a little free time

Now that the faire is over I have all the time in the world. Well, I do but I'm not using it wisely.
Instead of cleaning my house and stocking my Etsy shop with items that are piling up in boxes in the baby's room, I've been lounging around on the sofa, cruising Pinterest and playing Sims 3 for hours every day. It feels soooooo good to do nothing.
Oh, and I started on my first novel in about eight years. It's under the temporary title of Coffee & Bacon and I have no idea what it's about just yet. That's how I write. I just start writing and see where it goes.
That's pretty much how I live my life really.
I'll be "faire free" until the middle of next year so I've decided that I need to use this free time to work on my family's Halloween costumes, write a bit, start belly dancing again, work on my Etsy shop and continue to unpack from our move two effin' months ago.
Speaking of belly dancing... lemme tell you a funny little story:
A few years ago I worked at a bank and the topic of belly dancing came up between me and a customer. 
The conversation went like this:
ME: I'm trying to grow my hair out so I'll look more authentic as a belly dancer. Many belly dancers have very long hair and I wanna look like that.
LADY: Oh, you're a belly dancer?
ME: Yeah.
LADY:  (leans in close and whispers) So do you go the the men's houses or do you meet them at a hotel?
ME: (long awkward pause) Um, I'm not that kind of dancer...
Jacket: found
Socks: Just A Dollar
Suede Granny Shoes: Good Samaritan Charity Shop
The original photo is me trying to get the camera away from my husband.
A little bit of cropping goes a long way.


  1. I love your Pinterest Boards. Just Love 'Em. I took belly dancing classes once. It's a lot harder than it looks!

    1. I mean this in a "I wanna be your friend!" type way.

  3. I had a few days like that last week, loads I should have done but couldn't be bothered. It's good for the soul to do nothing sometimes. Love those pictures, you look very pensive & pretty! x

  4. doing nothing is good for your soul. Resting after hard work is earned. Enjoy your down time

  5. I love doing nothing... Like way too much. I'm a lazy cow.
    hahahahaha belly dancing---meet them at a hotel or their house?!

  6. Down time is important. After big events like your faire, we need to relax. And relax. And relax. No need to apologize for that.
