Happily Home Alone - how would you spend the time?
I have 21 generous days stretching ahead to feed my mind, body and soul. Family is traveling and my commitments are small. I’m giddy with anticipation to create and explore in a way that is reflective and fresh. I’m curious to know how you would craft this time to make it special for yourself?

I would try to think of those things I wish I could do but usually can't: sit in the back yard while the sun comes up and listen to the birds. Get out ALL my bead craft things and or yarn and leave them out for a couple of days to sit with them and feel the colors and textures and finally make something. Walk around in my underwear.
I would feel the need to do something practical, and so would definitely get into some deep cleaning, or make/bake foods for the freezer. I think the previous idea of making some soup for yourself is an excellent one.
I would take the time to sit with myself, to sink into myself and explore some corners where the cobwebs need to be swept out.
Maybe I would find something to volunteer for on a temporary basis.
This would be amazing, and occasionally lonely.
I'd keep no schedule or plan projects. This is the time for Netflix binging Chef's Table, Grace and Frankie and My Beautiful Broken Brain while sipping a wonderful red wine and eating foods that delight you.
