(I wish I could wake up to breakfast in
that spectacular room (free room) tomorrow.
Alas -- back home now. Working.)
Since I got home from beautiful Nova Scotia I have had a very
bad cold. I know who gave it to me. My sweet husband. But
he is better and mine is getting worse. Since yesterday I've
had laryngitis on top of the sniffles and coughing. And I say
enough already. Because I didn't mind the cold, but not being
able to talk or get my voice to work -- that's not natural for me.
Add to this the fact that they're tearing up my street to
make new sidewalks and the noise begins in earnest at
7:30 a.m. and you have a formula for missing my school house
and acre of land -- birdsong, peace and quiet almost too
much. But on the flip side, when I'm better I'll appreciate
my friends and family here, the buzz, the wonderful park
near me, the trees and yes, my studio. I was in there
today to finish this little watercolour of our breakfast table
at the hotel in Quebec City last week. Meanwhile I'm
working on painting, but have limited energy for blogging.
I hope you know that I love your work.
Have a happy-to-be-healthy day.
