Focus on Life - Week 42

Another great prompt for this week: All in a Day
So here's my Friday...


Started really early at 2am (hence the fuzzy pic) - had to set the alarm to get our daughter to her school for 3am to catch a bus to Heathrow. She's on a school art trip for 6 days - first to Florence, then Venice *sigh*

Then back to bed for a few hours... I still got up to see the dawn and have my breakfast at 7am - being diabetic, I need to eat at regular times as much as possible.

Molly had to get in an the act, enjoying some early morning sun, sitting on my desk, till I shooed her off as most of the day was taken up making my Full Moon journal spread...

I wore the necklace you saw on my altar last week, and the bottom first 3 photos show its construction from random images at 11am to the finished spread at 3pm (I took lots of breaks, as I can't sit upright that long!)

You can read a more about the spread here :)

The fruit features as regular snacks throughout my day, and the hot chocolate and wee muffin were my naughty treat before I went to bed - early!

One very full Friday :)

Looking forward to seeing all your busy 24-hour images...

Well I cheated I took random shots of things all week long. All I have to do everyday is feed the fish wind the clocks and feed my husband supper everything else is free form... a somewhat random life. SOmetimes structure would be nice it's too easy to get sucked into the computer with not structure!

Hope your daughter has a wondeerful trip!

Your daughter is one lucky girl - especially to have a Mom who wakes at 2 AM to get her to the airport. Your kitty thinks she is your assistant, standing at the ready! Great job!

You should have packed yourself in your daughter's luggage! Enjoyed your collage.

Oh gosh that's an early start! I enjoyed seeing a day in your life. It's good you give yourself a treat at the end of our busy day! I hope your daughter enjoys her art trip! It sounds fabulous!

Your full moon journaling idea sounds interesting. How wonderful that your daughter gets to enjoy such a trip. I have hot chocolate most nights before bed also.

Oh wow - I'm jealous of your daughter being in Italy right now - that's one of my happy places! And your kitty - I just wanna hug all over him!! Great collage - busy day!

I LOVE your montage! Hope your daughter has a fantastic time in Italy, and brings you back a treat. Oh, PS, the picture of your cat is adorable...I miss mine so much.

I adored Florence but didn't get to see Venice. And the food - oh my.

I could have set up a cot in the Uffizi and never left. My degree is in art history and it was heavenly to finally get to see all of that heavenly art.

Great job with the collage, I wish I had thought of that. Busy early day indeed!
