Hello, my blossoms and blooms!How are you?Slowly, but surely, nature pushes up and outwards toward the sun, giver
of all life.Much of our grass has
greened up.Daffodils and tulips are beginning
to show themselves.The trees’ buds
swell.It’s springtime.It might be cold, but it’s still
is not unaccustomed to cold springs.We
plant our containers and our fields all the same.It may be cold and it may rain and rain, but
we’ll get something growing.
Tomorrow is already the first day of May.Please heat up soon, Mr. Sol.We’re 2/3’s through spring and it still feels
like late winter.
What also gets worse and worse is Junior’s nagging of me to
get his “temps” so he can learn to drive.Now that the streets are clear of snow and ice, he’s eager to go.Very eager. But I’m not eager to grant him his
wishes.I love him like any mother loves
a son, but I have to admit he has a wild streak in him.I blame that on his father.I worry about that wild streak making an
appearance while Junior is driving.His
father’s driver’s license has been revoked ten times over.Like father like son?Oh my.
Then there’s the fact that a young male driver on a
probationary drivers license shoots car insurance rates through the roof.Junior doesn’t seem to want to listen when I
talk to him about getting a part-time job to pay for the increase in premiums.And to pay for gasoline and repairs.Of course, Señor Zanza just gives me that “he
isn’t my kid” look.Well, when Junior
can prove that he can pay for driving, I’ll consider letting him get his temps.
And, of course, this Saturday, May 3, is the 60th
annual Kiwanis Club of Greater Racine Pancake Day at Festival Hall.From 6 AM
to 6 PM you can stuff yourself with pancakes
and the fixings: http://kiwanisracine.com/?page_id=545
Thank you my dears, one and all, for visiting my blog today.
You’re special because you’re my friends.May the great god Kiwanis bless you with pancakes and syrup of joy.
Now you know, I've mentioned that I'm not always that observant. This place proved just how bad I can be! Less than a mile from my house, is this pilates studio. How long has it been there and I've been completely unaware? Try 10 years! WOW!
Now, how I found it is another wow thing -
in my pursuit to find local places, I was going through the white business section, (just before the residentials). If I hadn't spotted a name that piqued my interest, I would still be oblivious to the fact they are nearly my neighbors!
While I can't pretend to know much about pilates,
I can tell you what I learned.
From my own stand point, I am quite intrigued.
I threw my back out having 'miss froggy', and was also involved in a really bad car accident (vs. beer truck) a long time ago, so I have neck and back issues.
Pilates is designed to help improve concentration, control, stabilization, alignment and centering, endurance and stamina, balance, and breathing (coming from a chronic asthmatic - cool!)
Every movement has purpose.
Synchronicity has Reformer machines that help much more than just floor mat pilates. With weights and springs, and varying tensions, all adjustable for whatever level you're at, you can put so many movements into place to help with anything, whether something specific, like strengthening your knees,or back, or just to improve your posture.
The studio is smaller, so as to give better personalized service, and smaller size classes.
No matter what your abilities or limitations are, there is something beneficial for everyone.
I know I will be looking into this further in the near future. I could see the benefits that I personally could gain by getting into this.
