What is your Favorite weekend activity?
« on: 29/10/2006 18:42:53 »
I was sitting here bored after a night of no sleep and was wondering what you all liked to do as hobbies on your time off?

Well, my favorite weekend activity is being on line... But after that there could be any number of things I like to do! I love to go to Boarders and spend a few bucks on Cd's or a couple good books! I used to sew alot but don't get much opportunity these days, but that is fun also.

  I like crafts, making things with my hands, especially this time of Year! I also like to tinker around in the garden with flowers, I love roses and zinnias and wild flowers.. I also love multi colored Zinnia's, Daffodils Lillies, snap dragons carnations, I really like flowers.. I don't really think there are any I don't really like.. OOOOH yes I love those burgandy Pincushions, I don't know what the latin name is, but I love them!

No offense to granny but blackberrys take loads of sugar.  Although I'll confess that I sampled a really excellent 2005 made by a friend.  So far I am pretty committed to Merlot wine grapes. 

The beauty of beer over wine is that it is ready much faster.

OoooH I just looked at a really cook telescope I am going to get.. It is quite nice... The little one I have is so shot from ump-teen kids dragging it every where. I really miss seeing the night sky close up!! There has been a ton of shooting stars the last couple of weeks.. I wonder if there is something special transpiring !!

Awww you don't owe me anything hun  :)  :X

Miss talking to you to. I spoke to Ben to see what was going on with the internet, he was telling me something about a flag, because I have no idea what that is I switched off. Basically it means we're having to wait a little while longer till we can get the internet  :(

Man Thats the pits! Sorry Daniel... I wish it were not so! How was your day yesterday? Did you sleep well last night?
 Have you been doing any writing lately? I have been wanting to post some, but a bit reluctant as my feelings have been to much on the edge so to speak and very raw, perhaps even sharp... I don't know if that makes sense.. Oh well It makes sense to me... Everything seems to be coming out sad so I am keeping them to myself as they depress me .. I bought some more poetry trying to feel more up.... It helps!

Big Plans for Your evening Daniel? I was planning nothing.. I usually put up My Christmas tree tonight! I have started getting things ready for Christmas. My favorite time of year!!

Hey Karen - it's my favorite time of the year too.  This weekend I start getting out all the Chrismas lights and making sure they all work.  We used put thousands up in the yard.  We haven't done it in about 3 years.  Corky promised me this year we would.  If he backs out he's gonna be in deep doo doo.

So sorry to hear about that hun. I usually write when I'm sad or depressed, rarely do I ever write when I am in love. But writing always seems to help me. You'll be writing about rainbows and sunsets soon  :)

I recently started to write a story, it hasn't gone very well as all I have written is a long paragraph, just waiting for myself to see the story unfold in my head  ;)

No plans for tonight, just work. Haven't been sleeping that well lately so I feel quite tired, so hopefully as soon as my head hits the pillow I will be in slumber world. Also I need to remember to take my dream catcher down, I'm not getting any good dreams now. Oh well  ;)

Well Daniel, No worries I still have love, Just feeling a bit lost thats all.. I know things will be ok.. they have to be!
I am glad you have started to write something . It does help to express things on paper! Helps you see for yourself how your mind is really reacting to life..Your story will come..

I know how lack of sleep makes you feel.. I am so sorry your dreams have not been good... I feel as if mine have been stiffled also.. But I will not give up on them as they are all I have.. Daniel Don't give up on yours.. OK!  We both need them ..I have to go to work! Have a great day and get some rest tonight.. Be well !
