Life is so interesting !
It feels like a bit of a blur with the months of preparation for our move . ( We are now living in a rental home while our actual home is gutted and renovated for this year . It should be completed by mid November .)
But once we had finally moved in the last box and unpacked all of it ( the rest being in our basement storage here) we took off for Mexico . I was going to write…” Yay !” but it wasn’t really a trip to shout in joy about. I proceeded to be attacked by the flu, then a brutal cough/cold, then Montezuma’s Revenge. The ‘all inclusive ” included construction sounds from morning to night and by the time I slipped in some water and fell on my right side I was certainly ready to fly home for some rest…ha ha.
Although we sat in the ‘baby section from hell’ ..ha ha again…we were home in 5 1/2 hours and ready to rest by getting back to work.
Then : I fell again. This time on some black ice off our our back porch. Oh man !
So I am learning to walk with crutches and my left knee and ankle are sprained.
But : the great news is that nothing is broken. I also had some incredible visits from old and new friends ….who brought me yummy meals and excellent conversations.
I have just been commissioned by a new connection to illustrate another children’s book and with my down time was able to start painting some sample artworks.
Lastly, I wrote a new song ! Working title : I Heard Your Voice.
I am healing. I have friends. I am able to create. I am blessed.
