Down for the Count

I have been so sick these past few weeks. I thought it was a cold, but it just kept getting worse and worse until I finally went in to the doctor, who gave me some medicine, and now I am slowly coming back to life. Gads I hate codeine-laced cough syrup!

Normally I am a rock. I'm the one who takes care of the ones who get sick. This one knocked me down for the count. I am SO glad to finally be able to draw a breath without gasping for air. Needless to say, it has been a long 2 weeks.

Today I feel almost human again. I actually had enough energy (and lung capacity!) to get up and play with the last details on my Dingle Baby sculpt. I don't have photos yet as the glue is still drying, but you can be sure I will post them tomorrow. It was so much fun to play again!!

In the meantime...




...we have a snow day here in Oregon. I know it isn't very much (especially compared to what I have seen has fallen in the midwest - oh my!) but we don't get very much here on the floor of the Willamette Valley, so when we do, things pretty much grind to a halt. The kids are happy though -- their Christmas vacation has begun early!

Good to know your feeling better and yes we certainly did get dumped on with snow and more to come but your photos are very pretty anyway even if it is of snow!!

I am so glad you are feeling better! Hopefully you will be completely well and 100% by Christmas.
