It was a slow morning. I spent too long sipping coffee and browsing info about the next season of Masterchef. The next thing I know, hubby was off to work and I had to workout.
It was a great workout. I was listening to music at the time and kept forgetting what rep I was up to. So I worked out more than I should have but still finished under 30 minutes. I’m still feeling it in my muscles and I like it.
I have really been enjoying singing this week so I did a little of that. I recorded a couple of songs and actually saved them because they weren’t terrible. I wish I could record something I’d like to share. I’m just so crazy critical of how I sound.
Next I drew a quick cacti sketch for painting. I liked a lot of the elements from my cacti work last week and took inspiration from my painting and drawing to make a new art work. I didn’t get round to painting though. I felt conflicted because I want to paint cacti BUT I also wanted to do another French painting before the Tour de France ends. I browsed photos from Paris, then decided to do my French lessons instead.
I had so much fun with French today. The words flowed. I did 30 minutes. The extra practice must be helping. I’ll keep it up.
Then an unexpected message popped up from a friend and after feeling like I had overshared with them through the week, I was happy to know they wanted to talk again. We got deep. I haven’t felt this comfortable talking to someone in a very long time. I’m enjoying having someone I can share with.
By the afternoon I was ready for a nap. Before I did, I decided to do a little writing and added more to my story. The words flowed. It’s been a very free flowing sort of day for words.
Then I indulged in my third nap for the week. I’m really enjoying getting a little extra sleep and it hasn’t been affecting my sleep at night, so it really is extra.
When I woke, I finally got round to today’s drawing topic; a line drawing. So the first thing I thought of was drawing a lion line drawing. It was too much fun to say. I found a great reference picture and got this drawing done in about 20 minutes.
I’m hoping that I can wake up early tomorrow and get started on the creative straight away. I would like to get French and drawing out of the way before hubby goes to work, then a little early painting. Who wants to bet I end up being social instead?
I hope you’re having a week full of good memories and delicious food.
