That is the word that best describes my past week. My spider bite is mending well and my leg is back to 98% of normal. My cold/virus/whatever is finally subsiding and losing it's powerful grip on my energy. I'm looking forward to a new week with renewed creativity.
This past week has been a rough one for me. I spent hours sitting in the sun, watching the birds, thinking of the projects I had no energy to attempt doing. I
fought battled the force of guilt that kept popping up telling me what I could or should be doing when what I obviously needed to do was just take it easy and allow myself to heal.
(Barb and I have become friends through the Internet and our mutual love of art. We've never met in person but hopefully will soon. I was also honored and privileged to review her book, Normal Doesn't Live Here Anymore. It's must reading for those of us facing aging parents and who may one day find ourselves in the situation of being a caregiver. I highly recommend this book!)
Since I'm so far behind on my blog reading, unknown to me, Barb blogged about my doll before she sent her to me! You can read all that Barb had to say HERE. My doll also has two sisters. You can see and read about them HERE and HERE. All of these "sisters" are spectacular, but how Barb knew to send me the exquisite bird themed doll is uncanny. Barb, like your friendship, I am grateful and will treasure you both forever.
And as we enter a new week, I'll continue my WIP. (Can you see the bird on the left of the face?)
And yet another bird appears in this WIP. Do you see it?
I hope you're enjoying the weekend, and I hope you're finding ways to express your own unique and creative nature.
