i found out my hearing aid was covered for loss and i only have the deductible to meet. so all was rosy them came saturday stupid. Stuck my finger in my handheld blender. and blade proved it was sarp. 2 hours, a record, in the ER , several shots of Lidocaine , a pain killer and an antibiotic I was home. bandaging is no longer taught!
Monday went to hospital ER outpost and a female nurse, knew her stuff. An angel called Teresa cleaned and bandaged it, explaining every step along the way. Advised i see hand specialist. Chris called his doctor about getting his stitches out and they will see me. this week I managed almost daily Fauxbonichi Journal entries. It is hard to take a photo with finger in splint i plan to check out everyone's work space while in the doctor's waiting room.
On Sunday I lost my left hearing aid when i went out to the grocery store HEB. It's absence noted when I had put away the groceries and was seated at the PC. Horros... one it was missing and 20 I had not noticed it immediately. I hurried back and search the parking lot and the store. it is 12mm deep, 25mm high and 6mm wide.
Replacing it will cost a small fortune. I thought it could never fall out .
Last week was very tiring as I drove twice to San Antonio about 75 miles each way. Wednesday for my Dexa, my count was up in spine by 14%. At this rate it will take me about 30 years to replace my bones! The cost would wipe me out before that. On Thursday Chris had carpal tunnel, thank you everyone for the well wishes. The prep for the surgery was far longer than the surger, 15 minutes. The wait was 4 hours. Why they cannot book you in when they can accommodate you is beyond me or at least say we are running late. This little private clinic did 43 surgeries that day of "minor" bone problems and injuries. Chris is fine. On Sunday I replaced bandages with Bandaids (plasters). He is doing fine.
On my desk are the journals I started a week ago,Fauxbonichi Journal a project of Felicity Smith on Facebook. She has a lot of rules that I like and it is fun and easy . She removes the nutters and seems to get a lot of slack for it.
This stands for National November Journaling Month
Amazing whenever I decide to clean up my workspace I am overcome by tiredness. Today is no exception . My day was spent messing up the page for The Documented Life Journal. I need to start with a background. using glue dots(Zots) is a skill I must learn. journals I think are not a final product but a learning of processes. My workspace today. My DLJ the challenge was to use a tea bag but it is not visible on the left page. i copied an old drawing that was done with ink on cellophane onto the tea bag. This was after attempting to print on tissue paper. it just would not work and the glue ruined the image.
these techniques take a lot of practise. I had a class on this about 10 years ago and found some images from there. These below were from there but the red is a print on a transparency
This page was not planned the upper right is a print on fabric and below is my copy of the original drawing called gaggy on the rocks. The woman is my adopted mother and the photo is from 1925, the original drawing about 1912.
Well time to make dinner. Tomorrow i head for doctors appointment in San Antonio for my annual osteoporosis check. Then thursday back to take my sweetie for OP surgery, carpal tunnel. The weather forcast is for scattered thunderstorms. I am trying to plan what i want to sign up for next year. Wanderlust 2016 looks interesting. I spent time this morning investigating planners and decided I do not need one for daily journaling as they are all too complex. Planners have pages for plans of plans and organizing your plans plans and...... stickers galore, tabs for tabs and oh so much. ( check this inkwellpress.com). No wonder i am tired! have a great week everyone making your art.
