currently in love with:
♥ Bounty chocolate bars
♥ K & Company's Neopolitan collection of scrapbooking albums & papers
Heidi Swapp rub on alphabet letters, American Crafts ribbons, Making Memories acrylic paints, Urban Lily 12 x 12 papers

...actually, just keep me away from the scrapbooking products, okay? At least until payday ;)

I am craving pasta for dinner tonight, and Millie decided on Saturday night she was a vegetarian and ate 2 burritos without mince in them (this is after eating the first one with mince in it, so we're not entirely sure she understands the concept of being vegetarian). Nonetheless, Noel & I agreed we would support her if she continued in this way, even if it means cooking separate meals for her & Ben. 7 years old, going on 17 I think sometimes. I want to wrap her up in my arms and keep her safe forever.

I've been writing in my embodiment journal every day this year, even when I was sick. It's like a habit now, Noel even reminds me sometimes, makes sure I have written for the day. Yesterday was just 2 sentences, but it's probably more than I would have written previously. I have ideas for a new zine too, that I started writing today, in another notebook. My mind was strangely awake this weekend, even when I felt so sick.

&to do:
x. letters {Meg. Meghan. Russ. Kristy. some of you that I promised ages ago I would write to}
x. mix cds
x. get a scrapbooking album
x. post distro consideration copies of my zine (eek, been meaning to do that for weeks now)
x. catch up on my visual journalling
x. finish story for writing assignment, also assignment 3 which is still not yet done

I keep thinking about that return ticket I have to England, to be used by November.

i'm not going to lie, i've been awful about writing everyday. it's really really hard. but i have been journalling on paper for a LONG time now so i guess old habits are hard to break, eh?

i thought i wanted to be vegetarian when i was little...then i wanted a hamburger and it was all over. ;-)

i went through that, but my parents didn't support me like you & noel are.

& sometimes, two sentences are better than a whole page.

Wow what an amazing online craft store! And I completely understand your adoration for K & Company. Aren't their products beautiful? Do you have a QVC in Australia? I get quite a few of my crafting items from there at an amazing price. I'm not sure if the UK one ships there but it's worth a go. If you do come back in November, you must go the craft exhibition at the NEC in Birmingham - it's amazing

that's so awesome of you guys to support millie if she decides to become vegetarian. i finally got my parents to let me do it when i was 12.

make sure you do lots of research on how to create essential proteins by combining vegetarian foods (such as rice & beans--a classic). sure you know that already, though.

I was doing so well with my embodiment journal until this month, sigh. I think I may have missed as many days now as I've written :( I guess I anticipated it with Mike coming home, but I so need to focus on it!

I've been a vegetarian my whole life, but my parents made the decision for religious reasons. It's exciting if Millie is trying it on her own, that way the reason will always make sense to her and she'll know she has support for it!
