A hobbit’s journal.

I have loved the thought of Middle Earth for a long time. I first read ‘The Lord of the Rings’ many years ago and have read everything else Tolkien since then. While this is a Hobbit’s Journal, feel free to include anything from Tolkien’s Middle Earth. I’d prefer to keep this mostly pencils and crayons or paint – in keeping with the look and feel of the journal. I love the pictures already present and would prefer those not be altered.
When journal is full, please return to Jenny, jfit.

72 things to do, with children, on a wet, windy day, Vol. 3

I wanted to create two very special journals in record time! These journals originally had entries made by invitation only, but now the second copy is available for all journallers to participate.
I made the journals for a Bookmooch journalling friend who suddenly and unexpectedly found herself caring for three grandchildren, domestic upheaval and no computer.
I wanted to think of some way of helping her if I could. I don’t know the ages of the children or whether they are f or m. Please assume they are in an environment that is very rural, without easy access to facilities and shops, and without cash resources. The journal ideas should be to use imagination and things found around one commonly.
So, instead of adding a new journal and sending it on its merry way to arrive in a few year’s time, I invited a small group of BM friends and BMJournalling friends to post or email ideas for the journal directly to me.

Journal 1: XXX (unknown number) things to do (cost-free or extremely cheaply) with children on a wet, windy day.

Journal 2: XXX (unknown number) things to do (cost-free or extremely cheaply) with children on a dry, sunny day.

As usual I created Journal 2 first, and now issuing Journal 1!
Contributions had to reach in a week from my request.
Lucky journallers who are not ‘virtually’ making entries, get two weeks to make entries!

So 72 (and counting) things to do (cost-free / extremely cheaply), with children, on a wet, windy day is born…

Pages can be added as needed, and I will issue it as Volume 1, 2 and 3 as appropriate. Please keep it circulating!

April – April with his shoures soote.

April is the fourth of a set of journals I am creating to celebrate the months of the year. These will be released month by month. They are for anything to do with the month: why you like or dislike it, what it means to you, poems, books, artwork, music, songs, photographs, stories:- whatever you are inspired to do.

Put your entry wherever seems appropriate.

Rules:

Don’t alter anyone else’s work.

Keep for no more than two weeks.

Relist promptly.

Be willing to send anywhere it is requested.

When the journal is complete please reserve it for me and I will mooch it back. If pages start to come loose or more are needed let me know please, and I can mooch it back and remake the book and repair or enlarge as necessary.

Please return the journal if you leave Bookmooch, if you go on vacation, and even if you just want to keep it! Ask me, I can make a copy when it is complete.

If you can’t complete in the given time, please contact me by email, I’ll mooch it back and return it to you point-free later at a time agreed.

I really enjoy a good laugh! What makes you laugh? Some good cartoons, a comedy movie, hanging out with friends or playing games? Share your favorite cartoon, stories or pictures with us fellow BookMoochers. Don’t alter the work of others, but feel free to add to the endpages. When full, please return to jfit, Jenny Stafford.

This journal seems to be stalled with its first moocher.

My favorite animal.

I’ve always loved bears. I love seeing them and enjoy collecting them. Do you have a favorite animal – real, toy, cartoon or pet? Tell us about your favorite – include pictures or make your own artwork. Don’t alter the work of others, but feel free to help decorate the end pages.

Friday.

This is the fifth in a set of journals celebrating the days of the week. In many languages the name means Frigg or Venus’ day.

In the Thai Solar Calendar Friday is regarded as an blue day. Since the Thai Solar Calendar attributes a colour to each day of the week I decided to use these colours in the journals to represent the days.

What does Friday mean to you? Does Friday have a particular significance, a poem it brings to mind, or something visual it brings to mind? Use the pages as you wish, but leave the work of others unaltered please.

If the journal is sent promptly wherever requested there should be no problem with completing an entry and re-listing within two weeks.

If you find you can not do so please re-list, email me and I will arrange to return it to you point-free at a later date.

If it needs repair or extra pages added, contact me and send it back to me. I can rebind and add or repair as necessary. When it returns to me I will scan and upload images to the journal site, for all to see.
