This month our theme was about our every day lives. I got to thinking about how there are things that I do at the same time every day. For instance, every single weekday at 8:20 we are racing to not miss the bus. Monday through Thursday at 3:40 I am in the car driving to the gym. Thursdays at 7:00 we are headed to the church for youth activities. On Sundays, we go to church (though the hour on that one changes each year!). This schedule is what makes me happy and keep our lives orderly and centered.
Then there are the things that I never write on a calendar, but they happen pretty regularly. For instance I launder the bed linens every Monday morning. Like clockwork. Nigel practices the piano for half hour each night, but not at a set time. One year, when the kids were smaller and our Friday nights we calmer, we did a pizza picnic and Psych every Friday night.
As I thought about our repeating patterned lives, I got excited to think about making pages based upon a time. And repeating elements. And our calendar. I can't wait to sit down this week and put some together. I might even see a mini album in my future. Having such focus will be certain to bring results, and to give my journaling a starting point.
Here is my first layout! It's on linens. I love them--especially when they are clean. Mmm. The smell of happiness.
What do you think? Doesn't it sound fun? Will you join me in creating some time/pattern/calendar/schedule pages? Pretty please? It's going to be so fun!
