I had originally planned to enter #Areyoubookenough in Instagram with May’s theme being the alphabet.
My original idea was not only make it into a You Tube video, but to make an old journal, someone to carry who would travel wherever he or she went. It would be worn out and such. As for the alphabet, I would have quotes from famous people like Einstein, Henry Ford, and even Batman and the Joker. I wanted to have their portraits in the journal as well.
Except it didn’t turned out like that. The printer ran out of ink which took time to get a new cartilage and the drying time. You can see it easily on Albert Einstein’s picture of the problems I had with the printer.
I even posted on Facebook that if I had a nickel (remember Canada had abolish the penny.) every time I had to wait for drying time, I would be a rich woman.
My friend A suggest to start a piggy bank so I thought why not? I must be inhaling too much paint fumes or something.
Anyway, I was not happy with the results of the book and didn’t enter it.
I sort of like the binding with the beads, but next time, I would change several things. Like using canvas boards as cover and no coffee stain paper. I know that I must be the oddest person who does not like coffee. When I was staining the paper, my whole room reeked of coffee and add Frebreeze and scented candles, then smelled like vanilla-lavender coffee. That was nasty.
Let alone, the paper tore very easily. So I know of how to make a better one next time. It won’t be for awhile. But it also meant no video for my channel. I have a few ideas, don’t worry.
I would like to try the Instragram thing again, but I am not sure when. I know from October to the end of November is out because of the Bentley sales.
I also know two of the themes coming up are shadows and tickets. I can’t help thinking that old Beatles’ song, “Ticket to Ride.” At least, I don’t have to have 26 pages. I remember when I was a child, there was a song about the shadows. But dang it, I remember the melody and a few words, but that is it. I don’t know the title or who even sang it. I’m getting old.
My big hurdle at the moment is my knee and my balance.
My knee has been killing me for the past two weeks. All I did was one day; it wasn’t hurting so I thought I would clean.
Big mistake because even though I went up and down the stairs twice, my knee was screaming obscenities at me for the rest of the week.
Then I had to go on a few errands and get a mamma today which meant more screaming. Terrific. Even my balance was off.
I know, I know TPP&C. Time, Patience, Practise, and a little Chocolate.
