Today’s post will be short. I have had to take some antibiotics for some things going on and they really are doing a number on me. I started them on Monday and need to be on them for a week, and I have felt progressively worse. Last night my tummy was pretty bad and I wound up calling the pharmacist. I was up most of the night. I also read up on the two prescriptions that I am taking and it is normal that while taking the meds that I am going to feel this way. So for the next couple of days, until Monday at least I will be prepared.
Sorry to broadcast this to you all. I am not trying to whine or anything. I just know that after 167 days in a row of posting that if I missed a day or so some of you would be concerned. (I know when I post later than normal I sometimes hear from some of you!) That is nice though. It is good to have friends. :)
I am sure I will be back to my chipper old self before long. I did finish my next drawing yesterday on the next candle tray. It is cute gingerbread people. Easy and fun. I am debating whether to use light wood such as birch or maple and then tint the gingerbread people as I did the leaves and some of the other designs or to use sapele and have it a uniform medium brown. I am leaning toward the tinting because it will be fun to do and look nice. Maybe I can try a video on the tinting process for that one, as it is easy.
The next design I am planning is a poinsettia tray. I want it classy and elegant like the holly tray, with some good scroll work in it. I haven’t decided if I am going to cut out the gingerbread tray today or draw. Possibly I will do both. I will see how the day goes.
I can also look into doing some of the video stuff and some of the software and how to use it. So there is lots to do.
I am going to go slow though today. I may get nothing done. I am feeling a bit better now, but it is time to take the meds again. (Yippie!) Even on the pink cloud we have sick days.
You all have a great one! :)
