Every so often, the Husbandit needs a Husbandit Night, meaning a night to hang out solo. I appreciate that and I skeedaddle out of the house on those nights. However, I rarely take a night for myself. I decided to take an ordinary Wednesday evening and declare it my night by re-reading a childhood favorite, eating an easy dinner, and taking a long walk by myself.
It was very refreshing and I think I need to do that more often.
I want to start going on writing dates again to inspire me to write like a motherfucker, as Cheryl Strayed says. I asked a woman I met in my creative non-fiction class last spring if she wold be interested in meeting up to write and we had a good session at one of my favorite coffeehouses.
As a plus, I think I found the subject or at least the subject area of my next piece. I keep trying to write essays about work and instead write about something else. Clearly Something Else is obsessing me, so it’s time to write about it.
It is getting terribly hot. I am also getting terribly bored with most vegetable-based dishes I know how to make. I decided to mash up these two issues by mashing up some potatoes and asparagus for a cold soup recipe I found on the Interwebs. It looks like I pureed the Wicked Witch of the West.
I’m on a crafting spree. I’ve wanted to try some new projects for a while and organizing our new apartment has been my opportunity make pretty organizers. I was inspired by this post on Offbeathome.com
I especially like the dessert tower used as a jewelry organizer. But I did not like the retail price of such items. So, I found a tutorial on making a dessert tower and am now waiting for the glue to dry. Photos pending….
Due to the oddities of scheduling field trips, we welcomed 50 Amish people and 25 Hare Krishnas into our field trip center this morning. It was an interesting sight.
I want to learn how to use a power screwdriver, so I’m challenging myself to make this craft project.

I bought some cheap wood, furniture knobs, and purple paint. I will post the finished project.
