Yesterday I had the most amazing experience - introducing a group of girls in Montreal to journaling. It was a joy and an honour and absolutely fascinating. I hope the magical seeds of journaling have been planted.
Another day of unpacking. I tackled the rest of the books, which included school texts (eep) and cooking, plus oodles of journals and sketchbooks. I think I left all the challenging book boxes until the end, some weren't too bad but others I felt like I had no idea what to do with. I was too tired to actually feel like I was making good decisions so I just got stuff out of boxes. I plan to do some sorting and shelving on the weekend, hopefully I will have a better picture of what I want to do with everything then.
I love working with clay but to wedge/knead this amount took me five times before there weren't any air bubbles. I was sweating into my eyes, had to get help from the teacher... Ugh. Don't think I'll be making another lantern any time soon. That just about killed my shoulders.
