Day 223

I woke up before 6 am and decided to stay up and enjoy whatever coolness the morning would provide. We had a forecast for 35 degrees (95 Fahrenheit) and I wasn’t looking forward to a day of productivity. I spent some time playing WoW until hubby left for work.

Once hubby had fluttered off to work, I worked out. I didn’t want to but I know I had to return to being disciplined. It felt good while I was doing it. Now stuff hurts and it’s hot. Yuck

The morning was starting to heat up and I quickly got to art. I found a colourful houses by water photo for inspiration. I tried but I really don’t like this one. There are some mistakes which I didn’t notice until after it was done. The colours don’t pop as much and… the ink. Hmph to the ink.

By the time I’d finished working on it, the day was hot and I was emotional. Let’s just pretend that I was emotional because it was hot.

I did a really quick French practice and headed to bed around 3 pm to try and avoid the hottest part of the day in front of the fan. I am not sure I slept but I am sure that it really did get hotter.

It’s Happy List time of the week again. I sure hope that if I get this stuff done, that I will feel happier with myself.

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. Have you all had wildfire issues? The news reports I read this morning from down under sounded very dire 😳 incidentally it’s actually snowing a little bit here . Stay cool!

      1. Sometimes- usually it doesn’t stick- we just get heavy wet flurries or an inch or 2 that melts the next day. Sometimes though we get a biggun that dumps a foot or more- we had a blizzard back in 2014 (?) that dropped nearly 3’ 😳 that was not fun- we ran out of places to dump the snow. It has snowed in October and April and every month in between.

  2. Yes, the colors didn’t pop out well. 😁 But at least you learn something something from that! 😎

    And, just in case you feel hurt or sad, let me say, ” Don’t worry! Everything’s gonna be ok! ” 😊😊

    1. That’s very true. As long as I learn something from my practice, then it’s been helpful. Thanks for the words of encouragement. xD

      I hope you’re having a magical weekend. ^^
