A Silly post

Heeeeeeeeeeeeelp! This week is flying by quicker than I can think! I got next to nothing done yesterday. I had to go to the dentist's - no comment! and managed to start lots of different things, but didn't get much finished. One of the things I started is a new journal, where I want to try to do a page a day; perhaps some sketching, writing, doodling or whatever, just something to use each evening when I'm sitting around or watching TV. I started yesterday evening with a title page, and I hope I will be able to keep it up!

And Christine gave me a letter - the letter T! She wrote on her blog yesterday that she had been given an F! Okay,to explain I'll show you my *T*:
Something I like: Tangerines
Something I dislike: Tea
Something I need: Training - I mean some sportive training!
Somewhere I've been: Turkey
And I think I will add one more -
Something I enjoyed but I'm glad to be quit of : Teaching.
So, that was my *T*.

And I've got another joke from Narda:

How to Tell the Sex of a Fly
A woman walked into the kitchen to find her husband stalking around with a fly swatter . "What are you doing?" she asked. "Hunting Flies" he responded. "Oh. ! Killing any?" she asked. "Yep, 3 males, 2 Females," he replied. Intrigued, she asked. "How can you tell them apart?" He responded, "3 were on a beer can, 2 were on the phone....

Okay, that was it for today. Have a good day, take care, and thanks for visiting!

  11. Thanks for the joke- I really needed a smile this morning!
    I love the idea of "a scribble a day" I've been needing to start something similar.....perhaps your will inspire me? And as for productivity, I've had very little this week as well- it was a holiday weekend and my husband was hurt and had to go to the doctor, and it seemed there was always something going on all week that kept me busy! See you tomorrow at PPF!

  12. Your journal title page is great! And that joke is funny! LOL!
