I need a few eyeballs! I’m doing an editing round on my short story Cozy Mystery. If you’d like a free copy to give me feedback let me know! You don’t have to read books 1-6 first – it’s about a couple in their 50s, three 20-something girls, and a mystery they solve :). Let me know if you prefer MOBI EPUB or PDF. My narrator has already finished books 1-6 in this series and is eager to get started on it :).
I enjoyed a lovely yoga session. Bob was my personal DJ – he found exactly the right BPM songs for my hula hoop workout afterwards! What are you up to today? #namaste
Evening meditation time. I think it was only 81F today here in Mass but it was brutal. I’m sure my sis in AZ calls this “sweater weather” :). It’s that humidity, right? #namaste
Only 5 days left until the Autumn deadline for the Mused Literary Review! Get those poems, short stories, photos, drawings, and other works submitted!
Please share the news!
Just so happy. My amazing narrator for my cozy zoo mystery series just finished up book 6, The Minuscule Mouse. It should be going live soon. You should be able to listen to book 1 for free with the free Audible trial to see what she sounds like. She does an awesome job with the accents and voices!
I had a gentle yoga session today. I’m still not risking plank (i.e. push-up) pose but I can do the rest of my routine, including hula-hooping. I’m doing my best to be gentle with the injured toe. I’m hoping my toenail doesn’t fall off, maybe it can heal? The dark area has been slowly expanding over the past two weeks but seems to have stalled, and it almost seems as if it’s getting lighter in the center. Is that a good sign? Or do I have to resign myself to losing the nail? #namaste
Evening meditation time. I’m in a sunflower art show at the Booklovers’ Gourmet in Webster (mine is the right photo) and it’s so wonderful seeing everyone’s styles. Bob had his sunflower featured in both the Smart Shopper and the Yankee Express – the square photo at the top. The show runs through Aug 31. What are you grateful for tonight? #namaste
I had a lovely yoga session today plus some hula hoop. I have lots of writing & art stuff to do today – yoga helps me prepare for both! What are you up to today? #namaste
Evening meditation time. Women with obesity who meditated just 6 weeks saw a significant decrease in fasting blood sugar levels (study from Obesity journal). It’s amazing how meditation can improve one’s health – and it’s free. Just sit and close your eyes. I’m sure it works for men, too :). #namaste
I had a great yoga session today. Did you know that yoga helps buffer against DNA mutations? Some practitioners remain healthy despite having genetic abnormalities. The Icahn Institute did a large study where they tested people for genetic issues. They found quite a number of people who seemed perfectly healthy but it turns out they had DNA mutations. It appears their yoga routine and healthy eating buffered them against their mutations “activating” and causing the disease. #namaste
