Feelin’ Fine

Thank God for the miracle of antibiotics. I felt better by Friday. I made it back to WW after a month of being snowed in, show stuff and car repairs. I was up 4 ounces – not bad. I also gave up on growing out my hair and went in to see Joseph and got it cut. Here is my latest I-book Photo-booth self portrait.  Oops, no earrings – naked ears!!


I said I wouldn’t post again until I had something creative to show. This afternoon, I started a piece titled “Somewhere, Over the Rainbow.” Here is a sneak peek. I have enjoyed doing some seed stitching with rainbow perle cotton.


Yesterday, we had a family birthday dinner for Mr C. He finished the painting of my office so that he could show it off. I still have some reorganizing to do, but here is a sneak peek. I really love the way the room is shaping up — so fresh and light and airy. It no longer feels like a dungeon.


M & M settled down to watch Myth Busters on the Discovery Channel.


We found out that two bull myths are false. They are not angered by the color red and they walked daintily through a china shop. Mia says the show should be called Myth Blowups!!

The Barnes family gifted Mr C with this beautiful succulent.


I made a delicious dinner of salmon roasted on a bed of potatoes, parsnips and peas and Mr C’s favorite — Carrot Cake.

Today was cold. We awoke to snow covering everything, but this afternoon, the sun came out. Maggie loves to sleep in the sun as it streams in the living room windows.


Finally, I just want to say that I am loving the changes that are coming from the Obama White House. What a difference. He has such a big job on his hands, but I think he is off to a great start. I took this photo on the TV when he was making his inaugural speech.

    We watched the same Myth “Blow-ups” too, and I was just amazed by the bulls in the china shop. So well behaved! Unlike the hosts of course….

    I love that stack of chairs….no wonder you took pix and saved them

    Spring must be in the air, despite that rodent who lives in the dark, because I too want to do ‘things’ TO my sewing area [can’t call it a studio until I move out of the bedroom]

    I like the new piece you’re working on–really like the little hand stitched areas. Someday I’m going to steal that idea. The wall color in your studio is beautiful. And glad you’re feeling better.

    I love that we live in the age of antibiotics. They cleared up my sinus infection, posthaste. Glad to hear you are recovering!

    Hey Gerrie, are those new glasses. Can’t remember but they look great with your new haircut.

    Maybe I should have taken antibiotics, but still struggling here. Glad to see you’re feeling better and back to creating.
