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.


Day 235

Today was a good day but it feels like I’m missing something. I woke at 6.30 am and convinced that Homer would get me up around 7 am, I decided to stay up. Homer dog didn’t even get out of bed until 9 am. I would have got a sleep in.

I did get a chance to catch up with a friend in the early morning, so it was definitely worth getting up when I did. I probably overshared again. I’ve had that ‘sinking’ feeling all day.

A big portion of my day was spent in WoW. No surprises there. It was enjoyable enough.

In the afternoon there was a little art. I found a Youtube video; How to Draw a Landscape with Charcoal. I mostly watched the video. I didn’t really. I skipped in big time chunks to see the process and then just went for it.

We finished the day with a delicious vegetarian meal; Fully Loaded Baked Potatoes. The ‘bacon’ is made from mushrooms and it was super delicious. It tasted like the best parts of bacon and just melts in your mouth. Try it!!

I hope you’re having a deliciously satisfying weekend. Take care.
