Not so eager now...

Yesterday I was eager to get dressed and take Tyke out for a long walk, even though it was drizzling. Today I am not so eager and I'm still sitting here in my bathrobe. It is a different day with different ambitions, or should I say, it is a day with no ambitions at all? I did have some earlier this morning, but since then I have been back to bed and slept a few hours and now that I'm up again, I don't feel like doing anything special at all. 

I do have to say that my knee is bothering me and that is just from lying in bed with it. I must have overdone it yesterday and am paying the price for it now. It is a good excuse not to overdo it today. 

It's the same kind of gray and dreary day it was yesterday and it looks like it's going to rain any minute. Maybe this won't bother me after I've had some more coffee. That can make a difference in my attitude. Coffee as a rule does perk me up. However, I do think I'm ready for some sunshine now. That would motivate me to go outside and enjoy the fresh air. I still remember what it felt like to get wet yesterday and it took Tyke a long time to get dry.

There will be speed skating on television again this afternoon and I will probably watch that. I will also change my bed and wash the dirty sheets. Clean sheets will make it extra special to go to bed tonight. As if I need an excuse for that, right? I always like going to bed at night. That's one of my pleasures. I do have a guilty few. 

Tyke's trying to get my attention and I can't ignore him, so I'm simultaneously petting him and typing this. It is tough to do. As a matter of fact, it is impossible. I'll have to get dressed and take him for a short outing. I think that will satisfy him. We'll go around the sopping wet fields. 

I hope you all have a great day!

Stay warm and Tyke will be so happy!

We have been having sun so maybe the sun is coming your way!

I used to work for a solicitor and one of her luxuries was having clean sheets every night (washed by other people) which seems to me to be the height of luxury. It is a very nice feeling having fresh clean sheets against the skin....

Bev, it would be nice if the sunshine were coming our way. I would welcome it with open arms.

If someone else would wash my sheets, I would have clean ones every night too. That would be easy. It's when you have to wash and dry them yourself that it gets hard.

Look after that knee, definitely an excuse to rest today. And this weather makes us want to stay in and keep warm.

Did the medical people tell you to put a pillow under it when you sleep? It does seem to help with pain in the knee.

Thinking of you!
