The past 9 days

Everyday, I draw and write about my day in my journal. This week's entries were just crumbs.
Man, oh man. I've been in such a slump! It all started a couple days before Thanksgiving; feeling sluggish and uninspired. Then my daughter informs me she has a bad cold. I felt bad for her but darn it, if she would get proper rest she wouldn't keep bringing colds home for me to catch.
I had hadThanksgiving Day had all figured out Martha Stewart style, but when the day actually came my body said, "ah, no, it's going to be cranky style."
My daughter sniffled and the in-laws, well God love them, they make their own special sounds.
(just kidding mom and dad!!!!!!!!) yikes.
Everything grated on my nerves. Next day, I was so sick with a sore throat, fever and chills. I put on my winter knit hat, my dad's old sweater and wrapped myself up in a blanket to discover that daytime t.v. is trash.
Thanksgiving weekend, and following week were planned to be one of great accomplishments, because? because my husband went hunting for a week which means most of my domestic time eating chores were on the shelf for awhile and I would have had great and long spans of time to do projects.
Thank the good Lord for the Lawrence Welk Show, thats all I gotta say.
I live in the stone age don't forget.
Anywho, the entire week I was sick with a cold and felt rotten.
I cut my foot too, just a little.
My brother sent me a box of apples from Pennsylvania which I thought was the sweetest thing in the world and I do believe it got me over the hump.
Next day? I felt like my mood was a rain cloud stuck over my head and trying to drown me.
Today? I counted my blessings, my cold is on it's way out and I'm in a much better mood.
I know, its big news.

I hope you are feeling better by now and that you have a better Holiday season than your Thanksgiving. Your drawings were wonderful. Very descriptive and they truly showed your mood.
Maybe it is true what they say... An apple a day...
Best Wishes!
