In the wake of my recent loss, I am in the process of rebuilding the good in my life. I have been wanting to start some projects for awhile, but haven't made the time. Now without the ability to hop in a car and waste my time driving around, I have much more free time on my hands to do what I please.
Plant a garden.
We have a really great space in our backyard for planting and reaping bountiful harvests of tomatoes, peppers, beans, peas, squash and flowers for the bees. It's the perfect time to plant and I may even start a little herb garden on my windowsill. Though, last time I did this my roommate knocked the window garden over twice! She was kind of a whore though, so I'm not worried about that happening again, as she recently got married.
Buy old furniture and learn to reupholster.
This is the project I've been thinking about for awhile. I don't imagine it would be too hard to learn, but I'm afraid it will look a little sloppy due to the fact that I am a novice. There is a really great antique spot that I'm looking forward to visiting soon. I'm sure I could find some amazing pieces there.
Create a recipe book.
I have a bunch of recipes I've tried from recent parties, dinners, and create-your-own-dessert nights. I really want to take all of these recipes, use some adhesive to set them in a book and bind my own cookbook. I should also take pictures so I know how delicious my recipes were! I find pictures always make everything a bit more appetizing. Using a cookbook without pictures is like going to the Manassas Mall on a Friday night. You're a little nervous going into it and the results are never ever what you had hoped for. You just shouldn't do it.
I'm looking forward to starting these summer projects! I would love some expert advice/tips on how to complete these ventures. Good advice is hard to find these days.
