Staycation My Way
Staycation Rules that Apply To Me: (your Staycation rules are your very own!)
*No cooking if you don't really want to.
Last night: Don't gag. I tried the veggie burger at Burger King. It was delish. I am not a vegetarian but I am trying very hard to minimize meats for awhile.
*Invited my neighbors over to see the kittens at noon. This left my afternoon free afterwards for a good nap. Invited another friend for coffee at 4 on the porch. Part of my staycation planning means, STAYing at home.
I love staying at home. If someone is late arriving at my house, I am less crabby about it than if I am waiting for them at a coffee shop.
*Swatched. I tried 3 different patterns and yarns before I hit on my next project at 9 pm last night.
The simple ONE ROW lace scarf it is. I'm usually too impatient to swatch. I force the project along. During staycation , I have the time to sit and play with the needles, the yarn, the pattern until I hit it right.
*I ask myself : Is this how I would spend my time on vacation? If the answer is no, I really don't do that thing. I have to protect Staycation fiercely or it won't work. I say to my family: Im on vacation, so Im not doing laundry today. I'm on vacation so Im not grocery shopping today. I even go so far as to refuse to answer the phone......I wouldn't answer it on vacation if I was away.
Today, the foster kittens go back to the shelter. God Speed little Babka and Puddy. You've made it!
Today, Fireman and I are dining al fresco somewhere before the temps go into the 90s and 100s this week.
Today, I'll take more photos when the light is just right, somewhere I normally wouldn't go to take pictures.
Today, I will organize my knit gifts......because it is under 6 months now to Christmas........
