The Little House Down the Lane

I saw someone else make trees like these, different from the trees I have made so far. So I wanted to try them with a house and more trees and houses (another time). Here is what ended up being the little house down the lane.

Happy Halloween ASCII Text Art

There’s something special about Halloween. It’s not the trick or treating, the spooky art work, the crafty and crazy costumes or the chocolate and candy gluttony. It’s a little of each of those but mainly, it’s magic. Halloween isn’t a simple, family holiday. It’s not a Christian tradition, Halloween has older roots. I think the reason Halloween is still just a bit scary is the fact that it is a holiday based on older things, mysterious to us now.

Welcome Home ASCII Text Art

Have you ever been really homesick? I lived in another country, twice. That got a bit tough at times. To feel out of contact with the familiar, my family and friends. Little things I didn’t think about very much became important when I was so far from them.
Welcome Home ASCII Text ArtIn my family, when someone comes home from a long trip away, we used to make huge ‘Welcome Home’ signs. Then there was cake, dinner and other fun stuff. The signs were a lot of fun to make and really nice to see when you walked in the door – if you were the one who was away.

If you are homesick, the best thing I have found was to keep busy, stay active and keep meeting new people and trying new things where you are now. You can find other things to replace what you’re missing from home – at least when it comes to things like your favourite shampoo, your favourite chocolate bar or your favourite book store.

It’s harder if you are missing people from home. Then you can’t do much except give them a phone call or send an email. See if you can find them online and chat that way too.
