Bits N Pieces

There have been so many surprises and discoveries I've had during my COVID cleaning spree. There have been paper manuscripts I had forgotten about and an unusual number of little notebooks, most of which I used on travel adventures to record the things we saw. I was better at the journaling some times better than others. 

One little notebook I found tucked way in the back of a shelf in a cupboard I was cleaning out in out den was a definite surprise. It was was in the back and I mean WAY BACK. These shelves were not as well thought out as they should have been when we had them built. I got the ladder and reached in, then sat down and leafed through it. It was full of little gems that I'd copied from somewhere along the journey. Here they are. Enjoy!
