Thursday This and That with Some Whine

Today was a special day because Mr C was born on this day. He is my rock; he is a great dad and a super grandpa.


Today, he took a break from the painting of my office, and we took off for an art date at the Portland Art Museum and dinner at one of Portland’s finest dining establishments — Higgins.

I have been extremely slothful. I finally gave in and called the doc this morning. I started on Azithromycin tonight. I just couldn’t shake the sinus thing with my holistic treatments. I am getting so behind creatively. I signed up for Laura’s Idea to Image class and I haven’t done a single assignment. I need to get a chair themed 12 X 12 piece done, I have to prepare for a class I am teaching next Saturday, I need to finish the Fiber Arts for a Cause piece, and so on and so on.

Enough whining. I still have some Yes We Did stickers. e-mail me your snail mail at gerrie at gericondesigns.com if you would like one.

I will be back when I have something creative to share.

    I went to Higgens a long time ago with my favorite prof at PSU. It was very good, as I recall.
    Get well soon!

    Happy Birthday to Mr. C! The Azithromycin did the trick for me; finished last Friday. Hope you find relief soon.

    Happy Birthday Mr C! Maybe a walk along the beach in the nice salt air would help the sinuses? Hope you are feeling better, and I am with Judy on the resting. Take care.

    Belated happies to Steve, and I hope you shake the sinus thing SOON.

  6. This is a special day since Mr. C. was born on this date. Happy birthday to him.
    I’m sure you will soon be feeling good.

    Happy B’day wishes to Mr C!

    Hope the drugs do the trick. Personally, I think you’ve really knocked yourself out lately with your show, the holidays, etc. You just need to lay low and take it easy!

    happy Birthday to your Mr C. You’ll get your strength and your energy back. I am also in Laura’s class and seeing how quickly you can work, I am confident that you will be able to get the assignments done and get caught up with the group. I doubt that you are the only one who is behind. rest and get well.

    Hi Gerrie,
    Hope you’re feeling more energetic real soon.
    Say, is Tribeca still in Portland? I had one of the best meals of my life there about 15 years ago.
    And I almost moved to Portland three years ago — glad I stayed in Humboldt, but I love Portland.
    All the best, Connie
