Documenting Life

I have been documenting my life each week.  I think a bit more forethought would help.  lol

But then that would mean doing only one thing at a time.  I am now behind on my sketchbook class not to mention the three other projects.  The yard is drying out and I can see some dandelion leaves. :O

This past week featured a favourite quote and DD#1 and I were talking about old letters and cards and my need to throw away my old diaries.  :(  She said, "We truly do need the gift to see ourselves as others see us." and I thought that was very profound.  I'm meditating on it!  ;^)  Too late for the diaries though!

EDIT:  DD#1 says SHE was quoting Robbie Burns!  ;^)

This is this week's and I'm learning to add old scrap pages to save some time.

Because my life is always busy!  Documenting sometimes is just about the blurs. But I am now older and wiser and know that some opportunities only come once in a lifetime.  You can quote me on that!

Your journal pages are beautiful. I think they're better because there is no forethought. Blurs could also be a good thing. It helps us to avoid over-thinking. Sometimes the first thought that comes to our mind, is the right one.

Blurs I understand... And I love your journal pages but I think I love seeing the time you spend with your little ones.
