Writing Prompt:
The roads and airports are stuffed with holiday travelers, so it seems like a good time to stay put! Make a list of 5 things that you would do on a "staycation." Does you visit your town's touristy attractions, do you explore the historical sites in your own town, or is a staycation your opportunity to explore how comfy your couch is? Pick one "holiday at home" idea off of your list, add a sensory detail to it (smell, taste, sound, touch, sight), and write for 10 minutes. Then post the results in the comments of this blog for the chance to win a free class. Everyone who comments will get warm-fuzzies, in the form of free likes and remembers!

Comment on this blog! What comes to mind when I say the word, "staycation?" Post your 10 minute write in the comments, and you could win a free class!

I'd sleep in on my holiday at home. Make coffee, and read a book outside, under the late morning sun. I'd mosey around for an hour or two more, doodling, journaling, just being in my space. Then make a yummy herb salad with blackened salmon for lunch--I've missed breakfast--and eat on my cozy rug on the floor, Indian style. After lunch I'd make Sadaff tea with cinnamon and rose petal leaves, and sip sublimely. Next, I'd draw my afternoon bath, sprinkle lavender crystals, and light a candle for effect, and soak the afternoon away. I'd apply my homemade honey, brown sugar, and pumpkin facial mask on my cheeks and forehead, place cucumber slices over my eyelids, and get dreamy with it. By this time it's 5pm, and time to make dinner. I'd go to my yard, pick some fresh vegetables, and boil water for stew. Around 7pm, I'd rinse and repeat: tea, stew, indian style on the cozy rug, a new facial consisting of white egg yolk with honey, draw a bath. Rinse and read again.
