So i’ve started a new habit. Don’t know how long it will last – with me habits aren’t exactly a strong suit. And, considering the palsy in my hands, i’m a bit surprised it would go this route but it looked interesting, so i figured ‘why not?’
i have taken to coloring books.
|i’ve jumped into the fray of ‘adult coloring books’ (not to be confused with coloring books for adults…) complete with colored pencils|
Who knew simple colored pencils could be so crazy expensive??
Anyhoo, i picked up a couple of coloring books, one of plants and animals, scenery type stuff, and one of mandalas.
|Mandalas, in case you’re dying to know, are intricate designs with LOTS of places to express your individual creativity|
i’ve done a few – so far it’s actually quite enjoyable. Curled up in front of the TV with an “oldies-but-goodies” music station dialed in, coloring book in my lap, pencils by my side, pretending the rest of the world doesn’t exist.
Only time will tell whether this will continue to relax me and whether or not i even keep doing it. Being prone as i am to giving up before finishing anything i’ve started…
