Todd made gumbo.
I finished up the Christmas decorations.
Gabbi tromped around on Lizzie's new bed. (was found... but was supposed to be coming from Santa Claus)
And finally, and very deliberately, I sat on the couch and tried to do nothing. That does NOT come naturally for me!
In fact, I found it so hard to do that I finally got up and grabbed a book I've been wanting to get in to. I am not much of a reader. I like the "growth" books that I can take and read a page or two at a time, and if bored, put it down and come back without missing anything.
This one helped me find my strength. It came with a password that sent me to their website where I had to take a 35 minute test online to see what category my interests and predilections put me in. I was pretty shocked at the results. You should consider taking it yourself. I am looking at a new direction for my life in 2012, and I need to know if I am in my strength zone, and who I need around me to support me the best. This book helped.
As for Lizzie, we've had this bed since Canton (the second time). And this dog has NEVER laid in it until today!
I just knew she'd like it if she tried it. And she was soooo enjoying that warm little bed. Until....
Along came Ellie!!And so much for Lizzie's private time! But, they do look pretty snuggly!
Until Ellie felt like she should reposition Liz and pick her up.
Poor, Poor, Lizzie!
Hey, that might work!! E just brought her on over a blanket and a pillow and joined the Lizster.
and I think fed her a little left over ham from our Thanksgiving lunch.
as Todd and I were strongly encouraging a nap, this is the closest we got to that.
They told us they'd take a nap in the chair.
But, I think it became more of a spectator sport, as they watched the squirrels playing outside, and even the ducks as they are flying south for the winter, and landing in our pond out back.
All in all, it was a pretty relazing afternoon. I really am trying to make a concerted effort to NOT do something at all times. My mind has gotten a little woozie lately trying to keep up with my crazy, busy life.
And since I've now had TWO doctors tell me I just need to slow down, I am really going to try.
