Day 258

I woke up just after 6 am and figured I’d get up. The morning was a bit of a blur. I think I watched Youtube videos. Let’s just say I didn’t do a thing until hubby left for work. Then it was time to workout. I got straight to it and worked out hard. I was a little slower than normal but I am sure I worked muscles I didn’t even know existed. Ow!

Then it was time to start art-ing. I had sketched an eye a couple of days ago but finally got round to colouring it. I didn’t use a reference for the eye, I just wanted to see what I could come up with.

After I was done with the eye, I still wanted to try another Art for Kids Hub video. I chose How To Draw A Christmas Palm Tree. This felt much closer to a Christmas down under.

Then I started work on a watercolour sketch. I got about 75% of it done then I was all art-ed out. I’ll finish it sometime during the week.

I then worked on French. I didn’t start new words today but had a really great practice run. I really need to get back to doing French first thing in the morning. I seemed to pick up so much more and I think I even pay closer attention.

Duolingo emailed me an update of my French learning in 2019. I have used Duolingo for 166 days and have completed 1,499 lessons. I have spent over 100 hours learning 5,247 words.

I can’t believe I’ve learned that many words. When I think about the words I know I can barely get to 30. I’m thinking that might be what Duolingo thinks I should have learned. It’d be very interesting to see a list of those words. Either way, I have been pretty dedicated to this learning and I feel pretty proud of myself.

I finished the day catching up with a friend and some singing. Both were very enjoyable.

I hope your day has been filled with things that make you smile.
