I’ve been seeing a lot of journaling videos come across my YouTube feed. I’ve even watched a few.

There’s been art journals, where you create mini works of art. Frankly, these stress me out. My creativity doesn’t work that way.

There are scrapbook journals which tend to have way to many flaps and pockets which means constantly removing them from their protective sheets to see everything.

Then there are the writing journals. You know, with prompt you scribble some random thoughts.

All I can think is that I would see them title Exhibit A.

Which leaves me in a bit of a dilemma—I’d like to make one but I don’t want to use it. Which is a little crazy kinda like my life. Ah, well, c’est la vie.

Until next time stay healthy.

Nearly gave myself a heart attack the other day. Sure there were great big Christmas in July celebrations at all my favorite crafty places, but then some folks started to release fall items.

Now, in my head, Halloween comes before fall. Fall things are Thanksgiving things. Maybe living in Phoenix the vast majority of my life has left me out of the whole fall starts in September thing, but I make no apologies for beginning my Halloween decorating in September, maybe August, rarely July, unless there’s a sale.

Either way, I ended up visiting my favorite small online businesses for paper crafting items. Fall themes filled the new release pages, but I managed to find a few Halloween items in the end.

Until next time, stay crafty:D

oh no

Many of you may have heard of the saying—life happens when you make other plans.

I had planned a relaxing weekend chilling with Netflix, Tubi and Hulu.

Instead, I was locked out of my Amazon account which meant no fire stick. Also, no music and no kindle. It was quite irritating.

I needed to make an inquiry to find out what had happened, but that required that I log into my account. Yeah, there’s something wrong with that picture. Anyway, I managed to find the customer service number and the lady was kind enough to enter the inquiry for me.

Two days later, I got an email letting me know that amazon was looking into it and would get back to me within 24-48 business hours. Which made me think, does amazon work 8 or 10 hour days?

Anyway, I decided that would require at least a week so I hooked up my blue ray player to get Netflix and Hulu. Then my son borrowed my daughter’s Chromecast and I installed all the apps on my iPad.

I have to say there is something magical about casting, but I there was also a lot of buffering.

On a whim on Saturday, I decided to log onto my amazon account. Lo and behold, it worked.

So for now, all is right with the world.

Until next time, stay healthy.

Sleeping in

I was up late last night, not getting into bed until almost 2am.

The hubbinator was most understanding. He fed the cats and let me sleep in.

The puppy, not so much. She woke me twice. Both times whining and rolling around so she could sleep on me.

Finally, I got up and ate breakfast.

Now, we can both sleeping on the couch. Apparently, sleeping is fine, just not in the bedroom after a certain time. Who knew?

Until next time, stay healthy.

Weekend Series

Well, we didn’t do much this weekend aside from the usual hours of errands.

But we did binge watch 2 series.

The first was Only Murders in the Building which our youngest recommended. It was pretty funny and clever. We only watched the first season, so we’ll wait for season 2 for next weekend.

The other was Zomboat. Which featured a gamer and her sister deciding to flee a zombie outbreak by boat. The zombies were slow, thankfully the boat was just a little faster:D. I hope there is another season of this show.

Hope you had a pleasant weekend, too.

Until next time, stay healthy.
