Monday Morning Musings

The last couple of weeks have been busy with preparations for a round of rituals designed to honor this new ministry. Now that those are over, and I have a relatively quiet week. Next week the Worldviews Seminar begins so life will get busy again. The church I serve is a host site for the seminar, the former rector being a founding member of it. As a host site we offer a place for the group to gather every day for a catered lunch, an afternoon session, and place for cars to be parked while the group takes their bus tours to the various religious centers in the Dearborn/Detroit area. I'm excited to be a part of this and look forward to the presentations. But, that's next week.

This week will be a bit quieter, and for that I am thankful. I was quite exhausted yesterday afternoon, and found myself grateful for a yoga class within an easy bike ride from my house. This particular yoga class is held at 5pm every Sunday, it's a "Restorative" class - with slow easy postures held for a very long time, maybe five minutes each side? I don't know how long, but slow, with lots of deep breathing, low light level, meditative quality, and a long meditation time at the end. It's delightful.

Today I have made a big breakfast for my husband before sending him off to work. Then I spent an hour weeding the garden. Now I'm going to work out and do some yoga, meditate, go for a bike ride, then spend some time reading on the deck.

It's a beautiful, low humidity, sunny day, here.

What about you? What does your week look like? What fun plans do you? Or is it all work?
