Naturally Dreamy

A blog about my life as a mostly INFP living with an ESFJ, INTJ, and my pup. I blog about earth-friendly living and life through my eyes – not necessarily in that order. Come put your feet up where life is Naturally Dreamy!

Brr… it got cold this morning. I snuggled up with both the pets and enjoyed the cold and these drinks.

Realizing this:

My drawing is still terrible. After learning that I was an INFP, I decided to revisit my artistic (lack of) skills. Nope, still don’t got it. —>Redirecting energies…— I’ve read that not all INFP’s excel in the normal creative arts, that their energy is better directed at unique creative energies, for example… (the memory stops there.)

After I gave my best shot to draw a picture for my mom (that I was actually rather proud of), and then realized it looked – er – less than desirable after sharing it with my family, I remembered Phoebe.

These were horrible! But she couldn't see it. Hint taken :D

These were horrible! But she couldn’t see it.

I’ve never really enjoyed making, drawing, or coloring art, anyway. Doing it is fun, but the results are a letdown – for one reason – I HAVE to put it SOMEWHERE!

Goaling to do this:

Discover more classical music. Any ideas/suggestions? I listened to a song recently and realized there is a lot of classical and opera music I haven’t heard and therefore can’t know if I like it or not. There is a lot of classical music that causes my body to stress – a credit to the composer for being able to evoke such emotion through such a medium, but something I would rather not listen to! On the other hand… there is a lot of fun, terrific and beautiful classic music that I haven’t heard.

Came up with this:

…advice. It holds true for me so far. When you are “intuitively eating” and not sure if something is going to be helpful:

If your sugar is low, just eat it.

If you’re gassy, have a headache, or otherwise in bodily distress, think about it and make sure.

This has held true for me so far. I often am wondering if a food is going to help, and have discovered it isn’t worth waiting when my sugar is dropping – I almost always feel okay after eating it. Kind bar (with protein) to the rescue! (and banana and peanut butter 🙂 )

Regretting this: 

Having to really discipline SP. Being lax on him has let him think he can ignore me. I don’t like it, but I know being strict about him listening is important. The nice thing is that after one hard episode of discipline (usually a “timeout” which is a lay-stay in another room, or a brief show of domination) he is like, “OH! I forgot I wasn’t alpha dog”, and I don’t need to do anything further.

Of course, I am so lovey-dovey with him afterwards that if he were a lesser dog, he could go right back to being dominant. Instead he takes the hint and I can hug him all I want to without him thinking that it cancels the lesson out. Yeah, I am not a textbook discipliner.

Discovered this:

It wasn’t today, but it was noteworthy from this week. 😀 A family member and I thought it was awesome!

Q&A:

Am I the only one who gets shaky after a meal of eggs, (only)?

What is something that you thought you should be good at, but don’t think you are?

(mentioned earlier) Favorite classical/operatic pieces? / Do you have any classical or operatic pieces you love?

Have you watched Scott Pilgrim vs. the World? What did you think of it?

Mothers and Dads:

The Purely Twins have some mothering and dad-to-be questions, if you wanted to check it out.

  1. You may already know of these singers and musicians but I would suggest Celtic Woman or Sarah Brightman if you want to listen to or watch some awesome performances. Andrea Bocelli is another favorite of mine.

    The way you are with your dog is the way I am with my sons.

    I saw the movie Scott Pilgrim a couple of years ago and thought it was pretty good. I find Micheal Cera sort of endearing! A movie that I really love though is Napoleon Dynamite! I tried to get your FM2 to watch it one time. I know it may look corny but it is the sweetest, nerdiest and funny movie that I can watch over and over! There is a hilarious scene involving a pencil sketch that will make your own art seem like a masterpiece! I highly recommend!

    • Thanks for all the singer recommendations!! 🙂 I will check them out.
      Neat to hear about the similarity between you and your sons and me and SP.
      Thanks for the movie recommendation 🙂 Yes, I can see FM2 not wanting to watch it, but I am pretty sure FM1 will watch it with me. 🙂
