I still don't

Maybe because I'm not religious. You must believe it before you can see it :P

I would love to see a drawing of chocolate cake! That would be amazing to hang in the kitchen :D 

Especially the way you can paint, I might not see what you intended but I LOVE the colors and your style <3

Something I haven't mentioned, mainly because I hadn't noticed - there's a marked improvement in my neck stiffness. I think I might have finally worked out the correct pillow configuration for sleepytime, in conjunction with the stretches the doc gave me. I still don't have 100% of the rotation, but it's way better than it has been for a while. Pleasing.

 

Yay! I hope the improvement continues :)

Trust me, that is not the case.

No painting in the end. Did some reading, and then, because it was such a nice evening, took Dex the dog and the Wolverine out for a walk and we spent some time watching a football match on the playing fields across the road from our house. We sat on the grass and did some father-son bonding. Then we went home and watched some Bob Ross videos until the female folks came home.

 

Gratitude

I am grateful for positive feedback.

I am grateful for Doodlies.

I am grateful for being able to spend some one-on-one time with my youngest son.

I am grateful for your gratitude lists. It helps my attitude to adjust to something less crabby. :D

 

 

I wish I could say the same thing this morning, I've been like a bear with a sore head since Saturday night. It's attempt #3648 at breaking the sugar addiction, and it's a struggle.

 

I am grateful for clear blue skies.

I am grateful for the English bank holiday, which will at least make my working day a little quieter.

I am grateful for the supportive people around me on NF.

I am still alive. There hasn't been a great deal to report on over the last couple of days. The weekend was spent mostly with work and church stuff (we're going live with a new contract at work this week, which has kept me away from NF somewhat, and my church is going multi-campus during September, so we've been prepping for that as a team), and also getting SWFS ready for starting her college course yesterday - her first day went really well, she says everyone has been super nice, and she'll be away a couple of times over the next 12 months (to London and Spain, observing legal proceedings in different settings), which is exciting.

 

I've gone on a complete sugar/carb purge to try to get myself back on track. It's the only thing that seems to work for me to any great degree, since I lack any kind of self-control and moderation whatsoever. The first couple of days were quite rough, but I seem to be getting over the worst of it now.

 

Planning to paint tonight, once I get some crucial admin stuff dealt with. Also, I've been binge-watching the first season of Lucifer, so I might get another one or two of those in once the kids are bedded down for the night.

 

Gratitude

I am grateful for the continuing good weather

I am grateful for SWFS settling into college and taking her first steps towards fulfilling her purpose

I am grateful for the turkey steaks which are waiting at home for me

Is that the one with the guy from Miranda? I confuse it with Preacher a lot. I'm liking both so far. (She says, having seen one episode of each)

You can get turkey steaks?! A magical land is this one. 

 

Hope the carb/sugar annihilation is going well for you today!

Yes, although never having watched Miranda, I had to Google to check. I've watched a couple of Preachers as well, I need to go back and finish that.

 

Managed to get a bit of painting done last night - I wasn't terribly thrilled with it, but it was relaxing, which is the real goal. I'm going to try something else tonight, hopefully, so I'll get pics of both and post them here.

 

@deftona, the Zone of Containment is in danger of being breached! I'll be loitering about in your area (Ooo-err, Missus! Fnarr!) for a couple of days next April. Evesham, to be precise. You've been given adequate warning. Put the dust sheets up.

Thanks for the warning, I will do my best to ensure the fallout from the breach is taken care of. But what brings you to Evesham?

 

I should tell you that I am heading to Edinburgh in a matter of weeks. RUN!

My sister in law is getting married in Cheltenham, she lives in the Cotswolds, and we got a good deal on a cabin near Evesham, so we're going to make a weekend of it.

 

Duly noted about the 'Burgh. What's the occasion?

I am grateful for rain and quiet.

I am grateful for a Saturday with no plans or commitments.

 

For some reason, I'm having issues sharing the paintings I've done this week. I'll keep trying.

This is a sentence I never expected to see.  Congrats on your sugar purge, at least, I think congratulations is what is called for in this situation.  I'm not actually entirely sure.
