A blog post about my day....
Starting my holiday right now! I just rolled out of bed at 9:28 a.m. Yes, much later than norm. I actually woke up from with my natural body alarm at 6:45 a.m. and rolled over and wished for more sleep. Nothing! LOL! I tossed and turned and my mind whirled....I finally got up and headed for the kitchen to grab a cup of Joe and went back to bed just to watch Youtube videos. I think I went through all the glass blowing videos there are on Youtube so what should it be....Well, if you surf YouTube, you know you can start with one subject and end up with something completely different....From T@B travel trailers to Tiny Houses!
Sipping on instant coffee because I am out of my beloved French Roast Pods for the Keurig, I slipped into a dream word of tiny cottages and micro houses on YouTube. I honestly have always dreamed of having a tiny cabin in the backwoods of the Bastrop pines. I have a dozen books on tiny houses, shelters and cabins and even dreamed of building a studio or small structure on my own land. I think the furthest I got on that dream was converting an old outhouse, left here by the original owner, into a rain shed. It sits abandoned and deteriorating in the shade garden as the spiders and other creatures have taken refuge in it. LOL! Here's a pic...
When I watch YouTube videos, I'm always amazed at the ingenuity of people. How people take what they have and make it work for them. Creating and forming ordinary objects into something beautiful, useful and meaningful to them. So cool! Watching these videos also stirs my imagination. To be able to pull out paper and a pen and think...dream of the possibilities is so exciting and fascinating to me. I may not have the knowledge to build the things I dream up, but again, how cool is it to try something new. Just thinking and jabbering....Just inspired this morning.
The last couple of days I've tried to find a place to go to escape and create...The beach...all booked up, cabins at state parks...gone...even cottages and Bed and Breakfast...full! Lesson learned...You gotta start early reserving these precious places of relaxation and respite during the holidays!
So to not be outdone by the hoards...camping it is! In the shade garden at my house! Why not right! I may be crazy and God knows I know you probably think I am, but I am having the best time blogging, playing cards and taking a nap as the rain hits the top of the tent!
|OK, It says it takes two people to set this up...Can it be done my me alone????|
|Who made these instructions! Really!!!|
|OK, so maybe they were right. The poles do need to go on the grommets!|
|OK, the throw pillow may be overkill! Bahahahahahaha!|
|Only bringing the essentials! So glad the wireless internet reaches out here! Yahooooo!|
|Ready! All I need is a campfire! Or Not!|
|Buzzy wondering what in the name of Sister Mary Theresa I'm doing!|
|AHHHHHH, time to relax....Just in time for the rain storm!|
Wish You Were Here! Hope it doesn't flood! LOL!
