Create a Vision Board

Start collecting magazines. A LOT. Do not limit the types. You can find them at rummage sales, friends (make sure they do not want them back), library book sales, and just in general, ask people you know if you can have their old ones. Once you have a lot, go through and clip out photos that speak to you. Buy a poster board (the below author suggests the matte one from Target) and some good glue. Check out the below website for more specifics. I have to admit, I have not done this yet. Sounds like fun, and go along with the "Law of Attraction" so what you put on you will bring into your life.

The Elegant Farmer in Mukwonago, Wisconsin

I visited a local farm store, that has fresh and frozen produce and meats, plus hot food, plants for sale, and other things. I went right before Easter, and there were baby chicks on display, and mammothly-huge rabbits. Check out the bunny in the picture above. He liked to lay on his back, and have his nose rub.


EAA Museum in Oshkosh, Wisconsin

I visited the EAA museum in Oshkosh, Wisconsin a couple of years ago. I was one of the few people there, as I went early in the morning, the day after Thanksgiving, while most people were still in bed from stuffing themselves with food, or were hitting the stores for bargains. There were a ton of cool planes, and their gift shop had neat things as well. My favorite display is in the photo above, the Spirit of St. Louis, in which Charles Lindberg made his solo, non-stop flight from the U.S. to Paris.


Door County, Wisconsin

I visited Door County in April of 2007, I believe. It was 75 degrees fahrenheit! I stayed at a small golf course in Sturgeon Bay, off the beaten path. The rates were unbelievable, included a round of golf per night stay, and was quiet. It had a restaurant there too, which had a fabulous Sunday Brunch. The photo above is from a park that had dunes down the road. You can stand above on the rocks, and hear the water making loud, deep "glug" sounds as the waves went in and out of caves below the rocks.

Also, a place has a Friday night art making event, and you can make anything, including painting a t-shirt, wine glass, or tile, or many other things. Door County is the ultimate getaway, especially when it's not-quite "season time". I go either in the beginning of November or middle to late April. Not everything is open, but enough is to beat the tourists and still have fun and have many restaurants to choose from. Or, you can pick up some nice groceries and stay at a place that has a small kitchen and stay in. I did this at a resort-type place in Sturgeon Bay, in November.
