What to do to feel mellow

Flo's basket 001-A

Flo’s beautiful gift:  A woven basket, which contained lox and bagels and now contains paper napkins.  Mahalo, Flo!

David has been going to work this week despite the status quo.  We’ll see what his doctor says next Wednesday.  David has a lot to discuss with him, such as his job, his health, and his wife.  Nuff said.

I googled Bead It as well as Bead Gallery for their classes, and have chosen Bead Gallery in Kalihi.  The basic wiring class is expensive ($60), but I would be tutored privately for one hour.  Hmmm.  Let me ponder this for a while. I need to be in the creative mood for this to happen.

There will be a one week hiatus next week and there will be no hula class.  A new six week session starts the following week.  Yes, I have registered for Beginners Hula Kupuna for a second time.  I simply adore my teacher, because she is very kind, never scolds us, and actually relaxes me.  I enter the room feeling on edge and leave an hour later feeling mellow. I just love Hawaiian music and hula.

What do you need to do to feel mellow?

    I love that basket!

    To feel mellow? I like to WALK over Arabia Mountain or crochet quietly while watching TV.

    Instant mellow follows if I can sit outside, close my eyes and feel warm. I think I’m getting old lol

    I meant to say David will know if it is right for him to follow the course he is taking – others can only advise and watch as he makes the decision.
    Would you like to be a fly on the wall when the word ‘wife’ is mentioned 🙂
    Take care

    A glass of wine does it for me. Just one. 🙂

    Repurposing a basket is a good thing. The cabernet should help mellow you. Hope you and David enjoy it soon.

    On another note, the Bead Gallery jewelry course may seem expensive but you’re paying for real gold, pretty stones (some semi-precious), and the clasp is extra. At least, you won’t have to pay for the tools – now that is expensive. Jason and Jamie are great instructors so I know you will enjoy taking the course. Have fun!

    I have done some beading, but have kind of gotten away from that. i wear so very little jewelry it did not seem worth continuing when other hobbies take up enough of my time. I am mellowing out by taking long walks.

    Oddly as much as I dread the 30 minutes PT workout EVERY morning…after the session I feel so relaxed. I guess it took my mind off troubling thoughts and allowed me to focus on body movements.

    Now that you have found something that makes you feel mellow, maybe hubby can also find something to mellow his stress. Exercise and a glass of wine does it for me.

    Your hula teacher sounds wonderful. I remember taking skiing lessons once and the instructor did nothing but yell at me. You just can’t concentrate when being yelled at. The beading class sounds very relaxing too. Hope David’s visit to the doc goes well.
    Thanks for stopping by my SWF post and I wish you you a great weekend.

    p.s. sorry for the repeat you-you 😉 I am still waking up this morning and it’s taking a while.

    lovely basket! That bead class sounds too expensive, I listen to restful music sometimes.

    The basket is beautifully made. You’ll enjoy it for a long time.
