The best st. patricks day ever

My days been so relaxed. I even had an afternoon nap for about 3 hours.
It was bliss. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
I did achieve a few goals too though like eating healthily, doing some self care activities, and reading.
I watched a little tv too with mom and dad, we watched this sorta weird wildlife show, and Irelands got talent.
Now its time again to catch up on blogs and email before I watch some more tv.
I just love relaxing days, don’t you?

st. patricks day

happy st. patricks day everyone.

Hope you are all doing well and you’ll have a great day today.

as for me, I am chilling. doing absolutely nothing not going anywhere or to any parade today.

just hanging out at my parents house. the weather is meant to be bad anyway, there is meant to be snow flurries and its supposed to get down in to minus 0 temps.

I slept really well last night. I didn’t go to bed until 1 AM because I was watching tv on my phone.

I was watching discovery ID, I watched a show called the 80’s the deadliest decade, and it was really good. I like documentaries about true crime.

So 1 AM when I went to sleep, and then I woke again at 6:30 because nitro was up walking around wanting to go out.

My dad let him out, I went back to sleep and didn’t wake again until 9 AM.

I just had breakfast, a nice healthy one at that. I had wheetabix with blueberries on top…yummy.

Off to check email now then read for a while.

Have a great day everyone!

I try to write
posts but I don’t think I always succeed at it.
I try to keep my readers interested in my blog, so they will keep coming back.
who knows if I actually do a good job of it lol. I suppose I try to and that’s all that matters.
and now a little verse for you

emotions captivating
spell binding
leave me breathless
sometimes in a mess
but always very reflective
