Some Pages, Some Stuff

I don’t know what’s going on with me lately. I just don’t seem to be able to sit down and focus on a task and actually get it completed. I’ve got all kinds of things on the go, none of which are completed. It’s leaving me feeling very undone and discombobulated. Tomorrow, I need to FOCUS on one thing at a time and actually get something done. I’ll let you know how that goes.

Having said all that, here are the first 2 pages of my Project 365 album which I did manage to get done last week. Notice all those little snowflakes on the pages? It is my intention to add them to the pages I’ve already done for January.





Now I need to get off my duff and come up with my page design for February. I may have to scraplift one of Barb’s lovely 365 pages.

This year for Christmas I made digital calendars for myself, my mother and my mother in law. I haven't included the monthly grids but here are the calendar pages:














We had a good weekend full of ski lessons and birthday parties. Saturday night was a sleepover for both the girls in Burlington. They came home tired and happy. Dave and I took the opportunity to head to the ROM in Toronto and just hang out. It’s so nice to have that time together to reconnect. Life gets so busy sometimes with kids and programs and life, it’s nice to just slow it down a bit and be a couple instead of responsible parents. It’s also nice to know that after being together as long as we have, we can still talk for hours and make each other laugh. For that, I am thankful.

Now the world can see my beautiful calendar - thank you again. (I am writing in it - it will form part of my "ongoing calendar memoir"! - and I take care not to press hard on the paper. You seem to be keeping the ROM going these days. Lovely use of time and always a conversation provoker (?).

P.S. I was actually able to persuade the computer to enlarge yr 365 pages and was delighted to learn that my painting has found a home. Am so glad u like it, even tho' it's an acrylic (!). It was fun for me to see and read about your daily life. Living so far away, I need all the info I can get. Do't worry, I heard yr comments about web-cams and grandparents loud and clear....XXX
