I will never learn! There I was feeling all smug about keeping up with my LSNED pages…right up to day 7…then I fell behind & now it’s the 21st & I’m only just catching up! What I have been doing though is keeping my notebook handy to jot down my ‘lessons learned’ & for the most part, capturing those all important photo’s for illustration! (I say ‘for the most part’ because I completely forgot to snap anything at the crop on Saturday, so I’m hoping that my good friend Karen will let me plagiarise her photo’s for my Sept 18th page?!!)
So, let me take you back in time to September 8th!
What did I learn on that day? Well, amazing myself, I learned that it takes me 45 minutes to swim 50 lengths of the Gym pool! I am not the strongest swimmer & when I first joined the gym back in November 2009, I could manage about 6 lengths before giving in & heading for the sauna. Then I would do ‘blocks’ of ten lengths with a sauna break between each & now I just get in & swim 50 without stopping!
To learn that I am taking less than a minute per length was a great feeling!
I shared with you on September 4th some photo’s of a bouquet of pink rosebuds that Lee had bought for me. I thought they were beautiful then, but they became more & more beautiful every day as they opened & revealed more & more perfect petals!
The last one held it’s beauty right up to September 15th.
I do love to have flowers in the house, but it also makes me sad when they go over, so I tend to favour pot plants & just keep cut flowers in one room!
I’m off now to continue playing catch-up with my LSNED pages…I also have two other LO’s to think about..one for TAAFOMFT’s latest challenge ‘My Favourite Poem’ & one for the first ‘Glee Club’ challenge over at Dixie Pieces, which entails using a Beatle song as the title! So, after a near scrap famine in August, it looks as if I’m going to be ‘feasting’ through September & October!
I’m looking forward to spending some quality scrapping (chatting!) time with friends on Thursday evening as we try out a new (to us) crop in the Cambridge area, so I’m hoping to get at least one LO completed there! I just need to get my planning head on & put together a kit for myself! Watch this space!!!
Thanks for dropping by & I hope everyone is enjoying these last few days of sunshine as we move on into Autumn! Come back soon : )
