I could say it was a terrible week for reaching my goals, but no matter which way you look at it, I still made progress on my novel, (which is awesome). I did a little bit of painting and though I did miss out on yoga, I did get some snowshoeing in. So there’s that. It’s exercise, right? And there is always next week.
I am almost finished the next chapter in my story. I really thought it was going to be finished on Monday, Tuesday at the latest….sadly that didn’t happen.
Tuesday ended up being a complete write-off. School was cancelled because of the weather. I work much better when there are no distractions around. Trust me, everything is a distraction, but it’s worse when my boys are home. It’s not them…it’s me lol.
My mood was off, too. And that didn’t help. Headaches, depression and all over body pain made want to just curl up and have a nap.
I got one afternoon of painting in instead of the three afternoons that I had planned.
The picture to the left is the reference photo that I was working from.
Below is my work in progress and I’m realizing now how bad the perspective is on that pool of water! Ooops! I do like the colours, though so there’s that.
Yoga didn’t happen this week. I seem to be able to make the Tuesday class. It’s at a perfect time for me to be able to make it without running around like a crazy lady to get there.
Tuesday, I felt miserable. Headache, all over body aches and depression. I had an angel on one shoulder telling me to stay home and relax. The angel on the other shoulder said, “Go! You will feel so much better if you do!”
I agreed with the stay home angel, but I later found out that the class was cancelled due to weather. So, I didn’t feel toooo bad about not going. The weather wasn’t great the rest of the week either, the roads were terrible for travelling on.
I got extra exercise by shovelling the driveway twice this week. Yep, my muscles were feeling that!
I also got a bit of snowshoeing in! I posted some pics from that here. It was a gorgeous day for it, but boy oh boy were my legs burning! I only did about 2 km, a fairly short jaunt but it was enough for me.
Last week, I mentioned doing some blog posts that relate to the novel I’m writing since it is interlaced with legends and historical stories that link and weave the characters together. I have a post ready to go for Monday, so I hope you’ll stop by and check it out. It’s the story behind three of the characters, Art, Delvcaem and Becuma and is based on the Irish fairy tale Becuma of the White Skin by James Stephens.
How about you? Did you reach your goals?
Have a wonderful week and thanks so much for stopping by!
