I woke just before 6.30 am and decided to get up. My goal was to paint and I knew there’d be a number of things I’d need to get out of the way first.
I sat down at the computer, rubbed my eyes and read the BEST message ever…. wifey is coming home. HUZZAH!!! ^_^ There is only 34 days until she will be here. It’s going to be so much fun doing all my learning, plus arts and craft, with her. The happiness is real. I was even able to say; ‘Tu as un billet d’avion’ and ‘Tu vas a l’aeroport en voiture’. Pretty sure those are right.
Once my excitement calmed slightly, it was on to French lessons. I’m still learning the ‘family’ words. Every day more words seem to sink in. I did another 30 minutes today.
Then I flicked over to the world movies channel. A French movie, The Finishers, was just starting. It was an inspirational and heartfelt movie, which had hubby and I both in tears….and made hubby a little late for work.
Next it was onto my workout. My body has been feeling fatigued for over a week now. Some days are worse than others. Today I was really feeling the lack of energy in my muscles. I did my best and still got through the whole workout, even if there were many, many times when I wanted to stop.
Time was ticking away and it felt as if the painting dream was slipping through my fingers. Surely I could get the drawing for today done quickly and then I could finally paint. Today’s drawing challenge topic; funny creatures. Oh no! This is not something I’d be able to do quickly.
I Googled ‘funny creatures’ and found photos of animals making silly faces, animal morphs and things that might give me nightmares if I tried to draw them. Then I found a Pokemon picture that was titled ‘funny little creatures‘, so that’s the one I went with. It was a hard draw. I didn’t get the size right…on anything. I think it’s still readable as Pokemon.
It was now too late to start painting. So instead of feeling bad about not getting things done, I did a task off my Happy List. I napped. It’s nice to be able to treat myself to a nap instead of using it as a way to avoid depression. Tomorrow, I WILL paint. Fingers crossed.
Day 26: If you had 1 million dollars to spend, how would you spend it?
I’d take it to a casino and put it all on black!
Well, probably not. The only things I’m really interested in, that are big money items, would be to buy a house somewhere rural with room for veggie gardens, chickens and goats. I imagine that would take up a good portion of the money, getting that all set up. Goat pyjamas would have to be expensive.
Then a cruise. A world cruise or a European river cruise… or both.
Then with whatever is left over, I’d put it all on black.
It’s nice to have dreams and I love the fact my life dream is to have goats in pyjamas. What more could one want?
I hope you’re having a comfy pyjama kind of day.
