This is wonderful. It is 1 pm and I am sitting here after a leisurely morning. Quiet time with God happens early for me but that doesn’t mean I have to get out of bed! Not while I am on holidays and a guest in my sister’s home. After all, I wouldn’t want to wake everyone else up early. So after some reading and reflecting, I tucked myself back under the covers for a bit more sleep.
Finally got up around 9. Made some instant coffee – pretty bad substitute for a coffee addict but what can one do in an emergency situation in a house of mostly non-coffee addicts? I needed my fix by that time of the morning and it did quite well. Toasted a bagel around 10:30 and spent most of the morning chatting with my niece. She is fun to talk to.
Chantelle has a tiny little dog – Ginger. Ginger has been getting into all sorts of trouble lately so may actually be ill. He goes to the vet this afternoon. I hope he is not seriously ill since I think Chantelle would be heartbroken. She actually bought this little zebra striped sweater for him. I am not really into putting sweaters on dogs but this one is sort of cute and since I really like Chantelle – what else can I say? A sweater on my dog, Maisy, would likely be chewed to shreds in about 2 minutes. I had to buy a chain link type collar for Maisy. She does not like wearing accessories!
Now it is almost lunch time. I guess I will eat and then decide what strenuous activity I will do for the afternoon. A bike ride would probably be a good idea. I may just decide to sit and read. I could also see myself finding a good bookstore to browse in, or maybe a store with some good sale going on. This is my favorite kind of vacation.
