Today finds me totally unfocused and lacking a sense of purpose. Just one of those days but annoying as we have to start organizing our trip as we leave Sunday. At least my hair appointment is booked.
This week i started a little class at the Derwent Academy online; just simple drawing of principles and things I know little about. No that is not a croissant at the top, it is a shell!
have to show this desk as it is almost tidy. If anyone wants to send me some OC or anal traits I need them. I just end up shuffling bits and bobs around the table. My new water bottle is always there. I just sorted out my business card index and trew out my past!
Desk below I have doodled around adding to my No Excuses journal and practicing Whimsical Lettering. On the left is this weeks Prompt for Journal 52. Really like this project as it is an opportunity to use whatever medium speaks to me.
Playing around with the settings on the Samsung smart phone. It is a topic that intrigues me as some things have size restrictions on sending them to sites. it seems skewed logic sites want low pixels and phone/cameras keeping upping pixels. Great if you print, not for sending off into cyber space.
last week there were several questions about my Menieres and the hearing aid. Menieres army of persecution move in with me some 30 years ago . Over the years I have controlled the vertigo with Serc a drug not easy to obtain in the USA, as it is not FDA approved. It maybe produced by something they called a compounding pharmacy, at twice the price it costs in Canada or Mexico. It means getting an Rx and buying from Canada Pharmacy. it also seems to control nystagmus, eye movements, and nothing works on tinnitus. The worst is vertigo (the dizzies) now controlled I am finally trying to hear better. The hearing aid is a Phonak, I think its an Audeo Q. I continue to use the loaner from the clinic as the audiologist wants to be sure i am comfortable with it before forking over an arm and a leg!. So will continue for the next month to assess . It is hard to believe that i can hear. The tiny behind ear device controls background noise and tinnitus.
The physical therapy for my balance or lack of balance is going along fine. It leaves me tired; hard to believe but is as if my sensory system is worn out. The equivalent of running a mile for ears!!
It is truly summer here in Texas 97F (36C) today, cloudy so the humidity makes it feel much hotter. With the world in turmoil I feel ready to hide away in my hill top home and bury myself it art crafts and Pinterest.
have a fab week, plan to visit as many of you as possible tomorrow. it is so incredible to meet everybody and share passions and lives.
