As I mentioned yesterday, I scribbled many things in my notebook through the day that I could use as ‘something learned’, but overall, I decided that the biggest lesson of the day was just how many things there are that make me smile!!
The sunshine, my boys all smart & ready for a new term, having the house to myself for a good part of the day, a trip to the hairdressers, an unexpected parcel in the post, a telephone call from my sister, spending the last hour before sunset in the village pub garden with Lee & sipping virtuously on diet Coke!
I am always big on counting blessings, I tend to be a glass-half-full kind of person, & yesterday I probably didn’t smile any more than usual, but because I was more ‘self aware’ it showed me just how good the day-to-day actually is!
Among other things, this class gives you a reason to step back & take stock of what happens each day, instead of just working on auto-pilot. I’m sure before the month is through there’ll be the possibility of a down day to document, no-one ever knows what is around the corner, but I’ll cross that bridge when I get to it!!
So, here’s my page for what I learned on September 3rd…
Out of the ‘Try Something New’ basket came ‘Create a background with three bold stripes of colour or pattern’, so that was where I started!!
I felt it needed the larger photo & apart from a couple of rub-ons & a few adhesive pearls, absolute minimum embellies!!
It’s our wedding anniversary on Monday & he just said “why wait till then?” But will this be my inspiration for ‘what I learned on September 4th’?…or will I cheat (don’t worry, we have Shimelles permission!!) & save it for another day?
Well, you’ll have to wait to see tomorrow!!!
Thanks for stopping by! Hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend! : )
