Dancing out of May 2021

May was a weird month weather wise, anxiety wise and pain wise. You never really know what is going to happen, right?

The Numbers

In May I read a total of 6 books which makes the total of 2021 45 books read.
Of the 6 books 5 books were fantasy and 1 book was historical .
Out of the 31 days of May I read 13 days which amounted to a total of 2254 pages.

⌘ This was a weird month weather wise. It was a lot colder than last year and I was desperately craving some sun instead of all the rain we got. We finally got better weather in the last few days of May and start of June.

⌘ I signed up to do a market with In Line with Annemieke in July. It will be my very first market and I am both excited and anxious. I’ve been spending a lot of time on that. Preparing and making new items for it. Its been taking up a lot of time.

⌘ At the end of the month I got a birthmark removed from the inside of my elbow. Which is a shitty place. It hurt more afterwards than I anticipated so there was less happening here at the end of May and start of June. And on the last day of May I also got my second shot in the same arm so that was a whole lot of pain.

  1. Love your art, the colors are always so vibrant and pretty! I especially love the mermaid at the top of this post. Also, great news that you already got your second shot (though sorry it hurt.) Hope you’ll have a great June!

  2. Gelukkig was Castle er om voor een beetje afleiding te zorgen. Het is echt al lang geleden dat ik die serie gezien heb en ik ben niet zeker of ik ze ooit volledig heb uitgekeken. Ik ga hier volop meeduimen dat het super mooi weer is wanneer je met je creaties op de creatieve markt staat. Zelf heb ik ook heel erg uitgekeken naar beter weer. Die schommelingen veroorzaken immers nog meer pijnklachten en mei was echt een bizarre maand op dat vlak. Alsof de eerdere maartse buien en aprilse grillen nog niet voldoende waren geweest.
