That word says it all... I am PREOCCUPIED.
The past 10 days have been absolutely crazy...first, Mom (91) fell and cut her head. Why? After 6 days in the hospital and an incredible number of tests, it was determined that she has crystals which shook loose in her ears (fixed, for the moment), that she has a virus in her blood stream, and that the arteries to her brain have narrowed, thus slowing the blood flow and causing dizziness. (This is the second time since April, that she has had extreme dizziness...first time, she had a mini stroke.) Surgery? Not at 91 yrs old! So now she is in nursing care, until she can learn to live with the dizziness....lots of commuting back and forth to her facility. It's an hour away...
This past weekend, my middle son, Music Guy, came home for a visit...the first in several months. Boy, do I love when he comes!!! I get to cook his favorite dishes (all contraband to my diet) and he always cleans up my computer for me. (All my boys could do this, but MG doesn't make fun of me when I ask "stupid" questions. He always tells me he is the "good son".) We had a wonderful time with him...and had a BBQ with all the guys and their ladies...and Drummer Boy did the cooking!!! (8 lbs of ribs, BBQ pork, beans, mac and cheese, cole slaw, fresh fruit, garlic bread) Lots of laughter...lots of food...lots of teasing...lots of LOVE.
Wine Guy and his lady, Jujie
Painting.... I am in "painting mode". Up until the dawn cracks (or is that noise my bones from sitting so long?) I am getting ready for the next Art House in early October, plus working on a couple of commissioned pieces. And I am working on the next two "creativity" presentations I will be doing in the next few weeks...
commissioned for Cindy's birthday...loves crabs, jewelry, and Chanel. The "diamond" ring shines with metallic gold and hints of sparkle, the rings are shiny gold, the bracelet is gold and "ruby" metallic, and the "pearls" are iridescent. It's a Crab with BLING...just like Cindy. :-)
36" x 36" Hibiscus...for my bedroom. Over the headboard.
So...I will not be posting much for awhile. But I will try to keep up with your beautiful posts.
I'll see you soon....
