Salt, The Pelvis, and Some other Random Favorites...

I've decided that chocolate covered almonds with sea salt are about the best things ever. I guess at least in terms of food. Salt on or in anything is pretty good these days especially with the early morning leg cramps that keep surprising me. So salt and headstands are two of my favorite things. I know completely unrelated, but being upside down just allows for an unseen perspective and requires balance. Oh and the pelvis, geez, that's a favorite too. With childbirth, pilates, yoga, and running, I am blown away by the pelvis, the muscles that support it, and how it is central to all that we do. Plus, it is just one of the coolest fucking looking structures of the body. I love hanging my laundry out to dry too. Laundry was my least favorite chore. Yet when clothes pins were added into the mix, things changed. Clothes pins are the shit. Running uphill, no explanation needed. Sleeping, no explanation needed. Lululemon yoga pants cost way too much, but they make your ass look good and they are cozy. Thank goodness for a wonderful mom and birthdays otherwise I wouldn't own any. My favorite blue hoodie, inherited from my sister, which she inherited from a lost in found, love it and I've loved it for nearly 7 years. Sarcasm is one of my favorites as long as I am not in a frustrated mood (you don't want to be around me when I am frustrated, hungry, sleepy, ah yeah, not fun). About the best thing ever when I get a voicemail from my nephew even if I can't understand what he is saying. Stripes, color, art, anything that is different. Striped knee highs were one of the best inventions, nothing better than fun socks. Mail, not email (that is ok too), but letters that come in the mail, super great. Something about opening envelopes, seeing ink on paper, or just getting something other than ads and credit card shit. Feeling sleepy, but hope you enjoyed a few of my favorites...

All good but I don't understand how clothes pins make laundry more fun. ;)
