Here it is in all it's
While walking the yard with coffee and the hubster, I told him that I had tried a watercolor and that it was horrible. He suggested I burn it. Should I have thrown it away? I think I need to keep it as a step along the way to getting better. While it is very amateurish, it isn't actually painful to look at - okay, it is a little painful!
On to other things.
I participated in a Dylan lyrics ATC swap at ATCs for All and received these in the mail recently. I really like them:
Yesterday on a shopping trip to town I went to Target and bought a bath scale that measures body fat, bone mass, BMI, % water, and weight. I'm not sure I truly believe it is possible for such a thing to be accurate, but was pleased to find that all my measurements (except weight) were in the acceptable range. I had weighed on an old scale I had about a week ago and found that I was in the mid 150s, which thrilled me. The last time I was weighed before that was at the doctor's office last Fall at which time I was 178. However, on the new scale (which I assume is more accurate than my realllllly old one) I weigh 160.3; that does not please me very much. Although I am not one to stress over the numbers, I am greatly attracted to the mid-150s and so that is my current goal.
I also purchased a wrist worn blood pressure gadget because I want to know and the hubster takes blood pressure medicine, but is now working out regularly and eating pretty sensibly. Mine was its usual healthy reading and his was quite low. I will have him check it again today and see what it says.
Right now I need to go get a bit of breakfast (Shredded Wheat & Bran, with
frozen thawed blueberries and fresh strawberries) and then get on the treadmill. I am tutoring later this afternoon, but except for that I think the day is mine to do as I please. I think I'd better get back to my watercolor pencil class lessons and see if I can learn something.
