There’s going to be multiple posts today because I finally feel better and I’m catching up. So if you’re subscribed to be notified per post… sorry… 😅
Yesterday I resumed my walks. Because I’ve been in some pain recently, it’s been a little harder to push past my lack of motivation. 😫 But I’m doing it. I was rewarded, too, in the evening, by the beautiful photo you see above, and by running into this little guy:
Earlier that day, Christopher took me for a short driving lesson (more of a “let’s try not to be terrified of the car” lesson). I didn’t cry this time, so that’s something. But I did hit a curb.
In the evening, after the driving thing, Christopher and I sat down together to play games. He played AoE, and I tried my hand at Patrician III, but have only gotten through the tutorials, so far.
Speaking of old games… I’ve been enjoying my walk down memory lane with Dungeon Keeper Gold so very much. I utterly love this game. This photo is from when I was playing it the other day, while working on commissions at the same time:
I’m getting right at the point where I’d always die before, so let’s see if I do any better 15+ years later… 😅 Actually that’s more like 20+, I suppose. Yikes. It’s such a good game, though.
In other things done to cheer myself up, I took care of my snaily friends (a chore, technically, but always a joy too, especially today as I found two hatchlings in the Pom nursery!) and I made name necklaces for all my new dinos. Blue and Toro get their movie/show names on their necklaces, but I gave names of my own to my new raptor, t-rex and indominus rex (two of them). I called them Frijol, Picaña, Carnitas and Cilantro. Now I have to make their little bandanas too, and they will be all set to appear in photos as I usually like to take.
Okay, got just a couple more posts to make and then I’m off on my second walk. It’s funny, sometimes I just get determined to feel better and get busy, and I just… do it. It isn’t always so easy, except when it is. 🤷♀️ I have way too much to do to let stress and such slow me down.
