I woke up late again today. It was after 9 am when I finally rolled out of bed and I just wasn’t feeling the day again. I’m depressed. Yuck. I know I have lots of reasons to be happy and I’m thankful for every single one of them. I’m thankful that I have people that care about me. I am just struggling to shake off the bad feels.
The first thing I attempted today was the Inktober 2019 prompt; 8. Frail. Wifey suggested doing a frail bird and when I Googled it I found a wonderful quote from Victor Hugo. I paired that with a small grey bird. I really like how the bird turned out. I’m not so happy with my handwriting.
I worked on the next prompt for Inktober and Doodlewash but couldn’t bring myself to finish either of them. I spent a few hours working on both the sketches. It should give me a good start to art-ing tomorrow.
In the hour before hubby got home, wifey made some buttermilk biscuits. They are very similar to a scone, so I put some butter and honey on mine.
I would have got a little more done but I spent the late afternoon chatting with a friend. He talked, I laughed and before I knew it 3 hours had flown by. Sometimes it feels strange that I could feel close to someone and consider them a friend even though we’ve never met. Of course, this is a situation I’m familiar with. I was with wifey for four years before we met for the first time.
Even though my heart is heavy, my mind is over flowing with all the good things I’m surrounded by and I know I’ll get through. In the wise words of Dory from Finding Nemo; Just keep swimming.
I hope your day has been filled with big smiles, good friends and a tasty treat.
