This morning I woke up feeling very gray, not even blue. As I made my way through my melancholy day, my son and I really had a lovely time. He beat me again at another game of Heroscape, but I did triumph in Battleship. As the evening comes to a close, I finally figured out why I am not my chipper self. I haven’t been going to bed on time. I’ve stayed up late every night this week working on my art journal. I often stay up when my husband is out of town, but not this late. Although I had a productive and fun time with my late nighters, tonight I’m off to bed at a decent hour, being mindful of the lesson I’ve learned so many times before: Take care of myself physically and emotionally! This week I’ve only taken care of myself emotionally, but without the physical part, the emotions run out pretty quick too.
The boy and I ate cheese and chocolate this week. We also ate lunch at our favorite restaurant, You Say Tomato. For dessert yesterday, we split this:
and today we went back just for a treat because they made my son’s very favorite chocolate cake:
I wonder if that had anything to do with him calling them early Tuesday asking if they had any made.
I’ve really enjoyed working in my art journal and am finally finding the merge between my written journal and my art. Kira has encouraged us to take our art journals out and about, and not to just work on them at home, so I packed my sweet little cigar box with essential supplies. (My dad fixed up the cigar box for me. It used to be my grandpa’s ~ makes it even cooler.) Tossed it in my messenger bag, and worked on my art journal while we had lunch at You Say Tomato. It was so fun! So I had to take it with me again today.
Well I’m off to get a good night’s sleep. Sweet dreams, ya’ll.
