I have a 4-day weekend so at long last I have some time to be lazy ... after a very busy holiday season with craft shows and many special orders (mostly for co-workers) plus I made most of our Christmas gifts this year ... about 40 clay ornaments for family and friends. Whew! We had a nice dinner on New Year's Day with some family members, and I finished up the LAST two special orders yesterday ... so now I have time to relax!
I've learned over the years that in January I NEED to take some time off from claying to replenish my energy, and to enjoy some things I love to do that I don't have time for before Christmas, namely reading and knitting. I finished one book last night and have another one to start on today, plus I got some yarn at Michael's to make a baby blanket for some friends who are expecting a little girl. Isn't this pretty?
Our doggie is a great role model for lounging around and taking naps. I had to interrupt her napping to get some photos 'cause when she hears the camera, the eyes open. She has the funniest ears and sometimes will sleep with one up in the air. We always wonder how she can do that.
OK, gotta get back to our naps now. Zzzzzzzzzz.
