Can you see my happy dance?

I will spare you the picture. This weekend I get to take a journaling class with Judy Wise at Innerstandings in Portland. I am very excited to spend the day journaling and learning some techniques from Judy. My daughter has a basketball game on Saturday...so I will be driving up very early on Sunday morning to attend.

I have a few half started journals, but I never can seem to commit fully to the process. Perhaps this class will be the start of a new phase. I am not sure if it is the blank page or just that my thoughts always seem to be spinning around so fast in my mind that I can't really seem to get them down. Kind of like my blog...I have all these thoughts about what I would like to say, but I just don't always get them down in the few minutes I have.

So I am going to give it a go this weekend. I know it will be a fun class and a happy distraction from my daunting "to do" list.

So, are you staying overnight or driving back Sunday? It is cold here right now and you may need a cup of Quan Yin pearls' tea and/or a comfy chair where to sit for a while, hint, hint...there is also the guest bedroom and this coming weekend is free! more hints, hints. Have a safe trip down and let me know if any of the above sounds enticing,

I wanted to go too, but didn't want to make the drive by myself.

It will be a great class!

Thanks for the encouragement, and the suggestion about the fiber blanket. I'm going to try that next.
