Day 295

This headache has followed me through another day. I get relief with meds or if I’m sleeping but it keeps coming back. Everything is feeling like a blur. I know I meditated last night but now I’m kinda questioning if I did or not. I’m sure I did! Didn’t I?

It was 40 C/104 F today and while I had great intentions for the day, once I’d whipped up a Puddles and had a face full of French the most I could muster up was standing in a cold shower (I want air-con) or watching more videos on Watercolour. At least I feel like I’m still learning even though I haven’t been doing. Tomorrow should be cooler and it should be easier to get some art-ing in.

Hubby gave Homer dog a bath today. Homer is pretty good at baths and is even better at drying himself on his towel. Soon as he was done in the bath, Homer ran into the lounge room, thought about wiping himself on the curtain, then waited patiently for his towel to be put on the floor so he could roll around on it. He’s so cute!

In today’s Adventures of Arthur Puddles we find him ready to be dunked. This is one of his favourite things to do. He’s either going to get a face full of cream pie OR he’s going to take a refreshing dip. He thought that was the best way to spend National Pie Day.

I hope your day has been cool, delicious and filled with smiles.


Day 197

My days aren’t running as they should but I am still getting some things done.

I did the Doodlewash – October 2019 prompt; 10. Pies. I wanted to do a cherry pie and found a reference (and recipe.) I’m not happy with my colour choices. I should have used a few different shades of red. I accidentally coloured over my first pastry layer with a yellow pencil. I think if it was done lighter it might have worked out okay. It’s all learning.

I spent far too long working on the Inktober 2019 prompt; 15. Legend. I have a habit of purposely mispronouncing the word legend, so it sounds like ‘leg-end’. That was my inspiration. I wanted to do a tattoo of the word legend on what is technically our leg end; the foot. I found a foot reference on Pinterest and then spent about four hours trying to sketch it. Feet are so much harder than I expected. I knew it would be hard but… just… wow!!

I did a couple of things off my happy list, sketched some more drawings to be water-coloured and had lots of silly giggles with wifey. I’m dreading wifey returning to the USA and want to spend as much time making wonderful memories with her as I can.

I hope you are surrounded by smiles, friends and family. Big hugs to anyone feeling alone right now. I hope you’re having a fantastic week.
