Hello everyone.  This is not a good year for me and i am beginning to feel like a collector of hard to diagnose ailments/diseases.  All this has hindered my writing on this blog and in creating anything.  The incentive is there now and again but the red itchy eyes and general sense of YUK has not been conducive to anything.  Yesterday I went to the emergency room as the neurologist is out of town.

 Small town hospitals is not too busy on Monday morning!!!!
 A lovely young woman doctor re-did the medication and finally I have confronted my diagnosis.  I have early stage Myasthenia Gravis.  I have gone from a drooping eyelid to problems swallowing etc etc.  As the doctor said to me you sure seem to be collecting hard to diagnose medical conditions! ( on hearing of Meniere's Disease in my portfolio)

 So here is my desk.  Next week between leaving for Galveston and medical test for all the other stuff I plan to clean up. I will try to return.
 Reading everyone's post was truly up…

#487 WOYWW

Since Friday June 13 I have had a hell of a time, from cat hair wrapped around eyeball to eye allergies, ear popping patch on eardrum and inviting infections in to a multitude of tests that showed I have Myasthenia gravis, whatever they are called in my blood (but not in my muscles) and this means reactions to all kind of drugs and finally to ear surgery to replace my ear drum.  This is 4-6 weeks before they know if it works or not and then here we go again.  Of all this by far the worst are th eye allergies as my eye itch and leak ( this was the worst year ever for mold about 15,000, usually high is 1000) and until last week so did my nose.  It was like the Fountain of Doom.  Doom is now controlled and hopefully by friday my eyes.  Not much creativity in all of this. 
Ms kitty loves playing with grapes.

My desklooks like i feel spacey and blah.  
My one "time filler" was  Setting up a family tree after getting the name of my father from family.  As soon as eye…

Week 484 Missing in art

It is several weeks since I posted.  Since mid July I have had constant hearing problems related to a hole in my right ear drum.  next Monday I undergo surgery to fix the hole and hopefully restore my hearing to a level that with hearing aids i will hear.  In between I picked up another disease that only becomes a problem if I take certain drugs.  Most of which are the ones that would really have helped my ear problems.  Life is never simple.  In between i sort solace in creating in my Life Documented art journals and wanderlust.  All the creations are crappy but at least I escaped.
Looking forwards to next week or the week after, life just may respond to modern medicine.

In between I had a birthday and this is what a friend sent me Harbor Maine Chocolates
Lots of summer themes and mine was so dismal I found women, old women who were enjoying life.

I was inspired by a class with Marieke!

We had a week on the bay but it was SO hot day and night it was miserable and the cats would go b…

There really is nothing on my desk. I have had a hell of a month starting with cat hair wrapped around eyeball and now ear drum erupting.  SO instead of a day with fiber and paint it is back to doctor
and ?????

Well yesterday was not good and with drops for 7 days and then a shot to the ear it is wait and hear?


Busy day and achieving nothing .  Working on Life Documented  and Wanderlust.  Catching up with icad but as soon as I do it's the next day!!!!
my work desk today

computer desks
Binder covers first coat after gesso. 
Calendar pages for week 26

As fast as i clear up I start another project.  It is so hot that the acrylic paint is drying as I put it down.  Cats are clapped out in hallway I hope.  Xochitl was given a new collar today and Chris just found it, outside.

After 5 weeks in the shop and them doing nothing Chris had his usual repair shop take it from the dealership.  A friend lent him a truck when he went on vacation.  When he uses my car I have to remember to change the seat, the mirrors, the radio, the AC and so on.  The repair shop it is in will not be able to look at it until after July 4.

Time for a cider wish it would rain.  NO CHANCE

I am wondering what I can do to remember to post this so I can visit .
See you tomorrow.

I will try to visit tomorrow

WOYWW last week of June 2018

Well I am so sorry I missed the past few weeks but Tuesday medical appointments in San Antonio wipe me out.  In doctors waiting rooms reread  Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan and now on book 3 of his hilariously funny trilogy. Last week I presented CRA to my book club .  The best laugh in a long time and not just because the wine flowed very freely.

 My time is spent with the icad 2018(#xmk211) project that lead to finally conquering Google Photos posting.  Wanderlust has seen me create more messes than ever and as Jack of all trades nothing is done very well.  The sad part is that my enjoyment of these activities is a definite hindrance to learning to paint in any mode correctly as course like Wanderlust have many luring classes. 

Here is my desk.

The watercolor is for Wanderlust and is the Texas version of a meadow! Most of it is Big Sky one of the best features of summer in Texas is at the end of a blistering day (in high 90s F  for 10 days) is spectacular sunsets and clouds.  Oh y…
