WIP #2 and Why I've Been AWOL...


Posting another WIP of Gracie wearing her first Halloween costume. Really should have taken more photos as I was going along, but got carried away playing with color and here we are!

About being AWOL: In a nutshell, health problems and unpleasant side effects from medication to resolve the health problems (what's the old adage about the cure being worse than the ailment? Bingo!). It's nothing life threatening, but does interfere with daily activities from time to time.

I'll be trying to catch up on my blog reading for the next few days. Because I live in a very rural area, high speed internet is not available (except for a couple of satellite providers whose set up and monthly fees are ridiculous) so I'm still on dial up (I hear and appreciate your groans of sympathy), so please be patient with me 'cos it takes forever for pages to load on turtle speed dial up. If I haven't visited your blog lately, know that I've missed reading your posts and I'm getting there as fast as I can! :-)

Just love Miss Gracie - she's just as cute as can be and she's coming along wonderfully!

Sorry to hear about the health issues - never pleasant when the cure is worse than the ailment!

Sorry about your health - hope it is improving by the time you read this.

This is coming along beautifully, Teresa--very charming.
I'm sorry to hear about your medication-induced health problems! There's actually a word for ailments caused by medication--I can't recall it--which shows you what a huge problem it is!
Very glad you're feeling better.

Sorry to hear that you have been ill. I hope you are on the road to recovery.

May I suggest a "hot toddy" made with that delicious honey you mentioned?

Teresa! I thought you'd gone on a roadtrip... I'm so sorry that you haven't been well. I don't know how you manage all the blogging activity you do with dial-up. Good to have you back and I love this painting - so cute and the colours are delicious!

What a wonderful work in progress! Can't wait to see the finished product

Hope your feeling better!

...and I can sympathize with the rural internet issues.

Teresa, glad you are back. I sympathize with your health, too. Not easy to deal with. This piece is so cute. Nice work. Dial up.... argh!!!

Rosie said...

Great to see you back, so sorry about your health problems, hope you are feeling a lot better now and from your on-going painting of Gracie it looks as if you are. Take care:)
