For Today… Daybook for May 18th

Outside my window: still chilly for May,and rainy.
I am hearing: rain, not much else.
I am wearing: my bumming-around-the-house jeans, and a tee shirt.
From the kitchen: maybe some coffee, I haven’t decided yet.
I am thankful for: people willing to help when you need it the most…you know who you are, and thank you 🙂
I am going: to have to figure out why I can’t get out of this rut I’m in.
Noticing that: that money may not buy happiness, but it sure is a great destresser.
I am reading: Welcome to the World Baby Girl by Fanny Flagg
From the learning rooms: my hubby make 100% on his test today. He’s doing so well.
On my mind: everything and nothing…ever feel like that? Sometimes, I think it’d be nice to just sit and have no thoughts or feelings at all. Just be numb.

Quote for Thought: Go to, they have wonderful quotes. “I feel like a defective model, like I came off the assembly line flat-out (screwed-up) and my parents should have taken me back for repairs before the warranty ran out.” Elizabeth Wurtzel

One of my favorite things:  sleeping late, snuggled in my blankets with my cat.
I’m creating: a whole lot of nothing. I feel stuck … It’s like my brain has shut down…
Around the house:  laundry and dishes to wash, towels to fold…I’m sure I’ve forgotten something…
A few plans for the week: catch up on the house work, finish up the book I am currently reading, and make myself get back to exercising regularly. just like last week, I have been trying to scrap and/or create, but I just can’t seem to get anything to work for me.
From my lens: the chilly sunset on Lake Erie a few days ago…

  1. Hi Melissa,I hope you are having a good day, I am praying for you that God will help you get out of the rut you are feeling like you are in, I love to scrapbook and I love cats too :)Have a blessed day!

  2. Fantastic photo! I understand being in a creative rut – I've been working on the same book for ummmm…14 yrs, uhhhh, no…15 yrs. Yep. That's a rut. I'm sure you'll work it out – as a matter of fact looking at water (lake, ocean, sea) always works to dust off a few creative cobwebs for me.

  3. I know the rut, girl! Don't try TOO hard to create. Start with something slow; no expectations; something simple. It will come back! I've been trying to get back into the swing of my paper scrappin'. It's tough! I sit and stare at it and expect this great page to come out of my brain! I pulled out my handy-dandy sketch magazines and ALMOST have a page done! Only took…2 days…. long days….
