More than the Meaning of Life

I am away from home now, teaching at Bits N Pieces in Pelham, NH.  This is my happiest place in all of New Hampshire!   One of the shop's customers made me this amazing beaded ornament:


I completely remember what we were laughing at when this photo was taken, but I totally can't tell you.  What happens at Bit N Pieces...

The shop owner, Liz, is completely adorable, the students are divine, the classes are going great, and yet I'm looking forward to the end of this event, just a little bit.  You see, this is my last teaching trip of 2015.  I will drive home on Monday and then spend 42 fabulous days at home.  Forty two.  F O R T Y    T W O.  I can't remember the last time I spent 42 consecutive days at home.  It's likely been years.  Years and years and years.

My head is spinning with the possibilities.  Oh, the things I could do.  The things I should do!  I don't want to hit the road in January and say "Hey, I watched tons of Netflix and slept in a lot."  Obviously I will drink a lot of tea and read a lot of books, but after that I want something to show for this time at home.

What are some of the things I could/should do?  What would YOU do if your time at home was as limited as mine?

I certainly hope you keep on creating wonderful things! And then blogging about them!

Gurl...you do what makes you happy! If that means Netflix, so be it. You deserve this! You work hard and are so helpful and gracious, you have every right to do as you please for a long time, so 42 days? Pffffftttt....

I so totally get the reference between the title of your post and the number of days you will be home!
