This is my yoga pal, Wyler. Note that he has his shoulders placed well onto his back, which is optimum for practice. With him, I usually modify the seated Easy Pose, as it nearly always includes complimentary scritch-scratching. Wylesome likes to curl around my legs and ankles when I'm in the Downward-facing Dog and Standing Forward Bend poses. I just have to be careful when switching to a lunge. I know he isn't a person, but he sure has helped me in more ways than simply being my yoga partner.

Over the weekend, I re-plumbed the laundry utility sink. I am so lucky that I had a father who taught me things that many people never have the chance to learn -- sweating copper pipe fittings was one of them.
