FUN MONDAY - stuck in your house
The Church Lady has following question
How do you beat the doldrums when you are stuck in the house either because it is too cold or too hot outside? Do you read? Cook? Complete a home improvement project? Watch movies? Scrapbook? Please share your ideas.
When I am stuck in my house it's not a problem. I certainly won't cook other things then usual and spend my time in the kitchen. There is nothing to improve in our house either, other then changing the decoration from time to time, but that I do without regarding the weather, it only depends on my mood. I don't watch movies either besides a little crime story while we have lunch. After 40 years of marriage and being a retired couple we are allowed to do that !
What I do is first getting furious when I open the shutters in the morning and I look out of the window. Especially when it rains or it is wet, cold and grey. But then I remember that since 4 years I learned to use a computer and I forget the grey world outside. I take a cup of coffee and answer my emails. Then I visit my blogfriends and enjoy the posts from Australia, where people complain about the heat and that the sun is shining too much. I also surf the net a bit, because there are always new things to learn, or I play around with doing new headers or learning more about photo tricks and htmls.
As I use each spot of sunshine to go out photohunting, when I am stuck in my house, I have quiet a lot to do to select my photos and file them properly. When I am fat up with my computer and my window to the world, I take a book and read. I love reading. Or I call my girlfriends to chat and that usually lasts hours until it is time to prepare supper, watch a movie and go to bed.
