So, I've really been trying to persevere through the boredom today and not post. Not because I didn't want to post, but because I don't want to bore you all or make you all think I'm a boring or unhappy person. Sometimes it's so much easier to see negative things. Why IS that? It should totally be opposite. There are so many good things right in front of us. I've been searching online all day. I've been looking at container gardens. Gardens in general are just inspirational. It's living art, really. I've been looking at container gardens because I live in a very small space. My house is large enough....but the space IT dwells in is not. We don't have too much yard, it's really just a small patio. I've really been wanting to spruce it up. It's dusty and dirty out there. And the plants I do have look a little bleak. I am no green thumb. That would be my mother. But I think gardening in containers...such as terra cotta pots and things like that might be something I could tackle. I have been able to keep my african violet alive for 2 years now...and it blooms profusely all the time. Everyone I know always says their african violets never bloom. I figure I must be doing something right. Right? So anyways, that's on my list of to-do's. That list, by the way, seems to grow bigger everyday. I have a list for so many things. List of scrapbook pages, list of new artsy things I want to try, list of things to buy, list of places to go, and looky's a list of lists. See how easily lists are created? My list of creative things to do has just been growing and growing. Partly from this nothing to do all day and then combined with the power of the internet. So much coolness out there. Like this. Most of you crafty ones have probably been to this blog before. But if you haven't...its pretty neat. These two ladies live on different coasts and every day they post a picture of their morning. Just pictures. No words. In all my boredom today, I browsed through all 150 (or something like that) days. It's amazing how something so mundane can be so visually beautiful and inspiring. And then there is this. Daily art cards. Really, really cool. And my friend Kim has been doing some of her own. This last one is super cute! Sitting here all day with nothing to do, sure makes me dream about all things I could be doing! I keep thinking I could tackle these art cards, but so far I have yet to start any. And of course there is Kal. My goodness. Nuff said. Right now as I type this, I've got 10 different things going through my head about different projects I want to do. I'm meant for more than this. I just know it. If I think lightly about the first 6 months of 2007, I'd probably not have very many positive things to say about this year. But truly, when I really think about, this year has really been a lot about self discovery for me. I'm really learning about who I want to be and what I really want to do. (when I grow up! ha ha ha!)
Well, I guess I better be off. I just got a call from my MIL. Jake just threw up. *ugh* i don't get it. I don't know what it is wrong.

I can so totally relate to this !I usually have a ton of things I want to do, but there are some days when I just can't do any of it! Like right now...I have two article assignments due and I'm surfing blogs. And I want to get my scrapbooks organized, but what am I doing? Not that!
The links you posted are great!! I love to find new stuff to surf to! lol

i totally understand where you are coming from. there is so much i want to do, yet i never seem to be able to actually do it. hang in there .

Melissa said...

I totally get what you are saying. Lists of creative things you want to do.

I made a calendar like Stacey Julian's for things to do this summer. It has things for me, for me and Tanner, the house and for family. I try to do one thing everyday. So far so good.

Sometimes I feel the same way. I want to just create all day. I got all day Friday and most of today to do so. Such a good feeling.

Container gardens sound great. We are in the process of fixing up our yard. Dead bushes and weeds to pull up...I like the idea of a container seems, easier to take care of :)

Hey Corey. Everybody gets a few No-GO days. These are yours. It'll pick up. Keep on keepin' on and ease up on yourself. You can grow an African Violet? Then you are 5 steps ahead of me. I can't keep a darn thing alive.
