I like wandering the back roads of our area.
I like looking at the clock and seeing that it's not even 11:00 a.m. and I've accomplished a lot and if I want to accomplish more, I can.
I like moving things around in a room to find the sweet flow to it. The Husband and Molly the Cat, not so much. The Husband doesn't care for all the lifting, carrying, pushing, and pulling. I tell him it's exercise. Missy Girl simply dislikes the change, at first.
I wish I could do all the moving with my mind. Isn't there a term for that?
Yesterday I decided to move my sewing stuff to the other side of L Studio, and, in so doing, I discovered the fabric for my tunic that I've been wanting to sew for two years, but couldn't because, yeah, I had no idea where the material had gone. Hee-hee.
I like the all-of-a-sudden, off-the-top-of-our heads, impromptu moments with the Husband. The other day I was throwing stuff in the green organic waste can when my eyes glanced onto a couple of turned over plastic buckets and wondered how they might sound. Tap, tap, bong, bong. Ah-ha!
Yooo-hooo! I popped my head into the open sliding door to the house. "Come check this out."
The Husband gladly distracted himself from washing the breakfast dishes. I demonstrated, then gave him my stick. Within seconds, he was looking for another stick.
As he searched the pile of recently cut branches, I moved the two plastic buckets and a metal basin to the other side of the yard, away from our neighbor's window. No need to wake up their baby. On the way, I found a metal three tier tray stand.
And just like that, the Husband was jamming on his makeshift drum set.
13 THINGS FOR DECEMBER
I like to make lists when I'm serious about accomplishing things. Here's what I want to start and/or complete this month, in no particular order:
• Bake biscotti or Russian tea cakes
• Make a junk journal
• Figure what to create with the county fair ribbons I've earned
• Start a family scrapbook for Older Brother
• Bake Kraut Veklen, a recipe a friend gave me to try
• Build one planter box
• Sew curtains for the upstairs hallway
• Draft a picture book with the ABC creatures
• Assemble notes, postcards, letters, and such to decoupage on the hallway wall
• Turn broken ceramic pots into one or more planters
• Scatter wildflower seeds in the front and back yards
• Sew me a much-needed tunic
