Day 103

I woke up around 7 am and staggered to the couch. Why must morning? Hubby was still asleep and I flicked on the TV and switched to the world movie channel, hoping for something interesting. There were adorable little French kids, so I figured that’d be okay to watch.

The movie that followed; The Beauty Inside. I’m not sure if it was the movie or I was just feeling sad but I cried through the whole thing. It was an amazing movie that is definitely worth the read. There really weren’t any more bad feels for the rest of the day, glad I can say that.

I finished my beanie today. I’m so proud. This is the biggest knitting pattern I’ve tried. Overall I felt pretty good about the knit. I was able to follow the pattern, although I did manage to use the wrong sized knitting needles. DERP! I didn’t use the suggested wool but I did end up with a cute pink beanie that I can wear.

Today’s drawing challenge topic; diamonds. I went for one glorious diamond with shadow. I was inspired by this photo. I’m trying not to obsess over the drawings and just get them done as quickly as possible. I want to learn to trust myself and what I can see.

Hubby and I did a little gardening but I’m feeling too lazy to go through the photos. I’ll put that on the to do list for tomorrow and whip up a post on our new plants.

I did my French practice and forgot lots of stuff. I’m not feeling confident about learning new words but I’ll give it a go anyway. I might need to practice a little longer each day.

Last week’s happy list made me happy. One thing I didn’t get done was to take a nap. I was feeling like I hadn’t done enough last week but knowing I didn’t get time to nap means I had kept myself busy, which makes me happy. A new happy list tomorrow and another week of achieving.

Happy Monday!

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.
