The best laid plans of bloggers… sigh. I had planned on giving you all a May Word update today. But Carolyn posted this weekend that word update would be next Monday.
Okay… that works, because it gives me a few more days to contemplate Four Thousand Weeks, which I will finish up this morning. I am enjoying it and I am adding bits to my Word Sheet for May. Last month, thanks to Kym’s encouragement, I signed up for Ali Edward’s One Little Word Year Long Workshop and I spent much of April catching myself up. I don’t plan on doing a separate Word Journal – a scrapbooker I am not – but I am loving the creative conversations that are inspiring new ways of thinking.
And speaking of Journals… someone brought this journaling opportunity to my attention yesterday. I immediately sent the link to my daughters… what a fun activity to inspire Genevieve, Winston, and Olivia as June begins. I am going to participate as well…and I am so excited!
As MacroMay is drawing to a close, I continue to learn how to use my pseudo-macro iPhone lens. This week’s wins:
But here we are with another Monday, another week, another fresh page, another opportunity. And thinking about Monday in that way is exciting… don’t you think?
And it was with those thoughts in my head that I set about my weekly list which was not the same as last week’s … no carry overs… a true fresh page.
I leave you with my Beardy Attempts from yesterday… yes, I made two and I might make another one this morning, lol.
Happy Fresh Start Monday, everyone! See you all back here on Wednesday!
Love those purple leaves in your First picture. June in the U K is Go Wild month when we make an effort on a daily basis to embrace nature. I kept a nature journal for a couple of years but it proved to be a bit if struggle.Good luck with your journalling.
Hard to believe we are closing in on the end of May already!! That nature journaling link looks so cool for kids (and adults). Here’s hoping this week is a good one!! Your beards are so fun!!!
your macros are gorgeous. I love how a camera makes you (us) more present to the beauty that surrounds us that we might ordinarily overlook. Thanks for the nature link!!
Happy Two (Maybe Three) Beard Monday! I hope you arrive at one you and your gnome are happy with. Love those macro shots!
This post is like a treasure box! Thanks for sharing that gem of a journaling project… my brain lit up in all kinds of ways it’s been craving.
Lovely macro shots, Kat! 🙂 And that nature journaling link looks like so much fun! My kids and I used to do a lot of nature journaling up north at our cottage when they were young. We collected samples of leaves and wildflowers, and we drew a lot of pictures. One year we went hog-wild and made plaster casts of animal tracks. Good fun! It’s wonderful to look back at them now. (And pretty funny. . . )
Those photos are some stunning wins! I like your perspective on Mondays being a chance to start fresh, though good luck convincing my tween of that — she hates Mondays with a passion! I confess I hate them less now that I work from home. Your gnome beards are such fun! Can’t wait to see where the next clue takes you.
Your photos are beautiful. I wonder where those gnome beards will end up? The nature journaling looks like fun, especially for kids.
Those beards! Oh my goodness.
And I’m really enjoying your micro photos. They’re amazing!
