Knitting, and Yoga........both good for Stress!

Coffee latte continues to grow and grow.  Believe it was about 22-23 inches at this point.  I've now completed a good part of the tan section after the variegated you see in this photo.  Pleased this one is coming along so quickly.  


This really made me laugh.  Been awhile since I've done my yoga.  Was trying to do it several times a week using a video from Amazon Prime, but my time has been so filled with things revolving around Dad moving into an Assisted Living Center.
Just this past Tuesday, Dad turned 93.  The facility let us gather for his birthday cake in the private dining room they have.  Myself, older brother Chuck, and younger brother Mike.  Our spouses all joined us as well, just not in the picture.


I hadn't planned to continue to watch this show, McLeod's Daughters, but several people told me it was still good even after the star, Claire (pictured far left here in grayish hat), left the show.  So, I've started watching it again.  It's different, still enjoyable; but I do miss Claire and the relationship she and Alex had.

**Did you notice the new addition to my right side bar?  My frequent visitors...Made a special list to say thank you.  If you've not been to their blogs, please do.**

    The coffee latte is coming along really well. The yoga made me laugh! I attempt yogalates once a week, just to try and keep myself flexible (especially my lower back), but I really should do it more often (although I let other things get in the way!) Congratulations to your Dad too.
    Best wishes

    1. I hear ya Ellie about letting other things get in the way. I do the same thing, need to work harder at doing the exercises and then do the other stuff.

  3. A belated happy birthday to your dad. How lovely to celebrate his birthday together after his recent move to assisted living. Something nice after all the stress that caused. Talking of stress, I've never done yoga but I've heard so many people say how they enjoy it.

    Love the picture of you, you dad and your brothers. Your dad, even if he doesn't know it, is lucky to have you all on his side.

    1. Wish I understood why you're having trouble with the comments. I've not changed my settings from before and you didn't have trouble then. Sometimes this stuff on blogger is so confusing. So nice to see you visiting again.

  7. I hate yoga! A much as I practice, which is on occasion, I can't do the tree pose because I can't balance on one foot. I fail to understand how stressing myself out is supposed to relax me.

    Have a great week, Sandy.

    1. I don't have good balance either, so try to stick with moves that aren't one foot. Plus, after breaking my one foot, I'm a bit protective.

  8. Nice picture of you all with your Dad. He looks good. I remember the home my Mom was in would have a party one day a month for all the residents who had birthdays that month. For my parents anniversary, we had a party in a private room for them.

  9. 93 years young!! The photos are awesome!

    I can't wait to get back into my hobbies of jewelry making and sewing . . . we have moved back home since the hurricane forced us out, but still not back to "normal." Something pleasant to look forward to!
