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 343

I tried to listen to my daily healing meditation before sleep last night but my phone kept going to a black screen and Youtube would stop playing. When I woke this morning and checked the phone, the guide had stopped at 11 minutes. I missed my meditation and definitely felt worse for wear this morning.

Sometimes I just act like things aren’t wrong because I don’t want them to be wrong. So if I ignore them, they don’t exist, right? Last week I pulled something in my back when I was working out. I ignored it and worked out the following day. The last few days have been really painful and with a looming head cold, I’m feeling pretty wrecked.

So my day didn’t really consist of much. More sleep, a Puddles, a fantastic practice of French and Norwegian and a handful of dishes (I can’t stand having a messy kitchen.) Not a bad attempt at a day.

In today’s Adventures of Arthur Puddles we find him building a dog house for Douglas dog. This is the first time Arthur has tried to build something. He didn’t even know what half the tools did. It was an interesting way to spend National Tool Worship Day.

I learned two things about myself today…
1. I don’t know what tools in a toolbox look like.
2. I don’t like corn tortillas.

I hope your day has been filled with happiness, knowledge and all the things you enjoy. Take care.

Day 342

I got to bed early and listened to the same meditation guide I have been using for the last few nights. I had a good sleep but I woke up feeling pretty unwell. I hope I’m not getting sick. Before hubby had even gone to work, I had gone back to bed. I listened to Rapid Healing While You Sleep and spent the morning trying to get more rest.

When I got up I worked on today’s Puddles, did French and Norwegian and that was it. Hopefully I’ll feel better tomorrow.

In today’s Adventures of Arthur Puddles we find him and Douglas dog getting dressed up for a National Mario Day party.

I hope your day has been filled with good health, good friends and good luck.

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.

  1. Workout, 5 days
  2. Drink 2 bottles of water, 5 days
  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.
