Slowing down …
Yeah, sure … Umm, kinda
WWU: The full moon did not disappoint this weekend. It was flippin’ craziness everywhere (And, I don’t mean [non-PC] behavioral medicine craziness. I mean full-moon nuttiness all the way around!): Arguments with law enforcement; bizarre complaints; insane volume in our ‘lil country club ER; combined with crazy computer issues. But … we survived, and everyone that requested it (i.e. didn’t walk out of the ER) got good care.
Moving on … The art shows are over – for now, anyway. I had a good time at the (judged) LFAA show. And – I received ‘honorable mention’ for a couple of my pieces! (This really means a lot to me – in an environment dominated by PAINTING artists and judged by an oil-paint-expert. But, more importantly – I had fun, and my ‘stuff’ was well received.) I also bought a couple of things … art note-cards. I love the colors and fun of this little watercolor turtle; and the “SARCASTIC ME” was totally drawn to this card … The inside message has gotta be something along the line of “Thinking of you …”
So, now I’m back in my studio – which has been cleaned!!! I’m moving some cabs forward:
Fortunately, after prepping for the shows, I’m all set with ornaments for this holiday season. But, I am working on a few Christmas-themed platters and plates. Here’s a rough version of a Santa platter I’m working on.
My Tree of Life pieces were well received at both art shows. So, I think I’ll look into specialty packing boxes for them (shipping) and make a few more. And, I’ll spend some time photographing my new pieces for the shops ,,, always my favorite activity (NOT)!!
I met with ‘the girls’ (childhood friends) last week. All is ‘good’ (if not down-right awesome) in our worlds. Having said that … (AKA meanwhile, in my world -) both twins are getting their wisdom teeth pulled later this week. Prayers for us all, as DH and I watch over our ‘patients’ …
In the meantime, I’m moving towards the next hurdle of living a smoke-free life (= a whole month). While I may be eating ANYTHING that isn’t nailed down, no one has died – or even been seriously injured. So, still successful … RIGHT?!?
Our canine crew (including pups) are doing great. The babies will be/are 6 wks old, and so much fun to play with now (is she NOT just TOO CUTE???) … But, we’re upsetting our Moms at the moment, because we are removing them from their babies (so that Moms can start getting back to pre-pregnant weights [as pups are eating solid foods] and babies can start their immunization schedule). It HAS to happen, and it’s a short-lived hormonal nuttiness stage on behalf of the Moms ,,,
My ‘lil medical condition remains stable – giving me time to figure out what the next step should be. So, sss’all good! Yep, slowing down … Can’t you tell?
