For any of you wondering why I'm showing you my desk this morning, it's a Wednesday thing and quite an addictive thing at that. For all the details just go on over to Miss Julia's blog and you will see it's a place where we can photo our work space and then link it so we can all share what we have going on in our world! Sometimes, I just can't make this work for me, but when I can I love to be a part of this WOYWW thing!
Now, as you can see there isn't a lot going on here this morning. Miss MoJo just politely slipped out the door about a week ago and she has been on holiday ever since. Nothing I do can entice her back where she belongs. So I have been coloring an image or two with Ranger Distress re-inkers and making some flowers too. I'm 62 and as an older woman (you notice I didn't say an Old Broad") I have let my mind ramble back to my life as a child and all the things that have changed in it. I started a Journal....this is nothing new for me. The difference is, before when I wrote I wrote about all the things that were bothering me, making me mad, or sad, and things that I could do absolutely nothing about. I always wound up burning them, because I just couldn't let anyone know my inner most thoughts about things that were hurtful, etc. So I do not have a shelf full of little notebooks, collecting dust, waiting for me to die and then being read by my child or worse a total stranger! This one is for my grandson. It's about things I remember growing up, things that he can never relate to.....All the joyous things that are part of my life and really make up most of my life. I like to think, if he doesn't want to read it, then he will squirrel it away somewhere, maybe in his attic and then sometime in the distant future, someone will find this book, filled with a handwriting that used to be wonderful and is now at best, chicken scratch. Maybe this person will dust off this book and find many wonderful gifts hidden amongst the pages! So, this might just be something you would want to think about doing for your children or some one's child in the distant future. Talk about the things that mean so much to you and all the joy you have known in your life! It makes for wonderful writing and reading! For me, it is an awakening of all the joys in my life and it is making me realize what an amazing life I have had. My life has actually been very ordinary, but for some it might prove very interesting.
So there, you have it...This is what is happening in my little corner of the world. If you come visit, leave me a comment, and if you like what you see, Follow my Blog. I love having visitors and I'll try come visit you!
