The last two days I have been in a funk. I think it is because the stretch of beautiful weather we have been having came to an end. I am glad for the rain because my plants and lawn really needed a drink but the gray skies give me a headache. Anyway, today when my morning got changed by the rain, I dressed myself up in my new boots and the amazing Ann Taylor skirt I found at the Goodwill and headed over to my nieces store to buy art supplies. She was having a great sale and we talked about travel and Paris and Ireland and all the fun places we should go to next. Then when I got home the books I ordered had come in the mail. It turned out to be a very nice day after all.

New way of journaling
I am trying out this new way of journaling. I just sketch out highlights of my day and write about it. I am finding it stretches me a bit more and then later I look back and can see what my day was like. I really think I am going to like this a lot. This is in preparation for my experiment that I am going to start in September where I am going to combine my datebook with my journal. I think I have an idea of how I am going to do it but will have to think it through to make sure it will work. Finding the right journal and datebook is kind of like finding the right purse. I am always on the hunt for the prefect one. I saw the movie Julie & Julia. Oh my goodness, I loved it! Meryl Streep is amazing. It took place in Paris and New York. That sold me from the first moment. I could so relate to how Julia loved Paris and I wished that I was as fearless as she was. As soon as I left the theater, I wanted to go right back in and see it again. I also loved the Julie character because of how she was lost and then found herself through blogging. She said that she was drowning and Julia reached out and pulled her right out of the ocean. And to top it off, they both have the most supportive and sweet husbands. The whole film was just wonderful.
