This and That Thursday

Thursday 1. August. from my Enders Island journal. And I wrote the journal entries out of order as I wasn't paying attention to my notes.


M stopped by to visit in the afternoon. She was in the first class I took at Enders. One of the friendships made that lasted beyond the class.


We had an awesome breakfast. Stuffed French toast stuffed with blueberries and cream cheese. Heaven.

In the afternoon there was supposed to be a regatta or parade of sail. We would be able to see it through the studio windows. Everyone was so busy trying to get the project so it would be finished by Friday, we forgot to look up and missed it! 


After an evening walk, I went to the common room in the dorm to fix a cup of tea. One of my classmates was sitting in the corner reading a book. I didn't see her. She said "Hi!" and I nearly jumped out of my skin. We chit chatted over tea until she had to make a phone call and I went to bed.

    1. The little Inks were picture tubes I made in PSP to use to cover names in the journal.

  7. I had a long day yesterday and missed this post. I've never tried stuffed French toast, how is it? Nice sketches and what a good way to remember your days on the island. Will you do another one in October? Hugs-Erika

    1. I didn't think I would like the stuff French toast because I'm not a huge fan of plain cream cheese. But the cream cheese stuffing was sweet from the blueberries. In a word Heaven!

      If the October workshop fills, I'll be there.
