Day 233

I woke up around 7 am and did the usual sitting, staring and coffee until hubby left for work. Normally I would jump into a workout but instead, I spent time with wifey. She wasn’t feeling the best and needed a distraction. I am a marvellous distraction.

A couple of hours later, I got to working out. I pushed really hard and made everything ache and it felt so good.

I wanted to do another charcoal portrait, but after four or five rough pencil sketches, I knew today was not the day for it. I found a cute photo of a baby elephant and attempted that instead. I chose this reference because you couldn’t see its feet, which meant I would need to try drawing grass.

After lunch I got to French. Every day I remember one or two more words but I’m having a lot of trouble with one of the practice exercises. Sometimes they will give you a number of words and you have to rearrange them into a sentence. I struggle. I mostly know what the words mean but I get confused easily when they’re not in the right order. Ugh.

By the late afternoon I wasn’t feeling great so I took a glorious nap. Never underestimate the power of a nap.

I hope your day has been everything you wanted and more. Smile, just because.

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.
