    Hug for depression and lack of sleep in the preceding 2 months. It is winter, omicron is surging and you have sleep to catch up on. Embrace it because the post meal sleep seems like a perfect way to deal with those issues.

    A kip after a meal - if it works, take it for now.

    Thank you @dunelm

    I learnt something today. I cannot do a hidden image of Popeye this small, because the lossy effect of jpeg degrades it so much that even I cannot find it, but in my iPad camera folder, it is actually perfect in every detail including whiskers.

    Two thirds way up the left side of the willow tree trunk you might be able to make out a blurred heart shaped nose...

    I need to figure out how small I can go with his face, without losing it when I post it on here.

    But, it is not until I post on here, that I can see how much it degrades.

    I will do better next time!

    Just a thumbnail of head outlined.
    Yet on my iPad the detail is very clear.

    I understand @lindisfel
    I feel the same way, I don't like losing time for sleep during the day.

    But these are strange times in every way. If you need that sleep, then you need it.
    So, take that sleep when your body tells you.

    My orders!!!

    Morning all.

    Big curry and 45g of basmati last night, so escaped with an FBG of 8.9 mmo/lt at 0700. My morning FBG (12 hour fast) is usually higher than my midday readings, so am thinking about switching the timing. I only eat about 10g of carbs at breakfast.

    Car polish. Sunday walk (seal and fish shoal spotted recently from the shore). Have a great day.

    Fbg 7.9

    Creative today...
    Another sheet of paper in my sketchbook with a wash of different coloured acrylics.
    The paper soaked up the ink from my fude pens. Just absorbed and absorbed it. This is a waste of my good fude pens.
    I did some pastels on it with my pastel pencils.

    Tomorrow I will find some cheap black pens to do the drawing with first.

    Might do a few days of this black outline and coloured pastel pencils...

    Take care.
    Hugs if you need them.

    Greetings to all. My fbg is a known unknown which is actually very relaxing - stating the bleep obvious. Mackerel salad for my main meal yesterday. Quick maths tells me that happens at least 280 days a year and isn't likely to change. @Jojo85 Sydney can now enjoy glorious weather:angelic: @gennepher thank you for the creative. I like this very much - from memory as much as any you have shared. Really low energy day for me yesterday but various devices are mainly in good places. I don't think I need to be 74.5 kgs (>kg too heavy for my liking) (11 S 10.4 ) but I am certain I need lean muscle and LCHF won't do that. Sirloin steak today - its isn't salmon or even buffalo but it was clogging up a freezer and has some protein. Have a safe, enjoyable day. Cricket, rugby, football and NFL with some movement and "physical jerks" here.

    Enjoy the walk. How far is that and will you eat there? I've forgotten the name of that gorgeous looking pub/restaurant - Victoria Inn?- but I know you like it. Please at least treat Mr K to either a sausage roll or quality single malt.:angelic:

    Good morning everyone on a most splendid sunny start here in the dark and dangerous north. We seem to be in a sample box of weather types so wonder what comes next - hope it’s not those golden discs of toffee left at the bottom of the tin (now made out of plastic). Stuffed cabbage last night - bit left of field but tasted pretty good. Now I need to find something to do with the rest of the cabbage. Indian fried cabbage probably with a low carb curry. Mrs Miggins is already up and about - filling the washing machine - we might be having fresh bedding today - luxury.

    More layered in spray - again! Hope everyone has a pleasant day, must be time for a koffy.

    Thank you for sharing your art. Stuffed cabbage and Indian fried cabbage? Piqued my interest until Mr Daltrey sung up. We each have our own tastes and whilst it doesn't do to ossify, humbly accepting what nature and nurture have conspired to produce is the place I'm beginning to feel comfortable. Enjoy your day and the clean bedding - GSM is the new metric, thread count is so last century but plain white, always plain white. I daren't tell JKP about thread count so keep it on the q.t. please.
