April Showers

Advertisements

It’s day two of April, and day twelve of not working a proper amount of hours. The sun is absolutely beaming into my room giving the illusion of warmth from the outside. In all reality, it’s just above freezing and I’m still exhausted from trying to stay awake way too late last night. Excessive amounts of blankets are my only safety from lingering shivers.

I almost wasn’t going to write anything today and just continue to sleep for the next few hours, or even the rest of the day honestly. However, today is Thursday and being tired can make creative juices flow, so here I am.

When I finally rolled over to grab my phone for the day, I had the most amazing idea, I should build a barn door! I’m overly ambitious sometimes, I know. Hear me out, so roommate’s room doesn’t have a door. The old canning room of the trailer just has never had one for as long as I can remember. Because of this, her pets, and Shadow too honestly, can just be pests to her sanity. I say pests; the cats chirp at each other before sunrise for like two hours, and the dog is our resident burglar alarm. Poor girl I feel like she could use a real door now. And that’s why I want to make a sliding barn door.

My dumbass was watching every video I could find on YouTube about it for hours this morning. I know I could totally build one too. Watching all these tutorials has taught me literally just a pattern since I know how to use a saw and drill. I’m going to lose the ambition real quick I think. A friend of mine installs doors and windows for a living: he’s coming by this weekend to check out what’s going down with the doors for me.

Other than that, I’m actually writing again, which is super cool. Writing requires research, so I’m learning a lot about random shit too. I’ll have to dedicate a post to things I’d never thought I’d need to know. Maybe a good bonus post?
Being in quarantine is fun…

If I end up deciding I’d rather to something physical, I’ll just pull out my roller blades. I can stand, get up, and roll in them. That’s really all I can do though, so today might be a good time to try and actually practice them.

I feel like there’s so many things to do, but also the idea that I have a long time to do them. It’s refreshing. However, that’s all I’ve got for today. Thank you so much for reading, stay safe!
