for new projects and adventures, because unless you're one of those individuals, who actually likes a cold, wet, barren landscape; there is nothing to do outdoors..
I have been doing some "house cleaning" of sorts. I sold off the extra bunnies and chickens. And I put the pellet stove and corner sink on craigs list. Today I am taking a huge bag of unwanted clothes and toys to the Once Again Shop. So, the closets are cleaned out.
And now what? I am thinking of starting a new painting. I got my dress dummy down from the attic to, perhaps, make a few dresses. (Have you ever noticed how hard it is to find just a regular, everyday house dress? You just can't find them anymore!) I could always re- grout the kitchen tile (I keep saying I'm going to do this....and I will...eventually) But I need a new job or project or adventure.
I can't really get a job job because of the kids. I don't want just a job anyway. I want something half way interesting. If I am going to leave my nice warm house and go out in the cold and snow there better be a darn good reason for it! So....what? What to do? What to do?
What do you do when you feel at loose ends? How do you find your next adventure? I really want to know!
In the meantime, Happy Guy Fawkes Day! Today is the day the English celebrate the failure of a plot to blow up Parliament and assassinate King James I by burning one of the plotters in effigy. (Those crazy Brits!)
Our friend Karen is from England, and celebrates every year by hosting a bonfire. I've never been, so we'll bundle up and go join the festivities this evening.
Hope your evening is wonderful..............
