Not only would I be calm and zen-like at all times, I would be able to do amazing things because I would finally have enough time to get caught up reading the towering pile of magazines stacked up for a "rainy day".
We've had two gray days here in a row...and it's been awesome.
I layed around on the couch with the fireplace crackling merrily in the background and the pile of magazines offering scintillating companionship.
I took naps.
I'm feeling all relaxed and mellow AND...
I found cool things I need to look for when I get started on my American Pickers career.
Like this antique game wheel I found in Mary Janes Farm Christmas magazine (yes, I am that far behind reading my magazines...sigh)
I learned about whole grain varieties in the January Cooking Light Magazine. So now I am not only more relaxed I am armed with potential information I need to get healthier.
I read how to paint my stairs really neat in This Old House Magazine. A look that I doubt my husband will embrace. And a look that I doubt I will argue with him over doing because I actually live in a one-story house.
Which really wouldn't be that big of a deal if I didn't live somewhere that it is sunny 306 days a year.
I'm certain that If I just had a few more rainy days I could read about how to add a second story to our house. By myself. For under $37.00. Over one weekend.
So if I do the math...I still have about 54 rainy days left for 2010.
And since I am all zen-like and not in a big rush and I don't want to stress myself out, I am planning to devote 50 of those rain days to catch up reading my magazines WHICH MEANS I will still have four whole days left over add a second story and to cook up a few of those whole grain recipes as well.
Keep your fingers crossed it is a rainy year for us here in the Valley of the Sunstroke.
PS Tomorrow I'll share one of my sunny day "Pickers" finds from a garage sale right by my house. Hope to see you then.
