Day 384 – 21 April 2020
As usual when I make grand plans for my week, life throws obstacles in my way that sometimes I find hard to overcome. This week was no different, although this emotional hurdle was most unexpected.
Someone I thought was a friend, isn’t. I still can’t really process what’s happened and I am desperately trying not to blame myself. The real problem is that when I am hurt by someone, I want to detach myself from everything that reminds me of them. In this case it means my computer. UGH! The computer I need to blog, art and knit! I have to follow those knitting recipes very closely.
Basically, I spent the day in bed crying and when I wasn’t sobbing wildly and wondering why no one will be my friend for longer than a few months, wifey read to me. She’s my hero. Years ago wifey would often read to me until I fell asleep. I find it very comforting and I love listening to her voice. I’m glad we have started this habit up again. I just wish we had of started this under better circumstances.
Not much more to the day, sadly.
Day 385 – 22 April 2020
Wifey read to me until I fell asleep last night, that was very comforting. I had pretty okay dreams too (first time in weeks). I woke up around 8 am and I felt good-ish-esque. Homer dog was overjoyed that I was finally awake and gave me many, many morning kisses and snuggles.
I wasn’t overly keen on starting the day and opted for some sleepy Youtube watching. Some of my fave channels had posted over night, so I was content.
Around 11 am I got out of bed for a reason I can no longer remember and sat down at my computer. That was a bit hard. I really had an urge to sing though, so I poured out my emotions into a handful of songs.
I figured while I was up I should probably get a bunch of Puddle cells drawn and write down what each day would be, so I can achieve my goal of more than 7 Puddles finished this week. I have about 14 cells drawn up, I think. I’m secretly hoping I can get them all drawn in pencil by the end of the day. I’ll let you know how that turns out tomorrow.
Before heading back to bed for Puddles drawing, I practised French and Norwegian. I keep forgetting that I started a new topic in French and always jump straight into a timed practice run. I’m not familiar enough with the new words to be doing a timed practice. It takes too long to work out what the words are. Some I hadn’t even learned yet. I only made that mistake once and then continued my lesson on ‘City 2’ words. The only thing I can solidly remember is; La voiture est derriere le bus. I think I just really like the word ‘derriere’.
I also started a new topic in Norwegian. It will be days before I remember more than; mannen.
In today’s Adventures of Arthur Puddles we find him taking Douglas dog on a ride around the backyard in a little red wagon for National Little Red Wagon Day. Arthur was having so much fun he didn’t notice the UFO hovering off in the distance.
I spent about 20 minutes listening to this very short meditation guide but it was powerful and it made me feel better. If you are offended by swear words, I do not recommend this meditation.
I hope that your day has been filled with relaxing, creativity, productivity or anything that just made you feel good. Stay strong, stay safe and stay indoors. Please and thank you.
