An August Monday

Mondays are usually days of low energy for me. The introvert in me is worn out from a weekend of being around a lot of people and trying to meet their needs in many ways. Mondays roll around and I am so thankful for the quiet and the mundane chores of laundry, dishes and catching up on emails and computer stuff. If I'm lucky I will even slip in reading a book too. It looks like today will be one of those days to take deep breaths and soak up the sounds of silence. Ahhh!
I would really like to create a journal page a day but lately it has been one or two a week. These are the two I finished this week. I am starting to transition my pages from just thoughts and ideas and quotes to things about my day. I am about to fill up my journal and start a new one and I have been thinking about combining my datebook with my journal. I'm not too sure exactly what that looks like but I may try it out for the fall and see where it leads. If I hate it then I can do something different and start fresh in January.

On this page I was trying out my panpastels and going off an idea that I saw Milliande do on Youtube. It was a quick way to get color on the page and the panpastels are one of my favs. I love her red hair and curls. OK, I guess I had better get going on those mundane chores I talked about.

I'm getting inspired to do more journaling myself. Gotta get offline and get to work :)

I love these Teri! I always mean for Mondays to be catch up, put away, laundry days, but for some reason or another I don't get accomplished all I plan!!! I like the thought of adding your daily life to it, I do that some in mine. I have also thought about combining my datebook and journal. Sometimes I want everything all together - but it does not work for me. I can get caught up in wanting it all in one place, but then I end up with something so big I cannot carry it around with me. So let me know if you come up with something that works!! I have added a few hand painted dividers in my planner.

I have not received a journal from Tricia yet.
