Trudging on

I had a bit of stomach flu in the middle of the night and feel pretty worthless this morning. But I am going to try to go to work. And hopefully I can just work through it. The only thing with something like this is the exhaustion that accompanies it. I feel like I could sleep for a week.

The above picture is inside the same barn as the photo from yesterday, just facing the opposite wall. There was a picture I took immediately before this one that looked like a big fog cloud was right in front of the ladder on the left. This one was taken about 15 seconds later and it was gone. Weird, huh?

Last night I made 2 new 8X10 journals and I will list them today. Today after work I will hopefully list a couple of the 6X8, and they should be ART journals!! I've mentioned that I went to the paper store on Sunday. Well, I felt all the paper, I asked questions, I wandered around. And I bought some thicker paper for my art journals. Paper that will stand up to not only crayons, markers, colored pencils, pen, and ink like all of them will... but paper that will stand up to wet media as well!

I am also toying with the idea of offering journals with affirmations or quotes dispersed through them. That is in the planning stage. It's a journal sort of week! I also received a special order of 5 of the 6X8 ones to take on my trip, so I will be working on those very soon!

Hopefully the coming weekend will bring photo opportunities... we will be traveling. In 2002, we had a friend killed by a drunk driver. He was a very close friend to me, my husband (now my ex), and our children. So every year he has a sushi dinner in honor of our friend, Eric. It's always a nice occassion where we can remember...

I hope that we find the energy today to do what makes us happy. And can breeze through the necessary parts of our day.

That's sad about your friend - but I hope you enjoy your sushi :) And that you feel better! I'm exhausted too... Lots of asthma this week :(
