Day 176

I woke up just before 7 am and curled up on the sofa, almost ready to start my day. With the fuel of a yummy hot coffee, I started my French lessons. I am still working my way through the ‘restaurant’ level. Some more words are sticking, some are still a little confusing or I haven’t really got the spelling down yet.

I worked on the weekly food plan. There’s only one vegetarian meal this week. On Sunday we’re going to have an arts and craft afternoon, followed by a movie night, so it’s a much more casual Sunday dinner than normal. It’s also a great way to use the leftover vegetarian chilli from last week. I’m such a huge fan of leftovers and turning them into something new and wonderful.

Steak + Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms : Monday
Pepperoni and Potato Frittata : Tuesday
Japanese Chicken Noodle Stir-Fry : Wednesday
Shopping Day / Salmon & Cream Cheese Crostini : Thursday
Chicken Sang Choy Bow : Friday
Veggie Burger + Chips : Saturday
Hot Dogs /w Vegetarian Chilli Beans : Sunday

I had managed to get that all done before hubby left for work. Once he had disappeared into the mist, I got to working out. Wifey was still sleeping, so it was a solo mission today. I got through it in about 25 minutes, with every last part of me aching. I pushed hard.

Once that was done, I settled down to finish the shopping list and get started on art. I flicked to the World Movie channel on TV and found the Norwegian movie; ‘Ragnarok‘. While it was a little predictable, it was really well made. Two hours later and it was time to art.

I did the Doodlewash – September 2019 prompt; 21. Coins. While searching for some inspiration I saw a coin-operated laundry and decided to try it. I loved the colour palette. My watercolour pencil art is much bolder than the original.

I spent the afternoon doodling. Nothing in particular and nothing worth sharing, just some general practice with ink and lead. I topped the day off with guitar and singing. My finger tips got super sensitive pretty quickly. I’m trying to learn some new chords and cheat an F chord (no bar chords for this hand). We’ll see how that turns out.

I feel pretty content with the day. I kept busy and I have a smile on my face. I hope you’re having a fantastic week filled with creativity. Good luck if you’re learning something new. You’ll get it in no time.

  1. I dint know what everyone s beef with leftovers is- I think most dishes actually improve with s couple days in the fridge (esp curries). I usually spend an afternoon a week cooking up a few big pots of this or that and just feed off if that for the week. Then of course I only cook things I really like and could eat every day and never get tired of 🙂. Also the watercolor is looking good.

    1. That’s awesome. ^^ I agree that a lot of dishes improve over a few days. I love cooking a big pot of Italian spaghetti sauce. Can use it for so many things and it’s super cheap to make.

      It’s taking a bit to get used to the watercolour pencils. It’s a much longer process than I’m used to. This should help me develop some patience. xD

      I hope your week is going great! Happy art-ing.
