Trying to live life with sandy toes and laughter

Shopping fun…

I’m at the local grocery store and using my peripherals I spot this cute guy, so, of course, I do nothing. Continue with my shopping. Much later I’m staring at the wall of protein powders trying to figure out which one to buy when I hear someone say “excuse me…”, I turn, and it’s the cute guy. Cool.
So he’s all “Do you mind If I ask you what might be a personal question?”. My first thought is ‘sweet… hot guy is picking me up’, so I say OK.
He pulls his hands out from behind his back and has two boxes of tampons and says “I don’t get it… what’s the difference? One box (the OB tampons) says that there are 60 in it, and the other (Tampax) has only 20. But the Tampax box is way bigger. I don’t get it.”. So I’m embarrassed and bright red at this point but I proceed to try to explain the difference “one type has an applicator and one type doesn’t”, he’s all “huh”. So now I’m mortified… how do I explain the importance of an applicator to this guy? I’m sure I’m being punked and am waiting for Ashton to jump out the cereal Isle. No such luck. So then I concentrate hard and try to make myself invisible. Again no luck. So I just tell him “trust me… get the one with the applicator”, and he really doesn’t want to. Says he likes the little box of ob’s because it’s small and he can roll it in his sleeve like a pack of cigs… which he proceeds to do. I’m not sure what happened after that… I may have run screaming from the store… I seem to have blocked the rest out?

A closer look at Poplar Island, the small island off the Fraser River that I see every morning. There’s a dark history to this island. I had heard that it was used to quarantine people during the small pox epidemic in 1889. What I didn’t know was that New Westminster was originally all Qayqayt territory, and when Europeans settled in the area they displaced the Qayqayt peoples to Poplar Island. When small pox hit, Indigenous populations were hit hard. It almost completely decimated the community on the island. Europeans then continued to send any indigenous people with small pox to the island. The island ended up becoming a burial ground. Looking at the poplar tree life that grows from the island in a new light now. #qayqayt #remember #bchistory
BEEhave At first I thought this was a birdhouse but it turned out to be a bee🐝house. More accurately, a bee condominium. Found this beautiful world as I was out looking for colour inspiration in nature for my loft. #newwest #bee #behave #nature #color #colour #boardwalk #design #decor
I used to fill my IG page with travel pics, but now my weekly walk for groceries feels as exciting as a destination across the world. Probably helps that there’s so much spring nature decorating my path. #socialdistancing #spring #nature #bloom #love #community #staylocal
My broadcast nightmare came true when I taught my entire class on Easter Monday without sound 😬 so I’m offering an extra class this week on Thursday April 16th via Instagram live at 7:30 pm. With sound 😀 Follow my other account @lofty_vibe to be notified when I go live. #yoga #soundhealing #restorativeyoga #ufodrum #instagramlive #relax #restore #chill
I was getting setup for tonight’s #restorativeyoga class and noticed the shadows. I can’t resist geometric framing. Anyway, if you’re ready to relax, tune in every Monday @lofty_vibe at 7:30 pm. If you are feeling a little screen fatigue, rest assured 😉 you won’t be looking at your phone. All you need is the sound. #yoga #restorative #heartchakra #happydrum #soundhealing #singingbowlmeditation
Three days at a silent retreat might seem terrifying to some, but this introvert loved it. Here are a few reasons why. No tech, after taking a few pictures I surrendered my phone. The need to capture everything that caught my eye was replaced with a hunger to observe everything deeply. Practicing the ancient art of pen writing. I spent time with my thoughts, journaling and doodling them out. Without Google to ask, I spent more time thinking things through, exercising my problem solving skills. I perused the library and rekindled my love for books. I just wish I could find a copy of that book I didn’t finish. The tea station with every imaginable fresh herb 🌿 for bespoke creations. I’m not a foodie, but I do love when food is healthy and so well prepared that I’d choose it over a burger and fries. The evening campfires reminded me of home. And I burned some baggage 🧳 I’m ready for a longer silent stay if anyone has any local suggestions. #silentretreat #bali #retreat #digitaldetoxchallenge
