Photos from L to R: Friday - My now 17 years' old niece Kayla's 10th birthday pool party; Saturday - Dolly's Senior Prom, 14 years ago; Sunday - Mama and me (decades ago) in honor of Mother's Day...these layouts are part of my Layout A Day -LOAD 518 - Challenge.
T'was a quiet and productive day, somewhat! This is what happened:
We made an appointment for measuring the fence - after going to two more fence places . Once home, I
- finished the day's layout;
- Read a lot - more like dipping in this and that: decided one book I bought earlier in the week goes to the "free library!" I thought it was poetry...and is but I don't care for the first poem - just not my cup o' tea;
- Spent several hours döstädning scrapbook cardstock and pattern papers - I decided to separate by color/type: pattern and plain..
8:15 am: Feeling rather lethargic...perhaps up too early. N even slept in late. Read, sort of journaled, piddled ...about 11:30a, decided I needed a nap ... and I did. Slept til 2-ish. Piddled around in Craft Room and then decided to take a walk - to Zeke's Coffee Shop! On the way, I stopped at Art Enables: open house and free collage -making art activity for visitors...I was quite impressed with the collages self-acclaimed newbies were making. I like collage and have a huge stack of magazines I'm saving for just that purpose ... Note to Self: Family gathering the end of this month...maybe we'll collage and paint...I'm feeling a little more energy...and the breeze is delicious ...busy on the Avenue today...Zeke's is a popular pick-up point for Lyft & Uber it seems...
7 am: Planned Obsolescence strikes again: This time - the oven! Seems that something's gone wrong with the controls... so, we call tomorrow to see what if anything can be done...my bet's on a new oven! Why not: after all, it's Lucky 13.*
8:32 am: Listening to Sunday Baroque while N has msnbc on...he was up too early - the oven...it's raining quietly and the air's cool... Lots of flute on Sun Baroque today, in honor of Mother's Day. Light, playful, joyful, delightful ... Time to delve into a book...and maybe fix a bite to eat: fruit; remainder of the lemon ricotta muffin...N wants to go to the grocery store later, early afternoon. Guess I'll make a list ... a list! The bane of my existence...
Otherwise, t'was a quiet day. N watched baseball, Turner Classic Movies, news shows, napped... I read and spent a goodly amount of time looking at YouTube videos on digital bullet journaling...a whole new adventure - or not! * And to bed, to bed about 10 pm!
And that's how the 2017 Week in This Life Ended !
PS. *Tomorrow, Tues, 15 May, a service call has been scheduled...and two milestones to share: 1- My car clocked 140K miles this morning and 2 - this is my 1400th post...suppose I need to play the number 1-4-0?
