I splurged on watercolor pencils and I went crazy with it.
Monthly Archives: May 2013
I picked the pencil and bought a new drawing pad. I think I’m all set to get back on track with my A Sketch A Day project. Nah.. I’m not going to even try to catch up with the number of days I’ve missed out. Too much pressure that will leads to Discouraged Napping. I need to stay positive. Unlucky for the husband, the way of me staying positive is by spending. But heyyyy.. whatever floats my boat. *winks*
On the greener side of the story, here are my successful little buds of herbs. 2 out of the 4 seed packs I bought finally came to life while the other two… well failed to make any appearance from day 1 . These are the Oregano and Thyme. Planted Thyme 7 days after Oregano hence the difference in the growing process. I got green fingers yaw’ll *shows fingers literally covered in green paints*
Discouraged Napping. I’m guilty of that. I’m on artist block at this point of time and I just couldn’t bring my mood up to even hold a brush properly. Yeah… I should get a kick in the back. And as for the husband, he prefers to leave me be and let me wallow in my misery napping all by myself. I guess that way, he gets more alone time with his PS3.
So I go for the next best thing. I filled my time with a lot of reading and gardening (OK, I dont know if you can consider gardening as the next best thing, but staring at the small pots filled with ugly soils sure beats laying around, staring at the ceiling for hours). hahaha. Yeah. I garden now and by gardening, I mean, putting and arranging soils and succulent plants in a jar and continuously hovering over it every single day to see if it grows. And I’m planning to start a herbs garden too. I’ve planted Basil, Oregano and Parsley from seeds but there’s no sign of life yet and I’m still hopeful. The packaging says to give it 10 days. So 10 days we shall wait. Oh man.. I hover on these little pots of seeds too. Everyday and night. Poking and jabbing the soils, putting it under UV light, moving it to the windowsill every morning so it’ll get more sunlight and pestering the husband by shoving the small pots in his face and asking him “Look! Did you see anything growing in there?” every chance I get when he enters the room. Yeah.. I bet he would prefers if I just go back to my napping now. Dont you, husband? He will usually answer it with “Give it a rest or you’ll kill them”.
As if I’m gonna kill it! Pfft. *continue staring at the small seeds to see if anything spurts that I missed out earlier”
In a way, this falls under my creative process too – “Random Internet Surfing”. I got the idea of doing my own indoor garden while surfing aimlessly in Pinterest and this is what I plan to do.
Yupe. Big plan.
Check back on me after 10 days, ok? We’ll see if I ever manage to grow something by then.
