New Season...new journal

The other night it was so cold, I had to put another blanket on my bed...Yeah! Autumn is in the air and I follow my own tradition. A new season means a new journal. A new journal always feels like a clean slate to me. Writers block disappears, idea's sprout in my brain and poetry is lovely again. Summer slips away, along with cold drinks and strappy tops and in comes hot tea & cocoa, sweaters and knitted scarves. I snuggle down on my big couch and with brightly colored pens of every color, ceremoniously open up my new journal and smell it...then I begin. My husband loves this time of year also because...

heehee...that's too funny.

i love new journals too but i actually struggle with that first entry. that first blank page is always a little intimidating to me.

i've never thought about a new journal for each season--i like that idea...

I love that journal! And there is nothing better than a bunch of colored pens to play with.

Now that my house is completely empty of children maybe I should go buy a journal--that would be very therapuetic I think.

P/S Thanks for all of your kind words you give to me on my blog. It means so much!

Love ya much!

Ooh, I LOVE a new journal! And I LOVE polka-dots, so that new polka-dotted journal of yours is from heaven. I hope it will be a good one for you! And so true about writing vs. shoes. But I love them both. And... it's almost... BOOT SEASON!!
