Things have been a bit off kilter here lately so I apologize for unanswered emails and comments.
Days of sore throats and bad bad headaches, upset tummies and body shivers. We seem to be trading off, taking turns and not really having two days in a row of feeling good. Olivia and I were both yucky today but yesterday was decent. We spent time outside sitting on a blanket which we had so carefully placed on the prettiest bed of moss. And then to wake up today to a mild fever and more aches. Hmmm....I am close to a doctor visit and that is not a common thing for me to say. But hopefully (keeping my fingers crossed) this will all be soon behind us and we can move forward with everyone else into lovely Autumn.
Time in the art room has been limited of course but I did manage to finish up a few pieces started while at the beach. I haven't felt inspired since our return and though this saddens me a little I also remember other times like this and know it will pass. I have turned to reading books about "green" living and books about teaching art to children. I can't get enough of listening to Jack Johnson and coloring with Olivia. It is the simple things that bring the greatest joy, don't you think? Even when under the weather. :)
Have I mentioned lately how grateful I also am for you, dearest reader?
