I have good intentions of blogging every day, but I just have not felt like it much. The main reason is that I have not been as involved as usual. John and I had a rough first 6 months of this year with two surgeries each and for me a number of bad reactions to everyday medications. It has not been fun. It also has not been life threatening or terminal or any of those things, but it has taken it's toll on our energy levels nonetheless.
I can hear many of you saying "get thyself to thy art room and do some art therapy". I know. I know. I just have not felt much like it. And you know that the longer you stay away from your art supplies, the more difficult it is to get back into the groove. My friend and former employee, Aimee, is coming over this week for a play date. I have high hopes that she will help me out of the art doldrums.
BUT...here is what makes me smile today.
John had to buy a new car to replace his very used old car. He bought a Toyota (actually made in the USA) hybrid and is obsessed with keeping track of the milage. He is getting 40 mpg!
My etsy shop is alive and busy. Our antique mall room is doing okay. Thank you so much.
My grandkids all love to read.
My garden is blooming.
I watched "Letters From Juliette" last night. I love that movie.
There are many things to smile about every day especially since I share my days with John.
