a little hike and a nap.

when you live in my home,
a staycation is pretty much impossible.
there is always a furry friend that needs something,
a floor to mop,
a countertop to clean,
an errand to run,
clothes to put up, and dishes to wash.
never mind those BIG. house. projects.

even though we took Friday-Monday off together,
we haven't really put the "cation" in "staycation."
we have managed a couple of long naps. (nice!)

today, we went on a hike with two of the doggies.
it was nice, they LOVED it.
we enjoyed it.

and we realized,
that next time,
if we want to feel like we are escaping on a staycation,
the hike needs to be
without the doggies,
in spite of how fun they are.  

i did get a pedi, though, today.
totally worth it.  doing a pedi for my feet is like putting lipstick on a pig.
but even piggies like lipstick, right?

tomorrow is more errand running.
please pray for my daisy, my firstborn sweetie dog.
her mouth (lips?) are swollen, and scabby from scratching--I just discovered this after her grooming yesterday.  she is a month shy of 14.
she hasn't shown she is in pain, has been spicy and happy, and stealing the puppies crunch and growling at her....
but if my lips looked like hers, I would have scabby cold sores all around my smile lines.

poor baby, I can't believe I didn't see this.

this evening,
we are watching football,
blogging, surfing...
gonna jump in the hottube,
and just relax.

as we should.

xoxoxo love to all.


  1. I hope you have a great evening.

  2. Sounds like a perfect ending to the day.

  3. Most of my vacations end up being stay cations. I try to have a mix every day of a chore, a time to read, a dog walk, a time for yoga, make dinner, a time to other words a blend...but I totally hear you. I hope you enjoyed some of your time off.
