Day 226

I woke just after hubby and very seriously considered going back to sleep. I brushed that thought aside and got up. Today was going to be a long day. Hubby had to work late and wasn’t due home until after 8 pm. I hate being alone for so long. I mean, I enjoy my own company but I haven’t felt safe on my own for a very long time.

A few years ago, when we were living in Melbourne, someone tried to break into the house about 3 pm, while I was there alone. That day, hubby had to work back. If he finished when he should have, he would have been home and I wouldn’t have had to go through that experience. I don’t like being alone.

When hubby raced off to work, I got straight to my workout. My arms, in particular, have really been feeling the workout this week. That didn’t stop me from pushing hard. It was another fantastic workout but after a hot day, my arms feel like jelly now.

I got in some French practice before deciding what art I should try. I haven’t been very watercolour inspired the last few days. That’s okay. There are lots of things I want to learn to do. I got out my sketch pencils and tried my version of ‘woman’s face’ by Johan De Jager found on Unsplash. It took five hours. This is the first face that I’ve finished and I learned a lot while doing it.

By about 4 pm the house was really hot and I was determined to avoid it by taking a nap in front of the fan. I can deal with heat so much better when I’m sleeping. I swear I was a penguin in a past life.

I hope your day has been filled with sunshine, happiness and laughter.

      1. That is the name my giant new French to English dictionary gave me- translator also came up with pingouin (or something close to that). Yes I highly recommend the Larousse Concise French (to English) dictionary- it has a whole dictionary in both languages- plus a grammar section for each and a long list of verb tables en Francais.

      2. I think the Larousse dictionary was only $10 or so (used) on Amazon – I think we got it through better world books. A worthy investment Je crois 😊
