The lady from Sorrento Centre sent me the forms today. She sent them in attachments in a format that I couldn’t fill in. So, I printed them and filled them out. I didn’t have access to a scanner or a fax machine, so I took clear photos of the forms and emailed them to her, then I mailed the hard copies to her. So, now I just wait and Hope that I did it on time and that there are no problems. I’m nervous and excited at the same time. I’ve taken a couple of Karen Huehold’s watercolour classes before and have always enjoyed myself. The thing is, I just kind of “dable” at watercolour. I’m not the most talented person in the room…that’d be my dad and my sister. I have some happy accidents and I try really hard, but I’m not super talented, nor am I a natural watercolour artist – or any kind of artist for that matter!! I really enjoy it and love when it works out, but I feel intimidated by the talent that she usually has in the room. So, that’s what makes me a bit nervous. I’m probably more excited than nervous. I’ve always been drawn to art and wished I could draw well and paint well. However, I’m not necessarily the person you want on your pictionary team!! With time and patience, I can draw/paint, but I’m slow and overly picky and critical towards myself. (Towards myself?? That sounds strange…maybe I should’ve said “of myself”. I don’t know…) Hopefully I get a happy accident or two from this class. All of my favourite paintings have come from the times I’ve been in her class before. I really really hope that I get in. Fingers crossed!!
It wasn’t as hot today as it has been. It was still nice out, but not quite as roasting. It still felt pretty hot in our living room though. The air flow through there sucks and without the fans it’d be brutally hot in there. It cooled down a bit outside, but the house was still around 26 degrees Celsius, which is too hot! We need a new front window and if we can ever afford it, we’ll get one with windows that actually open and close. That way we can have a breeze and airflow from the kitchen, through the living room.That’d be much better than the stagnant air that’s in there now!!
My daughter had canoeing and mountain biking as her gym activities today. She was super afraid to go canoeing and I was worried about her. All her years at camp and the canoe still freaked her out!! However, she came home today and said that she absolutely loved canoeing!! She said that she had so much fun! They were even rocking it and splashing and goofing around sand, instead of being petrified, she loved it!! So that’s good. She wants to go back to camp next week, to Camp Wohelo’s teen leadership camp. She’s been going to this camp every single year, since she was a baby and I brought her with me to mom and kids camp!! She really wants to be an LIT (leader in training) this summer and a leader next summer (although, she doesn’t turn 16 until the end of next summer!) Last year there was a huge competition between her and all of her friends for who will be an LIT. This year none of her close friends are attending, so she will have a better chance! Also, it sucks competing against your best friends!! Her camp friend, who has also been going for years, will be there, so she won’t be without friends! I have to sign her up tomorrow. If she is asked to be an LIT for the majority of the summer, she’ll just have to tell them when we’re going to BC in August, so they know she’s unavailable that week.
Well, I’m going to head to bed, since it’s 1:00 in the morning. I’m tired. Night all! 💤😴
