I feel like I’m deflating. My energy, slowly, day-by-day, is leaking out of me. My eyes are burning and I feel sluggish and just blah. That said, and while I’m still exhausted, I’m feeling really inspired.
Sunday night we visited with some friends from church. They are in transition right now, between living here and moving out of state, and they are currently living with another couple from church. This couple lives in a beautiful old house where everything is so wonderfully preserved and the space is decorated in such a tasteful way. And I was inspired to one day own a house and decorate it to my heart’s content. I must say that before this time I’ve never really desired owning or living in a house. I was content with the idea of just living in apartments and not having to worry about taking care of a (most likely) bigger space. But now I’m not so sure. sigh
I’ve also been really itching to learn how to make everything by scratch: hummus, bread (which I can pretty much do, just haven’t actually done it yet), tortillas, marinara sauce, etc. All these things are relatively easy but I love the idea of making everything we consume (well, as much as is possible). I also really want to get back into being crafty: sewing, knitting and learning how to crochet. I think living up here is making me want to be more. . .self-sufficient and. . .green? I’ve definitely recycled more and been more environmentally aware since moving up here.
Oh, I also want to learn how to play the guitar and pick the violin back up. And blog more consistently.
