Daily Life

I finished another set of circle journal pages tonight. I was pretty worried about the theme at first, because it is "your daily routine" and I don't really have a daily routine. At least, not in the sense that a lot of people do. I don't work outside the home, so I don't have a strict time structure. But then I got to thinking that I really do a lot of the same things every day, just not necessarily at the same times each day. So I concentrated more on what I do than on when I do it, and had fun with it. So here you go, here are my pages. I put them together so you can see what they will look like side by side.

The journaling reads: "I am retired, and because of that, I don't live on a time schedule. But I do a lot of the same things every day. (1) I try to walk two miles most mornings. (2) I eat the same breakfast every day. (3) I usually read a book while I eat my breakfast and lunch. (4) I take good care of my cat, feeding him twice a day and emptying his litter box daily. (5) I am very lucky that my husband cooks dinner, but I do have to clean up after him (pretty small price to pay, I'd say). (6) I spend time on my laptop computer every day. (7) I sew with friends once a week. (8) I eat frozen yogurt most evenings. (9) I'm a chocoholic.

"I'm very happy with my life and I wouldn't change a thing!"

And by the way, I took the photo of myself in the mirror, then I flipped it in my software so that you can actually read the name on the camera. This way it looks like someone else is taking a picture of me taking a picture! LOL!! If I hadn't flipped it in my software, the name on the camera would have been in reverse. I was pretty proud of myself for figuring that one out. LOL!!

Hey Cheryl !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I love your circle journal page(s) and what a way to tell so much about yourself. I am also way way digging the way you took the photo of yourself taking the photo of yourself lol. I could repeat over and over again, but I'm not, I promise. Your life sounds pretty well structued to me. I DO work outside of the home and I've YET to find any good structure in MINE lol.
