I promised myself that if I would let myself get on the computer today, I'd have to do something creative with my time instead of sitting around watching YouTube videos or just scrolling through endless Memes on Cheezburger. Yes. I have a problem. I'm rather addicted to the mindless activities that are all around us all the time. If I'm not cruising around on the internet wasting time I tend to be sitting in front of the television wasting time as well. I have hardly done anything creative with my time for months. Sure, I've taken a random photograph here and there, but that takes very little work and of course I'm still quite the amateur when it comes to photographing. I'm still working at getting better, but at the moment, this 'almost' spring thing... that's not helping my creative juices any at all.
I did buy some fabric the other day, thinking that I would spend today working on creating a chair cover for the cat-scratched chair in my living room. It was a very pretty little accent chair, no arms, just kind of a creamy background with a leaf print. My cat Olivia decided that she liked it just as a scratching post, so every morning she comes down stairs and does her worse before jumping up onto it. I thought to myself, instead of wasting a perfectly good chair by moving it into an unseen corner of the house, I should probably create a slip cover I could put on when guests are over. Well, that's the plan but I haven't had my coffee yet, so let's see what happens once I do!
I'm really looking forward to spring right now. Little tiny peeks of green Hyacinths are coming up through the dirt in my gardens and the birds are starting to sing the spring mating songs so prettily. I have two bird feeders out back that I'll be posting more photos of soon since I got some good flying shots. Hopefully they'll look as good on the big screen as the little camera screen. I know for a fact that my horde of geraniums behind me are all looking forward to being able to go out on the front porch. Amazingly, they've been blooming all winter. Must be getting enough sun in this upper level room to at least attempt to survive the winter. Last year I lost two of them.
If you think about it, we've waited long enough for spring.... Where I live we should have had more going on outside than just snow for three months straight. Almost feels like the north has crept its way down south. I do wonder how global warming/climate changes are going to affect how we life our lives in the future. Ah well... I'm also looking forward to the Home & Garden Show which is this week...huzzah! I'm looking forward to going and sniffing flowers and seeing all the new fabulously cheesy booths too.
