Hubby and I had a terrible nights sleep. Around 3 am there was a huge thunder rumbling that made the windows shake and pulled me from a deep sleep. Then came the rain and more rain and then some more rain.
Normally I enjoy sleeping with the sound of trickling rain but this was a downpour and we have a few holes in the roof. If a downpour comes down in the wrong direction, our living room ceiling gets wet and drips through a hole that my dad must have drilled to release water. We were both worried that this extreme weather would bring down the ceiling.
Every time I dozed off, I quickly woke, praying that the rain would ease down. It finally did and I finally got back to sleep, poor hubby didn’t.
The morning felt extra hard and extra cold but nothing a workout and shower couldn’t fix. Even the workout felt a little harder than it has been. I almost gave up half way through but that’s just not who I am now. Go, go, go!
I finally got my paints out today and went about painting a flamingo. It was really dark in the living room, so I illuminated the table with a flashlight on my phone. I spent a little while drawing a rough picture, then started painting. I wasn’t entirely sure how to layer the colours but it’s pink and resembles a flamingo. I think that means I win. The only thing it was missing is some detailed feathers.
I also did 30 minutes of French. That’s now 7 days of learning French. It’s pretty exciting. I’ve been wanting to do this since I was a teenager. I had a little trouble remembering some of the greetings today but I think that’s just because I’m tired.
I didn’t get to knitting today but the weather has reminded me that I really should. My last knitting practice is sitting on the table under my wrists as I type, keeping them warm. I need to learn how to make gloves.
Day 29: What are your goals for the next 30 days.
More of everything that I have been doing.
1. Double daily workout
3. Knit from a pattern and finish it
5. Keep learning French
6. Add more to my short story
7. Create recipes for a food blog
8. Get more sleep
9. Don’t leave photo challenge pics to the last minute
10. Be more social online
I think 10 dedicated goals is enough. Of course that won’t stop me from achieving other things.
Good luck to all those starting a project this week. May the creative flow through you and create smiles in all you do.
