I came home from work at lunch time with a nasty, nasty, sick headache.  I've had it for about 4 days now and I want it to go away.  Borderline migraine and painful!

I think I'm going to have to cut back on my internet time.  I'm spending waaaay too much time on-line looking at everyone's fabulous art and I'm getting nothing done!  I have two pages to finish in one journal and then 3 more journals waiting in the wings so I need to "git 'er done"!

DD is having some health issues, nothing too serious we hope. She has tentively disagnosed with psoriatic arthritis.  She went for blood tests to determine which type she has and they discovered that she has pernicious anemia.  Back in the day, that type of anemia killed you.  It's caused by an inability of the body to absorb B12. She had her blood tests on Friday morning and first thing Monday morning the doctor's office called to tell her the doc wanted to see her right away.  She went in and he explained what's going on and gave her a B12 shot.  She'll have to go back every week for the next month or so.  Somewhere during that month, the doc will re-run blood tests to see if this issue is temporary or whether she'll have to get shots for the rest of her life.  Kind of scary, however I have every confidence that this is not going to be a big issue.  This is me keeping my fingers crossed!

Anyway enough about illness.  Here's one of my journal pages.

Very quick update

  • I've finally finished a couple of pages in my journal partner's journal  and I plan to send it off tomorrow. I had planned to send via expresspost, however I've had it way too long now so I'll send it off instead of keeping it until I finish working in my journal.  Heather has been soooooo patient so I can't keep her waiting any longer
(Not sure why I have a bullet up there, but I'm tired of putzing around trying to delete it so I just ignore it )

Last Thursday and Friday, I received 3 journals from a travelling journal swap I'm in.  I hope to work on some of them this weekend and then get them off asap - I know the others are getting impatient.

I also need to come up with some designs for the shops for this Christmas season.  I really need to get at that as the Open House will be in October some time and I'll need to have all the stock delivered well in advance.

On the home front,  I finally managed to get some housework done.  The scary part is that I really didn't realize how dirty my windows and such.  Really quite disturbing!  I hope to make some time in this next 3 day weekend to do some more cleaning.  Boring I know but it needs to be done!

Well, that's about it for me.  I will upload some pix of my latest work sometime over the next few days.  Caio!
