So my first couple of vacation days have been great! How could not going to work be anything but? (OK, I can think of about 1 million ways but I won't be a negative Nancy. Smile, enjoy! Right?)
I watched a movie that I enjoyed.
It is one of those quirky movies with that arty feel. The cinematography was very clever- reminded me of Amelie. Now there's a film I need to rewatch this summer.
I read this fun little detective novel.
I am going to try to read 2 books a week this summer, but I know that might not always happen. Especially if I get into a long book.
Been also doing some cleaning. My art space and a corner in my diningroom/ kitchen need some TLC. The CLUTTER! But with my daughter moved out I feel like it is time to refresh a bit and make some changes. So I have been cleaning, although this is a multi-step project and right now it looks messier than it did before I started. But I know I'm making progress.
I've started prepping my travel journal for our west coast adventure in a couple of weeks. I picked up one of these Maya Road blank cardboard books since I really liked using this size and shape last time I made a travel journal. They need some color and design though, and here's what I've done so far to the cover.
A lot more to pre-prep though. I'll have more to show you another time.
And while cleaning, I found this bin of assorted paper ephemera I had collected quite awhile ago and forgot I even had it. All kinds of cool pieces I had saved or kept instead of throwing away.
I love when you make such a fun discovery.
There's been a few other little adventures like rug shopping with hubby. We needed a new inexpensive not so stained, smelly and frayed livingroom rug. When the dog got sick last month it was the last days in the old rug's life. I love doing these routine and pretty typical things, now that I don't feel rushed to get them done on a 2 day weekend. Plus the hubby and I had a lot of fun driving to kingdom come and back again yesterday to find the right rug.
Not sure what we are doing yet today, since I wrote this last night and I haven't yet rolled out of bed. The beauty of a relaxed morning!
There's plenty of possibilities though.
Have a great day and hope you stop back soon.
