Quick Practice of What's in Front of Me
I got home last night after 9 pm and an intense day. I didn't have time for any painting, but did manage to sketch a bit before turning off the light at 10. This simple watercolor was done a few weeks ago when I got to the B&B a bit earlier -- but still didn't have enough time for anything more elaborate.
Thank you again for your well wishes. I'm feeling much better -- and have to put a plug in for a product that seems to have helped me turn the corner -- Airborne (no paid sponsorship, I assure you! LOL). Somehow that herbal remedy has take the 'hack' out of the cough, the 'stuff' out of the stuffiness, and put the 'well' into wellbeing. I'm sure resting, lots of fluids, cough syrup and decongestants have contributed as well - but this stuff worked well for me and so I thought I'd pass that along.
We're making a dent in the preparations for our big event next week - the 'Prelude' to the next phase of the Arboretum. We'll be creating a 'southern' garden and the lecture I've written explains the heritage of these gardens and the cultures that have contributed to making them distinct. It'll be a mighty busy time, because immediately after that event, we'll be interviewing for two positions we urgently need to fill. Once all those obligations are met, we have a brief respite (24 hours, I think! LOL) before we ready for our largest fundraiser -- our plant sale. So, I'm stocking up on Airborne... lol
