Autumn Is In The Air

Photo by Marilyn Collins
Happy first day of October! I love this month with all it's glorious colors bursting forth. It's also the month my daughter was born and my mother too. What could be better than that? We went up to the cottage this weekend for some R & R and nature's colors were starting to show. Inspiration was everywhere with pumpkins, gourds, apples, and leaves of every shade of red, yellow, orange, and brown. Even the sunset over the harbor was a colorful display.

I put together the backgrounds for Days 15 and 16 of my 21 Day Challenge journal before we left on our trip. That way I could quickly plug in the quote and journaling. I sometimes had trouble keeping up in previous 21 Day challenges because of interruptions to my regular routine. As a result, I would get behind and become overwhelmed trying to play catch up. Working in the journal became a drag after that. So to avoid that problem this time, I tried to plan ahead for these types of bumps in the road. There wasn't a quote posted from Rhonna when I completed this page, so I just did my journal without it on Day 16, which is another trick of mine to keep me on track. I always print and cut out Rhonna's daily quotes and paste them to the facing page anyway, so when she did post it, I added it to the journal then.
Note: My 300th blog post is coming up this week, so be sure to check back for the giveaway I have planned!
