T Tuesday

I am learning to make blog posts from my Android smartphone... It's a whole new learning experience. Maybe there will be a new computer in the future, but that would be assuming we find time to go shop for one...

Not sure I will be able to figure out the link up process, but do visit Elizabeth over at Altered Book Lover for  a beverage and a chat.

T Tuesday: Techo, Tea, and Treasures

Some days my Hobonichi Techo becomes
a Bullet Journal with illustrations.
A Bullet Journal (or Planner, or Organizer) 
seems to be one of the current
 enthusiasms On-Line these days. 
All types of Planners are available.
(and accessories to go with them)
I am NOT that organized.
Writing stuff down does help...or else
I will forget the errands I intended to
do before I even get out the door!
And I do love to make it pretty...
and fun...and random. instead of tea. Most days.
I did not draw these monsters. They
are stickers. Aren't they cute?!
Sometimes I get grumpy about rain
 and dreary, cloudy days.

And then, just in time for my eye
doctor appointment, and the dreaded
dilation of the eyes, the sun comes out!
I won't complain though. Sunshine cheers
me up immensely.  And cheap sunglasses
(can't you hear ZZ Top singin' it?)
are really helpful. I actually put a pair
of clip-on sunglasses on my prescription
glasses, and then another pair of 
sunglasses over that!

Poor hubby had some unpleasant
oral surgery, so I've been trying to
figure out what soft foods can
'make a meal.'  (I don't have a blender)
Hence the list of mushy foods.
Mashed potatoes and gravy seems
to be his favorite...but he's 
dreaming of milkshakes.

I hope you will stop by my
to see what my 2016 Fake character is 
drawing and painting...can you
guess what my character does?

Linking up with Bleubeard and Elizabeth
for the T Tuesday blog hop, in which we
share a beverage and whatever is on
our minds. Stop by for some interesting
photos and activities, maybe even 
some treats along with a beverage.

Techo Tuesday

Hobonichi Techo
illustrated diary/art journal of sorts.
A tea bag wrapper made into a
little pocket in my Techo...

which qualifies me to 
Link up with Elizabeth and Bleubeard's
T Tuesday group. Every Tuesday we share a 
beverage, and pretty much anything
else that's going on.  Elizabeth has been
sharing some creative recycling tutorials,
so check them out!

I showed these 'pear trees' previously,
but the blank space beside them needed
something. Enter the painted scrap of 
paper...just for a fun contrast. It may 
also need a word above that...we'll see.

Any bit of random info can 
go in here...

I like the sound of "some serious
monkey business..."  love 
Curious George! Saw this in a 
cute new book, (sorry, didn't write down
the title) and it looked like it could be 
used as a high school graduation present. 
 It had fun observations 'for life' from 
Curious George's misadventures...

Acckk! I am so over snow right now.
I think there may be some serious
groundhog hunting going on around here.
Watch out Buckeye Chuck and 
Punxatawny Phil...

I invite you to visit my Fake Journal blog
to take a look my 2016 fake journal.
  See what you can figure out
 about my character...

What's up with you?

See if you can figure out 
anything about my character...
