After a rather restless night, I managed to sneak past the 7 am alarm. I woke just after 8 am and spent a few minutes with hubby before he raced off to work. Then, I sat and sat some more. By 10 am I zombie shuffled back to bed and made my way to dreamland.
When second morning came around (mid afternoon), the day had heated up. The unusual warmth wasn’t very motivating (or I was really stretching to find an excuse not to do the day), so I continued my day of doing nothing.
By late afternoon I was determined to at least get some art supply shopping done. I started on some arts and craft websites, ventured past some clothing stores and ended up in the deep and dark depths of Ikea. My shopping trip had been unsuccessful.
I realised I wasn’t even sure what I should be shopping for when it comes to watercolour. Do I want paint or pencils or both? What’s a good brand for a beginner? What’s the best paper? I visited a few blogs of watercolour artists that I like but I still feel pretty unsure of what I should be looking for.
I then spent a couple of hours catching up with a friend this evening. That was the laugh-light of my day. This friend has some crazy and colourful stories. He has been through some pretty tough stuff and always strives to be a better person. I find it very inspirational.
My day seems like a bit of a waste. I didn’t art. I didn’t French. I didn’t workout. I am finishing the day with a smile though, so it can’t be all bad.
I hope your day has been filled with interesting conversations with unique people.
