Half-way through June already!? 2021 is truly flying by. I can’t believe the Summer Solstice is on Sunday and Midsummer is next Thursday. My birthday is two weeks from Sunday.
I’ve been busy in the evenings working on scrapbook pages for Happiness Box Project 2020. Since I have 365 notes and a lot of photos, I can’t go all out with fancy decorating. That would take up too much room and I want to keep the Happiness Box Project in one scrapbook binder. HOWEVER, I will scrapbook special moments such as travels. I’ve been working on Belmar/Asbury Park’s pages this week. I’m done and I already finished half of August.
I’m thankful for the kind comments on Scrapbook.com, Facebook, and Reddit. Some of my layouts received awards. I’m grateful for the experiences and how they turned out. I also loved using lyrics to different songs for these layouts.
I also finished a special layout for Memorial Day 2020:
This weekend I’m going to create a special layout for Atlantic City as well. Atlantic City from 30 August 2020.
I’m thankful for Jody on Writing.com for spearheading an activity yesterday. She wanted people to send community merit badges to the members that judged the Quill awards this year. I was one of the judges. Last night when I got home from the library, I had 16 e-mails waiting for me. 16 different merit badges and words of kindness thanking me for all that I do around the site. I woke up to 6 e-mails this morning, same thing, and I received 8 more through the day. 30 new MBs! I’m grateful for my friends and the Writing.com community in general.
I’m thankful for the library. Next weekend they are having a Pride story time for children ages 8-12. I asked the library director if I could go, if I should sign up, and she said to just come. She knows how much I like participating in Pride events, so I’m thankful I was welcomed. The story time will be taking place outside. I’m thankful for the library in general.
I’m also thankful for family and friends. What are you grateful for today?
