I didn’t workout today but I’ll get back to the double tomorrow. My body has really enjoyed the rest but my mind is really looking forward to getting the job done.

While hubby was making lunch, I was trying to take some photos of a bee hoping between the dandelions on the back lawn. I was pleasantly surprised by some of the captures. It made me excited about all the fun things I’ll have to capture when we have a full herb and veggie garden.

The long awaited shadow shot for the Let’s Do 52 – 52 Week Photo Challenge. I looked up some ‘shadow’ photos on Google because a week of trying to be creative on my own had not worked as planned. I quickly found an image and went about recreating it. See the original  here . I used a simple egg ring and one of my favourite cookbooks; The Backyard Barbecue Cookbook. Published by Murdoch Books. All challenge photos can be found on Three Peas, One Pod.

Hubby is back to work tomorrow and I’ll get back to my arts and crafting this week. I’d also like to bake something. I’ve never really been into baking but I’ve been finding so many yummy things, it’s time to learn a new skill.

Here’s Day 14 of the writing challenge. If you’d like to see the full challenge details, click here. All 30 days will be posted here.

Day 14: Post your favourite movies that you never get tired of watching. 

  1. Finding Nemo. It’s just adorable and not only do I love watching it, I used to fall asleep to it almost every night. Once it would finish playing, there’d be the sounds of bubbles on the DVD menu. Very relaxing.
  2. I Love You, Man. The main character, played by Paul Rudd, is so socially awkward. I can relate to it. Makes me laugh every time.
  3. Deadpool 1 & 2. It’s Deadpool. I really don’t need to explain this one.
  4. Warcraft. It’s my secret love. I don’t even know how many times I’ve watched it. I’ve literally had it on repeat for hours though, while playing WoW.
  5. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2. Baby Groot makes this movie sublime. The opening sequence has got to be one of the most amazing movie openings…ever! Check it out here.

Day 34

Today has been a productive day. Hubby and I started the day with meditation. Our (10 year old) puppy, Homer, was playful and made it hard to focus but we did it!

Then I doubled my workout. As I got through the first part, I questioned if I really did want to go on with more. I thought about doing it later in the day or just starting next week. I powered through and I sure am feeling it. I’m aching in place I’ve never ached. I know it’s a good kind of ache though. Of course I will workout tomorrow but at this point, the idea is unpleasant at best.

After that I started on the Let’s do 52 – 52 Week Photography Project. I will be tracking the project on Three Peas, One Pod and on Flickr.

I did a few other creative type things like fixing the Three Peas blog and tried knitting again. Not making much progress, although if you need someone to cast on for you, I’m your gal! There was also some singing in there.

The rest of the day was housework and a nap. I was torn about napping. I know that I should be using the daylight hours for productive things but at the same time, I need to rest my body so I can keep up being productive. I’ll try and survive the whole day tomorrow, like an adult.

A garden project was started yesterday. We’re trying to grow celery from a cutting. Soon as it starts to sprout, I’ll start blogging about it. Let’s hope we see some shoots soon.

I said I’d start the 30 day writing challenge today, so here it is. If you’d like to see the full challenge details, click here. All 30 days will be posted here.
