I was feeling a little down, so I headed over to The Escape Plan and looked through the challenges for something that would brighten my mood.
Being the somewhat-orderly person I am, I decided to stick with the numbered progression of the challenges and settled on #3: Says You – Do something that is typically seen as inappropriate for someone of your age.
So I decided to colour.
The last time I coloured was on US election night in November. I came across an electoral college map created especially for colouring while election results pile up. It added a fun twist to the night and helped pass the time while the commentators blathered on and on.
After browsing a few pages, I went to Crayola’s website and downloaded a Saskatchewan colouring page. I could have downloaded a picture of Kim Campbell to colour, but the pictures of Canadian Prime Ministers weren’t terribly challenging (NOTE: There’s no picture of Stephen Harper to colour, but there is one of Barack Obama under the US Presidents. Hee!).
I turned on the TV and watched ‘Lie to Me’ while I coloured. Tomorrow I’m going to head out and buy some new pencil crayons, as most of mine are no longer pencils but stubs.
I forgot how relaxing it is to colour. Mental note: do this more often.
