Sideswiped…

Well, I was moving along great, eating better and exercising more, getting the blood pressure and weight back in check, when I got totally sideswiped by shingles. It smacked me in the right side of my head and the swelling in my lip was so bad my husband accused me of getting Botox-ed. This nasty virus is not conducive to being creative but I want to be! I’m still on the mend but I’m so thankful for an awesome doctor and science-based medicine and that is all I will say about that!

My Mister and I were enjoying a walk at Lake Murray not too long ago when he noticed this single cactus apple and of course it being February it looked to me like a heart, (the two halves that come together to make one). We were married shortly after Valentine’s Day many moons ago and so that is when we celebrate love’s special day but it seems I always get heart shaped fiber art ideas around this time of year. Not being 100% has caused me to refocus; some ideas just don’t work out when one isn’t feel all there. But here is a little February fiber art anyhow. Have a lovely month!

    I did wonder why you hadn’t been posting. I understand from my MIL that shingles is miserable. I hope you can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

      I feel better everyday. I would agree “miserable” and I was diagnosed pretty early on so it could have been much worse. Thank you, Joann. I look forward to reading your posts again, it looks like I missed a good few and I enjoy them so!
