We had a four-night stay in a Knight's Inn in the Poconos this weekend. We tried to spend most of our stay out of the motel room. Fortunately, there were some options around.

There was also an outlet mall nearby, where we spent an entire evening doing some early Christmas shopping.

Across the street was a little lunch cafe. Their sandwiches were wonderful, and they offered a nice atmosphere in which to play cards and talk.

Next door to the cafe was also a paint-your-own-pottery studio. We stayed and painted pottery for nearly five hours! It was -so- good to do something creative. We found that creativity is a muscle that needs to be used and stretched. I personally had a very hard time getting started. And when I did finally begin to paint, my mind started to think of more and better ideas--but unfortunately, it was too late, since I had already started painting my teacup for Kelsey. But just that simple act of painting that cup got me thinking more creatively than I had in a while. Kelsey and I agreed how good it felt to have a creative outlet. Our job gets so routine, and hotel rooms provide such little stimulation, that our creativity muscle gets kinda atrophied at times. This afternoon at "Poke-A-Nose" Pottery was a refreshing chance of pace.

And, we came out with some custom Christmas gifts :) (We won't say for who)
