Day 62

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.

Here’s Day 29 of the writing challenge. If you’d like to see the full challenge details, click here. All 30 days will be posted here.

Day 29: What are your goals for the next 30 days.

More of everything that I have been doing.
1. Double daily workout
2. Paint
3. Knit from a pattern and finish it
4. Draw
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.

I'm on a life changing journey to 40. There will be ups, there will be downs. I'm like a roller coaster but with more agoraphobia.
