Day 346

It was another night of healing meditation before sleep last night. I hope that this meditation is having a positive affect on my health. If nothing else, it’s definitely helping me to sleep better. After hubby got up this morning, he closed the door so Homer dog wouldn’t wake me. I slept in. It felt good.

That was about the end of the feeling good for the day. My back was crazy sore when I got up but thankfully through the day it started feeling a bit better. I will put that down to the fact that I channelled my inner potato and did nothing on the couch all day. Well, I Puddled and did some French and Norwegian practice.

In today’s Adventures of Arthur Puddles we find him learning about butterflies on National Learn About Butterflies Day.

The weekend is here and it’s time to relax (I started early.) I hope everyone has a relaxing, stay-at-home type weekend. Stay safe and healthy and stock up on that toilet paper when you can!!

Day 345

I listened to healing meditation before sleep last night. It was a nice sleep but not enough because Homer dog woke me up early. I tried to get back to sleep but as soon as hubby had jumped in the shower, Homer was waking me up again. Not for any reason, just because he wanted to wake me up. He’s fun like that.

My back isn’t feeling much better and a day of art-ing probably hasn’t helped. I just couldn’t go another day without pulling out the watercolours. I found some inspiration on Youtube; Simple Watercolour Landscape Painting. I watched the whole thing through once, then paused it on the finished version and did what I wanted.

In today’s Adventures of Arthur Puddles we find him, Rosie and Douglas dog having some fun ice-skating. They didn’t need skates but they did need their earmuffs to celebrate National Earmuff Day.

I finished the day with an excellent practice of French and Norwegian. I think it might be getting close to a new topic in each, although I won’t start them both on the same week.

I hope your week has been filled with good health, good friends and an abundance of creativity. Stay safe.

Day 344

I got to bed at the right time last night but had trouble turning my brain off. I just didn’t want to go to sleep. I listened to healing meditation and set it to play a couple of others after it finished. I don’t remember when I fell asleep, all I know is that Homer dog woke me at 6 am to go outside.

My back hurt more today than it did yesterday so I spent another day in bed. It feels so much better when I’m laying down. It’s driving me crazy not being able to workout or keep my kitchen clean. MY KITCHEN!!!!!

I spent the late afternoon doing Puddles and languages. It wasn’t a great day of either.

In today’s Adventures of Arthur Puddles we find him and Douglas dog planting some flowers for National Plant a Flower Day. Douglas loved making some holes in the dirt for the flowers.

I hope your day has been filled with sunshine, flowers and all the things that make you smile. Stay safe and healthy.

Day 341

I almost got through the entire meditation guide last night before falling asleep. It was a decent sleep and I woke feeling pretty good around 7 am. Hubby had to go to work for a couple of hours, so it wasn’t really a weekend day….. for him. Apparently I took full advantage of the weekend and didn’t get much done.

In today’s Adventures of Arthur Puddles we find him and Douglas dog gift wrapping a vintage Barbie doll. Arthur thought Rosie would love to celebrate National Barbie Day with a piece of history.

It’s the start of a new Happy List week. The goals are the same as last week. Last week I did fairly good… sort of okay… I did some stuff… not much. Eep! I worked out 4/5 times, did the water drinking, did the watercolouring, I sang twice and I was in bed on time. I know there were bouts of smiling for no reason but didn’t really time them. I’m sure I can do better this week.

  3. Watercolour, 3 days
  4. Do art lesson/’how to’, 3 days

I hope this week is filled full of goodness, success and bouts of uncontrollable smiling. Have fun and take care.

Day 340

It was another night of  HEAL while you SLEEP ★ Your Cells are Listening Guided Meditation Focused on Healing for my meditation. I’m really enjoying this guide. I have been sleeping much deeper and feeling a little better when I wake. I slept in! We didn’t get out of bed til after 11 am.

I worked on Puddles for a bit before spending the afternoon doing mythic dungeons in WoW. Whenever I did something victorious in the game, I would whisper, ‘International Women’s Day’. I’m pretty sure that’s how you’re supposed to celebrate it.

In today’s Adventures of Arthur Puddles we find him and Douglas dog bringing Rosie some lunch. She was very excited to see them. They were going to spend the day celebrating International Women’s Day but Rosie got called into work. Arthur loved the view from her office.

I finished the day with French and Norwegian. Not much to report. It was a fair practice.

I hope your weekend is relaxing, fun and you are surrounded by people that make you smile. Stay safe.

Day 339

I got to bed just after midnight and did  HEAL while you SLEEP ★ Your Cells are Listening Guided Meditation Focused on Healing. I got more from it this time but still fell asleep before it ended and barely remembered it this morning. I feel like I’m in less pain though. Maybe it’s working? I ended up waking up late.

I crawled out of bed around 8 am and got to chatting with hubby. We reminisced over some music compilation cassette tapes that we both had when we were teenagers; 100% Hits. It was an Australian compilation series of what was in the charts at the time. It started in 1991 and went for much longer than I thought. I had all of them up to 100% Hits Volume 15. Hubby and I wanted to relive the tunes from our teens so I jumped on Youtube in hope. I got lucky. A user by the name of Darrin Hyde had uploaded a number of them, if not all of them. That’s exactly what we’ll be listening to all weekend.

Once hubby scurried off to work, I worked out. My lower back was feeling yesterdays workout but I pushed through. I did the 30 minute workout in 27 minutes. It was a good effort.

Then it was onto the art-ing. I spent an hour or so trying to edit a background from the Puddles series (redrawing it would have been sooooo much quicker.) Then just as I was getting ready to do the sketching part, my discord messages to wifey stopped going through. So we ended up chatting on voice instead. Five hours later, I had whipped up a Puddles but the day was almost over. I can’t complain though. I love spending time with wifey.

In today’s Adventures of Arthur Puddles we find him playing Cereal Waterfall with Douglas Dog. The aim of the game is to pour the milk into the bowl until it creates a waterfall out of the bowl, over the table and into the waiting mouth below. They had so much fun on National Cereal Day.

By the time wifey had zombie-shuffled off to bed, my day was almost over. I finished with a face full of French and Norwegian. This new French topic is really kicking my booty. I’m not going to give up, of course. I’ll just need a lot more focused practice with French next week.

Tomorrow is the first day of the weekend for hubby, so he’ll have a feet up sort of day. I’ll spend the morning Puddling and the afternoon WoW’ing. I’m not really looking forward to the WoW’ing. I need a Paladin!!! You know who you are.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend whether you are relaxing, being super productive and everything in between. Stay safe.

Day 337

I tried a meditation guide made by Progressive Hypnosis; HEAL while you SLEEP ★ Your Cells are Listening Guided Meditation Focused on Healing. I must have found it relaxing because I fell asleep half way through. I’d like to give it another go and get a little more out of it. I woke up late, another sign the meditation was good.

When I got out of bad I had a crazy bad pain across the back of my shoulders, so I didn’t bother with a workout. I’ll pick that up again tomorrow. So with that not on the agenda, I got to art-ing.

I wanted to practice painting another scene with people in it in the most casual way possible (which is why it’s kind of terrible.) I was interested in seeing how I could build up the colours. This was my reference (which it looks nothing like.. at all…not even a little bit!)

In today’s Adventures of Arthur Puddles we find him having a relaxing day at home. He’s decided to catch up on some gaming with his sidekick Mr Soda and Mr Cheese Doodles. He’s also celebrating Cheese Doodle Day.

That little bit of art seemed to take up my whole day. While I worked on art, I listened/watched a whole heap of art-ing videos on Youtube. I finished the day with some French. Today wasn’t a complete waste but it sorta feels like it.

I hope your day has been filled with colour, creativity and happiness.
