an imptomptu trip to Korea, some pictures taken while out walking one thing Asian Pacific countries have in common is Dunkin' Donuts, they are almost on every corner and French bakeries Jesus loves you and Mexicana Chicken power walking behind the locals through a market all that walking works up an appetite, no problem there are resturants every where pecan chicken from the Thai place a garden tucked in by the alley and building A moving company hauling stuff up to the top apartment. I could have sat here and watched this show all day. and then there is always the amusing stuff that is found in vending machines. Seriously, if you are going to print English on your product, hire someone who has good command of English words. I would never have allowed this product to go to print, if I worked for this company.
Amazing things observed on Monday -a russian boar along the road (probably not so amazing for whoever hit it with their vehicle) -an incredible waffle flip from one side of the toaster to the other (greek yogurt and waffles for dinner) -the olive bar had dolmas and the incredible proscuitto feta stuffed tomatillos (I indulged with a purchase of a small container) -a great horned owl spotted in the oak tree during a late night walk with Ralph the Dog (it was a thrill to watch it fly off under the street light)
a good spot to spend with journals nothing fancy maybe this weekend, I will paint the tiny wood bench how about purple or electric blue...or eggplant...or cover it with vintage ledger pages. So many choices even with a small space. inspected and approved
The owl was quickly sketched and I didn't really care for it. But after some stamping and collage, it works for me.
The printed text really has nothing to do with the page. Sometimes after I read a paperback and no one wants it, I will stick my finger in randomly between the pages and tear out a section of the paperback and glue it on a journal page. Then the paperback gets tossed into the recycle bin. It's just a fun random thing to do in your journal.
My word for the month is - PATIENT, as in trying to be patient in a month of poor communication and waiting on inspections. Once this last house closes this coming week, I can roll the gypsy wagon on to my next location. Smitten is the word for this Chesterfield sofa. If I find myself in a more permanent living situation, I may start a quest to find the perfect Chesterfield. It wasn't so long ago, I despised Chesterfields. Now the love affair has been rekindled.
There could be hundreds of these inspirations journals, I started keeping a scrapbook type journal as a young girl. I am glad I never tossed them out as it's fun to see how your tastes and interests change over the years but the core of what moves you stays the same.
