this intro page in my art journal* 

  1. it’s tuesday and, and hot ~ a cool 90°!
  2. the new air conditioner is working just swell!
  3. the clock ticks, ticks, ticks, bringing my attention to the time of day: 3:15 pm. my time flies…and
  4. I’m rambling…
  5. interrupted by Norman needing help with the iPhone 6+ ( I gifted him my old iPhone when I upgraded to an iPhone XR just days before Covid-19 began to shut everything down, back in March. (Geez, it’s been that long?)…
  6.  he can never seem to get the phone to recognize his fingerprints; perhaps someday soon we can go to an Apple Store and get them to help make it easy for him to use the phone…
  7. t’is a source of frustration and consternation: the former for him; the latter, moi…
  8. this summer, I’m attending stay @home art camp, created by me for me. camp includes Daily pages, Haiku and a new activity: a summer art journal, and other creative pursuits, including more mask making…guess the latter is just going to be the case… and oh yes, the other item in the photo is the cover of a  2019 Happy Planner notebook of paper, most likely no longer available …
  9. and to wind up this post, a reminder that tuesday next, 30 june, is the monthly sharing of activity with our 2020 words – right here on this blog.

Stay cool and create on!

Cheers~

~Christmas decorations to be packed/put away~

thinking:  just two and half weeks ago, it was Christmas and today –  21 days left in this month, the first of the new decade, 2020. Where does the time go?

grateful: for a good night’s sleep (my head hit the pillow and I was out as a light)…

finishing:  I guess I’ll wrap up this post and move on to a) putting away Christmas decorations and b) completing my December Daily/Journal Your Christmas album. Looks like I may close Friday with a win!

Have a great weekend!

Cheers~
