As ya’ll have been reading my significant other has been down with the Flu which leaves me with a whole lot more extra work around the house plus trying to help him. So when it came time for me to go to work I this morning I was more than happy. There I felt peace until everything hit the proverbial fan. We are under a Winter Weather Warning which meant that work was trying to get through at a faster pace in case people couldn’t get to the factory. Luckily, I live 3 blocks from my office and the only thing I have to worry about is getting up a major incline (both ways). I was stressed by the time I left cranking out art for school, colleges, and the retail side and decided that I was going to dive into loose watercolor techniques and doodling.
I wanted to throw in the towel truth be told. I didn’t like how it flowed until I added more water. My only regret is that I didn’t leave enough white space to my liking. But I LOVE this piece and can’t wait to have another go. I would tonight but my husband needs the kleenex (which he can’t reach even though it’s literally right next to him on the bed) and is to sore to get up and push buttons on a microwave to heat up the soup.
I also started working on the ‘Ballpoint Pen Doodle’ book that my daughter got me for Christmas. I did this while at the laundromat. It helped calm me while being around all those strangers. I usually panic and need my prescription intervention but since my husband was to sick to even sit up I had to go. I didn’t have to make eye contact and focused on copying the exercises in the book.
My reading log…I didn’t forget. I didn’t listen to my Jane Eyre today. I needed a break from that book. I didn’t realize all the gaslighting that occurs for poor Jane. I am looking forward to Mr. Rodchester admitting that he has feelings for Jane but I’m thinking that the author is going to make me wait until the last few chapters. I did, however, try catching up on some of my podcasts. I did promise myself I wouldn’t download any new episodes until I was caught up.
I hope I get some sleep tonight even though I’m still confined to my recliner since my hubby is contagious.
