How the heck are ya? I'm glad you are here and safe. I have to say how heartbroken I am for those of you in Oklahoma. I could not believe my eyes as I watched the coverage of that horrible tornado in Moore. The complete devastation is more than I can imagine. Thank God more were not killed. I know this sounds kind of silly, but I kept thinking that if that happened to my house, I couldn't imagine trying to replace my craft room stuff! I also thought, with all the paper I have, at least the wreckage would be prettier than most!
Update on my situation. . .I have been diagnosed with "Frozen Shoulder". Not in one but in both shoulders. The good news is that once I recover, I can never have it again. The bad news is that it will take about a year for it to go away. And because I have diabetes and a heart condition, I can not have the drugs usually used to ease it. So that means I have to "man up" and just deal with it. Not a pleasant perspective for me. I have one pain medication that I can take, but it doesn't do that much and the side effect of nausea is almost worse than the pain.
Because of the above, I only made one card this week. . .
This is a Mo Manning image called "The Big Guy Grilling". I colored him with my colored pencils and oms. This is such a perfect image for Summer. I know it is still Spring, but Summer is just around the corner. I can say for sure that I won't miss these Spring storms.
PIC OF THE WEEK
This little guy was found making himself at home in my newly opened pool! I happened to look out of the breakfast room window and saw a black thing floating on top and then suddenly shoot to the bottom. So I got the skimmer pole and fished him out. Isn't he beautiful? His markings were so amazing and that fiery red color just stood out so brightly in the sun. He had his head pulled back so far in that shell, I think he will have a stiff neck for a week! LOL I, of course, released him and sent him on his way after the photo shoot.
OK, that's it for this post. Thanks once again for coming by to check on me. I hope you are all OK and doing well. Stay safe from this Spring storms. I'll be by to check on you soon!
