This, has been a week. My good yoga teacher friend, decided to take a little trek to Sante Fe, NM to take some classes with a great teacher. I took from him once, when he came to St. Louis. He has vast anatomy knowledge and had a way of teaching it that made everyone want to stay awake! She’ll be back today. Good deal. I taught 4 extra classes this week. I’m feeling 41, probably because I am. Since I lost my great yoga job at the City, I haven’t been teaching in the evenings. So, I subbed 3 nights in a row, on top of my normal gigs. Last night at the Y were two classes, back to back. Whoa. The first one Level One, second Level Two. I left there feeling like I gave the Level One class more than I did the Level Two. I was drained. Not just from the teaching. My kids are way busy. We had 3 swim parties and a sleepover, a trip to Silver Dollar City (not me, the kids) the laundry, the grocery store, the usual with extra running.
I didn’t ride my bike to class last night. I rode it yesterday to MSU to teach at noon. #1- I’ve been saving some gas and it’s good for me. #2 – I got a parking ticket that will cost me $23, wow. I’ve never purchased a parking sticker for the summer, but I guess I will now! To make matters worse, she was placing the ticket on my windshield as I walked up to my car. That’s a drag. There were only like 12 cars in the whole lot, plus I’m only over there for like 90 minutes, sheesh!
My glass tile arrived yesterday. In order to get like 3 sheets of glass tile, search ebay or the internet for other sources. A specialty tile store here in town, let me know I had to order a case of this crap if I wanted some. Puhlease. They are a TILE store, they should have this stuff all over the place! I’m thinking, remnants, returns, you know what I mean? But no. So, the glass tile I got from the internet shows up. It’s gorgeous, shimmery, iridescent and, well, very yellow. It was called Pale Ale, I’m thinking beer not lemonade. I have to return it, not enough contrast for what I’m trying to do. So, I think I’ll try this instead.
It actually looks like gray/black slate when the light isn’t hitting it. It’s on ebay, and cheaper than the other tile I just ordered, go figure. I can’t imagine doing my entire backsplash with glass and being able to actually afford it! This stuff can run up to $30 a square foot, but you know, I teach yoga. Not the highest paying career in the world.
Speaking of yoga, I teach in 45 minutes, so I’d better get with it. After teaching, we are off for the weekend to Bolivar, MO to the huge Campbell Family Reunion – my husband’s side. I will try to control myself while we are there. All we do is sit around, talk and eat. I do bring my yoga mat to this thing, every – single – year. Enough said.
