceful. Really, it is the best any of us can hope for. Definitely, it served as a reminder that life is finite, and we should make the most of it.
Of course it was great to see my extended family. We try to have a reunion every year, but not everyone, including me can always make it, so unfortunately we only see each other at weddings and funerals. Naturally, my family does the Irish wake, celebrating life with stories and jokes. Some of my grandparents neighbors, from France, couldn’t believe how loud it was. Even my grandmother got a laugh over that.

Busy Week and Etsy Treasury: Oktoberfest

I have a lot going on this week. I just got back from a trip to England and Scotland, which was amazing. Expect several blog posts about it in the next few weeks. So I’m trying to get back in the groove of things here, timezones, a pile of dirty laundry, and what was I working on a week and a half ago? I’m getting my garden ready for fall, new flowers on the front porch, and all the yard work I put off while it was so humid all summer. I want to make more jam and pickles before the season for summer fruits and veggies is over.
Also, I’m starting to ready for an Oktoberfest themed cookout we have every year that will be in a few weekend, things like deep cleaning the house and I’ll start cooking a few days ahead of time. I even make preztels from scratch. Last year we got rained out by a hurricane, so hopefully that won’t happen again, but if it does then it will just be Jon and I with a bunch of beer, chicken wings, and pretzels, watching Netflix.

Yoga Breakthrough and Etsy Treasury

 Yesterday I had a minor breakthrough during yoga; I finally felt comfortable in fish pose. Most people don’t find this to be a particularly difficult pose, but my lower back doesn’t bend. When I was a teenager, I had back surgery for scoliosis, and my lower 6 vertebrae were fused together. Mostly this is a great thing, I would otherwise have a crooked spine. Also, I’m less likely to have back problems in the future as I age. The downside is that I do have reduced flexibility. In reality it’s almost never an issue, my body has compensated and my hips are more flexible. But there are a few poses, not necessarily difficult ones, that I feel uncomfortable in, or just get no benefit from.

 Yesterday, during a yin class (deep stretching), I tried it with the blocks in different positions than I had previously, and was able to finally feel some benefit and gentle stretching in my middle and upper back. It continually surprises me how my body keeps getting stronger and more flexible, in addition to the mental benefits. This is also a great example of how yoga translates to life, accepting your weaknesses doesn’t mean accepting defeat.

Do you practice yoga? What are your favorite type of classes? What do you struggle with?
