This Isn't About You

Happy T Day everyone.  Head on over to   Elizabeth's Blog-Altered Book Lover   to join in on the T gang fun.
I have a journal page this week not only for T Day but also for Art Journal Journey.
My page today has this coffee mug on it even though I am  a tea drinker myself.
Art Journal Journey's theme this month is For the Record. My journal page has a cup of coffee on it because of a Carly Simon's song, You're So Vain that has a great line in it about clouds in my coffee. 
There's also the line about the scarf that was apricot (and my smudgy apricot paint smear) and the lear jet flying to Nova Scotia for the total eclipse of the sun (the plane stamped images).
I've also got a photo from last Friday evening when my daughter and I went out for dinner while out running errands.  I had this lobster roll plate and a coffee frappe. I ate the lobster but not the bread, a few of the fries and half of the cole slaw, because that sure was a whole lot of food. I did finish most of the ice cream frappe though, but not even all of that. I was definitely having an ice cream craving and since I hadn't had a frappe since last summer I figured I would have a Friday after a long week splurge. The whole meal was probably about 3 days worth of calories so I took it easy the rest of the weekend. But it was sooooo yummy and reminded me of summer.
That's all for me today. My week has turned turned into one of those busy crazy too much going on ones.  Have a great T day everyone.

Wow Erika, that meal would have been two for me. You have definitely made me hungry and now I'm craving french fries and frappe. Of course, I'd have taken a bite or six of the lobster, too.

Your cup and song made me smile, because that looks like the world on it. And that reminded me of Earth Day, which reminded me of my own vanity of that day.

Thanks for sharing both your AWESOME art (and non-vain mug) and your wonderful meal with your daughter with us for T this Tuesday. Just 9 more working days until you get a break!

Love your journal page, and hpw you put so much from the song into it, great! And pages with coffee are always good in my book. Love the look of that food, I'm hungry, so will go to the kitchen and start heating my lasagna. Happy T Day, and thanks for another wonderful contribution to AJJ, hugs, Valerie

Great journal page! I think you are all doing the same challenge and I am enjoying all the old songs. I remember the Carly Simon song very well. Some say it was about Warren Beatty. I love the quirky lyrics too.
That lobster sandwich looks great! I would have done the same as you, eaten only part of it. I usually ask them not to bring the fries as i don't eat them. The lobster looks yummy. Lobster is something I have only ever eaten once in my life during a holiday in Thailand.
Happy T-day,
Lisca
