The good news . . . this isn't going into infection. The bad news: still have a horrible cough but it's finally beginning to break up congestion in my lung. It's also giving me a headache and dizziness, Oh well. Played around a little off and on and made some crazy abstract and fractal eggs - yours if you can do something with them. All pngs so just right click and save.

the doorbell rang and was followed by a series of knocks. Norfolk police at door. Someone broke into my husband's truck and stole . . . wait for it . . . a $25 trickle charger for battery. Ripped the wire out. Just wait until they get home and figure out it's not an iPad or Kindle or whatever they thought it was. Had started coughing again just before that so I needed to get up and take my meds again anyway. Yep, sick again. We took some vacation days the week of 3/10 and went to NC. First couple days temps were in 70's then the night before we were to start home, temps dropped 40 degrees and it began to snow. Drove in snow until east of Asheville. Hubby had started coughing on way home and it seemed he had a bad cold coming on. By the time we reached home, it was clearly some flu he'd picked up. At first, I thought I'd be lucky because I'd had my flu shot and he hadn't. Seems I was wrong. He made it to work this past Monday, even while feeling a little rough. I went thru the "just a cold" stage and by Friday was in respiratory trouble, wheezing and miserable. Managed to stay awake and watch the VCU Rams (my aluma mater) lose to a lesser ranked team in the final moments of it's game. I feel bad for the poor freshman everyone wants to blame for the loss. We were all rookies at some time! Trying hard to keep from going into bronchitis again. Living on nasty Nitequil, lots of fluids, inhalor, and trying to eat a little something every time hubby prompts me. This too shall pass. Something free soon - really!

And may the luck of the Irish be with you. I'm proud of my Irish heritage even though it's a bit less than half. My mother's side (and her the picture of an Irish colleen with strawberry blonde hair, hazel eyes, and milky complexion when young and still lovely with her silver hair when she died in her 70's)was mostly Irish with her maternal grandfather a Welsh miner, who came to America, and some Scottish mixed in somewhere. English on my father's side all the way back to Jamestown, VA colony. So much for my history lesson lol. I've made you a quickpage with my Shamrock Season kit seen here: http://digistyledesigns.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1_208&products_id=9090 http://www.4shared.com/zip/z4pRql3Vce/ws_stpats2014.html? Dont' forget to wear your green!

this month to continue working on back issue and also do some creative play. Winter has been hard and I really need a change - of scenery, creative venue, yada, yada. Have been doing some experimenting with collage type papers. This is my very first so be understanding, okay? You may use it any way you want. http://www.4shared.com/zip/p_Abt1Sqba/ws_collagepaper.html? Back at work on one of my novels as well as experimenting graphically and trying to catch up on housework I couldn't get done while in PT. Will be off and on this month. But will try to get more freebies up. Hugs!

PT was killer last week and I'm about through with it. ready to go back to doing my aqua therapy stuff. Doing some graphic experiments when I can be at PC and have gone back to doing some writing. This is a quick little exercise I did, just running with a phrase you often hear, "Here's the thing."
