This page is my "wonder" page. As in "I wonder when....I wonder why...." etc. Click on the stamped image to see the "wonder woman" a little closer. I did a lot of thinking while I was working in the yard and it helped me to deal with my recent struggle. Fortunately, my struggle is nothing that a trip to the gardening center can't handle! LOL! This is another background that was recently taught in a workshop. It's interesting to use this technique on a larger format rather than on a tag. I can get used to this.
I would have to choose the hottest weekend of the year to do some gardening. Any other weekend I would have gladly declined to work in the yard amending soil, planting new flowers and dividing overgrown lilies. But I was bit by the garden bug and there was nothing I could do about it. My lower buttocks (is there really such a thing or is it just me? LOL!) and upper back thighs are beginning to feel a little better. I managed to bend over an inch more today. And when I went outside to check out the new plantings, they were still standing up straight and not droopy! Mission accomplished.
My current journal spread was kept to a bare minimum. Just art, not words. The heat kept me from sitting in one spot to write or search for words. Did I mention it was 98 yesterday and hit 100 today in Los Angeles? Anyway, the art I created was based on the last two days of being out in the garden. It actually became my escape from the realities of stubborn aging parents. I love them both and only want what's best for them and sometimes they don't get it. I suppose I can thank them that I went a little overboard with my debit card in Home Depot's gardening center this past weekend and for forcing me to get out in the yard and get dirty! So, THANKS MOM! LOL!
