Any suggestions on what to do on a lonely evening?

    I try to be a friend to myself, get to know me, have fun, laugh even at myself. Get to know me. I can always find something to do. I found if I’m lonely, I need a friend, mostly in myself. But that just me…

    Check the activity calendar and join a livestream. Participate in chat and get to know some new folks.

    I read (especially love cozy mysteries, and they say trying to solve them improves mood and mental function), I have a pen pal (of almost 19 years) who lives halfway across the country to the east, and an elderly aunt who lives halfway across the country to the west, that I write to (actual letters), I have two siblings who don’t live close that I email, and I have two friends that share a homesteading mindset that I see every month or two, and keep in touch with more often via phone or email. I also learn about things that interest me, either via vlog/blog or by reading books. I go for walks. I used to have a dog, but told myself she would be my last, so now I’m dogless. Although I don’t really enjoy time in the kitchen, I do try to do more cooking, and there’s always canning/dehydrating/fermenting to do, as well as preparing natural remedies. By nature I am both a home body and a loner, so it generally isn’t an issue for me, but those are the things that keep my mind occupied.

    Start some seeds inside if you have some good southern facing windows or garden lights.

    Read up on or watch some YouTube channels that inspire you

    Plan your garden, plan/work on some projects to improve what you have going on with your homestead.

    The library has a wealth of books

    Also, you can meet people at the library, possibly find like minded people. Another place is at local grain stores. You just might find some who enjoy card or board games.

    This past weekend, and today, I was going through our pantry, reorganizing, and making a list of what we would like to have on hand.

    Do you enjoy creative work? I sew, crochet, bake, preserve food, create fresh medicinal items, etc., while my husband loves woodworking, and sometimes when time allows, he paints (pictures), does leather work, and I picked him up some carving tools.
