Grown-Up (?) Vacation Bible School for One

 I loved Vacation Bible School!

Did any of you go?

Did you love it?

Hand me some paper, scissors, glue and let me lose!

I was the happiest kid in the US of A.

And that has not changed.  





A couple months back I told you about a little project I was starting.

My very own book of collected quotes and passages.

So much fun!

This book is always pretty close by, so while I'm reading, playing on Facebook, or searching out a particular word, or quote, poem or song lyric, i can write it in my book. 

 It's a little exercise I'm enjoying lots.

The book itself has evolved into a bit of a "Junque Journal."

I have not been able to resist the call of colored pens and pencils, scraps of paper, stickers, washi tape, etc.

I open my book and randomly start decorating.  There is no theme.  No rhyme nor reason.

Just - - -





It's all aimless, random, disorganized, undisciplined, lackadaisical, unmethodical fun.

I never know what I might find when I pick up my book to do a little journaling, or to jot down a passage or poem I just remembered or discovered.  

I just write.

And just write around the little collages and obstacles I haphazardly stuck on the pages.

I swear, the littlest things can make a girl happy.  😊

Like I might be 7 years old again with glue and finger paints smeared all over myself wearing a hat made from newspaper.

As you can see, perfection is not part of this game.

Just kid like fun.

Being a grown-up is over rated.

Have I mentioned how much I love being retired?

Y'all, life is good.

"Being a grown-up is overrated." I love that. And, I'm so excited about my upcoming retirement!
