    Stars!

    I'm not looking forward to summer; Liam was born in late summer so he knows it, but he's also since experienced a winter. My poor baby. Thank goodness for air conditioning!

    The trick to the tahini cookies will be in getting my mother to try them. If I manage that - and she likes them - I will have won big time.

      JCU Oy, good luck with that! I imagine my mom would be pretty skeptical of tahini cookies.

                  Thanks! DorothyMH Fremen JCU Manticore Anek

                  DorothyMH It was a good introduction to different types of stretching, though I still prefer yoga for flexibility. Stronghold was my favorite of the 7 days.

                    Oh I see. Well, just a fair warning in case you are thinking of Yoga Week for that: itโ€™s HARD. And itโ€™s 7 days of strength workouts, that are....HARD.

                      DorothyMH Ha, thanks for the warning! It does look hard. Actually, all of the other 7 day ones look hard. I think I'll just tiptoe back over to the programs for now.

                              So wheel pose has forever been the yoga thing I couldn't do, even though I haven't had trouble with other backward bendy movements. I could just never straighten my arms, even with coaching from various yoga instructors, YouTube videos, tutorials and a lot of trying. But I've always figured I would figure it out one day, and today, apparently, was that day. On a whim, I started trying some new YouTube videos, at first with no more success than before. But then some magic happened and I found myself halfway up and so stunned I dropped back to the floor. I tried it again, and boom I was in wheel pose. ๐Ÿ˜ฒ I confirmed I could replicate it, and now I have a starting point for improving it.

                                Never give up trying... Great job with the wheel pose!
