also this past week, i read the last two books in the twilight series, eclipse and breaking dawn. the last book, breaking dawn, was my absolute favourite! to celebrate finishing all four books in the series, brad and i went to see the movie - twilight - at the cinema today. we both thought it was good and are already looking forward to the second movie. i felt that edward was portrayed as a little too serious in the movie compared to his character in the book where he displayed a good sense of humour. it was good to see that the movie did stick fairly close to the book.
i can hardly wait until i get my tattoo for my 50th birthday next month. i'm still deciding exactly what the subject of my tattoo will be but i'm leaning towards a wolf on my left ankle or an anklet design. i've always loved wolves and have felt a very strong connection to them but i'm having a hard time finding a tattoo of a wolf that i actually like. hmmmmmm..... i will be going with, beau, my son and it will a first time tattoo for both of us. my mum is cool with it but i know my dad isn't happy about the idea of his daughter getting a tattoo and, i guess, at my age...does it really matter? this past week, a male neighbour who didn't know i was planning on getting a tattoo spoke rather negatively about women having tattoos....that's when i told him i was getting one. he changed his tune and it felt good to stand upright in defiance of his judgements.....which leads me to my choice of mantra for this week. i AM unique and happy in my own skin. it's taken me a long time to finally get that. i used to be the type of person who would worry about what other people thought but, through my spiritual path, i see that it matters not what others think. i'm entitled to be the me that i am....and, if people don't like it.....TOUGH!
also, this past week, i have managed to prep a few canvasses ready for my paintbrushes to work their magic....i sure hope my muse is cooperative when it comes to actually painting designs on them ~
