I will be off for the next 2 weeks while I recover from a little fun with knives and body parts, aka surgery.

Until then, stay healthy.

Time on my hands

I am on vacation then I go on medical leave from work.

After the holidays, I will have time to fill. Frankly, that’s a little terrifying. I am someone who lines up things to do on a never ending list.

I get that the first two weeks after my surgery, I’ll be tired and Netflix will be my greatest friend after my bed.

Then there are the other four weeks.

I have ideas like writing and crafting.

But for the first time, I’m wondering what it would be like to not have a check list. Am I brave enough to go into such uncharted territory?

Am I brave enough to cope with the consequences if I like it?

I think I’m going to find out.

Until next time, stay healthy.

Things I didn’t think I’d say

Our puppy is now over 1 year old. I wouldn’t call her a dog yet as she still is very puppish. Now, she isn’t the first pup we’ve had but I find it odd that I’m am saying things I’ve never said before.

Things like:

No, do not bite the car tires.

Stop the cars.

The cat does not want to play with you.

Stop licking the toilet paper, I just changed the roll.

That’s not another dog, that’s your reflection.

Of course, this may lead you to believe she is a little slow on the uptake, but lately she’s been standing by the door when we go to bed and as soon as we get up to open the door for her to go out, she jumps up on the bed and picks her spot to sleep.

I guess a new pup can teach an old human new tricks, and it’s us who are a little slow.

Until next time, stay healthy.

Inertia

You know what it means. It means that when you are already up and doing things, then you can do more things.

But sit down and watch a show, and ‘boom’ you’re sitting down for the rest of the night.

Unless an external force acts upon you. Sadly not even letting the dog in and out can keep me in motion for long enough to stay in motion.

Being able to shop online means I don’t even have to go out for that any more. It is a hermit’s delight.

But doesn’t get house work done.

Hmmm, maybe I’ll see if I care after this show is finished:D

Until next time, stay healthy.

Life hack

I received a health tip in my app that recommended I have a bottle of cold water next to my bed so that I can have something cold to drink without getting up.

They obviously don’t live with unruly animals.

I tried it. Once.

One of our cats spent the night biting the plastic until he punctured it then he knocked it on the floor so the dog could bite through it the rest of the way and I could wake up to a puddle of water in the middle of the night.

To be fair, the same cat knocked over the glass of water I tried next.

I think I will get up and get a drink if I need one.

Until next time, stay hydrated.

Sugar Season

Halloween is over and Thanksgiving is fast approaching.

Which means our sugar food group will now switch from candy to fresh cookies.

Hmmm, cookies.

I have to say I love thin sugar cookies, no icing, like my mom makes.

Second, a very close second, are gingerbread cookies.

What is your favorite cookie?
