A new week is here. It is crisp and chilly and feels like fall here in my neck of the woods. I am sipping a big cup of pumpkin chai latte that Trader Joe's had back in stock. A little lazy time this morning with no place I need to go to. That puts a big smile on my face.
I have a new journal page for Art Journal Journey. The theme this month is back to school, hosted by Elizabeth. Its been a really fun theme and if you have yet to join in, you should.
My page isn't exactly about school, but it is about learning which is what you do at school. The school district I work in used to have the motto, "Making Life Long Learners", and that is my inspiration for today's page. School district motto's seem to change with each new (well not always so new) and in vogue push in the educational philosophy.
So I was recently looking through one of the magazines I cut out from when I found a photo of one these little free reading libraries. Back in the early summer several photos of these cute little libraries appeared on various blogs, and since I had never heard of them, I was very curious. We don't have any of them around here, at least in the range that my travels have taken me.
So when I found this photo I cut it out and decided to make a page out of it. I used a bunch of items from my stash to finish it off, as well as some paint for the background.
And I was quite excited, when back in August on our weekend to the Hudson River Valley in New York, I came across one of these little free libraries.
So I've been having a nice weekend. The hubby's surgery is Tuesday, and he is very nervous. He's been focusing on getting the boat cleaned up and put away, as well as pulling the air conditioners out of the windows. I can do the rest of the fall clean up while he is recouping. I've been trying to deal with my stress with a little more relaxing. I also need to get myself organized for school as I'll be out for a few days and with some grades due at the end of the week, I need to get myself caught up.
Its always something.
Have a wonderful time with the rest of your weekend.
