Art, Thoughts, Words and Ramblings

Create the life you want to live.

I’ve had a few different thoughts dancing around between my ears today.  Nothing major, just stuff that I think about when my brain goes idle. (Which is never as often as I’d like it to!)

They say that it takes about 21 days to start a new habit.  I haven’t been able to find out how long it actually takes to break an existing habit, but I have a feeling that it takes a fair bit longer, especially since habit-y things become ingrained in our day to day schedules.   Human nature is interesting – it is actually easier to build new habits – than to rid yourselves of old ones – even when those habits may not be all that healthy for you.  I’m not sure why that is – I guess because it’s harder to distance yourself from things that you do on a regular basis.   I have some habits I want to rid myself of – others I’d like to build up and reinforce – so let’s see what the next 21 days bring us.

Today, Charles and I went over to visit a friend of ours who needed a little bit of muscle moving an old television.  We also had some old electronics that we needed to get rid of, and the Wake County electronic recycling center was where we were heading.  We got those things taken care of, and afterwards, we went out for lunch.  It was really good to hang out with a friend I don’t see all that often.   I think we should do the hang out thing more often – it’s good to be out and about and social!

This afternoon, I spent some time writing letters, binge watching Homeland, and just hanging out.  It’s bee a relaxing day – and I’m enjoying the down time.  Been working in my journal and planner, and doodled a bit.   Just doing little bursts of creativity – and enjoying it.

I’ve thought about maybe going to see a movie tomorrow.  There are a few out that I’d like to see:

  • A Dog’s Purpose
  • Moana
  • Rogue One
  • Hidden Figures

Yes, they’re older movies – and in all honesty – I should have seen them by now – but there were all kinds of things that kept me from going.  Sunday is my day ‘off’ from my game – so there’s nothing keeping me from going – and I have a craving for movie popcorn – so why not!?

I’ve got a bunch of other things I need to take care of as well, so I’ll need to adjust accordingly (and on the fly even!)

Time to wrap it up for the night and get ready for Saturday Night Raid.  *wheeee*
