Day 313

Yesterday morning hubby got up in the roof to do what he could for the leaks. We had a rain heavy day forecast. It was a success. He plugged the holes enough, placed some buckets strategically and we didn’t see a drip or wet patch on the ceiling all day. It was lucky, we ended up getting 100 mm of rain.

During the night the weather didn’t ease up, it got worse. In some parts of New South Wales it was the worst storms they’ve had in 30 years. There were very strong winds and another 70 mm of rain for us. Luckily we had no flooding. We did lose one of the trees in the back yard though.

The frangipani plants survived the night okay, although some flowers did fall off.

We put the fallen flowers into a glass of water. It’s made the living room smell lovely.

It was a pretty humid day (thanks to all the rain) so I didn’t really get a lot done. I doodled and I Puddled.

My 10 minute doodle was inspired by the letter ‘E’. I had an idea for an Easter Egg. It didn’t really turn out how I thought it would.

In today’s Adventures of Arthur Puddles we find him singing in the….sun with his umbrella for National Umbrella Day. He’s enjoying being outside now the rain has passed.

Hubby is back to work tomorrow and I’m going to have an art and learning filled week. I was pretty happy with how many watercolour practices I did last week, so I’ll aim for more this week.

I hope your week is filled with creativity, productivity and all the things that make you smile. You should smile more, it looks good on you. Take care.

Day 291

Last night I fell asleep to GUIDED SLEEP MEDITATION for Healing again. I’m pretty sure I didn’t even make it half way through before falling asleep. Meditating before sleeping has been helping me to sleep better.

Today was a day of dungeons in WoW. It was missing something but it wasn’t a bad day.

We’ve been seeing a little rain over the last few days. The smell of smoke has finally disappeared. Today it has been raining very lightly for most of the day. I took a picture of one of the frangipani plants in the backyard. It’s so nice seeing the little rain droplets.

In today’s Adventures of Arthur Puddles we find him talking on his tin can phone which he made to celebrate Tin Can Day. He was chatting about the sailing while enjoying a big bucket of popcorn for National Popcorn Day.

I hope your day has been splashed with things that make you smile. Happy Weekend.

Day 126

I went to bed a little early but woke around 4.30 am. It took too long to fall asleep again and when 7 am came around it felt like I hadn’t slept. I got up and stared over a cup of coffee and then I stared over another cup of coffee. Eventually I pointed my stare at my computer and got to French practice.

French went pretty smoothly, except for one timed run where I only got four right before the timer ran out. I can only imagine I got distracted. I had a number of perfect timed runs and got to 200 xp points in about 30 minutes.

Next it was time to workout. I really wasn’t feeling it today and you can tell. It took me 34 minutes. I feel like it was a good workout, just uninspired.

I hate to say it but I am feeling flat. I have so many reasons to be happy at the moment and they are having a hard time breaking their way through the doom bubble. There is no particular reason I feel unhappy either. It just feels, doomish, with bouts of tears. It’s making me look at myself in a really negative way. It sucks.

I tried to get past the feels and got onto today’s drawing challenge topic; a coffee/tea cup. I feel like what I ended up drawing could be used for either. I found a tutorial; ‘How to Draw a Cup – It’s Important‘ and opted for the second cup. It looked so much easier than it was. A very good lesson though.

All challenge drawings can be found here…
40 Day Drawing Challenge on Three Peas, One Pod

I took some photos of all our little plants yesterday and thought I would share their progress. Honestly, I’m not sure there is any. All the stuff that should be happening is under the soil and the stuff happening above soil, isn’t very encouraging. I still enjoy taking photos of them or even singing to them. For all my gardening stuff, check out; Three Peas, One Pod.

I’ve been a bit obsessed with Quick Draw with Google. It’s like playing Pictionary with your computer. Sometimes you wonder about its guesses but I bet it also wonders about some of my attempts.

The afternoon started with some housework and lunch. Then quickly moved into nap territory when I felt a headache coming on. When I was awake again I spent some hours socialising. For the most part it was good.

I hope your day has been filled with happiness, good times and encouraging words. I think you’re marvellous, like a super hero!
