This will be quick. I've been sick since Tuesday. Luckily I am running a reverse temp so they aren't as bad (97 to 98 degrees). Nothing bad, just exhausting.
Anyways, I had been working on setting up my bullet for a few days. Will continue when I'm feeling better.
Also, had to cancel dentist cleaning & checkup, eye doctor checkup, and Caroline for cleaning this past week. Will reschedule when I'm well.
We had some snow...
...that made it difficult...
...for Annie to spy on (or scare) the birds.
Even trying her alternative spy spot on the art table by the studio window didn't work well due to snow stuck to the screen there, too.
Was a frustrating day for Annie--LOL!
But the critters are all still out there. And hungry.
I asked Dagan if he could help out his sick old mom. ;) He came over with a smile after work, took out my trash for me, and brought in a whole lot of wild bird seed so I am good for a while. :)
That was it even on pictures, so you know I haven't been feeling up to par--LOL! BUT--Serena was curious as to what my lapdesk set up was that bothered Annie so much (and did Miss Karma, too). Imagine this pillow and lapdesk on my lap when I'm in the chair.
With my bum arm I can't even press down to hold the paper in place for very long so I put velcro strips on top of the lapdesk...
...and on the back of this clipboard so I don't have to use my left hand to hold the paper down.
So --if you can picture it--Annie figured out the best spot is to climb up on the arm of the chair and she lays down with her back against that light colored throw pillow under the lapdesk (which is the right height when I am sitting in there, of course) and then I can put my left arm around her and pet her while I write.
Annie still had quite a time adjusting to my hand coming and going from where she wanted it--to the terrible, scary, velcro-ripping noises moving the clipboard--flipping sheets--generally moving things about and sipping on coffee. These frights and slights took a while for Annie to adjust to, but she kept coming back...until now she pays them little mind and she has even fallen asleep there--LOL! :)
Anyways, while I have been under the weather I have watched the new seasons of Peaky Blinders and The Ranch and am now working on Colony (all on Netflix streaming)...plus watched a few documentaries and movies. Caught up on letters owed and slept a lot here and there. Hope to feel back to my normal pretty soon. Just wanted to let you know what was happening up here. ;) Later...
