The Monday after the weekend.
I am still sick with a head cold. I think I have more energy than I really do. I'm not doing any lifting and carrying of stuff today, just putting away all the stuff that Justin carried up to the studio, for me. He worked hard, I have a lot to do.
Riley stayed over night with her Daddy, at his place. It was very strange not to come downstairs and have my morning smile fest with her. I miss the pumpkin which combined with the head cold put me in a weird mood this morning.
I decided to bring about a change by posting some updated pictures of the studio. Actually, I'm going to post the link to the album and if you are interested you can go and see it. I dated the recent ones for you.
Michelle Remy, over at: http://lostcoastpost.blogspot.com/ has been continuing her Zetti quest. She got me thinking about the first time that Zetti Corkey, my alter ego appeared in my art work. I remember making the ATC back in 04' and at the time wondering why on earth I had written Corky did not want to be art, on the card. The figure is wearing glasses or goggles, his pointy had and a frame has been put over his head. You can see the original here:
I found a box with all my old ATCs in it. I was surprised at how many I did, that may have been following a theme, actually had a more personal meaning for me. By the end of 04' I was doing Soul Collage cards. I look back on my early ATCs and many of them can be moved right over to the Soul Collage pack of card. There is one, in that Zetti album I mentioned above that reads," It's cherishing every moment, It's being your own inspiration, It's a Life Lived Well."
Justin and family were down here for the weekend. Shari, after spending the week, as school nurse sending children home who were sick, ended up on my couch, sick, sick, sick. She was running a temperature and could barely move. I have since heard from her and the doctor told her she has H1N1 and gave her medications to take. Now, Mary says that she is feeling very achy and tired.
The kids on the other hand were in constant motion.
Hayden, Hunter and I made Hayden's Famous yesterday. Since the cans of biscuits had sat out on the counter for a while it was hard to pull the dough apart to make the triangles so we decided to make circles and make the usual filling but pull the other half of the circle over to make half moons. They were still a big hit. Hayden and Hunter learned a lesson is how to change the pattern. The world doesn't fall apart if you have half moon shapes or triangles. We just changed the name.
The Crazy Eight card game was played in the usual manner by the Neal men. Clean underwear was worn on the head. No, I have no idea how this tradition started. Perhaps it's a Scottish tradition, which would explain the "kilt" mystery.
We sent Justin and family off around 5:00PM only to greet Mary's friends, Alexis, James and their two children. Mary was cooking dinner for them. She invited us to join in but John and I decided that what my head cold really needed was pizza, beer and unlimited salad so we took off for Rocky's.
Update on Temporal Tapping
I did NOT chew on my fingers during the movie 2012. Normally, I probably would have. I did have some silliness going on with my cuticles so I had to change the positive message I was tapping to include the entire finger. I found myself, ONCE, last night, putting a finger in my mouth and IMMEDIATELY hearing a question in my mind, WHAT ARE YOU DOING? Now, I have to say that's a first. Honestly, the habit is so ingrained that I seldom even know or realize that I have bitten a nail. To have a THOUGHT that loud in my head. I whipped that finger out of my mouth like I had been caught stealing something from the general store. I will continue to tap and see where this goes. If any of you are trying it I would love to hear how your success is going.
I can hardly keep my eyes open and it's only mid morning. I think Murphy and I will take a little nap after I down some more Vit. C with Zinc. I do NOT want what Shari had or has. Be well everyone.
