I thought I would show you a slice of my life. . a few of my interests. I have posted a lot about my crocheting and sewing, and furniture painting. But, I do have other interests. And one I have recently started to do again.
I have been going to "Paint Night". This is my latest painting.
I am really enjoying painting again. In fact that is all I want to do is paint.
To go along my obsession with painting, I have started "coloring"
in coloring book. Can I just say it is so relaxing and fun.
I found this fun coloring book at Wal-mart. Now remember I am a
colorful person, so my paintings and coloring reflect that.
This coloring book has a page with each picture and it asks questions
such as what emotions I felt coloring this picture, or it will ask
what memories I have connected to a particular picture.
It is almost like a window into my life.
Being the journal writer that I am this coloring book has been
fun for me to do. Oh, there are many more pages
and I have many more books of coloring .
Speaking of Journals
I have stacks of journals. I write in my journal almost every day.
Yip, I am a journal keeper.
I will let you have a little glimpse, but don't read what I write.
I have told my children, not until I am dead and gone are they
allowed to read my journals.
I draw and I play with my handwriting. Just to make it interesting.
Journal writing is actually good mental therapy. I am able to write
my thoughts and feeling down and somehow it makes me feel good.
I don't know when I started, I know I wrote in a diary as a young girl.
For a few years I just jotted down thoughts and activities and then
I evolved into a full routine of writing my thoughts and my
activities in a book. Now I am doing a thing they call
Bullet Journaling. It is really fun. I will show you once
I get going with it.
So there you have a little idea of what my interests are and
what keeps me busy.
Have a wonderful November!
