Day 246

Everyone woke up before the alarm today. I dragged my heels. Hubby liked that he had a little extra time (probably not enough to make it a habit). Homer dog liked that he could get back to playing with his new toy. I sipped coffee and stared at my computer, hoping art-spiration would come to me quickly today.

Once hubby buzzed off to work, I got into a workout. The morning was hot, my muscles were already tired and I did it faster than normal. I pushed so hard I shaved about 8 minutes off. My body may disown me by the end of the week but I’m proud of my efforts.

Next it was time for a mouthful of French. “Salut! Comment ca va?” I tried to be a little more focused and it was more enjoyable. Still having a few issues here and there but that’s what practice is for.

I knew the afternoon was going to be hot, so I tried to get art done early. I wasn’t overly inspired but went to LaLunatique‘s stock photos to do some more human form sketching practice.  The ones I chose were rather ‘fairy’ like, so I turned them into faeries. They aren’t share worthy. That lead me to drawing a fairy house.

By the late afternoon it was too hot to even be awake, so I retreated to the bedroom for a nap in front of the air cooler.

I’ve been struggling lately but I can’t talk about it. I feel like there really isn’t any point talking about it. Most of my feels are stupid. I feel… pointless.

I hope your day has been filled with smiles, laughter, hugs and friendship.

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. I can sympathize- esp late summer- there’s this kind of melancholy about it. But I’m having a much more difficult time with this whole getting dark at 5 in the afternoon thing- I like the cooler weather but the darkness is screwing with my internal clock. I could never live in the Arctic.
