Hi everyone. Happy Earth Day.
And 🎂Happy Birthday 🎉 to my good friend Elizabeth too. I hope you have a great "bearthday".
Thanks to those of you who sent well wishes with my second shot. I woke up with a low grade fever, and Tylenol helped for awhile. I had hoped I would just keep improving during the day, but as soon as the Tylenol wore off my fever hopped up a bit again. My plan was to take the day easy and that I did. I think I caught up on a month's worth of sleep-ha-ha. I finished writing this post last night shortly after taking some Tylenol, so I'm hoping as you read this I am back to feeling myself.
Today I thought I would share this collaged and painted journal page with you to celebrate Mother Earth.
I particulary like the tree on the left. I used some textured paper to make it, and I love how it really looks like bark.
I am linking up to Art Journal Journey where this month's theme is Inspired By. Chris, also known as Pear Shaped Crafting and I are hosting in Eileen's memory.
This week is also US National Park Week.
I'm a big fan of National Parks, as well as National Monuments and Historic places. There are 423 of these in the US. I have made it to 137 of them in my life, so far. I don't think I'll ever get to them all, as they keep adding new ones, but that's OK. I am hoping to add some more in the future though, once travel is easier.
Here's some photos from a few places I have visited. I took the photos off some of my old blog posts, and depending on the camera I used for the photo, a few aren't as clear as others.
Lassen National Park
Lava Fields National Monument
Crater Lake National Park
Redwood National Park
Lake Mead National Recreation Area
Death Valley National Park
Glacier National Park
Saguaro National Park
Acadia National Park
Northern Cascades National Park
And the only one in my state of New Hampshire, St. Gauden's National Monument.
Arches National Park
Biscayne National Park
Canyonlands National Park
Everglades National Park
Mesa Verde National Park
Mount Ranier National Park
Badlands National Park
Devils Tower National Monument
Mount Rushmore National Monument
The last park I visited was Chaco Canyon in New Mexico in February of 2020, just before the world came crashing to a close with covid. I wonder what my next park will be?
Thanks for visiting.
