I've been trying to eat healthier lately, but I think we can all admit that healthy eating and easy and convenient eating are two different things. The other day though, I got a protein cookie from the gas station for my second breakfast. It wasn't delicious, a bit doughy and dry at the same time and not very sweet, but I still enjoyed it. My gut though seemed to enjoy it much, much more. I don't think I've ever been so flatulent in my entire life. We're talking full blown power rips every five minutes or so for basically the rest of the day. I feel so sorry for my coworkers. So, learn a lesson from me, Pubski, if you see a protein cookie and you're wondering whether or not to give it a shot, my answer would be "only if you wanna torture the people around you."
I'm working on making another rat owl, third and last one, from another old shirt. I now know how button collections get started. At the rate I'm going, I'll never run out of buttons for the rest of my life. If I recycle more and more old clothes of mine and Dala's, the same will be true for fabric. I just gotta find a way to keep things organized.
Speaking of sewing, a few different community centers around here host sewing circles. Dala goes to one from time to time and I think when possible, I'll try and join her. I know I'll enjoy meeting new people and I bet I'll learn a thing or too as well.
I think soon, between the books I make, the pictures I draw, and the dolls I'm sewing, I'm running out of places to keep things (let alone any real reason to keep them). I still give away quite a lot as gifts, but I'm thinking it might be fun to take up Geocaching as a hobby and using it to leave things behind.
It's not always easy, but the learning goes on. Besides learning basics like numbers, people, etc., I'm focusing on building vocabulary around animals, food, and adjectives at the moment, because I like talking about animals, everyone likes talking about food, and you can't paint a picture with words without using adjectives. I'm struggling a bit, with everything from grammer to understanding accents to different dialects using different words, but it turns out those are common issues for anyone starting out, so I'm not too discouraged.
johnnyFive has allowed me to pm him some practice paragraphs and the feedback I've gotten from him has been super helpful. He's corrected some of my grammer for me, taught me some new words, and has given me some insightful information too. It's been fun. fletcher, if you're still game too, I think I might be ready to try some light conversations. You'll have to forgive me in advance though if my sentences are super simplistic.
All loose thoughts today.
