I know spring is around the corner when my amazon orders start looking crazy. I started to notice that my spending goes absolutely berzerk when something in my brain receives the message that winter is over and starts buying crap we don’t need. Before amazon. I would buy make up I don’t use, tv commercial gadgets that you know are too good to be true, and clothes that are out of your comfort range. Some of them are not mistakes. I still have and wear my magenta Converse All Stars from 1983 and still keep a collection of garish big and loud Laura Ashley print dresses that should really be accent pillows, not dresses, but most of the stuff is definitely what some other folks have described as shopping while on ambien. This year’s haul? a collection (bought separately) of perfume oils (attars) one worse smelling than the other, but I wanted a winner so I kept ordering. Nope. There are no winner fragrances for under $20. the bottles sure are awesomely “unique”. I also am the owner of an overpriced harem “jumper” but that one I am wearing every other day and enjoying every disapproving look it garners, but the main complaint here is the tendency to overspend. Always catches me by surprise. I don’t have much yoga news except for the fact that pranayama and breathing in general makes you emotional and thankful after being unable to utilize your nostrils because of the flu. And today once again I see proof that the practice rewards your perseverance when circumstances keep you away for a bit. Ashtanga is not for the strong and the flexible, it is for the willing. OH! and my Hamish Hendry Yoga Dharma book has been shipped, so it’s not all nonsense.
