High temperature

The temperature is so high, I feel like I am wilting. Don't have the energy to achieve anything. The house is sweltering, the dog is panting (even after trying to cool him down) even the cold water isn't cold.

eye trouble

Been having a lot of bother with my eye, just the usual tearing of the eyeball lining. Yes it is painful. It stops me from reading, journaling and makes me Extremely light intolerant. I will try and get a photo of the weird paraphernalia that I wear while suffering. One bonus is that I cannot do the dishes everyday as I miss seeing the dirty marks on them. The downfall is they pile up while I wait for my eye to recover enough to see what I am doing.
I have been trying to keep up with the Art Journal January with Milliande but I am so far behind it is not funny.  I am disappointed with what I have created so far. I will post some here even though I don't like them.

Floods and fires

My heart goes out to all the people involved in the floods in Queensland and New South Wales and the deliberately lit fires in Western Australia.
I am not anywhere near those areas but still feel the shock and pain, shedding tears for everyone there and their enormous losses.

Zutter blog hop

Wow, just surfed through the Zutter Bind It All blog hop, feel like I have just run a marathon. What a fantastic collection of ideas for scrapbooking and off the page projects. I love my bind it all machine, it makes it so easy to put together a journal.
Now I need to rest my weary eye.

Some journal pages

Better late than never..... a few of my journal pages as mentioned 3 days ago. I think I am uploading pics correctly???

3 creative studios

 Check this out.

So many classes, so little time

I have been busy having fun. Finished the first week of the Strathmore journal class with Pam Carriker, almost finished day 1 and day 2 from Milliande's January journal prompts and about to view day three's video prompt. These ladies (and others on the web) are wonderful with their help and easy to follow instructions. It is so appreciated by the many that have joined their classes.

All the while struggling to see with my painful eye. I keep ripping the top layers off the eyeball each night and sometimes through the day. I think I must pay the chemist his wages from all the eye drops I use LOL. I am saving for the laser surgery that I require as it is rather expensive because our government in its infinite wisdom, regards the operation as cosmetic surgery???? .... Are they for real. This is my eye I need to see with, not some silly beauty modification chosen from pride. Oh well must get off my soapbox (for now).

I will endeavour to upload my pictures later in the day :-)
