Healing…. and looking Ahead
My ribs are healing nicely…. the only time I notice these days is if I try to sit up in bed whilst lying on my back. That seems to pull the muscles that were bruised. Other than that, I rarely even notice that they hurt. So thankful that it wasn’t a more serious injury. And I will be a bit more careful in the future.
Speaking of the future….. what does 2014 hold for letterboxing (for me)? I will keep working on my Wetlands, Waterfowl and Shorebirds series. I think I will try to get a few of them ahead and keep them with me in the truck so that if I happen to drive by a suitable wetland, I will be able to stop and plant.
I currently have 6 boxes that need to be hidden….. 1 near the Celtic Festival grounds in Canmore; 1 near the Banff Centre for the Performing Arts (there’s a few out there to find when we pay the $25 to go for the day also); 1 of Albert the Albertosaurus (mascot from CJ ’13)…. still trying to figure out where to plant that one!!; and 3 waterfowl stamps ready to go…. somewhere near a wetlands.
I would really LOVE…. to do a trip to Montana. It feels a bit funny to think about going to the States on my own for 3 or 4 days…. especially tenting by myself. Maybe I just put the cap on the truck and sleep in there? I have not been able to find anyone who wanted to go with me (so far). When I suggested it to a friend she said…. “great, I love to SHOP in the States!” What? Shop? Are you kidding? I would have 100 Letterboxes on my list to find!! Ah… we’ll just wait and see!
Other than that, I’m planning to carve a bunch of stamps and sell at a couple of craft fairs this spring (along with some chicks, eggs, water lilies, and home-made jam). So I think for now, that is where I will focus my carving/creative energies.
