I slept until almost 9am this morning then drank a glass of oj and settled onto my yoga mat in the sunroom. Today’s choice was one of my new DVDs, a practice for each trimester created by a yogi mother of five. If anyone knows what sort of yogic preparation is helpful for childbirth, it’s a woman who’s done it five times! I did the second trimester practice, ignoring some of the modifications that are not yet necessary for me, and finished a few minutes before 10. I ate a very quick breakfast, smeared on sunscreen, filled a water bottle and waited for my friend to arrive. We wandered into the park and walked a big loop, which included climbing to the top of Strawberry hill where we enjoyed a view of the bay and the ocean. There wasn’t a cloud in the sky and the temperature was a perfect 70. By the time I returned home 1 1/2 hours later, I was actually a little worn out from walking and was feeling the heat. I drank more water as I stretched on my yoga mat, and am about to tackle some unpacking before I bike to the Haight farmers market!
