hard to stop

i don't know about you, but it seems with me, when i get super busy, i have a hard time stopping. thing is, i don't want to stop. i get on a roll. i love traveling, going places, being w/my favorite people. thats why i think i could totally tour the country on a bus for 7 or 8 months and just love it. especially in a tour bus, those are the best. sleeping in a bunk, the motion of the road lulling you to sleep, there's nothing quite like being on the road.

looking out the window, counting yellow cars and wondering what sort of old barn or farm hour will be around the next bin, i can't get enough of it.

on the other hand, its hard to stop "doing nothing at home", or at least thats what people think staying at home includes. well i have news for them, i seem to be just as busy around my home as i am on the road. in fact, when i'm at home, i don't want to leave, you have to tempt me with a road trip or church to get me out of the house.
i love being at home, maybe more than i love being on the road. i'm in my element at home.
every week i've had so much stuff to get done, lots of that stuff includes school- math and reading-. i did THREE math lessons today. i hate math. but i did it.
i'm pretty proud.
but i just love being here, its so quiet, people come and go as they please, the food is great, the view is the best, and here lately, the weather beyond amazing.
sometime i wander about when i'm alone (i'm alone alot here lately) and i don't know what to do..but that doesn't last long. i've learned to set goals for myself. history before pleasure reading, math before blogging, quilt before going on a walk, quiet time before TV, simple goals make boredom go away quickly.
i got all of my quilt blocks put together, now i just have to trim them up and sew the top together.
i'm pretty proud about that too.
your not gonna believe how stinking cool my pattern is
i have a long list of "to do's", but i'll spare you.
i'll just say this.
i'm a home body.
home is where my heart will always be, and someday i'm gonna make my own home.
but still, this farm and this house my dad and brothers built will always hold a very special place in my heart.
i don't want to stop being home.

proverbs 31:27
She watches over the affairs of her household
and does not eat the bread of idleness.

which one do you like better, being at home or traveling??


  1. I need a picture of the whole quilt!!! Please. :D

  2. I'm definitely a homebody. I go outside every now and then so I don't start getting depressed and refreshing my Twitter page a hundred times in search of the meaning of life, but for the most part, I will always enjoy being at home more than traveling.

  3. Travelling. possibly. ^_^ It totally depends on how I feel right at the second. I *love* travelling. anywhere. I get antsy really fast if I'm at home too long. *sigh* Someday I'll go somewhere new all the time. <3 <3 <3
