Well, as a family we were all going to use the long weekend to trek down to Texas and rip out carpet and paint walls. Come to find out, Gary doesn't have Monday off so it would make a really bad turn around time. So...we decided to stay home and make plans to go another time. Meanwhile, all I can envision is the money pouring out of my already empty pockets into the mortgage and utilities for a house we aren't using. :-(
Now, I will look for some free activities to do in the city for the Labor Day weekend. I have seen several advertised on tv. I hope the temperature stays cooler than yesterday (102F.)
Yesterday I lazed around the house feeling a little sorry for myself wondering why I don't have a job yet. So I got out my sketchbook and calendar journal and fiddled around. I have been thinking about working on a set of note cards to sell at some local gift shop. They would look like some of these:
I just want to unify the theme of them so they seem more like a set.
Also, it is September and time for a new calendar journal page.
Here is last month's, completed.
Here is this month's waiting to be filled.
I also finished my Doodle a Day page as well.(Oh and to Roban, since you asked, this is just a daily doodle to fill the backs of my calendar journal pages. It is more like a catalog of doodles to use on future work.
This month I think I will be doing 30 Days of Lists although I am two days behind. Fortunately, once you sign up, you can access it for more than 30 days.
(Today's music note: When I was a kid, my uncle played an 8 Track in the car on our road trips. This was one of the tunes on the 8 Track. Since I only spent summers there and summer is slowly drawing to a close, I thought it was the perfect September song. Speaking of September songs, Frank Sinatra sang a song "September Song" but I couldn't find that version on Playlist.com. Mom is a great fan of Sinatra and even has her satellite radio permanently set to the Sinatra station. So the second song on my list is for her even though it is by the Platters. Have fun listening.)
