T Stands for Two Words

The two words are

Not much happening here...
except for Hubby and I nursing
each other's symptoms.
And tea. Lots and lots of tea.

Me wearing my husband's bathrobe

But I'm actually feeling somewhat
better now. It's been about 11 days.  Pretty
discouraging when people tell you
they've been trying to get well 
for over a month though.  And I had the
flu shot!

But it's part of life, and we do the
best we can, right?  We gotta have

  I'll be honest. Staying home for 10 days
straight made me pretty stir crazy. But
I'm on the mend. Hope you and yours are
staying healthy and are doing fine.
Appropriately linking up, belatedly,
for Bleubeard and Elizabeth's T Day, as
lemon, raspberry, and green teas have
been my main beverages this week!

Hobonichi Highlights from 2017

I thought it might be fun to revisit
some of my journal pages from 2017.

These are all in the Hobonichi Techo Planner,
English A6 size. (About 4" x 6") so the drawings
are pretty small.

It's my place to write about each day,
and add drawings/collage/art.

2017 seems to have been a year for
flowers, fruit and animals...

oh, and pastry.

A lot of cups of coffee..

a lot of steps on the FitBit...

and a lot of fun drawings and quotes.
Hope you've enjoyed the mix!

It's not too late to start your own journal.  Even
if you can't draw, you can enjoy yourself cutting
images out of magazines, using craft supplies,
and documenting your day. How about it?

Make 2018 your year for Creativity!

Techo Tuesday

A new year, a new Hobonichi Techo...
interesting to see that the 2017 journal
has doubled in thickness from the
drawing, painting, collage, and other
remnants of life that have been 
adhered to the pages!

Looking towards enjoying new 
adventures in 2018...

Have you ever drawn your breakfast?
Note the little coffee cup, egg and toast 
on the left page.  (I need a hot cup of
coffee or tea to wake up in the mornings!)
Said doodle 'qualifies' me to link
 up to the T Tuesday blog hop,
from which I've been absent too long.
Stop by for a beverage and a chat!

I'd much rather draw and paint in
my journal than do housework...
how about you?
