The days have been looking like this since Wednesday.
Before that we had a couple warmer days. You know I was feeling crummy if I was too exhausted to go out and kill the flies so I could open the porch door when it was near 70 degrees. Yes, the flies knew it was probably the last hurrah, too, and flocked to my porch--LOL! Saw a wasp out there, too, that I haven't seen again since Monday. *shudder* And some kind of gnats? We never have gnats up here.
I've been all out of whack! Monday night was the first night since I started taking melatonin (end of February) that I couldn't sleep all night long. I've had nights where I don't get much sleep, but I wasn't able to sleep at all till after 7am. A nap was all I got that morning. I've still been sleeping at night since then, but one night it's very little and the next night it's nine hours or more...like a sleep see-saw.
Since the rain, I think I am sneezing less. So my guess is allergies or hay fever. I haven't had to deal with it being this bad for many years. But it hasn't been this dry. I've heard that is where the weird little speckled wings flies are from--the prolonged dry weather.
Anyways, sorry. I actually do have entries for the art challenges this week. This was the zendala template from over at The Bright Owl. You can pop over there and see people who had a lot more energy than I did--LOL!
I notice I tend to do these first because they are relaxing for me.
Just did my own thing and doodled away. Nothing fancy.
The theme for this week's Artist's Play Room challenge was "celestial/stargazing".
I wanted to make an attempt at northern lights and stars.
Some of the white paint markers have chiseled ends and so they look more like flying saucers up close--LOL!
I used rubber stamps for the trees along the bottom. Tried to kind of rub away some clouds and added a full moon.
It's been so dark in here that it was hard to get pictures. I actually liked it better without the flash.
Anyways, I am still on the zombie side, for sure. Dagan and Leah have ValleyCon this weekend. Karma had her first tablespoon of the new Felidae canned food. She gobbled it up...but then she's almost always interested in something brand new. The test will be if she is still eating it in a week--LOL!
Karma says hi!
I say hi!
Enjoy your weekend! :)
