Swish Swash & Snooze

As I write this, it's Tuesday afternoon and I'm sitting on the couch with two pups and a peppermint mocha, looking at the Christmas tree covered in pretty lights.

Bug's warm little butt is snuggled next to me and she's got me thinking.  Decorating is hard work.  A nap sounds good.

Technically, I'm still sick and rest is the best thing.  So I'll finish my peppermint mocha and nap to the sound of swish-swashing laundry, and snoozing pups.

Meanwhile, in the kitchen there's a homemade apple pie cooling and a loaf of smooch bread the first rise.  More on those another day.  Right now there's a Santa blanket and a big couch, calling my name.

    Nothing better in the world than having a nap while snuggling with a pup or a cat.

    1. Sure, why not? Life is short, I say enjoy the heck out of it whilst we can.

      I agree, they love to snuggle. Makes it hard to get up and get things done sometimes, but that's okay too.

      Cheers and boogie boogie.

  3. Hahaha! I love the 'dear husband' note... Perfectly legit. Christmas lights rule...

    Decorating sure is hard work. But it's fun, too. Especially when you get the Christmas wonderland up and running.

    1. I love when it's done and I get to sit on the couch and drink something warm and look at the lights.

      Do you do that? So relaxing.

  4. Is there really any bad news associated with a game box? Yeah, you can tell I care about them, huh? Whereas my son would beg to differ. :)

    1. I can tell that you don't care about them. Which is understandable if you're not into games.

  6. So show us the chocolate cream pie and talk about something different! Sounds as though you have been energetic enough for a sick person, a nap is a good idea.

    2. I meant to ask... what is the crust on the cream pie. Is their a lemon one lurking somewhere ?

      Delete
    3. Funny you should say lemon, I just asked my husband tonight if he wanted a lemon pie.

      The crust in that pie is flour, non-hydrogenated shortening, sugar and water. I'm still working out the kinks on the crust though. The filling for that pie was Holly Sinclair's chocolate filling.
