Near Giddy-Word of the Day Challenge-7-16-20

Feliz Jueves!

I’m near giddy now that vacation is so close! I submitted a couple of my pictures to Back Roads of Texas group on Facebook that were well-received, so I’m hoping to take more good ones if I can sneak out a couple of mornings while we are there.

Still trying to get as much accomplished as possible, haven’t even started packing yet, maybe tomorrow.

Spanish and Grammar studies are going well. Not so much with typing and transcription lessons, but I will get there. Typing practice after this.

Halfway done with latest Diamond Art project, I found I get more done listening to music or an eBook because i don’t have to keep looking up from the project. 🙂

I hope everyone has a wonderful week next week, and a great weekend too, I will catch up when I can!

Peace out, peeps!!

Moveable Parts-Word of the Day Challenge 7-15-20

Feliz Mercoles everyone and how is your Wednesday shaping up?

Mine started out same as every day this week, with Spanish lessons, grammar lessons, emails, and working on my typing tutor. I have lost the new one I downloaded, so I’m just working with the old one I started with-Typing.com.

My days are filled with many moveable parts. I have family obligations, studying to do, housework, writing when I can, crafting when I can, and so much more. Vacation is getting closer, and I’m trying to cram in as much as possible before we go, though truth be known, I’ll probably bring my laptop, so I can study, blog, or whatever during downtimes.

I’ll probably bring my DA project as well, and maybe Becky will help me work on it. I have multiple daubers and trays, so she can help and learn a new craft at the same time! She’s a pretty crafty person herself. Oh, and you KNOW I’ll be bringing Quirkle! hahaha

Yesterday, I did all my normal stuff here at the house, then went to Dad’s and Kevin and I took him to lunch, then I took him to the dermatologist, (which went fine) then we went to Kroger for his weekly fix of fruit, yogurt, juice, ice cream, and cookies. Hey, at least he’s a sugar-free cookie monster!

Then I helped him change his sheets, fold his laundry, wash his old sheets, change the battery in his hearing aid, put his groceries away, and by that time I was tired and sweaty. I got my knee injection yesterday, but it wasn’t hurting, I think it was kind of hot in Dad’s house. Anyway, I didn’t stay to play pool because I was tired and still had more to do at home to get ready for dinner and study more typing. I am averaging about 31 wpm with 97% accuracy, nowhere near what I need for transcription. But I will get there with more practice.

I like to listen to Binaural Beats music to study by when I’m typing, or studying things that need focus and deep concentration. You should try it! Just look for Binaural Beats on youtube, there are many styles to choose from.

OK! Well, I’m off to shower and try to cool down before I get to the difficult studies for today. I hope you all have a great Wednesday, try to stay cool, and hold off on the tasty beverages, no matter how tempting, until after 5 if possible. I realize it’s five o’clock somewhere, but unless you are in vacation mode, it’s probably not a good habit to start! Stay stress-free my friends!

My Latest Contribution-More to Follow Soon

So, between breaking my ankle, my back injury and now my knee surgery, I’ve been sitting a lot. Sometimes to get off the iPad and or computer I decide to color a page or two. Since I can’t get up to my dining table to work on my Diamond Art Painting, I’ve had more time to color, which I sometimes do while watching mindless tv shows.

Here is my latest attempt, I’ve been experimenting with gel pens, I really like them, but I have more colors in the colored pencils. My next page after this will be a combined work of both.

This one used a limited amount of colored gel pens for a different effect

Not my best effort, I thought the outline needed to show up more, but I think it made it look worse afterward.

My next page will be a butterfly. I keep forgetting to take before and after pics. Sorry. This is all part of Linda G Hill’s monthly challenge The Escapist Coloring Club, which I love being part of. It gives me an excuse to relax and color, we all need that from time to time, right? Very therapeutic! 😊
