Radio for a New Earth

Ok - I'm coming out of the closet. For those who don't know me well, I am metaphysical.
There - I'm out.
In case you hadn't realized yet, new age is now mainstream. You don't have to be woo,woo to participate. Look at Oprah's programs with Eckhart Tolle.

There is a new radio station being birthed on the internet:
Maia Radio Talk Radio for a New World -metaphysics and new age and all. I can't wait!!!
Look at the gorgeous web page!

I've been listening to the podcast Stargate to a New Earth. Maia Radio is "a child" of this podcast.
For those of you who are sensing that something's different, something is changing in the world, dive in - listen to the podcast and keep checking in to the Maia site.

In other news, I'm through the ribbing on the Aud sweater and starting to lag in my Olympic Sprint. But I'm through the ribbing. ;-) Now the stockinette sprint for infinity + inches to the armhole decreases.

Below, the daring duo in all their furry glory hanging out by the carder, looking out the door early on a weekend morning -lazing until the flutter of sparrow wings launches them into hunting mode.

Furball left........................Bear right

Bear surveying the kingdom from the second floor, peering out through the walkway bars.

Speedy - he's the largest and the most chicken of the three. "I'm a ninja-cat. I'm not coming in.....
I'm,... I'm,..... a ninja cat. You can't see me!"

"See? You can't see me." Just then someone upstairs came out on the walkway. "AaaaaHHHHH!!!!!! Let me in! Let me in the door!!!!!! I see people!!!!!"

Sunday, Sunday....

Today is the day I try to do all the home chores that fall away when I teach. When my classes are in session I expend a lot of energy for teaching what I love.When I come home and am faced with never ending picking up and vacuuming and laundry - hauled to another destination and hours spent waiting for dryers that don't de-fuzz- I just Don't have the oomph to do it on Saturdays.

This morning I woke up at a glorious 9:00 am! I don't know the last time I actually slept so late.
My usual time is 5am. :0)

The plan for today is to switch the living room around and vacuum mightily. then start to get my room organized so that this week I can get my stash under control and all put away. As that is happening, I need to cook for the week if I'm going to take lunches to work and have easy dinners when I get home.

I'm acquiring a loom this next weekend and need to make room for it and my Total Gym (yes, I have one and I really like using it.). The TG has had an extended stay in my son's apartment and now it's time to bring it home.

I have noticed a marked lack of strength and energy that I can directly attribute to a lack of exercise and sedentary work environment. When I'm actually doing my work it's very physical involving carrying heavy equipment and standing for hours shooting video, but in between, there is so much time just sitting whether I'm researching or writing or whatever, that it's taking a toll.

We all know what we're supposed to do - eat sensibly, get exercise, drink more fluids, sleep on a schedule. What we give up on so often is the effort it takes to get back to a balance. We forget how much better we will feel if we just DO It.

So today, I going to JUST DO IT. The end for now.
Have a great day, week etc. Happy Knitting.
