nothing wrong with making photographs close to home, either IN your house or around the yard.
i rarely make it out more than my yard .. or inside ( or down the street ). if i am lucky i go about 6 miles away, but i don't see the point
seeing there is plenty to see and photograph right under my nose.
the other thing to do when im in a rut is something completely different. instead of using a camera, get a couple of oz of cyanotype fluid,
coat some paper or cloth or whatever .. and make some photograms, or use some photo paper and make some lumen or retina prints ..
don't bother with the camera .. and nothing to PRINT so you won't feel guilty ... no film lying around to process, or 1000 negatives to print.
you could always cook dinner ..
