While sitting briefly with my peeps and dealing with my flaring "menopause moments", I realized how long it has been since my last post on this blog... I have no idea where the time has went...I move from one medium to the next while mixing in the outside world too... Sun-up to sun-down, all 36 hours are over before I know it!!! What?? ... It sure feels like 36 hours!!...
I have spent a couple of days in the sewing room this week, making a dent in my "To Do" list... Today was a nice clear day with high humidity, like a sauna!! It was perfect for drying my first load of witches, pumpkins and crows...and they dried completely despite my getting them out there really late!!... This weekend will be spent stuffing them and maybe painting a few...if I'm ambitious!!
It has been a long while since I last poured chalk ware and ,with some help from my son, I was able to get a nice batch of animals poured earlier this week...It saves a lot of time when you have a helper ...even if it's just taping the molds together!! They will all need to dry out some before I can clean them and then paint them...I think I'll move to rug hooking next while I am waiting...I have got to get at least one pumpkin rug finished!!
On a calmer note ... When I occasionally come up for a breather, I step outside on the deck and watch the butterflies...A ripe banana is all you need to coax them to visit ... We are getting a "herd" of regulars now that stay around all day ... In fact, they show up every morning searching for bananas before I can get them out there... I am growing very fond of them and of relaxing!!!
For all of you whippersnappers out there, doing all of these things with flaring "menopause moments" is like doing them all with a ball and chain attached to your ankles...However, life is still good (amen) and menopause goes away eventually!
