Day of Rest


my morning coffee

I took the whole idea of Sunday being a day of rest to
a whole new level today.  I slept late, sat in bed with my
coffee, iPad, cell (and 3 cats) until around 10:00.
Got dressed and moved myself to the couch where I've
been all day long with the exception of making lunch.
And yes, it's been nice!  Kind of a weird, crazy week last week
 with this week promising to be kicked up a notch.  I'm taking
all the boys to the doctor tomorrow for their annual check
ups.  I'm guessing there will be blood work involved. :(
Friday I'm taking them all to the dentist .... so I think I better
give them all haircuts tonight or the doctor won't be 
able to find their eyes or ears tomorrow. haha.....(she says
 as she straightens her Wonder Woman crown).  haha.

  1. That was the perfect day of rest...just what the doctor ordered. Looks like no rest next week. We had a rather busy Sunday, as my dearest was ask to preach today at the church we attended before moving to Villa Ramona. Two of our daughters, a son in law, and a granddaughter went with us. Like old times hearing Dad preach again...I felt like a Pastor's wife again. Good feelings. Sending Hugs and blessings for a good week ahead for you and boys....

  3. You work so hard you need a rest on Sunday.
    Hope it all goes well with the boys.
    I am having a root filling tomorrow . . . . . They've doe the drilling and they now have to do the filling. . . so I will probably have a numb gum again . . . :)
    Talking of haircuts . . . a joke.
    A barber asked a gent how he wanted his haircut.
    He said, "Square at the back right side, natural left side, side burn left on the right but cut off on the left, layered on right, spiky on left, one eyebrow done and one not done, right ear clipped and bleeding and left one not."
    The barber said, "Why on earth have it like that?"
    The gent said, "That's the way you did it last time!" . . . lol

  8. Hi Betsy - well I'm glad you're starting off well rested. Do you do their hair in different order, or do they just accept and one steps up for the pudding bowl look? and gets it over with ... then the blood - oh dear ... still I guess they sort of know what will be happening - just hope all goes as smoothly as is possible. Have a good week! Cheers Hilary

    1. haha...no pudding bowl look...lol...
      They don't care about the order. It seems to be different every time. Harry is the most
      happy to have his cut, though...he hates it long and has been asking for it to be cut for about
      a month now!

  9. Well done for having a properly restful day. I am off work today because I had sedation for my tests. The very nice doctor could find nothing wrong but took samples for testing anyway. So that's good news. In quite other news, autumn has arrived with a rush. Actually I think it was already here last Thursday. It is cool, rainy, windy and dark. Hang about... That was the whole of last summer! Good luck with your week.

    1. It always feels good to have tests come back looking good!
      I'll trade you some heat for some of that coolness! I love autumn.
      I'd rather go from spring to autumn and just skip summer. haha.

  13. I'm a bit late making it here today, but I am glad you had a day of rest on Sunday. We did go out for church, but in the afternoon it was all about resting in the recliner or on the couch. We both took naps. Rest does a body good. ;)
