Today started out rather grim. It was rainy and cold and quite miserable in the city. The type of day where you want to stay home, curl up in a warm afghan, with a book, a big pot of green tea and hibernate. My energy felt totally drained by the grey skies.
This afternoon, instead of coming straight home to spend the afternoon working, I decided to take myself to a two hour dance workshop that was being run not too far from the college where I teach. Let me tell you, it was a blast.
Post dance class, my body is super sore from the work out as dance is not in my repertoire for exercise but I got to laugh at myself, and my apparently clumsy, and slightly uncoordinated movements (all important things). Sometimes you just need to switch things up a bit. When I left the studio, lucky me, the sun had come out which is what I am looking at now out of the west facing window of my flat as I write this post. I am keeping my fingers crossed the weather stays like this all weekend.
What is making you smile this afternoon? Here are some photos that may help.
