Day 105

Last night I went to bed early. It was nice getting the extra sleep and it may have helped my morning. I didn’t feel the overwhelming dread of morning sunlight like normal. I sipped coffee and prepared a weekly meal plan and shopping list. I tried to get more veggies into this weeks plan.

Once hubby had left for work, I worked out. I was determined to get through it faster than normal and ignore any fatigue my body was feeling. It worked and I was 4 minutes faster.

Next I moved on to gardening updates on Three Peas, One Pod. We’re still in the midst of winter, so we’re really only planting what needs to be planted at this point. Hubby had some frangipani cuttings that were looking ready for soil. We also replanted our surprise succulent and I have started documenting our mystery citrus. I’m excited about following the journey of our plants.

I created new pages for the Family of Frangipani, Succulents and Mystery Citrus.

After that I did 30 minutes of French. It was a very quick 30 minutes and I didn’t want to stop. Some of the new ‘family’ words are sticking, some make no sense at all.

Today’s drawing challenge topic; Clouds. While I enjoy painting them I did not want to draw them. Even though I’ve now done it, I still don’t want to do it. I used this photo for inspiration. I’m glad this challenge is now behind us and I say to you Mr Clouds, NO, just no!

Round two of the gloves (I am having the WORST luck with knitting gloves) was the next thing on the agenda. I decided to do a small test knit to see if I could figure out the colour transition and I learned two things. One, I still don’t know what I’m doing. Two, I didn’t have the focus to do the simplest of knits. I’ll try again in a couple of days.


30 Day Blog Challenge – All my answers will be posted here.

Day 25: Discuss someone who fascinates you and why?

I found it really difficult to pinpoint one person. I think humans in general are fascinating. There are so many creative, artistic, outgoing, intelligent, proud, damaged, deranged and dysfunctional people out there, each with a unique story. So I think that everyone is fascinating, I just haven’t heard their story.


I think tomorrow is a good day for painting. I’d love to paint more than once a week but it’s so very time consuming and I have lots of other learning on my plate. Oh well, as long as I’m improving, I’m improving.

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.
