TLP June Formula Challenge

J - Just Journaling. No photos. This is the perfect excuse to scrap that memory when the camera batteries were dead.
U - Under there. (hehe, did i just make you say underwear?) i want to see at least one of my two favorite things: either a background cutout or lots of layering!
N - Nine pieces of paper. Feel free to repeat, but nine total pieces!
E - Eight total elements. Again, feel free to repeat, but eight elements in total.

for today...

outside my window... 75F and sunny
i am thinking... about my Dad, Sunday is Father's Day, I sure miss him!
i am thankful for... a new printer/scanner
i am wearing... my jammies 'til I finish this post and then jump in the shower
i am going... to the Laurel Festival in Wellsboro, Pa today
i am currently reading... Country Baking: breads, muffins & more
i am hoping... that it doesn't take forever to find a parking spot today
on my mind... gas @ $3.69/gallon
pondering these words... "summertime and the living is easy"
from the kitchen... fresh blueberry muffins
around the house... the porch windows are down and screens are in all the doors & windows
one of my favorite things... the mountain laurel
i'm creating... the June blog header, even if it is already the middle of the month lol
a few plans for the week... laundry, and hope to shampoo the carpeting
from my lens:

while driving up the road, I spotted these wild turkeys all the way up the hill
and pulled over to see what the heck they were carrying on about

ah, it's Mating Season lol

my sister and BIL drove up from New Jersey to celebrate my Mom's birthday; Mom was exhausted from their visit, but enjoyed her cake and ice cream! although they were only here a few days, it sure was nice to see them again!
