On this Monday I am grateful for the miracles of medicine...and a doctor whose medicinal intuition is bordering telepathy...or psychic...or something.
I've been battling some kind of a "bug" for over three weeks now...(thus the slowing of my blog posts) The first week I thought it was allergies...the second was thinking:head cold, the third, pondering if perhaps it could be a sinus infection or???? Dear Doctor told me my sinuses and bronchial tubes were constricted and inflamed...not quite an infection and not quite bronchitis...but definitely good that I came in when I did...a prescription and a few blood tests later, I'm on my way. I've been sleepless for these 3 weeks (in addition to my usual "Aunt Beulah" nocturnal evenings) and so have been uninspired, unproductive, and unlikely to do ANYTHING but sit on the couch doing my best impression of broccoli. It's no fun being sick, you know?
Meanwhile, I've been soothing myself with the soulful sounds of the Mamas and the Papas...go figure. Perhaps it's the raging fever...regardless, their music is way cool, don't you think?
Finally feeling well enough to begin thinking about all the swaps I have committed to, I began assembling my Christmas goods...I tried my hand at making a little Christmas card from one of the many vintage cards I have...the colors and the sweet little images of this one were so adorable, I just had to find coordinating papers and trims! The sentiment inside reads, "Such a big miracle in such a small child."
I drew, cut out and covered 5 mitten-shaped pieces of chipboard...these will become an old "timey" Christmas banner...
More soon! Blessings all!
