I sketched and painted today with watercolour pencils.

The fog still hasn't lifted, it's nearly half two now, so the sky is still pale grey with a hint of yellow.
It's making me sleepy and I long to curl up in a little cosy ball and hibernate for a little while.

It's an interesting thought that warrants extra time.
I finished my morning pages with another haiku.
