More about these notebooks at the end of this post.
I'm starting a "soft quilt for hard times" - a concept I read on Barb Vedder's blog (Fun with Barb). Just something easy and comforting. This is turning out to be my year for log cabins.
Courthouse steps, really square-in-square.
My sister in law Dottie sent me some fabrics and I pulled things from my stash too:
The white is white-white but that's what I have and I'm using some in every block.
So I'm just piecing along, a few a day, meditative and easy. Listening to Spotify, watching Netflix, and listening to books on Audible.
From my safe and cozy apartment in Tokyo, so far away from the chaos in the U.S. but it's always on my mind.
The times keep getting tougher.... especially for some folks. I am currently listening to "How to be an Anti-Racist" by Ibram X. Kendi on Audible.
A couple weeks ago I listened to Jacqueline Woodson's beautiful memoir in poem form, read by the author, and I can still hear her voice in my mind :
I think it's a time for listening and learning. White Fragility by Robin DiAngelo is next on my list.
This is purely a "process" notebook, bullet journal style. When I start a new notebook, I number all the pages (on front side only, making for a two-page spread per page number) and leave two pages for an index up front.
The good the bad and the ugly.
I usually make a fresh page at the start of the month, listing all my projects. But I haven't done that since February... which melded into March.... mmmmm....
In true bullet journal form, everything is chronological. I just indicate where an idea or project picks up again, like this with the page numbers:
Other notebooks: For my regular bullet journals (calendar, to dos, lists, notes of all kinds, an occasional "tracker" for something) I have used Moleskine, and currently I use Leuchtturm1917 notebooks. They are fantastic - I love them. They hold up well, have a good pocket in the back, and like the Rollbahn, an elastic strap.
And, and we haven't even talked about PENS! ha ha).
