Day 135

The morning seems like a blur now. I think I woke before hubby and stared vacantly until a hot cup of coffee magically appeared in my hands. It was most likely hubby who made it. That is questionable though. Every day I play a fascinating game of ‘Husband or Ghost’. Every time he goes to work, I walk into the kitchen to see a whole bunch of kitchen cupboards left open. Maybe the ghost made my coffee.

The coffee was the fuel I needed to power through 200 xp in French. There are still a couple of words that I forget but mostly it was a good practice.

Hubby left for work and I got to working out. It wasn’t my best work. My body has been particularly achy the last few days. I’m still sure it’s the workout and not stress related. I’m not feeling stressed. It’s getting me down though. Despite that, I finished my workout in under 30 minutes.

Next it was time to find a new drawing challenge. I wanted to join a current one and have decided to be inspired by Doodlewash – August 2019 prompts. Because I’m starting half way through, I will be doubling up on prompts so I can still finish by the end of the month.

The prompts I used today are; 1. Travel Painting Kit and 16. Beach. I drew a girl at the beach with her painting kit. It’s a bit rough around the edges.

All challenge drawings can be found here…

It was another day where I tapped out in the afternoon and took a very long and very glorious nap. I saw some cool info on ‘napping‘ on Pinterest. It’s good for my health, so why not enjoy it? My naps are too long but I always take one at the right time.

I hope your day has been filled with trying new things, big sunshine-y smiles and a relaxing view that could refresh your soul.

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.

  1. Hi Tilly and many thanks for dropping by my site and having a look around, much appreciated. Hat’s off to you for your site, your blogging output is prolific and your list of aspirations for before you’re forty is overwhelming – Even though I sailed past that milestone well over a decade ago I felt quite exhausted just imagining how much effort must go into such a constant stream of posts and striving to achieve your goals! Good luck with it all and please don’t give yourself a hard time for anything not done before 40! (I’m still working my way through my own list and reckon I achieved more of significance after I was 40 than I managed in the previous 20 years!)

    1. Thanks so much for your heartfelt comment, John. I started the blog as a way of making myself accountable while on my life changing journey. I figured if I had to write a post at the end of each day, I’d want to fill that day with things to be proud of. Some days it works, other days it barely gets me over the line.

      I know the journey won’t end when I hit 40, I just hope that by then I have set up a great framework for a wonderful life. I’ll keep plodding along and mark as many things off the list as I can.

      Thanks again for the words of encouragement. I hope you’re having a fantastic week filled with creativity and smiles. =)

      1. Hi Tilly and thanks for this, I think it sounds like a great plan (I know that me committing to post weekly has helped me establish a framework for painting – which I love – almost every week) so I know it can work!


    1. While there have been peculiar things happening in this house for over 40 years (my parents told me some chilling stories from when they first moved in), I think I can blame hubby for the open cupboards. xD

      Do you have any ghostly tales? Always great to see you stop by my blog. Thanks. Hope your week has been fantastic. ^^
