Yesterday evening, for the first time in a long time I had nothing to do. Since I'm usually really busy, I had absolutely no idea what to do with this unexpected free time. And of course, the city is so boring. Typically I would just rearrange my room when I had nothing to do, but I did that a few weeks ago..In my never-ending saga to find a headboard I like, I saw on a blog where someone used a mantle as their headboard and since the fireplace in my room doesn't work, I thought I'd try it. Here's a photo of it...(sorry it's blurry, the lens is scratched on my phone from it's multiple meetings with the ground.)
So then I tried again at learning the guitar, and I'm sure my roommates really loved it :). So far, I can play the chorus of "Cowboy Take Me Away" by the Dixie Chicks which is my favorite song at the moment. But once I couldn't feel my fingertips, I thought it would be a good time to stop playing so I moved on to the next thing which was showing Libby my favorite youtube video. And then when that was over I decided to do a run-through of the cupcakes that I'm doing for a wedding next weekend and I decorated a single cupcake. That kept me entertained for about 15 minutes.
Moral of the story: it was so nice to have an evening with nothing to do.
