Early Riser Reward

It is so sweet to get up early on a Sunday morning to "be productive" and be rewarded by a gorgeous sunrise! A nice gentle reminder of all the beauty in the world that exists even when I am trapped in the confines of the city. 

"This City now doth, like a garment, wear
The beauty of the morning; silent, bare,
Ships, towers, domes, theaters and temples lie
Open unto the fields, and to the sky;
All bright and glittering in the smokeless air."
~William Wordsworth

A Clean House

After avoiding a "heavy clean" since the early winter months this past weekend I gave the house a much needed scrub. I feel so much more relaxed when the house is in order and clean and I'm able to do yoga in the living room without thinking about how much the carpet needs to be vacuumed! BLISS!
