A LAZY DAY....


I WAS out running errands all morning long.....driving here, driving there...
getting things DONE...



stopped at a deli for a BAKED POTATO and GREEN SALAD...
ate 'til i was nice and full.....
begin thinking of all the things i NEEDED to get done.....
but...*yawn....uh, oh....i'm full and starting to get SLEEPY....
BOTH of my new magazines have ORGANIZE all over them.....
so.....i sure have several area of my cottage that NEED ORGANIZATION....
"i need to do THAT today", i thought...

uhhh, but then I saw THIS....

AND, this......
my electric mattress cover...oooooo, it makes the bed so warm.....
and it's so COLD out today.....

well....maybe just for an hour....ONE hour of sleep isn't gonna make the world quit turning...
SO....this is what I did for a large part of the afternoon...
AND IT WAS SO SO SO GOOD !!!

and, OF COURSE, I woke up HUNGRY...

oh ! honey !!

I hope your day is blessed...love,bj

Beverly said...

You were taking a nap while I was on my first day back at work! Hummm? I need to start hanging out with you.

I love apple pie with sharp cheddar melted on top.

Kathleen Grace said...

I took an afternoon nap the other day and couldn't get tpo sleep that night! Seems I can sleep in the daytime or the night time but not both. Followed by apple pie? That sounds like a perfect day:>)

If I take a nap I can't sleep well at night.
I hope you have a nice day:)

A nap is always a good thing. I've had a few of them, here at the lake,this past week!

Sounds like your day was delightful, BJ!

Rosie's Whimsy said...

Morning, BJ!

Sounds like a perfect day! Hope Tuesday is just as grand :-)

JyLnC said...

I adore apple pie and this is my kind of day. I like to read about organization but the doing is a little more problematic. :>)

tardevil said...

I hope you enjoyed your long winter's nap! I've never heard of cheese on apple pie, but I could eat cheese on chocolate! Hope you're having a good new year!

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Girl, that day looks like HEAVEN! I might just go back to bed after reading this! LOL! See what you started, BJ??? ;-)

XO,

Sheila

Linda said...

Smilingsal said...

Make that vanilla ice cream on my apple pie, BJ. I like the way you think.

Of course I remember! Thanks for visiting my blog -- I'm very new at this, and no one except the people who already know me really well read it, but I think it's so much fun! Hope you are doing fantastic, and I hope to see you soon!

Stacey said...

Now you are going and being a bad influence! No, I have to admit that I napped for an hour in the chair yesterday. What else should we do when it's freezing outside?

Penny @ The Comforts of Home/Lavender Hill Studio said...

Now that sounds like the perfect day! Especially the apple pie with cheese!!
Hugs,
Penny

Helen said...

For me it's potato salad - and I made a dish yesterday! Not a good thing (though delicious) because I ate way too much .... tomorrow is D Day! Or W-I Day if you will.

Debbie from NJ said...

Good for you BJ! Ahh, a nap in a warm comfy bed. Glad you enjoyed it sweetie. It's going to rain and snow here in central NJ, so maybe that might not be a bad idea. Hummmm......

PEA said...

Not fair, I had to get up early, start my car in -2F temperatures and go bring my mom grocery shopping...I would have much rather been doing what you did! hehe I'm hoping that tomorrow I don't have to go out at all and I'll be able to enjoy a lazy day as well:-) xoxo

Terrie's Lil' Piece of Serenity said...

Sounds like the perfect day to me!!
Hugs, Terrie

salmagundi said...

The idea of a nap sounds so good, but I never got the concept of cheese on apple pie. Guess I need to try it again, but does it really beat pie & ice cream? Sally

jeanne said...

Mmmmmm. I took a nap this afternoon too. It felt so good and I have a gazillion things to do. Your post is so cute and perfect for making one lazy. It doesn't take much for me.LOL.

Hugs...Jeanne

FarmHouse Style said...

Ooooo, but that sounds like heaven right now. I have been going full blast all day. Maybe this is how I will spend tomorrow!

ShabbyInTheCity said...

What an example! Now since I look up to you so much...I'm going to have to go do exactly what you did! Shhh! Don't tell anybody...

Ginger said...

It sounds like you had a perfect day. I would love a piece of warm apple pie, can you send some my way? lol. I noticed everything is about getting organized this month, even when I went into Walmart, they have the plastic totes out everywhere. Not my idea of fun though.

Twice as Nice said...

What is it about eating and feeling tired? On the weekends when I have a lot to do I won't let myself eat too much because it does make me tired. There nothing better then a nap on a cold or rainy day.
I have NEVER had apple pie with cheese. Never could figure out why anyone would want to! lol

Twice as Nice said...

P.S. LOVE your music Celine is our girl.

Deb said...

Baked Potato, Green Salad, and a Nap sounds good to me! The Apple Pie with cheese is not bad either!

BJ

Here in NY it is so gray and cold...great nap weather! Hee-hee! Glad you snuck one in!

Picket said...

That sounds like a great way to spend a cold Winter's day BJ...That apple pie was just the ticket after all that hard work resting! lol lol have a great week my friend!

nikkicrumpet said...

I'm with you...I love a good nice cozy nap during the day...and the world didn't stop turning for even an instant! YAY you for having a nice lazy day!

Meggie said...

Nothing like a nice nap to perk me up for the rest of the day. You're a lady after my own heart, BJ.

Theresa @ Take A Sentimental Journey said...

Hi BJ,the nap sounds like a wonderful ideal to me . I am so tired.

Thank you so much for your precious prayers and concern for me.You are just wonderful !
