What you do from 5 -9 am is what you’ll do from 9am – 5pm ~ Stacy Julian
I loved the shadow of the pitcher – which sits on the table – the sun made about 7:25 am this morning, on my Flower Garden quilt; quite apropos, I think… The quote I heard on a podcast during my morning walk. It all just came together so nicely… and was a nice entré for the day…I thought.
Over the past few days, I’ve been revisiting the practice of bullet journaling…a couple years ago I joined the world’s millions who jumped on the bandwagon…and then for some reason, I stopped. Maybe not completely – within my journal, I do a bit here and there but I don’t consider myself a real bullet journaler – whatever that is! I scoured my collection of books and previous Bujos (journals) and am reacquainting myself with those aspects I like, have used and new features I think I’ll try. I’ve come to the conclusion that predesigned journals and planners just don’t work for me but the blank page does. So, it’s off to the races I go, yet again.
The book Things You Save in a Fire arrived on my doorstep yesterday…addressed to me, apparently ordered by me from Amazon… A new release, the book has received great reviews from the likes of Kirkus, Booklist, NYTimes, Washington Post, Good Reads (the author even gave herself 5 stars … and why not‽) . I
- don’t know the author …
- have read several pages …
- am surprisingly intrigued to read on…
- invite you to stay tuned!
This about wraps up my Unraveled Wednesday; joining Kat and friends here.

I love the quote! It is so true! Because on the days I start out easily sidetracked – the remainder of the day follows suit!
I wish I could Bujo… but I don’t think my mind works that way. I’d love to discuss what worked for you and what new things you found!
I am with you – the blank page works better for me although I do have a calendar in addition to several journals. The photo of the quilt is so pretty. You were paying attention to catch the shadow at just the right moment – a writer for sure.
The shadow on your quilt is so pretty. I don’t journal, but if I did, I’m pretty sure it would need to be a blank page.
I’m not sure I understand what bullet journaling is … but an awful lot of people do it.
I gave bullet journaling a brief try, but have finally found a combination of journals that keep me organized and getting words on a page—The Daily Action Planner, and blank pages. I’m using a Russell and Hazel journal with their monthly tab dividers.
I have also come to realized that dated planners don’t work for me although I do love a monthly spread. I am re-reading the Bullet Journal book in hopes of finding a way to stay organized as we launch into a new school year. I have seen that book pop up a number of times so I look forward to hearing your thoughts
Your quilt and the cast shadow are just lovely. I just saw Things You Save In A Fire yesterday and was intrigued by the title, now I’m looking forward to hearing what you think!
Your quilt is so gorgeous! I love the author of Things You Save in a Fire. I’m buying this book tomorrow. Have been waiting for forever for it to come out. I’ve read all her other books already! Not that I’m hurting for anything to read – I have about 40 plus books started right now – ha!
