Lazy Girl

I swear I still exist.  I am still here.  I would love to say that I have spent my time away from my blog doing all kinds of crafty and exciting things.  But alas...I am embarrassed to share that the last few weeks I have been nothing more than an unmotivated and lazy girl when it comes to the creativity factor.  I have spent my days maintaining a relatively orderly household, tending the animals and exercising only to find myself sitting on the couch in the afternoons, hopelessly sucked in to the likes of Pinterest and Facebook hoping someone or something will spark some creative interest. 

That is what winter does to me.  Although, I have no excuses since our weather around here has been lovely.  I do manage to get outside a few times a day and enjoy the unseasonably warm days.  I have been reading some wonderful books including, "Undaunted Courage, Meriwether Lewis, Thomas Jefferson, and the Opening of the American West", by Stephen Ambrose, "The Forgotten Garden", by Kate Morton and currently "The House at Riverton", by the latter (thanks to The Lefthanded Housewife for the awesome book suggestions). 

We are also starting the long awaited work on our Master bathroom.  Sanding has ensued and this weekend points to more sanding, fixing the walls, and installing various fixtures.  When I say we, I mean mostly Hubby does the hard labor while I scour the internet for the perfect mirrors and light fixtures.   I look forward to sharing pictures of the finished project.

So, you see, I am still here, I just chose not to bore you all with my stories of laziness.  I do have a few projects in the queue that I am hoping to find the motivation to attempt soon.  Until then, you will find me lurking on other people's websites, wishing for the motivation they all seem to posses in these long months of winter.
