Wet carpets, strep throat and toothache...


It is funny (not really) when you have one of "those" days...when it rains if pours... Today my daughter wakes up with a fever and sore throat, my son has been up since 3 am with a really bad toothache and I know that the carpet cleaners are arriving at 9am. The husband is off to work and I guess I am supposed to be glad I am not working on Fridays (my official ME day).

Today was NOT a ME day.

Later and the strep has been tested positive, the toothache is due to teeth grinding at night and a mouth guard is needed (NO it is not covered by insurance). The carpet is dry in some areas and dinner is planned but not cooked... it is 6 pm and I forgot to eat breakfast this morning.

So instead of eating I took some pictures of my brand NEW birds. I painted these guys on wood that has been sanded, painted with gesso, oil pastels, pain stiks, gel stransfer.... a true MIXED MEDIA piece. I am not done just yet (I think) perhaps some melted wax would be nice...

The bottom has some vintage buttons from my Grandmothers "stash".
