My day started as hubby’s alarm went off. I was tempted to turn over and go back to sleep but I made a commitment to myself to get more done this week. I threw the covers off, dived into a cup of coffee and started my French lesson.
With the optimism of a new day, I started a new group of French words, that turned my little French world upside down. This group of lessons has introduced the word ‘nous’, which means we. Whenever you use that word, the words that follow seem to change from the ones you would use with ‘I’, ‘You’, ‘He/She’. They’re similar but longer. I know the clue lies in those extra letters (which might be the same?) but it’s all confusing and Mr Duolingo isn’t really explaining it.
Okay, so French was a little disappointing. No worries! It was time to workout. A nice hard workout would shake off the disappointment. Wrong. My body decided it would have a fatigued sort of day. Within the first two sets of reps I knew this would be a long, hard event. By the last two sets, tears streamed down my cheeks as I wondered why it was like that. I’ve been doing this workout for over 3 months and today it felt like the first day. Mega UGH!
Then the sunshine broke through the clouds and I just forgot about the workout, grabbed my camera, my drawing of sunshine and went to hopefully capture something share worthy. Enjoy!
When I showed the drawing to wifey she said that she loved it so much, she would totally get it as a tattoo. I’m feeling pretty good about that. Not everyone may like the drawing but I know it’s made someone smile and that’s awesome.
Today’s drawing challenge topic; a saying. It took me a minute or two to work out what direction I wanted to go but then I saw a quote on Pinterest and thought it seemed fitting.
I also did some singing today but still nothing share worthy. There was also a little socialising too. Plus a nap. I stuffed as much into my day as I possibly could.
So today starts a new Happy List and I can hear you screaming… ‘But Tilly! Where is last weeks list? Did you even happy?’. Thanks for your concern. I did happy last week. We all did. I just never got round to updating it. The updates are updated now though and a new list begins.
This week I’ve got a couple of new goals. One is to research some coastal arts and crafts and decor ideas. I feel like it’s the theme I want for my house, seeing we’re about a 5 minute drive to the beach.
The other new goal is to comment more on blog posts I read. I come across a lot of posts that are highly comment worthy but sometimes my social anxiety creeps in and I can’t find the right words to say what I want to say. That’s just silly. I want to encourage people as much as people have been encouraging me.
I hope your day has been filled with creativity and sunshine. Good luck if you’re starting a new project this week.
