Let’s Talk About Vacations August 1, 2012Posted by Toy Lady in random stuff.
Did I mention that I’d taken some vacation time last week?
I had so many great plans!
I was going to write a couple of blog posts to fall back on for those evenings when I just don’t have anything coherent to say.
I was going to do some yard work, maybe even split up and re-plant my irises.
I was even considering doing some baking.
Heck, I was going to vacuum and dust upstairs.
And then I realized. It’s my vacation, man.
I should do things I enjoy. Things I want to do, not just things that need to get done.
So, a couple of times, I went back to bed for an hour or so. (After, of course, Peeps had left for work, dog walking was done, the dog was fed, and puppy-kitty treat time was over and the breakfast dishes were washed. Of course.)
I did pick blueberries, not just because it needed to be done, but because I actually enjoy it. Sort of.
I took the dog to the beach. If you want to see something that just radiates joie de vivre, take a dog to the beach. Man, there is very little more joyous than that splash, you know?
I picked some tomatoes. Which led to cooking some bacon. There’s lettuce in the fridge, fear not.
I just have to make some mayonnaise is all – that’s another thing I didn’t get done.
Peeps and I took the dog to the beach again. Jar really likes the beach. Have I mentioned that?
And it’s the perfect time to work on training exercises – like paying attention and not jumping and barking.
So all in all, while I may not have gotten as much accomplished as I’d have liked to, I did do some of the things I enjoy. I got some cooking in, which I’ll tell you about next week. I got a little extra snooze time. The upstairs will get vacuumed (and dusted) eventually. And the Jar got good and wet a couple of times.
It was a decent vacation, all in all, I’d say.
