Today has not been a great one for fulfilling the challenge. In fact, I have not managed to do any of the suggested acts.
|Choose how to complete this act…|
|GREEN OPTION:Leave change taped to a car park meter or vending machine. |
YELLOW OPTION:Give a generous gift to someone you work with or volunteer with. Leave it on their desk while they’re on lunch and no one’s watching.
OPTION:How easy is it to hide an elephant? Not very. Think of a large gift and try and deliver it undercover.
Today has been my day off, which slight affects matters as I tend to not do much. Today I woke way before the alarm and drifted in and out of sleep. I was a bit worried about what the day would hold. I had to go into Burton for a mammogram – the 2nd annual check up since surgery and radiotherapy in 2017. We were there for ages because I had transferred from a different health authority (we moved in June last year) and all they had was a single sentence from my GP who I had had to ask to refer me. All is well, thankfully. I had the result and a thorough examination.
I know the area well and so knew where to park without paying. I was able to get a space within sight of where I used to live. I was back on my old stomping ground. And it felt a little strange.
I didn’t have any change to leave on a car park meter and I didn’t see a vending machine. Yellow option wasn’t going to happen. And even if it was a working day, nobody I work with has a desk (except my husband who may have guessed it was me if something appeared there). I admit I could have done the red option. I went into my local town this afternoon to drop off something to the charity shop and for a walk around, as well as picking up some hair dye in Tesco. I did ponder buying some chocolates to leave on a neighbour’s doorstep or for the ladies at church who make the tea – but couldn’t make a decision so I did nothing…. to my shame.
I ended the afternoon feeling exhausted, did some knitting and watched TV. I then came upstairs to do this blog, and my daily drawing which as it turned out was a daffodil. One of the ones from Sunday in the photo. So I have decided I will give a donation to McMillan Cancer as their emblem is a daffodil. I am so thankful that I didn’t need their services. It hasn’t been easy having to recount to the doctor my family history of breast cancer – mother, aunt and grandmother – and the doctor informed me that my daughters can start having mammograms when they are 40. This is not a conversation I am looking forward to.
I am also finding it difficult to continue finding something to draw every day, especially as I am often tired and lack enthusiasm. As you can see from th last few they have not been much more than a doodle. And to think that the art group I belong to is putting on an exhibition next weekend and I will be entering 3 paintings. I bought some frames today for this purpose.
Sorry if this has been a waffling on type of blog. Hopefully tomorrow will bring something a bit brighter.
