Thursday Journal with Neet

 The words this week are 'there's not enough hours in the day to do all the stuff I'm not doing to do'            I have quite a long list that would fit into that category. This was a difficult one to link in with Alison's theme on Art Journal Journey which is Play it again Sam, where we illustrate a favourite song or film. This week the only thing I could think of that fits our quote is a song by an Australian called Inxs with a song titled Not enough time, but to be honest I had to look it up as nothing else seemed to fit. I hope it's OK with Alison.                                                                                                                                         Sonia was in her lounge, talking to her dog Scamp, just as she does when there is no-one else around. She had made a list of the jobs she needed to do around the flat before her mum came for her monthly check up, where she made sure Sonia was doing all the jobs properly. Doing a bit of a tidy up was OK, dusting as long as she didn't have to dust all the ornaments and putting all her clothes away was just about OK. If she started now she would just have time to achieve those jobs. Now all the ones Sonia wasn't going to do included, cleaning the oven, washing the windows, mending some clothes, weeding her little garden and vacuuming. Luckily her vacuum had broken a few days ago so that was the only legitimate excuse she had for not doing things. Sonia decided to leave those jobs on the list as she never knew when the urge to do one or two of the jobs might happen, you never know her mum might feel sorry for her and do them when Sonia was at work. With that hopeful thought in mind, Sonia decided to get a nice lunch ready for her mum as well.

Thursday Journal with Neet.

 The older I get, the more I see the error of my ways, but the less I care, these are the words this week. As soon as I saw this I thought of Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman in 'The bucket list" where they made a list of all the things they waned to do or see before they died.                                                             Geraldine has just done the opposite and has made a list of all the things that she has done wrong and all the people she has annoyed. But as she was telling her cat Lucy, I know I shouldn't have annoyed my parents by dropping out of university, but I really didn't like it and I was going into debt instead of earning money. How was I supposed to feed myself and you on nothing. I also upset my best friend by going out with her boyfriend, what was wrong with that, she was going to finish with him anyway. I was also annoyed with the local shop who refused to stock your favourite cat food, and I now have to go to the other end of town for it. But at the end of the day those and all my other errors really don't bother me, I'm getting too old and set in my ways to let it bother me. Her cat meowed in agreement, well she thought she did.

Tag Tuesday - Blue and green

 My two favourite colours Blue and green, are the theme Valerie has chosen for Tag Tuesday. Here is my second one. This one has a lot of texture, even more than the last one.

 The words this week are  "If it requires getting out of bed, I'm not doing it" Sylvia shares a flat with her best friend Linda from college, and last night they had a party in the flat. Not too many people, but enough to make a mess to clear up the next morning. Linda was far more domesticated than Sylvia, but was determined to get her friend to help. She had tried the cup of coffee in bed, had offered toast, but Sylvia had refused both.When Linda started a question with " could you come out and.......... Sylvia immediately said : If it requires getting out of bed, I'm not doing it" Linda felt like singing Matt Bianco's song " Get out of your lazy bed" but her voice left a lot to be desired and thought that might make Sylvia get under the quilt even faster. Personally I think Sylvia is mean not to help, and I hope she does get out of bed and do some clearing up.

I am linking this to Art Journal Journey where Alison's theme is Play it again Sam  Alison wants us to illustrate our favourite song or movies. This is the only thing I could think of to illustrate our saying, hope it's OK.

Tag Tuesday - Blue and green.

 The theme set by Valerie on Tag Tuesday is Blue and green.  For this tag I have used a seaside theme with lots of texture using tissue paper, yarn and micro beads.

 To say I struggled to tie this in with Art Journal Journey would be an understatement. The theme set by Alison of Craftytrog is Play it again Sam, where Alison wants us to use a favourite film or song. As all my favourite songs or films don't have anything to do with a bath or shower, it was not going to be easy. The words to use this week are Sometimes I take baths, it's hard to drink wine in a shower. Betty is very fond of wine, and decided that tonight she would sit in the bath with the biggest glass of wine she could manage.  Normally she would use the rain shower and that would make drinking wine at the same time impossible. She could sing the catchy song " Raindrops keep falling on my head, The blues they send to great me, won't defeat me, it won't be long till happiness steps up to greet me. when the bath started to get cold she could turn on the rain shower and sing the song again. It sounded like a great plan, even though her cats thought it was a bit weird.

Sorry Alison, if this does't fit feel free to take it off the list.
