Wide awake at 1 am. What to do? What to do?
Bead Fest Santa Fe was this weekend. Every year the show seems to get smaller but I was still able to find almost everything I needed. I bought some beautiful beads from Nepal and Tibet. I'm toying with the idea of heading up to the Teahouse for breakfast this morning then making one last run through the exhibit hall before the show ends this afternoon. On the other hand, I really do need to get in my studio and just work. Especially since I'll be traveling quite a bit starting in April. Or maybe what I should do this afternoon is get beads and yarns matched up for 2 or 3 needleweavings so I can take them with me to work on while I'm traveling.
I have 2 trips planned for April. First I'm off to Asheville for the Gold Mastermind Retreat. I'm spending a few extra days there so I can check out the galleries. Then I'm off to San Antonio. I'm really looking forward to getting away but I still have a lot of work to finish in preparation for each trip.
Then it's off to Las Vegas in May and I'm still trying to decide where I want to stay. The Monte Carlo is a possibility since the spa suite is really affordable and it's close to everything. Needless to say, visits to Lush and Sephora are on my list of "things to do" while I'm there.
And as everyone who's been following along here and on Facebook knows, the online dating is NOT going well at all. And it seems to be deteriorating on a daily basis which I wouldn't have believed was possible and frankly is just depressing me. Maybe it's a Mercury Retrograde issue. Anyway, I'm taking this as a VERY clear sign from the Universe that I'm on the wrong path at this point in time. I'm leaving my profiles active because I paid for 6-month memberships but I'm not investing any more time into the process right now. There's always the chance that someone really amazing could come along but, to be honest, I'm not holding my breath. I have a really strong feeling that there is someone in my future but that I'm not going to meet him online. The Book of Runes says that "living for a time empty" gives us the time and space to find the right direction so I'm taking a step back.
