Happy Saturday everyone. It's a beautiful day here in New Hampshire. It is nice as my husband arranged for my 85 year old mother-in-law to have a little get together with her older siblings.If it was rainy it would not be such a good trip for them.
None of them drive long distances anymore so a few of his cousins (who are drivers) will be there. Since my MIL lives on a small lake during the summer at least us "youngins" (ha-ha, that sounds like we were are talking about our kids) can hang out down on the dock while the octogenarians socialize on the deck which doesn't require them to use the rough stone steps.
(And I am not trying to knock octogenarians. I know there are active octogenarians-like my mother, but I know my MIL with her back issues and her brother who has Parkinson's Disease are at least not as mobile as they used to be. But they do get around for certain!)
Anyhow, I am linking up to Chris' We Are Going challenge at Art Journal Journey Today I am sharing my travel journal from my Dakota trip earlier this summer.
I hand painted most of this spread, including the silos which I drew, painted and cut out. The North Dakota state is cut from a travel brochure and the bird from an old bird book as this is one of the species I saw which we don't have in my local area.
And a few of photos that helped inspire my page.
I still can't get over all the open land which we certainly don't have here in New Hampshire with all our trees.
Happy weekend and
Thanks for visiting also.
