Stop Growing!


This is one funky year. Usually about one month is cool and wet. Not this year. I'm just in a daze . . . month after month . . . seems like every night it's either raining or I'm mowing. I do love mowing, but enough is enough. As my meters indicate, this really isn't a big thing in the scheme of things, but it's still frustrating. It's cutting into other things to do. I had this sketch pretty much done before I thought of the Zombie angle. The last time I mowed (gee, it was two nights ago because it rained last night) I felt like I was in a daze and just going through the motions and I thought . . . Zombie!

I hate when things get in the way of journaling - but this makes for a great page!

Wonderful page.

What kind of journal do you use, John?

Great page... we've had the same problem this year... we thought it was because we put down a little fertilizer this Spring.

Love this John! I especially love the meters showing irritation vs. importance. Many years ago I read a story by Robert Fulghum on that very subject - problem vs. inconvenience - and I've always TRIED to remember that. It helps keep things in perspective. It's amazing how unimportant things can irritate, isn't it?

I love your page and the sense of humor that you have. It is frustrating when things come in the way of what you really 'want' to do...
