I've been going to the park on my lunch hour for a little quiet time with my new / old journal. I've loved getting out of the office for an hour to cut and paste and layer paper. It's easy for me to get caught up at work. Taking a little art break is a very good thing. Plus, there's a fountain near my little table where there are kids splashing around and mothers discussing sunscreen. It's like I'm in a completely different world.
Tomorrow is garbage day, so I drug the garbage and recycling bins out to the curb. When I opened the garage door, I thought I was in the south - there was the sound of 1000 grasshoppers! We never have that sound here in our little piece of suburbia. I quite liked it.
