Just eight more hours of work (okay, maybe nine or ten) stand between me and vacation. I am a bit tired from trying to get prepared and leave my office in good shape for my absence. In fact, last night I fell asleep in the middle of writing a post for this very blog. I am really, really tired. However, I am about to face nine, count 'em nine days of sleeping in cuddled up to a small happy dog.
I am looking forward to nine days of bliss. Of counting blessing and recognizing all of the beauty in my life. I am looking so forward to time spent with family and friends. I am looking forward to walks with Liesl on one of the world's most beautiful beaches. I am looking forward to shopping for some pretty things for my house and for working on upgrading the beauty of my house. I love this home and feel so grateful to have found it. I can not think of a more perfect place for me. It is so cozy and really comfy. I love my house.
With Valentine's Day this week I have been thinking about all of the love in my life. I have an amazing circle of friends with whom we often tell each other that we love one another. Life is short and I appreciate knowing that I am loved and telling others how much I care about them. I have my sweet little schnauzer who I adore and who lets me know daily that she loves me.
Speaking of my little Liesl, I had to laugh this week. Liesl does not watch television, ever. Sometimes she will react if she hears a doorbell or bird on television. But she does not look at it. I had to laugh because earlier this week I was watching a rerun of last year's Westminster Dog Show. Liesl was sitting in the most unlady-like fashion, glued to the show. She cracked me up.
Well, I am off to set my alarm for the last time for nine days. I will check in and share any exciting vacation adventures.
