Day 293

I listened to a new meditation guide last night; GUIDED SLEEP MEDITATION – The Cottage in the Snow. I found this one very hard to focus on and then the sounds of a crackling fire kept triggering flashes of light while I had my eyes closed. It wasn’t relaxing at all. I went back to one of my favourites; GUIDED SLEEP MEDITATION for Healing, I focused and fell asleep once the talking stopped.

I woke up late, which was a little disappointing but I’m really enjoying getting sleep so it didn’t worry me too much.

I started a new group of words in French. They are ‘Habit’ words. It seems I’m now learning about watching TV and the different days of the week. As usual I can’t recall any of them yet but feel pretty confident when I can see the words that I know what they are.

Watercolour still scares me… a lot. So I just had to pick something to do and start. I chose Watercolour Sunset Tutorial for Beginners. I didn’t listen to it, just watched what was being done. I also didn’t have a ‘pink’ paint so I just made something sorta close.

In today‚Äôs Adventures of Arthur Puddles we find him sharing a milkshake with a grey squirrel for Squirrel Appreciation Day.

I whipped up a meal plan towards the end of the day. I didn’t want to. I hoped that if I left it long enough the magical meal plan faeries would take care of it for me…but it seems I AM the meal plan fairy. There’s a couple of vegetarian meals and we’re trying out some ‘stir-fry shots‘ and ‘curry paste shots‘ for a couple of meals. You just add meat and veg and dinner is done.

Zucchini, Chilli and Ricotta Frittata : Wednesday
Chicken Thai Red Curry + Stir Fry Veg : Thursday
Veggie Burgers : Friday
Cauliflower Pizza Bake : Saturday
Hoisin Pork with Fried Rice : Sunday
Spaghetti Bolognese : Monday

I finished the day with 10 minutes of doodling and 10 minutes of smiling for no reason. I didn’t do them at the same time. I still find doodling to be so unnatural. I never have any idea what to draw which is why I drew flowers. I was using ultra fine point sharpies, it was my first time using them.

I hope your day has been filled with beautiful things, yummy things and things that make you smile.
