The wrecking continues on week 6 of the Next Chapter Wreck This Journal adventure.  When I was at Trader Joe’s this morning, a woman came up to me and asked me if I was a life coach.  She had seen my coaching website the other night and also enjoyed looking at all the wreckage of the Next Chapter bloggers.  Very cool!

Here’s my chewed up page.  It did not taste good.  Yuck.

During the 4th of July holiday weekend, Brian and I took a lovely walk around Lake Temescal in Oakland.  I’m glad I brought my journal with me as the beautiful natural setting inspired some more wreckage.

I spotted a muddy patch on the path around the lake and recklessly rubbed my page with dirt.

Also on our walk, I noticed blackberries starting to spring up along the bank.  I almost fell into the lake trying to pick berries.  Not only did I mess this page, but I also messed up my leg with several pricks from the blackberry thorns!

I don’t drink coffee, so Brian graciously share the last few drops of his Blue Bottle coffee on our walk.

I had a lot of fun with the “sew this page.”  I even created a pocket that contains a secret message – shhhh!

And finally, here’s my “test supplies” page on week four of being my blotting paper at painting class.
