Today the local schools were closed so I didn’t have to get up at the crack of dawn to ride shotgun as my daughter Tory drove herself to school. I slept in . . . until 10 am! I’ve been recovering from a nasty allergic reaction to “something” and it’s taken a lot out of me, never mind that my face looked like a melted wax mask for 3 solid days.
Anyway, when I finally did get up I made chocolate chip scones and watched the birds at the feeder. And started the first of seven loads of laundry. But this wasn’t the fun stuff I did today.
Today, I declared it a design day and created some new vignettes around my house.
Some are complete like this one.
And this one.
But some are works in progress.
I love spending time fiddling around with my stuff when I’m “trapped” in the house. I find it relaxing and creative; the process usually keeps a smile on my face for hours. Simply put, it makes me very happy!
Of course, I did go outside and shovel for an hour or so. My car and bird visitors needed swept-from-snow areas in which to hang out. And I have an almost-fetish that I have to shovel/sweep my front porch until it’s spotless. But that surely wasn’t the fun stuff I did today.
How about you? Did you do something special for yourself?
