i hope this letter finds you well this lovely sunday evening. i am stuck in a nondescript hotel room in a town about an hour and a half away from home. oh the joys of my job! i was here all last week, and will probably be back for a couple more weeks. it isn’t great, and i forgot my ipad charger at home, but i’m making the most of it. and by that i mean, watching the tv channels i don’t get at home.
next weekend is canada day, so i will be home for a few extra days. i am quite excited about this and in celebration i want to do something. you know, as opposed to every other weekend when i do nothing. i don’t want to set my sights too high, just in case things don’t pan out. being disappointed is zero fun, and usually leads to beating myself up. so that isn’t what i want. but i do want to hold myself to something, so that i can feel proud and fulfilled.
i’ve been browsing the internet a lot in my downtime, looking at everything from crafts to recipes to photography. i see what other people are capable of doing, and i know i am too. i figure i will follow someone else’s lead and do something. easy right?
too bad i can’t even decide what i want to do. i’m leaning towards baking cookies, but then, i will eat them. so maybe healthy cookies? those exist right? or maybe i should just make a really nice dinner. like one with sauces and courses. i’ve been watching cooking shows a lot lately, i am totally intrigued by mincing garlic and simmering something. so maybe this is the way to go.
at the same time, i remind myself of all of the photography paraphernalia that i own. i have several cameras, piles of film and cool accessories. except for when i go on big trips, it just sits in a corner gathering dust. so maybe i should find an event like a canada day parade or something and go take some pictures. could be fun!
so anderson, what should i do? i don’t want to overcommit, but i do want to hold myself to actually doing something this weekend. so, here’s what i’m thinking. by wednesday of this week, i’m going to write you back with a plan. that’s the best way to hold me accountable!!
stay tuned 🙂
