A unique journal

Recently my son and his wife took a trip to Europe for a few weeks. It was a surprise to me. So when he told me I bid him have a safe trip and a good time. I had just one request--bring me back a journal. So not knowing if he would fulfill that request, I really forgot about it. Well as their trip neared its end, he sent confirmation that he had indeed gotten me a gift. So I was beside myself trying to guess what it could be. I dreaded having to wait for him to mail it but I just thought I had no other choice. Then on Sunday about a week or so ago, I got a text message from Susan(DIL) that said, "sorry I missed you, I left your gift on the front porch" I could hardly contain myself. I rushed home to find that yes indeed there was my gift all wrapped up nice and pretty. I didn't tear into the wrapping because I wanted to save it. And when I opened it, I was floored. It was a lovely journal  they had gotten in Venice. It is beautiful . As Susan wrote on a little post it about how Venice is known for its blown glass, the journal is custom-made to represent that. See the pics below

A doodling we will go

Over on Instagram, I am participating  in a doodling challenge (#DND challenge) which is hosted by dawnnicole. Each day using a prompt, the participants are to doodle a word or image. It is so much fun! It helps me to hone some drawing and lettering skills. Here is a two-page sample of what I have done.

So if you like to doodle, this challenge maybe just for you.

Planning On It

After a week-long session of spiritual instruction, it was time to play catch-up. My planners and journals had been neglected for that long. So pile high on top of each other, I began to plan and journal my heart(and hand) away. Just a little idiomatic phrase there. But it came easy because I had so much to tell and to write. What a jam-packed week it was too. So now it's back to the business of spilling out my life onto white pieces of paper. Ha! I love it! I've also been hanging around the new app Periscope lately as well. I think I'm going to enjoy nesting there. You may even catch me trying to do a few.(psst I have already done a few) Anyway, stay tuned. My handle is Fayrai. 
Also today I stopped in The Little Bake Shoppe located in Wagener, SC. They have amazing sandwiches and pastry. I ordered a Reuben on seven grain bread.
Delicious!! This maybe my last time stopping in for awhile since school is about to begin. Totally not looking forward to that!! At any rate, other than being extremely HOT, the summer was not so bad. Now on to the rest of the year.😒
