I have somehow booked myself for an extremely busy and an extremely exciting October 23rd! Here's what happening: Aside from Book Club that morning for brunch, I have been invited to my first food blogger event AND its Revelations Yoga's Holistic Festival!
The first big problem here is that the Food Blogger Event and the Holistic Festival are at the exact same time...in different towns. My plan is to get to the food blogger event almost on time and leave it slightly early in time to make it to Revelation for 3:30/3:45 or so. I plan on kicking around some of the activities tents for a bit (dream interpretation anyone?) then going to the 4:30 Yoga Breathing and Aromatherapy class. I encourage anyone curious about yoga to attend the 4:30 class...my understanding from Kim is that it will be a nice introduction into yoga in general.
The second slightly bigger problem is that I am not really a food blogger. I mean, I throw some basic recipe and food ideas at you guys and I can hold my own in the kitchen, but I don't really have any recipes beyond my standard tomato mixture. Well, to be more precise, I do not have many recipes that I created on my own beyond the standard. I do know what flavors and textures I like though and I am in the process of brainstorming what I think will be an interesting, healthy, seasonal and flavorful dish. I plan on giving it a a test run this weekend.
And speaking of this weekend, Saturday the New England Yoga Championships are at Showcase Live at Patriot's Place. Now, I have very mixed feelings about the idea of yoga as a sport. Yoga is not supposed to be competitive, you are supposed to be on your own mat etc etc. BUT I do think it will be cool to see these yogis and yoginis in action, so I am going to go. As of right now I am going alone, so if anyone is interested in coming with me, please let me know. I will most likely go running that morning with the girls, drag myself 10 minutes late into Power Yoga at Revelation, drive home and take the quickest shower known to mankind and head up to Foxborough for noon or so (the championships are 10-2:30).
