We're a week into January, so I'm going to check with you first before I say it. Christmas. May I use it one more time? Because here we are experiencing what The (Not So) Small One has called "The Christmas When Nobody Left".
You already know about the student who stayed here for New Year: I made a diary layout about it last week. This week? Uncle Dave didn't go home. I've been so tempted to save the details for our new trick Memorandum Monday, I won't even try to deny it; because dealing with a lost passport definitely counts as something new I've done. But given that it was lost on Monday and the replacement arrived yesterday, I can hardly honestly hold it over to next week.
On the plus side, if Uncle Dave is here, it's more than likely that I'll learn a different something new at the weekend. he might have a good idea for an outing, or maybe two, we could fit in before he leaves next Thursday. That would be - as he was quick to point out - ten days more Dave Time than we had originally been expecting. We aren't complaining! Even if it means cutting down on scrapbooking time so I can catch up on his chat.
I do have a couple of pages I haven't posted before, though, so I have something for today. The first:
is the second of the hidden journaling pages I made for the Gossamer Blue blog last month. It records my feelings on the differences between the photos I see in my mind, and the ones I see on my camera. I know what I want to capture; but sometimes my imagination far outweighs my technical ability.
And the second I made this week with my January kit.

The photo is a bit of a joke. You could call it creative illustration.
Enjoy your weekend and don't forget to think about learning something new for Monday!
