I've been trying to convince myself to write a blog. I have been keeping a journal since the 1st of the year but somehow blogging just hasn't happened for me in a while.
It is very cold here in Michigan and school was delayed for two hours this morning. Personally I think they should have cancelled it since when I came home the wind chill was -24. But they won't because of all the days we have already missed due to bad weather. We have had our fair share. I think this is the worse winter that I have seen in a while. I finally turned the heat on in my apartment and even have a small heater running and it is still cold in here. All I really want to do is lay on the sofa with a blanket.
My knee is much better. My new year's resolution was to quit using my cane and I have been successful. I still don't have the range of motion that I should and wonder if I will ever get it now. I see the surgeon for my six month check on February 6. He will be proud that I am walking so well but not so proud of how I can't bend my leg...makes putting on socks and shoes very difficult...and forget about cutting toenails...I will be getting pedicures from now on I guess.
For those who aren't on facebook with me...I have gone back to my painting. I decided to try to get enough paintings done and to try to have an art showing of my work. I need to start searching for a place to do this. So far I have four paintingd done and am working on the fifth.
Here is the one I posted on facebook....
This was just before I finished it....I added some land above the water...rounded the first zebra's body and straightened out some of the stripes. Now I need to get it matted and framed....where I have some extra cash. The next painting is an acrylic....easier to frame than a pastel. All the painting in this collection will be of animals.
So between being a Grandma at school, painting...and the occasional trip to the casino that is about all I have been doing. (Oh, and trying to stay warm.) Have a great weekend!
