Workout and Word of the Day #21

Hello My Dear Darling Friends!

How is your week going?  This has been a good week for me.  I have been spending lots of time in the garden and am enjoying my new guitar.  Yesterday my fingers were super sore.  In another lifetime, I was a violinist and I decided to take classical guitar lessons for a few months in middle school.  Back then, I was spoiled because I had already built up substantial calluses on my fingertips and the nylon guitar strings were much softer than my violin strings.  It has been probably about 14 plus years since I have seriously played the violin and my fingers were so sore, but it also felt good knowing that I am taking on a new challenge.  This is really stimulating the creative side of me that has been starving in recent years.

I loved playing the violin

My life has been so busy with school, work, and moves that I haven’t had much time to invest in creative hobbies and endeavors other than blogging and working out.  I am enjoying this change of pace!

Workout of the Day: Leg Day + some fun dances!

“Dance Monkey” warm-up:

This dance warm up made me happy.  Every time I dance (even if it is just for a few minutes) it makes me realize how much I miss it.  I need to start dancing more!

Word of the Day:

harissa– noun

I love learning about new and exciting spices and flavors especially now that I am cooking much more than before.  What are some of your favorite spices?  Please comment below to share!
