Greetings! Time does fly, and before I realized it, my bi-weekly post turned into a tri-weekly post. My professional schedule continues to be hectic, plus I had additional personal commitments too. Therefore, I got off schedule. Please accept my apologies.

I had not had a chance to work on my art journal, so this weekend I took a break to work on a page. I found this quote by Juan Ramón Jiménez about changes, which I found quite inspirational. In case you are not familiar with Jiménez, he is the Spanish writer who received the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1956 for his lyrical poetry. One of my favorite books of his is Platero y Yo (Platero and I), which is a charming monologue of a man with his silver colored donkey.

Although I have not had time to work on my art journal, I have made several cards for family and friends, including the two above. The second one is for Mike, one of my best friends. We will both be celebrating our birthdays this week over dinner. Him and his wife are in the process of selling their house in town, so this may be the last time we will be able to do that for a while. We have shared lots of ups and downs for nearly 16 years, so it will be a bittersweet celebration.

Julia's What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday #336
I do not consider myself a scrapbooker. However, I have enjoyed preserving special memories through my Smash Folio for a little over a year. In this page, I tried to capture our trip to Texas A&M University, during which we celebrated my youngest daughter's birthday a couple of weeks ago. She is a beautiful, smart and good natured young lady whom my wife and I consider to be a true blessing. Although it rained almost continuously during the 3 days we were there, our spirits were never dampened.
