Lazy Days

Though the dog days of summer may be but a fleeting memory of the past, there is still something so sweet about lazy days at home. Today has been one of those days for me. I haven't done anything remarkable, yet the day has somehow held a special quality for me. Perhaps it is because I feel pretty normal today, with little nausea, a healthy appetite, and good energy. It's been a lovely day. Here's what I've done today:

1. Got up at 6:30 and took some anti-nausea medicine.
2. Watched The Today Show.
3. Paid some bills.
4. Wrote 5 thank you notes.
5. Read part of a book that I later decided didn't deserve my attention.
6. Bathed 2 of the 3 dogs.
7. Did one load of laundry.
8. Put clean sheets on my bed.
9. Made a huge pot of baked potato soup (thank you for the idea, Whitney!)
10. Cleaned out the refrigerator.
11. Rested and enjoyed a cup of hot chocolate :)
12. Took a walk with Gladys.
13. Strength-trained with the Bowflex.
14. Replied to some emails.
15. Snuggled with my husband on the couch.

So, you see, it was a beautiful day on Pleasant Drive :)

The happiest days of our lives come in such un-preposterous packages.. Softly, quietly, and fill our hearts with happiness .. like slow dance!

A beautiful day indeed. I love days like that myself. *sigh*

And I still get tickled every time that I see your "babies," because I really think they are related to my Allie Girl.;)

I'm glad you had a lovely day at Pleasant Drive.:)

God Bless,

I'm so glad to hear that you had a good day. It seems pretty productive to me, not lazy at all. Boy Gladys sure has gotten big!

Looks like a pleasant day, indeed. I am so glad you were feeling good! I know it has to be a rarity these days - as it is for me, too. We should get together and wallow in our sickies.

You gotta love days like that! Although you weren't too cooked, gave the dogs a bath and worked out! Sounds pretty productive to me!
