Our weekend started with a lovely birthday dinner on Friday night with Tracy’s sister and brother-in-law at a new Italian restaurant. Delicious food; good conversation!
Saturday I spent most of the day working on a project I’ll be able to share next month. I also spent some time watching a webinar hosted by Capture Your 365 in celebration of their 6th birthday. One of my favorite sessions was on creating flat lays. Afterwards, I created one to post in the Facebook group for their birthday bash.
I’m so glad I rejoined CY365 this year. I’m picking up my camera every day, and being inspired by the photographs shared in the gallery. I also worked on the assignments for an online class on photography and visual journaling that started last week. More on that soon.
We were busy yesterday. Both Tracy and I were communion servers at the early church service. Although bitter cold (it was 6° when we left for church,) it was a bright sunny day, good for a drive to Buffalo for lunch and discussion with our book group. I spent the evening watching women’s college basketball games on television. I’ve been following the University of Connecticut team for at least 15 years, and now that we’re closing in on the big NCAA tournament, I’m interested in watching all their possible competition as well.
What about the mail? Well, like Melissa, I’m not in the need for any more books, but that’s what arrived in the mail this week.
Although I love my Kindle, reading a paper-bound book is still my preference, especially if I think I might want to underline or make margin notes. These all fit that category, and at least two of them will be accompanying me on our upcoming road trip.
I also ordered an inexpensive, but clever, pencil sharpener.You can see the numbers on the dial---choose the number and you will get a different kind of point as shown in the diagram. I bought it for my colored pencils hoping that choosing #1 will extend the life of the pencils.
Waving to Sian at From High in the Sky and other memo makers! Here’s to a great week!
