I have the house alone this weekend. The husband is hiking and I tend to be a cool weather hiker. Plus he likes to rough it more than I want to. I did all of that when I was younger. I still enjoy hiking and backpacking, but Fall, Winter, and early Spring are my best times. Plus I have noticed, the weight of the backpack is getting heavier. Really, I need a mule to carry my pack!
I'm home without a vehicle, too - now that we are a 1 car family. I've got everything I need. It's nice to be, just home and I don' have to go anywhere.
I plan to CLEAN! I can clean so much better when the husband is away. Plus I can do it, on my own time and energy level. I clean, then I sit - Get up and clean again - then I sit. I also crank up the music and it makes it like a party! The dog enjoys this time and Susie the car, likes to follow me around and run - she thinks when I clean, it's her play time. Laydee likes to bark at the vacuum cleaner. She'll even try to bite the bag - I end up having to put her out.
I want to do some sewing - get out my sewing machine and just sew.
I tend to collect pretty fabric. Sometimes when I go to a thrift store, I will buy an article of clothing, just for the pretty material. I know, I know...strange. I need to break down the clothing and turn them into usable sewing material.
Actually, I have so many things I want to do and get done, I probably won't be able to get to all of it. Plus there is always room, for distraction. I'll be looking through a box, and something with catch my eye and send me off in another direction. I'm okay with that, too. This is my time.
