Holy fuck, it takes me forever now to catch up with everyone's writings I enjoy reading, and I've given myself no time to read lately (for about a week). I've been keeping myself pretty busy with the animals on my days off, but it also seems we end up going to the grocery store on those days too or something else. And since I am not a fan of being cooped up in the house anymore AT ALL, and still really prefer to do my reading at night....well, there ya go.
Right now mom and I have been looking around online and off for a loft bed for my room. It'll give me some floor space that I desperately need. I'm also looking for a cd stand and dvd stand so I can keep my bookshleves for what they are supposed to be used for, for the most part, books! Right now they are jammed packed with a lot of dvds that need to be put elsewhere.
So yeah, I'll have a pretty busy October along with work days. On the week my parents are taking their vacation I plan on repainting my room. This gives me time and space (without people in the house) so I can move stuff out of my room, including all my critters, and so nobody will complain the critters are elsewhere in the house. Also, I can let it dry overnight (if it works out that way) with the window open in here, and a couple of fans on high blast.
Now, I want to do this, but I also want to take a day trip somewhere. So this will probably be the day that I'm letting my room air out before I move my critters back in. Where am I going? Down US south 31, to the tip of Indiana and back. Its about a 2 and half hour drive, and while we were taking it back up from Huber Orchard this Summer I saw various thrift shops and antique stores. So yes, I have to go check these places out. Plus there were several old towns/buildings along the highway that I want to photograph. Will I be able to do this all in one day with the little light available in October? I dunno! We'll find out! Plus, antique shops tend to close early, and some thrift stores as well. I guess that means I'll be waking up early
Did I mention the state park/national forest I saw along the highway???
Of course, sometime, on one of my days off, whenever it'll be, I want to head back to Muscatatuck, Yellowood, and of course Brown County State Park at some point. Then there is also that Bean Blossom Bottom Nature Preserve I could never find on a map. So much exploring to do on back-roads, period, as well.
So much I want to do, just so fucking much!
The last reptile show of the year too...
And! three other cemeteries I've been meaning to visit here in Columbus (IN) as well. Ugh! October should be a good month! If I can just manage my time well!
