Apparently I decided to take a hiatus for the last half of 2018. And that’s ok. Because I didn’t really have much to write about. Crazy online dating stories can only account for so much of my blog. And I’m not creating many new recipes these days, as most of my cooking is geared towards a 3 and a 5 year old. And they don’t care how gourmet something is.
I know at the end of 2017 I wrote a blog with some goals for 2018. Something about saving some money, running a few races, and some other things I can’t remember. Obviously, I accomplished none of them. However, I did accomplish one thing that has blown me away. I came to the realization that I AM FABULOUS. I turned 40 back in October, and I feel AMAZING.
Over the course of 2018, I’ve also picked up a couple of new hobbies. Well, I guess one is just expanding on a previous interest. I’ve gotten back into collecting houseplants. I currently have 40 or so. Here are a few of my planty babies.
I’ve also started learning/teaching myself how to sketch, draw, and paint with watercolours. It started when my nephews found a book at the library, teaching how to draw dinosaurs. My nephews are obsessed with dinos and keep asking me to draw pictures for them. I think I’m getting better.
And just to show off a little bit more, here’s one of my watercolour “masterpieces”. And yes, that is sarcasm. But I love playing with the paints and I find it very soothing to mix colours in my palette.
I’m hoping to blog more again this year. But we’ll see what 2019 brings.
