So Where Have YOU Been??

All the best laid plans gone awry....and I'm still not thinking perfectly clear, but am coming up for air to offer a small picture story of my plight.

I didn't just come back from North Carolina with new images, adventures and ideas...oh no. I came back with a really vicious virus that knocked me back like I haven't experienced in years. So, when I show you this photo.....

...it is to illustrate how my throat has felt for several days now....

Or this one...
...and say, well yes, it's my new orchid that bloomed while I was away, but it reminds me of spinning pinwheels, which is exactly how my brain has been acting--true thought or reasoning hasn't been possible.

Or this one...

...and say, well yes, it's a new silk and pearl piece with the title "Evening Waterfall" but actually, a waterfall is an apt description of my nose. Who knew so much liquid could flow from one's head? I wish I owned stock in Kleenex!

My friends say this nasty bug going around has knocked a lot of people back on their "you know whats"....I must say I slept more in the past 5 days than I have in the past 2 weeks..uh oh, maybe that's why my resistance was down?

I do know that I may as well have been...

...like these husks, pretty useless.

But that I hope and trust that in a few more days, I'll be...

...back in flight like this lovely Swallowtail I spied in the botanical garden I thought I'd be telling more stories about!

And once I am all back to normal....

...new goodies like these will turn up in my little shop on Etsy,
and more new stories will be told!

Keep well, everyone! I'm going back to bed....

I have my fingers crossed that this virus keeps on truckin' when it sees our door. School *just* started and I desperately need my kids to continue going every day.

I'll even take one for the gipper if it means they'll keep going regularly.

It was a really, really long summer.

I'm so sorry you're feeling so punk right now! ;o( You posted some amazing photos though and your brain must be working still because you did a fabulous job of finding photos that were appropriate! LOVE the new jewelry and can't wait to see it in your shop. Get better soon!
