Monday again, and another week has begun; let's see what it brings!
I didn't get much done yesterday, just finished some journal pages and made the Decmeber calendar sheet for my friend. I think this is the first time that I have been finished so punctually!
I started the journal pages on Friday, using some paper napkins with images of Buddha, which I applied after painting the background with red, yellow and black acrylics, sprayed with spiced marmalade ink. I then added some sayings of Buddha. I am linking to AEDM at Creative Every Day
And this is my big, fat journal, almost full. When it is full - I have another 10 pages - I will paint the cover so it doesn't look so shabby!
And Narda sent some jokes yesterday, so here is the first one for you:
A Couple in their nineties are both having problems remembering things. During a checkup, the doctor tells them that they're physically okay, but they might want to start writing things down to help them remember ..
Later that night, while watching TV, the old man gets up from his chair. 'Want anything while I'm in the kitchen?' he asks.
'Will you get me a bowl of ice cream?'
'Don't you think you should write it down so you can remember it?' she asks.
'No, I can remember it..'
'Well, I'd like some strawberries on top, too. Maybe you should write it down, so as not to forget it?'
He says, 'I can remember that. You want a bowl of ice cream with strawberries.'
'I'd also like whipped cream. I'm certain you'll forget that, write it down?' she asks.
Irritated, he says, 'I don't need to write it down, I can remember it! Ice cream with strawberries and whipped cream - I got it, for goodness sake!'
Then he toddles into the kitchen. After about 20 minutes, The old man returns from the kitchen and hands his wife a plate of bacon and eggs.. She stares at the plate for a moment.
'Where's my toast ?'
Have a good day you all, take care, and thanks for dropping in!
