about the artist


I had already decided on a title for the posting today when this greeted me at breakfast. Bingo! My sentiments exactly…


I finished my last antibiotic on Wednesday and by Sunday, I could tell that the infection in that one clogged sinus had not disappeared. On Monday I talked to the doc and we decided to do another ten days of meds rather than look at surgery, yet. On Monday night I had a sore throat that kept me awake most of the night. I slept in on Tuesday and wondered if I had gotten strep throat from Mia. But, no it is just a pesky virus. I dragged myself off to vestry last night because we had an important meeting. Today, I just feel bleah!!

But I must get on with things. I have to mail Warhol Sunsets to Cynthia Morgan in Boulder, CO. I took part in the Quiltart quilt swap. I am getting Out of Africa, made by Rhonda Blasingame. I’ll post a pic when it gets here. You can go here to see all  of the quilts and who made them and who they are going to.

I managed to get some quilting done on the Aspen piece from Sue Benner’s class.  I started with the reflection of the trees in the water .


Finally, I promised DebR that I would post that silly something that I can’t live without. Here it is:


My Sony Walkman that resides under my pillow. My mind often will not stop racing when I go to bed or I often wake up in the night and can’t go back to sleep so I keep my Walkman handy and listen to NPR or soothing music.

The sun has come out. Maggie is staring at me. Gotta take her for walk and wake up my body. Time to get dressed and face the world.

    I need NPR on my Sony Walkman to sleep too! Glad I’m not the only one. I hope you feel better soon.

    ick, sinus infections, ICK! So much sympathy, they are really horid things. Once I moved away from Canberra, my sinus infections virtually stopped..

    Love the one silly thing – what a teeny walkman!

    I know exactly what you are going thru – I went thru major sinus infections in 2003 and early 2004. I went thru all kinds of medications, until I couldn’t take anymore…….what worked? I stopped eating wheat.
    Haven’t had a sinus infection since last June!
    And, Gerry – I sleep with my radio on low (don’t have a walkman) – after 11pm there is classical and soothing music to put me to sleep with my mind going crazy…….
    OK too much……..sorry!
