A Peaceful Weekend

This weekend was so peaceful and relaxing.  I really wanted my sweet girl to get some rest and get the remainder of the histamine out of her system.  She is doing better but still needs to be on the Benadryl for a while longer since she is still a bit itchy.  Otherwise, she is her sweet, sassy self and got lots of rest this weekend.  This meant that I got to rest, too.  I am happy to say that we are back to sleeping during the night.    Generally she just wakes up once, takes her next dose of Benadryl and then goes right back to sleep.  She probably just thinks she is getting up for a midnight cheese snack.  

I totally got to stitch this weekend.  It was so nice to get back to relaxing and watching the needle go back and forth.  After Leisl went to bed last night (she puts herself to bed) I put on Netflix and watched a short marathon of the British comedy, The IT Crowd.  This show cracks me up and I find myself just laughing out loud.  The cast is just perfect.  I truly love British comedies, in general. So I found myself laughing and stitching.  

Liesl and I took our usual walks this weekend.  I am now thinking that I need to bring a book with me.  Liesl has her very favorite bench on edge of the lake.  She is now trying to stay on my lap longer and longer.  I think she is just comfy with the sun on her back, resting on her momma's lap, watching the ducks and the boats go by.  It is hard to get her to leave.  So I think I will just start bringing a bag with a book, a thermos of coffee and some water for Liesl.  We can set up a little camp on the bench and just relax.  It is very peaceful there.  It is just that we are not getting very much walking done, which was kind of the point of the whole thing.  

My best friend has been out of town and we were able to catch up on the phone tonight.  She asked me how everything was going and I was so happy to say that things are boring right now, thank goodness.  I appreciate the ordinary and love it when things are peaceful.  That does not mean that I do not enjoy special times and celebrations, but I love when life is a little boring.  Tonight is just so peaceful.  The television is off. There is a slight summer breeze coming through the window.  The only sound is of my typing and soft puppy snores.  I love it when it is like this.

Well, I think I will go put a kiss on Liesl's sweet little head.

Glad that Liesl is on the mend from her ordeal and things are settling into a normal routine. You are right..."boring" is good much of the time, sometimes our lives have way too much drama. Happy stitching this week..........

I'm so happy that Leisl is feeling better.

I think it is a wonderful idea to set up camp on the bench.
