Can You See Me?

Well as you know, we have not been around for over a month! Mum caught a bad case of lazy summer-itis; as a result we took a hiatus. Mum discovered and recommends the following activities for the relief of stress.

1) Hunt for four leaf clovers

2) Visit out of state family

3) On long road trips listen to books on tape

4) Turn off your cell phone

5) Walk and let your mind wander

6) Meditate

7) Read; Mum loves quirky self help books and recommends the Luck Factor – The Four Essential Principals by Dr. Richard Wiseman
For fun the Hobbit – We are still reading this one. Mum has discovered that she is a Hobbit minus the hairy feet.

8) Tell your dog your worries, we can’t fix any of them but you may get some good kisses!

9) Have a cup of tea, with milk and sugar of course

10) Go gold panning in northern Montana. You most likely will not find any gold, but a chair carefully placed in the stream with a bolder foot rest makes an excellent napping spot.

11) Doodle

12) Go to a make up counter and ask for a make over.

13) Get a massage

14) Buy candles

15) Shop at a farmer’s market-buy the great in season fruit.

16) Walk your dog or dogs

17) Take a bubble bath

18) Listen

19) Notice the beauty all around – How can you miss if you live with a pup!

20) Count your blessings
