Sat Nam Yogis!
Welcome back to the next episode and Day 4 in our #YogicJourneyandWildGooseAdventure.
Since Day 3 bled into Day 4 and we were at my Grandpa’s we decided to take it as a much needed day of rest. To be honest we had not decided what we were doing when we passed out in the early morning hours of the forth day but having slept through all six of our alarms to finally arise a little after 1pm, our decision was made for us.
Groggily we both got up. Amy headed for the bathroom to get the toiletries unpacked and Chris off to get the coffee started so they could be ready to head out for a late lunch with Grandpa. Soon they were off and thus far nothing yogic happened. We both stuck to our yogic diet which wasn’t that hard at Olive Garden. We were pretty disappointed in Dick’s Sporting Goods for their complete absence of any warm base layer gear, lack of double sleeping bags that would not require its own SUV to transport it and the lack of customer service shown by several employees. Never again!
Upon returning empty handed, no warm base layers, no pads for Amy’s jacket and no double sleeping bag or blanket, I set out to make yogi tea whilst Amy began the ever illusive search for long lost photos. A few hours later after dinner had settled we moved the coffee table and completed our Stretch pose challenge and daily Sadhana with grandpa looking on. I’m pretty sure he thought us a bit nuts but he simply watched and muse quietly to himself. Done and Done!
Another late night, but aren’t they all when you don’t get to see family often. While Grandpa and I talked for hours, Amy fell fast asleep on the sofa under our newly washed blanket. “It’s so nice to see you both happy.” He said looking over at Amy, then continued, “I love that you found someone that shares your sense of adventure.” I just smiled and nodded. He’s right of course. I am a truly blessed man.
