Mondays are always a challenge... :-) I sometimes think of things to write over the weekends, but am trying to create a schedule and find a way to organize all the things I want to do... always looking for the day I can hire others to take them over for me. :-)
I was able to go to the downtown Portland (OR) Farmer's Market today and found some good things to eat. One of them is an unusual cucumber I haven't seen before... this should be interesting.
I also was finally able to go to the SCRAP store in the downtown area. I found a lot of great resources and would have spent a lot more money if I had it. :-) I did gravitate toward the craft book section, the old magazine resources, and some office supplies. For myself, I decided to buy a little ten cent booklet for kids about the sounds of the forest.
It was a good day, and long enough for my body.
Over the weekend I was able to get to the Walmart store I often go to for supplies I have been trying to get. I have been trying to wait for the school supply sales to start to get my YEARLY supplies of the things they have then, so there it was...already in the store. I spent more than I planned, but only bought things I have been planning to buy....well, except maybe one thing I discovered for $1.97 --- a pink pouch thing with a zipper-like design and a handy claw connector to hang it from somewhere. I wanted to remember the design.
I also found some flash drives to finally start sorting through my files and get them off computers and into a better place for now... more mobile from the two computers I use, one connected to the internet and one that isn't. I hope it won't take too long. I wanted to get a variety of color-coded drives to begin saving by topic, but that was just too much to spend. I will see how these two work out and try to get back later for more if it seems urgent. These are 2.0 drives and I heard the "new" ones are 3.0 -- and I don't yet know what that means for my files.
Mostly, I decided to get some art paper for acrylic paints because it said the paper keeps the paint from "bleeding" as you create. I usually just get watercolor paper, but want to experiment more. These should work out great, I think. I am looking forward to spending a block of time to paint.
I guess that is enough for today... lots to catch up with on Mondays... :-) for everyone.
