A Bit of Journaling

A very little bit!
I only did five pages from Nov. 27-Jan. 30.
But, at least, I did something!

Michelle's pretty background.

I found all kinds of these "butterfly shells" at the beach.
The picture is of my sister, Nancy, and brother-in-law, Bill, at Cayo Costa.
The beautiful poem about friendship is from Anne.

The Irish stamps are from Anne who recieved them from her friend who lives in Ireland.
The black and white dotted thing on the left is the leftover sheet from some stickers.
The feathers came from Cayo Costa.

This is the only page I worked on the whole time Kylie was here...and I never even finished it until she left.  Boy, she kept me going!

My sister Sally made the "Lucky Earrings" for me to wear when we went to the casino.

Erin sent the beautiful thank you card after her visit in November.

Kylie supplied the artwork.

Erin got the nickname Tuts years ago.  On my way to school, I'd drop the kids off at the babysitter's where she would feed them breakfast then take them to school along with her two kids.  Erin, being the youngest, got a lot of good-natured teasing and when she'd whine, they'd call her TaTa, which got shortened to Tuts and somehow stuck.

Anyway, I just painted the background on a new page so I'll keep plugging away.  I really love going back through all five of my journals to see what was going on in my life.  Gosh, I so wish I'd stared doing these when I was a teenager!

Do you have any regrets?

Regrets>I regret not taking care of me when I was taking care of everybody else.

Regrets? I have a lifetime worth of them! I never cry over spilt milk though. I have to study these pages some more. They are awesome. You might not have done many pages over the past few months but the ones you did are beautiful!

Linda, I have really missed your journaling. It is the 'you' I know best! But I love your photography, so how contradictory is that? I am so 'out of it' on my blog--I miss it, but seem to have nothing to say. Glad to see you journaling again. :)
