my two year old lab mix, always by my side, guardian angel dog, has developed a bad habit of waking me up…with the sun…which iN the case of Summer means, I have been getting my morning wake up whimper at the crack of dawn….This does not jive well with the other end of my day…punctuated by teenagers intent on SEEING the sun come up…and though they never make it…they do SO try and thus I have been up past 2am most nights this week…drifting off to the distant sound of giggling from across the hall…and UP at dawn.
The good news is that the sofa is super comfy and so after I let Charlie out, made coffee, and ate a balance bar…I went back to sleep…this morning until 10:30!!! when I woke MYSELF up out of a nightmare, in which i was trying to board and airplane but forgot my suitcase which had my passport…the passport nightmare is my most recurrent.
Thus began my VERY LAZY DAY.
The weather is perfect lazy day weather…mid 70’s and wet wet wet..overcast…so I did not have that usual twinge of guilt for missing a perfectly beautiful summer day. I started off in shorts but found a bin under my bed of “looser” clothes and changed into a pair of cute sweatpants my sister in law gave me for my birthday…last year?
Cooper woke me up chomping at the bit to go to the hardware store, as he, had hatched plans with his Dad, to build a SAFE (basically a box with locks) for all of his prized possessions. Let me tell you..the materials for the safe set me back 50 bucks so it better work!
WE worked on the box until my drill ran out of juice…it is already crooked..and I keep telling hiM we will make it work with caulk.
”A little caulk, a little paint..makes a carpenter look like what he or she AIN”T!”
The girls (Phoebe has an out of town visitor for the week) slept until their usual rising time of NOON and have feasted on pancakes and junkfood most of they day. I did fix them a lunch at 3:30 of cheese dogs and tater tots…downed by cokes in the new mason jar sippy cups and followed by Swedish Fish…
….and they shuffled back to their cozy pots on the sofas, were joined by Cooper, done with the Box-Building for the day, and last check they are in the middle of their 3rd horror movie.
I keep getting distracted by my my lap top…Pinterest, then a little laundry, and I found out that
House Beautiful is also “obsessed by light aqua”!!!! They GET ME!

I just looked outside, thought it was 5pm but my laptop says 8:08 pm so I guess I lost a few hours there…oh well, hours to go before I sleep and Dad is bringing home my oldest son from camp and Chinese for dinner!!!
I love a LAZY DAY!!!!
