Hi everyone. Happy Thursday.
I'm home again after a couple of days away in Western Massachusetts. I grew up only a little over an hour away from the Berkshires and never had really explored them much at all. I am making up for it now I guess. My friend and I had a wonderful trip. I haven't had time to go through my photos since I just got home last evening, but I will have some photos to share of our adventure.
I thought today I would do a low key post and share a few photos from some adventures I had in the past few weeks. These are not from this week's M-W roadtrip to the Berkshires in Massachusetts.
I'll start with a few photos I snapped with my phone when I was away for my niece's wedding in Maine . These are what I discovered on a morning walk along the road where our rental was.

Hi everyone. Can you believe we are in the middle of the month already?
I'm leaving this afternoon for a couple of days away with my walking friend, but I wanted to share another page for Chris' When We Were Young challenge at Art Journal Journey before I leave.
I call this page First Love. I think it's great how Elizabeth had the same idea for a page and posted it this past Saturday.

Hi everyone. Happy Friday to you. Another week has flown right by for me, and perhaps for you also. Today we should have a really nice day, back to beautiful summer temperatures instead of the heat and humidity that we had had. And we should have sun too.
Today I have some art to share for Friday Face Off and Art Journal Journey.
My first journal page is one I started for last month's challenge at Art Journal Journey. The challenge in July was doors and/or arches (hosted by Wendy), and you can see the little door on the page. However, I never finished my page beyond the paper scraps background and adding the door, so instead of finishing it as I thought I might, I took another route so I could share it with you for Nicole's Friday Face Off.
I thought this big face worked great on my page for Nicole's challenge.

Hi everyone. Happy Thursday.
Today it is once again time for Rain's Art and Dinner Date. This week she is asking for cartoons and caricatures.
My photos aren't great, but my drawings in my daily journal are definitely cartoon-like. I don't spend a lot of time drawing them. That is my daily journal "rule", basically so I can keep up with daily journaling I color them with some water based Faber-Castell markers.
And you can see why I'm not happy using a Moleskin journal this year as you can see ghosts from the other side of the page. GRRR.

Hi everyone. It's already the middle of the week again, and we've made it into the double digit days of the month. August, please slow down. I love autumn, but I am in no rush for winter to return.
Today I have some art to share. First let me show a piece for Chris' When We Were Young challenge at Art Journal Journey. I think most people can relate to this experience.
It's that time of year, or almost that time of year, when kids are getting ready to go back to school. Right now there are so many back to school ads just about everywhere I look. When I was young, I was always excited to go back to school, except the year I started high school. That year I was terrified.

Hi everyone. Happy Tuesday or Monday night to you. It is time once again for T over at Bleubeard"s and Elizabeth's blog.
On the last weekend of July, I went to my niece's wedding in Waterford, Maine. It was a lovely time, and if you want to read about the wedding itself you can check out my post from last Thursday- (Wedding).
The wedding was on Saturday evening, but we had wedding events on Friday night also. My husband and I (along with my daughter and her fiance) had rented a house from AirBnB for the weekend that had a 3 pm check in. Since it was a 2 hour drive to the wedding area from home, and since we wanted to arrive to have a bit of time before our Friday night event, my husband and I decided to leave around noon, stop some place for lunch and then try to beat much of the weekend traffic going north (which we really didn't manage to do even that early in the day).
Here in New Hampshire we only have 2 local TV stations. One is PBS and the other is WMUR, channel 9 out of Manchester. Channel 9 does a weekly viewer's choice for various things, one of them being the best lobster roll in the state. (And for those of you who stop by my blog frequently, you know how much I like a good lobster roll in the summer. This viewer's choice is one I actually pay attention to- smile.) The winner is always the Poor People's Pub in Sanbornville, a part of the town of Wakefield.
