Nest Feathers and Twine - Formally Artist's Block Studio

The things that make a house a home and the stuff that holds is all together.

Years ago I started this blog with a mindset and goals that I have found have changed direction over time. I am excited to say that this blog has a new name.....Nest Feathers and Twine. I hope you come by and visit often. Feel free to get comfortable and kick off your shoes and join me on this journey of metamorphosis.

well, i was going to upload photos from my camera, and realized that i do not have the hardware installed on my studio computer so this will have to do! i am going to have to ask my really really good friend will to help me out!

so everytime i am ready to go and get back in the swing of things a little bit of life happens! last week i had allergies and a sinus infection.... i had 1 day of feeling like i was getting better, last thursday and then whap i got max's respiratatory crud! 2 weeks of feeling like my eyeballs were going to explode and my brains were going to eek out, runny nose.....i am now sporting a red fuzzy looking nose, you know the dry flakey skin from blowing your nose tooooooo much! and my favorite......coughing so hard that your eyes water and bulge out of your head like some freaky cheezy horror flick, you almost pee your pants, and you make that horrid sound like you are going to heave up last weeks dinner, and you feel like you are going to! and of course this only happens when you are talking to someone, not when you are in the privacy of your own home minding your own business! and if all of that was not bad enough, once the repiratory crud started to hit, the same day cramps, pms AND a hot flash from hell as i was trying to get ready to go to a meeting! ya gotta love it! i had to run from my bathroom to my daughters bedroom and stand in front of the fan until the i could quit sweating long enough to apply another coat of makeup! i could not get my hair to dry........ yes, i am in hormone hell right now, zits and wrinkles, pms and hot flashes............

so last night i am sitting in the bathroom swishing another dose of listerine in my mouth and i look over and see the clorox disinfecting wipes on my bathroom sink, and it says KILLS FLU GERMS! and i think to myself.....hmmmmmmm if i shove one up each nosehole maybe i would feel better by morning.........that is fever and sleep deprivation talking.......ok, ok, and i admit, a bit a just flakey blonde-ness talking too! i was brought back to reality before i could give this a try by max, who told me through the bathroom door he had a 102 fever. oh good grief! he has already missed school for a migraine, and twice for this stupid respiratory flu stuff, he only has 2 days until cycle break.....why now..... he says his stomach is hurting and he has a fever! blaaaaahhhhhh! i am going to scream........well, i step out of the bathroom and look at the thermometer and sure enough it says 102, and yes earlier his stomach was bothering him.......but that mom sensor goes off, something is just not right....... and so i feel his forehead and he is cold and clammy? the built in to the lips and hand mommymeter is always withing 1/2 of a degree accurate, so i am puzzled? i ask him the standard tummy issue questions.....and the wheels are s l o w l y turning, and i keep feeling his forehead, and i ask if he thinks he should get a puke bucket.....momma does not do puke...........and he says no and i shove the thermometer under my arm like he did to check the accuracy of the that will help because i, too, am running a fever! oh, you dork. then everything clicks and i knew i had caught him at something and he knew he had been caught! he starts giggling and informs me that he rubbed the thermometer on the bed until the temp went up, only the first time he got it to 106, and he figured he should back it off a bit if i was going to believe it!

so life is marching on! now that i am starting to feel human again, i can start back up getting ready for some pretty exciting stuff.......and art. i feel the need to be artful, and artful i shall be....because, yikes...i just remembered i have my 4x4's to do for redlead! eek! it is to be on our favorite color........oh, do i have to pick just one? maybe tomorrow i will have one done to post..... Posted by Picasa
