Close Call

For ten chilling minutes, I thought I had left my small journal for the 75-day Challenge (a pen drawing a day) at work (meaning it would be lost forever). Wild thoughts raced through my mind, like "I won't be able to continue the Challenge...," despair. 

Then I checked my bag again and found it at the bottom (yeah, it's a big bag, has to be to carry art supplies and stitching). This made me realise how attached I have grown to this practice of diary entry, quote, sketch, take-a-line-for-a-walk, just using the humble ballpoint pen in black, green, blue or red. 

Fortunately, there are about 300 pages (6"x4") and I do both sides. I'm good for several long as I don't lose it. Name & phone number are now on the first page.

Ahhhh glad you found it .... (lucky we have big bags and mindlessly put things where they beong ;-) !)

Would have been BAD though if you'd lost it, its a lovely diary !

(don't know if I would have the stamina to keep that up ..... )
