I spend a fair amount of time sitting with ice packs on my feet and ankles, 2-3 times a day. Most days I grab the computer and a cup of coffee in the morning before settling in for 30 min of cold. At night I watch something on TV. Why not sketch something instead?! Anything! Put my brain to work in a good way. Even for just 5 min since my skills are lacking these days. A few weeks back I purchased a nice 3 pack of sketch journals, something easy to pop into my bag and drag around everywhere. (Yes Rosie, you’re my inspiration!) I’ve actually been pulling it out during office visits: recording furniture at the dentist, machines that are hooked up to my feet and cause pain during physical therapy, a sunflower bouquet. This morning it was the watering can on the back deck. Nothing earth shattering, but a reminder that I need to water plants today since it’s expected to reach 90F (32 C). Just glad I’ll be working downstairs today!
I’m notorious for not keeping this practice up, so time will tell. Maybe daily posting will help….
