Saturday Ramblings

Damn good thing the weekend is here. It's a beautiful day outside and I've lots to accomplish. It seems I can never finish my projects. Yes I realize procrastination plays a small role...ok a large role but I'm hopeful todays chores will be completed in a timely manner.

There was a place and time I lived for staying busy. I was so overwhelmed with projects and social committments that others figured I never slept. But I lived for this...its what kept me alive. And now...not so much. I keep busy and sometimes overwhelm myself. But I've learned, especially after last September, that I occassionally need serious down time. And this down time allows me to recharge my batteries, clear my head and reduce stress levels.

This weekend its just me and the dog. The family went away this weekend and will return on Sunday. Yes I miss them already and wish I would've went along, but I needed my down time. So the dog and I enjoyed breakfast this morning, her with dog food and a treat and I with a bagel with cream cheese. I politely asked if she'd share her breakfast and I was quickly awarded with "The Look". I'm now certain the missus has been teaching the dog some of her tricks.

After completing my chores today, I have a guys movie day all planned. I plan on watching Saving Private Ryan followed by Braveheart finishing with either The Outlaw Josey Wales or The Dog Whisperer. We'll see just how much of "The Look" the missus has taught this dog.

Have a great weekend and make sure to check out all the NEW links in the blogroll. Not quite a gazillion added yet but last count was a bazillion. I'm not finished adding them keep checking back for new ones. And as always, I'm sure you won't be disappointed with my selections for you, my dear readers.

good for you. I love an all day movie day.

Kat said...

ooh, I hope you had your "guy movie day!" Braveheart, Saving Private Ryan...two fo my favorite movies!! have you seen "Gladiator"??? Also a good one.

Yeah, I'm weird. I love guy movies (action/adventure/blowing stuff up, car chases, lol) and hate stereotypical "chick flicks" with a passion, lol.

Reminds me... I wanted to see a movie tonight too, and got caught up in a book and forgot, drat! Ah well...maybe tomorrow. :)

Being a 'missus" I would have opted for a different genre but then....I never get downtime..:o)
Hope you enjoy your weekend and thanks for adding my link to your roll. I appreciate it.

Good for you Dazd!! I hope you had a great weekend. :) Did the dog behave?? Any looks?? I've watched Saving Private Ryan a dozen times, and will watch it a dozen more. Do you have the DVD set of Band of Brothers?? THAT takes up more than a weekend, but totally worth it.

Hope it was a good one for you Dazd. Whatever is there to do, will still be there to do. Big deal.

Meleah - So do I. Maybe while you're battling the 1930's disease you can have an all day movie day.

Kat - I don't have the movie Gladiator on DVD yet...but its coming. I hope Bear is doing well. Keep us updated!

Marloes - I appreciate your addition as well. Take some down time soon, seriously.

barista - I don't have Band of Brothers yet but it's coming with Gladiator! And yes the dog behaved...

Kat said...

Bear is doing better... still weak but ok. :) He'll be alright in the long run, thank God!

Y'all remember to stay nice & hydrated this summer...drink lotsa water & gatorade!

That's what's been wrong with me lately! I need a battery recharge. Except all of my movies would be from the horror category.
