I’ve made two and a half paintings this week. I have been feeling rather sick for the last week and a half. Last Sunday, I couldn’t even get out of bed. My vertigo has been acting up and when it does, I feel so out of control.
Anyway, I made a painting for my dear friend, Francine. It’s a beautiful woman, reaching for the light with red hair. Yes, Francine is a red head. She’s a beautiful person and I just saw a picture on the internet and I just had to paint it for her. Francine is alone in NYC. Her parents are both gone and we’ve just made such a strong connection with each other. She also has a Pomeranian, so, she’s a great person. LOL! Even though the distance is far, we connect on a deep level and I can’t imagine a better friend than her. She’s also an inventor and is now marketing her baby travel containers. I just adore her.
My second painting this week was of the Pittsburgh skyline. It needs one more thing added to it; but I am pretty satisfied with it. I’ve started a third by painting the entire canvas black and it now awaits it’s subject matter. Yesterday I was going to start on it; but my dizziness is making it hard to hold my head up, so it will have to wait.
Next Saturday is the craft show I signed up for to sell my jewelry creations. I’d asked a friend to look them over; but so far, hasn’t done so. <sigh> I don’t want to be a pest, so I’ll just go forth without knowing.
I have necklaces and bracelets and I just need to get some hooks for my display boards and I will be set. It is at one of the local high schools and is just 1/2 a day, so I should be okay. I’ve already gotten a table cloth and have added many tags and such to them at this point. I really hope all goes well. I also hope that I am feeling a bit better before this day comes. UGH! Sometimes I so hate my body and it’s betrayal.
Tomorrow, I go back to the ENT doctor. I am not looking forward to this at all. I know that I am still suffering from voice problems and I have no idea where this will lead me. The right side of my throat is throbbing today. I couldn’t even speak last night by the time I went to bed. I am really afraid that I have a serious problem with my voice box and I don’t want to lose it forever. Of course, I have a big voice, so it would be missed. LOL! I had a friend once who called me “Ethel Merman” all the time and when he did, I’d belt out a song in imitation of her. He’d always laugh.
Have I mentioned that patience isn’t one of my strong suites? LOL! Still “patiently” waiting on the Lord. Having to be patient with these test results. Got blood work done on the 31st and was able to look them up on Friday and was pleased that they reflected much better than 6 months ago. It was really hard to wait for the few days to see them; but I am extremely please with the results all the same.
Rooting for the Falcons today in the Super Bowl. I just can’t root for the Patriots, not since “Deflate Gate”. It was such a betrayal and I just can’t do it. So, the Falcons it is.
I remember when I was married and we used to have such great Super Bowl parties. I’d spend two days preparing food and getting the house ready for the game and we’d have such fun. Or I’d prepare food and we would go to the American Legion and party there all night. Such great fun. I even found my son’s Steeler’s jersey from way back when. It’s so tiny. Made me miss him being that small. Hard to believe he’s already 17. Time sure does fly.
You can never go back. So, onward and upward.
