Hot like a ‘sunrise’…

my beach

my beach

Man, it’s hot in Sydney today. This is Bali heat alright! It’s funny, I’ve spent all year yearning for heat and all it’s exquisite offerings and now that it’s here I’m moving all over the house to find the coolest spot. I live on a beach ( yep, right on the sand ) and usually the breeze is in abundance but not today. Even the three trees next to my window are looking a bit limp. I should be happy but instead I’m feeling over cooked and miserable. And the kids sense my lack lustre to repremand and are taking their chances and asking me for the usual things I’d say no to… but today it’s a “yep, whatever”. “mum can I have some lollies”, “yep, sure, no probs”.

I’m willing to suck it up and say I’ve wanted this and today I’m celebrating all it’s glory and gifts:

1. It’s meant time on the beach with my boys, which normally is great except today it was too hot for them to fetch their own water so they looked to me to be their humble servant!

2. It’s pizza for dinner tonight and the heat is going to make that dough rise ‘like a sunrise’… I hope! Otherwise it’s Chinese from the bowlo.

3. Supple muscles make any yogi smile. Although, I think mine are taking a holiday from any bodily attachments, other than putting the flour in the kitchen aid, not much else is happening with this body.

4. Sleeping has felt dreamy!

6. Home-made lemonade sounds like a good idea but I’m trying to convince my body to get away from this computer to start the pizza making!

Where ever you are in the world rest assured I’m sweating for all of you today, we’re ONE right! I can do this… Big love to all!

    Man, it’s HOT is Bali today. I am out in empathy with you sister. BTW we had pizza last night, mmmm worth the effort.


    • thanks sister… just realised that my gluten free pizza dough aint rising coz’ I used the wrong flour. errr! at least the kids dough is doing well.


  3. Beautiful beach spot! Homemade lemonade – you’ve inspired me and I think I may add some stevia for sweetness and goodness which I have growing in a pot.


  4. Authentic Indian weather alright, my fellow yogi (am jealous of your house by the way) x


  5. Too tired to do much, but the heat is cleansing, sweating all those toxins out. Keep up the liquids!


  6. Ah, what would we do without weather!!!

    Your beach looks so beautiful and inviting! Pizza and sweat and beaches… three of my favorite things 🙂

    I look forward to following your blog, I hope to learn more about yoga and start practicing with the coming of the new year.

    Oh, I’ve wondered this for a while- what is a lollie? I’ve heard a few other friends mention it/them, but I’ve not heard that term in the States.

    Blessings, Christy


    • beautiful Christy, I just finished my practice and I was thinking about you throughout it. I thought I may have pushed it too far with my comment on your last post. So, it’s really good to hear from you. ‘lollies’ are what you would call candy. Keep well sister and it’s great to connect with you!

        Oh no, you didn’t push anything. In fact, I thought it very sweet of you to reach out in love. I thank you very much.

        Lollies… Ahhhh candy! Yum!! 🙂


  8. I like the view 🙂
