Depending on how much time I have this fall I am considering opening up gouache commissions.

one difference between cats and dogs is that dogs do absolutely nothing to mask their clinginess while cats pretend it’s a coincidence they’re in the same room as you 97% of the time

"The fact I am laying on your face means nothing"

I guess I should just give up on journal posts.

I was drawing a character from Deep South then suddenly she was in her wedding dress and I loved it. 
A wonderful winter bride. 

A good day overall.

Had a super lovely breakfast with friends as a kind of ‘going away’ thing. I sure will miss hanging out with all ya’ll!!

Then I got to go to the temple with Kim. It was a wonderful testimony builder of the power of the priesthood in my life, not just through others, but confirmed upon me directly as Eve.

Looking forward to a good nights sleep and to working hard tomorrow!

I’ve been so bad at journaling! I blame bad sleep.
So that was today. Being tired and trying to get stuff done when you’re tired just ends up with not much.
I did however run like two errands. So there is that.
I have a lot to do before this Friday……gaaaaaaahhhhh got to do it one thing at a time!!!

Pretty normal day.
Thank you to Kim for going shopping with me.
Thank you to a dad who cares about me and is patient with my really not good at finances brain.
Looking forward to the sabbath day tomorrow. I am grateful for the sacrament and the atonement. (I need to go to the temple again.)

Oh no! I just realized I missed several days of journals!

It’s not like anyone cares but they are good for me so I need to be better at keeping it up.

It was the last day of work today! Hallelujah!!
I feel a lot of relief and gratitude, I have no idea what student teaching will bring, but at least it will be a change in pace.

I am thankful for all that I was able to get done today.

I am especially grateful for the time I was able to spend in the temple with a beloved friend.

And for the time I was able to spend with family at dinner.

Today…

Work went by quickly.

I have three days of work left.

Ate like a classy family on our unfinished section of our house.

Talked with a friend.

Take your time

A good day over all.

I love spending time with friends and family. They bring the perfect balance into my life.

I was able to find some ancestors to do temple work for and I am very excited to do that for them.

I’ve had some good time to talk with god today and figure out more of what I need to do to change a few of my bad habits, the first step being patience with myself.

Well now I get to freak out about the last week of work! But hey it’s the last week, thank the heavens!!!!

I was reading through my old journal posts and I really want to get back to writing them. They help me, even when i am having a bad day, maybe especially when I am having a bad day.

So starting tonight I am going to do journal posts again. Sorry if you hated them, not sorry because they help me.
