Day 261

I haven’t been sleeping well. It took me forever to fall asleep and then I woke around 5 am. I was determined to get back to sleep and laid there for what felt like an hour before dozing off again. Then I woke just after 7 am. Needless to say, I spent the day tired.

Hubby had to leave for work early and that meant I got to working out early. It felt good while I was doing it but it made me feel pretty worn out.

Then I went searching for art-spiration. Where, oh where, is my art-spiration? I thought that I would find working out the hardest thing to do in Summer, apparently it’s art. I watched countless ‘How to’ videos on Youtube, I had wifey try and nudge me into some sort of creativity (to which I dug in my ‘I CAN’T’ heels) and eventually I went to find the easiest drawing on Art for Kids Hub.

I chose ‘How to Draw a Christmas Cat Wearing a Sweater.’ I used Sharpies for the outline, scarf and sweater and a Tombow pen for the cat. I really enjoyed using the sharpies and then tried to find some other ‘Sharpie’ tutorials to follow. I didn’t really find anything I wanted to try.

So the end of the year is coming around pretty quick, as is Christmas, and I’ve decided to give myself something special this year…. I’m giving myself a break. I don’t mean I’m going to stop doing things, I’m just going to stop being so hard on myself. Whatever I get done IS enough. However I’m feeling IS okay.

I finished the day with a glorious nap. Just between you and me, it was seriously glorious! Oh, also some French. There was a mouthful of French. Oui!

If no one has told you today, you’re an inspirational person with a fantastic smile.
