I am not a scrapbooker but I love the classes and materials that can be found at Big Picture Classes. I’ve found that there are tons of writing prompts to be gleaned from scrapbooking ideas and this site. One of my favorites so far is Quick and Creative Quizzes: 125 Journaling Questions to Ask and Answer by Wendy Smedley and Angie Lucas.
Here is a quiz that I thought would be fun to complete.
book I read: The Other Typist by Suzanne Rindell. I wrote about this book yesterday and I still can’t stop thinking about it.
place I visited: Providence, RI. The girls and I traveled there last week to visit my mom.
TV show I watched: Homeland. I am so far behind the times on this one. I am still watching the first season but after hearing so much about it, I finally decided to take the plunge. Let’s just say it is taking all the strength I have not to spend entire days on the couch watching it.
meal I prepared: I just finished making home-made chicken soup for the first time ever. We had roast chicken this weekend and I made broth from the carcass. Tonight I added chicken, veggies and noodles and it was awfully tasty, if I do say so myself.
person I called: My friend Melissa. I had a hard time understanding exactly what Katherine was supposed to be doing on her homework and I had a feeling that Melissa’s son would know exactly what to do. I was right.
person on my camera: Katherine. It’s hard to tell in the picture above but she stood by the front door this morning watching the first snow flakes of winter fall.
thing I Googled: Number of people who died in the Haitian earthquake. Sadly, I wanted to know how it compared to the typhoon in the Philipines. Answer is that they are both pretty horrible.
