Sunday Salon

Hello Friends and happy weekend. I have a very busy work week ahead so I’m going to make the most of this Sunday. Perhaps a nap and of course some reading time but for now I’m here for another Sunday Salon and thank you to Deb at Readerbuzz for hosting the chat.

What I’m watching: I’m hooked on journaling videos on YouTube. Sometimes I prefer to watch art journaling videos or techniques on junk journaling but lately I’m into Traveler’s Notebooks. Two channels I enjoy are Job’s Journal and Skylar Hand Studio. I’ve been keeping a TN journal for a couple of years now and typically I write in it a few times a month but these last couple of months I haven’t been very inspired so watching these videos helps jumpstart my creativity.

What I’m reading: I’m about to finish This House is Haunted by John Boyne. Not as chilling as The Haunting of Maddy Clare by Simone St. James which I read recently but this has had some good moments. I’m still in the mood for some scary reads but not sure which one I’ll pick up next.

What made me smile this week: Beautiful Asters.  After the crazy freeze we had in February we did lose some plants. I wasn’t sure if these were going to come back but they are looking beautiful and best of all the bees love them. Every time I pass them I see a bunch of bees buzzing around them.

What’s in my tote bag: For work this week, aside from my laptop, notebook and wallet, what else am I carrying in my tote bag? Lip balm is a must. I miss lipstick but not fun when wearing a mask.  My other necessity is a fountain pen. I have become a pen snob! Since working from home I have been strictly using fountain pens and now I realize that a regular ball point pen feels weird. So one of my Lamy Safari pens is going in my bag. You’re probably wondering what about a book? Thanks to Libby, I’ll be set.

What is my quote for the week: “Each day, and the living of it, has to be a conscious creation in which discipline and order are relieved with some play and pure foolishness.” ~ May Sarton. Isn’t that wonderful? Must remember this.

Have a wonderful weekend, enjoy some good reads and have a great week ahead!
