Day 80 | 100 Days of Self Care


IMG_9783When I was a kid I would sketch eyes all the time. When I was in college I had a self-portrait assignment. I spend more than half my time on the eyes. Even now, I’ll doodle eyes on napkins at diners and on sidewalks with big pieces of chalk.

Never once have I tried to create an eye out of watercolor. Here’s my first attempt.

Today’s Self Care Stats:


  • Light, healthy breakfast
  • 1 mile walk with the pup
  • Knee stretches/exercises
  • Ankle exercises
  • Hanging out in the sunshine with the kids
  • Another walk. This one 1.5 miles
  • Watercolor studies
  • Gratitude awareness
  • Art reading
  • More planning on my marketing class
  • Delightful hot shower
  • Normal bedtime

How I felt

A little sore in my upper body from hurling softballs yesterday. It’s a good reminder to warm up gradually and to stretch these places.

Take away point

Never be afraid to try something in a new medium.
