A Quiet Day

“Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer's day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.” -- J. Lubbock

DD got a leather tooling kit for Christmas and spent all weekend making stuff. I have to admit that I'm a little surprised at how well she's doing! I think after a few more practices, she's going to have another type of creation to offer on her DistinctivelyDD store. I'm very proud of her. I'd post pictures, but everything is behind the bedrooms and, oddly enough, the rest of my family is sleeping.

It was an incredibly quiet day yesterday. DH messed around with our water softener (it's still having issues -- we discovered that there is a block of salt at the bottom about 8" thick that shouldn't be there ... we're trying to dissolve it slowly with warm water, but it's a very time-consuming business) but otherwise just sort of lazed around the house. DD tooled leather. I worked on the LASR/WC website. The dog snoozed, or played with her duck (she got a duck that honks instead of squeaks for Christmas and she LOVES it). I did take her for a walk, despite the cold, but really it was a lazy day here.

How was your weekend?


You Are Restless

You're never one to feel too settled in your life - you're always looking to shake things up.

You are lively and energetic. Even when you feel done for the day, you usually still do something else.

You are enthusiastic and optimistic. Many things sound good to you, and you are reluctant to rule options out.

You are quick to respond. You sometimes get a little tired of waiting for everyone else.

About 75% correct...

My day was quiet as well.

I'm looking forward to seeing DD's creations.

You Are Imaginative

You are a dreamy, head in the clouds type of person. You love to imagine different worlds and lives.

You use your mind to escape boredom and sadness. You have a rich and delightful inner world.

You are a true romantic, in every sense of the word. You value love, and you have notions of how you want the world to be.

And while you are often buried in your own thoughts, you are also quite selfless. Part of your grand vision involves helping others.

This is 80% accurate.

Have a great Monday.

This sounds like a nice relaxing day. I've had too few of those lately!

Sounds like a lovely day all around. Ooh, can't wait to see your DD's leather tooling products. (Daughter's favorite bracelet is leather.)

You Are Nurturing
You are easy on yourself and others. Life is hard enough without making problems for anyone else.
You believe a little empathy can go a long way in this world. Everyone deserves respect and dignity.
While you are very sympathetic, you are also very shrewd. You never forget your own interests.
You make sure you get everything you need in life. You are cautious about giving too much. Your interests still matter.

Umm, maybe 90%. Everyone else comes before me.

I hope you have a awesome day!

It sounds like you had a good weekend. My whole weekend I kicked back, read a book, went to sleep very late, and my stepdaughter or husband would wake me up pretty early, so now I’m feeling very tired.
