well, i have still been plunking along in my little mokeskine. sometimes i get way behind and think about ignoring it, forgetting about it, putting it aside . . .
i was at work contemplating taking the "travel" out of my travel journal (aka taking it out of my purse and stashing it in a dark corner somewhere) when much to my delight i discovered my little first grader had a travel journal too. my enthusiasm for the project was instantly rejuvenated it. it's like that sometimes, isn't it? finding a like minded soul is often just what is needed to make life exciting once more. i immediately pulled mine out so we could "ooh" and "aah" over each others work and then set out to add a fresh page in each . . .
mine and hers, side by side . . .
she journals with both pictures and words. hey! i do that too!
does this look familiar?
she journals about her family . . .
hey! i do that too! g skiing . . .
pepito . . .
chichi . . .
we also both journal about the holidays and other random things . . .
cocoa daisy treats and outback with friends . . .
a birthday celebration at work . . .
a gift from a student and a really good book . . .
i am still puttering along through february. it's a fun little project and a treat to look back on, especially when i can share it with friends like her and you. :)
