Day 205

I had a pretty terrible sleep but during the terrible moments, I knew, I was loved. You know you’ve found the right person when they’ll get up in the middle of the night to be with you when you don’t feel well. Wifey stayed up with me and settled me back to bed at 4 am.

When morning finally rolled around I reluctantly crawled out of bed. It was about 8 am. I knew the day was going to be hot so I started working on things pretty quickly. Once hubby had jet off to work, I did my French lesson. I’m sure I’ll be through this new topic within a day or two.

I then worked on the Doodlewash – October 2019 prompt; 14. Forest. The first thing I thought of was mushrooms, and as I’d tried once before with just lead pencil, I thought this could be a fun attempt. I chose a very simple brown mushroom reference.

Today has been our first taste of summer, it got to 34 degrees (93.2 fahrenheit) and it made it hard to focus on art. I did the Inktober 2019 prompt; 20. Tread. I found a great reference photo of a snow vehicle.

I also did the Inktober prompt; 21. Treasure. My first thought when I read this prompt was a memory from my childhood.

I loved playing with LEGO when I was little and I had a pirate set with treasure. There was a shark from another set that would often swim around the treasure island and try to steal the gold coins. One day, the shark did. I stuffed four coins into its mouth and that’s where they remained. They were the perfect size to get perfectly stuck. I had to try drawing that LEGO set.

I finished the day with a nap in front of the air cooler. I’m not sure how I’ll stay focused through summer. At least I have a little time to work it out.

I hope your day has been filled with brightness, goodness and something you treasure.

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. It’s been a pretty humid heat so far. The last few summers have been very humid, almost tropical weather, even though it’s not supposed to be tropical here. xD Hope you’re having a top weekend!!

      1. No- I guess it’s an unofficial term for when the temperatures drop below 30 Fahrenheit and everything above ground freezes through- It marks the end of the gardening season.
