The design of today's journal page began with the to-do list, which is usually a great place to start. I love writing down my plans for the day or week ahead. Seeing each task, even the mundane ones, out there on paper somehow renders them real and manageable. And is there any greater thrill than crossing an item off a to-do list? I think not.
I'm noticing, though, that the summer sun can wreak havoc on even the most organized, prioritized to-do list. Lately, I've been known to put every detail of my day on that list and then completely ignore it. Sometimes, I write down tasks that are nearly, if not already, complete just so I can check them off and go out and play with my girls. And there are more than a few items that have been passed from list to list. Yep, I've been cheating on my own to-do lists. That's something I'll definitely have to work on. (I'll add that to the list.)
Today's page includes the usual, not entirely traditional to-do list . . .
and a few queries to get you thinking about random things . . .
The full page looks like this:
You'll find the black and white version here and its colourfully-bordered counterpart here. Wednesday is nearly over as I publish this post, so I'll jump ahead a few hours and say, Happy Thursday friends! If you have a moment and would like to share, tell me, what's on your to-do list today?
Edited to add: If you'd like to add a splash of colour of your own, download the page with a colour-free border here.
