Passing The Time

What does a single girl do when she’s basically immobile? This one, for at least tonight is allowing herself a mini-marathon of season one of one of her favorite shows, Sex & the City. This will be happily followed with my curling up in my covers and my copy of Geri Halliwell’s first novel, ‘If Only’. I read the book once years ago when I first got it and recently decided to read it again. Aside from that, I’m still debating to myself how to spend my six week sentence of staying off my feet. I was up to my elbows in a braille project for a few days there, but now am facing the rest of my sentence with nothing really planned. Although, I’ve spent a good portion of my day giving careful contemplation to things I can accomplish while I’m being forced to kick back and relax.

One thing is more of a fun thing. I think I’m going to make myself a little Amazon Wish List of office supplies and goodies to help aid in my writing – for both the blog and non-blog writings. As I can accumulate the funds I will purchase off the list. Create my own little nook of creativity one piece at a time. I’m actually quite excited for this little task I’ve given myself. Another task is to get some real writing done. I have an article I need to write up, as well as some other forms of writing – including, oh yes, getting this blog pumped up all the more with my random thoughts! That is one reason why I want to get myself some better office supplies. So I can jot down my blog ideas more easily and not forgot them when I get to sit down and actually write them out! I also need to take the time to sit down and finish going through my pictures from my Mackinaw getaway and finally share more of that on here!

Now of course, not everything I plan to do over these coming weeks is to sit on my laptop. I’ll be the first to admit I’m a net junkie, but even I can only take so much online time. There are movies to watch, books to read and naps to take that I wouldn’t otherwise. There is also, potentially getting out of the house for coffee trips with friends and such. Of course there is also the offline organizing I need to do around myself. Granted, some of that organizing will have to come when I am on my feet again (due to moving stuff around), but still. I can at least make the plan of exactly how I want things arranged and perhaps even enlist the help to do it beforehand. LOL!

Getting back to stuff to do online though, I have contemplated hosting a random live chat over in my community. I’m not sure when it will be, but I’m definitely thinking it’s about time I get around to it. I also need to figure out how to re-install the “pin-it” button for my Pinterest account. I’ve had to re-do my laptop since I created my account on there. So if anyone knows, please don’t hesitate to pass on that little tidbit to me! I’m also considering giving my blog a makeover. I need to get some photos done of myself for my “about me” page and such still, but perhaps this weekend. Perhaps this weekend when my friend Melly Belly comes to see me (and help me around), I’ll be able to get some done. Of course if I do give the blog a new look, then the Facebook, Google+ and Twitter accounts will certainly get a face-lift as well. After all, I got to keep the theme as consistent as I can throughout my social pages. Oh those creative ideas just keep coming to me on what I can do with the blog. LOL!
