We’re officially in what I call The Dead Zone. Yesterday I finished up The Day Job for 2017. I won’t be going back until 01.03.2018. Kind of weird.
So, with the major holidays over (we’re too old to do much for New Year’s Eve), I have four whole days that are just mine. No rushing around to do any special shopping, no social obligations . . . just peace and quiet. Well, other than the fact that it’s still deer season. But even that is winding down.
What to do with these four days? I think Daisy Doodle needs to start some serious training. So far I’ve only worked on trying to get her to NOT jump on people. It’s a work in progress. And, I can now get her to go straight into her crate because she knows treats are given when she goes in it. “Sit” is hit and miss with her. I really need to start training her on the invisible fence. I’m sure she’ll love exploring the yard without me always watching over her. We play a lot together, but she needs to explore on her own too.
My 2018 reading list is planned. I only have one prompt not nailed down. That’s because it’s a book published in 2018 . . . and obviously we aren’t there yet.
For now, I’ll just get some general chores done around the house and enjoy all of the quiet time.
I might have to have some bacon today too. It IS National Bacon day (started in 1997) after all.
Peace, Love & Rest
