Rise and shine, campers! It's Saturday!
So, what are you planning to do today? Surely not sit like a lump in front of your computer all day mindlessly munching Froot Loops until the box is empty. There's no time to waste. Saturday, January 20, 2007 will come only once in your lifetime, so seize the day!
Okay, sorry if that paragraph was a bit too chipper, but I'm serious about grabbing some gusto on this mid-winter weekend. Maybe bundle up in a snug winter coat, get outside, and let the icy air invigorate your lungs. If you have a camera, snap some artistic close-ups of ice-laden twigs or an interesting lamp post. Or, if it's just too cold to go out, get creative inside. Here are a few suggestions:
~ Put on some fun music, grab a partner, and dance. (A "partner" can be a friend, family member, pet, or stuffed animal. He can also be the invisible man--one of my favorites. He never steps on your toes.)
~ Spread out an array of colorful paper, stickers, markers, magazine pictures, or other supplies, and create homemade thank-you notes for the dear people who gave you Christmas presents. (Or just for people who love you. A thank-you for no reason other than "being there" would make someone's day.)
~ Call your granny on the phone and tell her what's going on in your life.
~ Spend some time praying for your friends or anyone you know who's going through a hard time.
~ Snuggle up in a comfy chair with a good book.
Hopefully that's enough to set your creative wheels a-turning. On your marks, get set, GO!
(Come back later and let us know what you did today. I can't wait to hear about your adventures!)
