Refreshing Yellow

In the early morning, I did yoga soon after waking up. Since I didn't yoga yesterday, my body becomes inflexible again. It was a total disappointment.
I felt as if my heart were in a box.

Then I started to prepare a lemon cake. Yoga is such a good excuse to eat pastries. Take one lemon from the fridge and pour hot water over it to remove the waxes. Once lemon zest is prepared, the fresh smell fulfilled the kitchen.
The morning sunshine was gently penetrating from the small kitchen window.
And I breathed deeply. Now I feel my body and heart connects once again.

早朝、起きぬけにヨガを。昨日やらなかったせいか、体が硬くてがっかり。
心まで箱に詰め込まれた気分。

次にレモンケーキの準備。ヨガはお菓子づくりのちょうどいい言い訳。
冷蔵庫からレモンを取り出して、熱湯をかけてワックスを取り除く。レモンゼストが準備できると、キッチンにはレモンの新鮮な香りがいっぱい。キッチンの小さな窓から日光が優しいく入ってくる。そして深呼吸。もう一度、体と心が繋がった気分。
