Home with a cold...

When you get to be my age, "12", little things like a cold can wipe you out. Last time it took me several weeks and 2 Dr. visits to get better. This time I am not letting the sneezes and snizzles get ahead of me.

So besides napping, what do I do when I am home with a cold? Assemble 2 storage cubes that I got at the holidays for under my craft table, look at email, pet cats, read my next mystery book, pet cats. Nothing too exciting, but I am enjoying every minute.

Been listening to Clapton all day, mostly his blues. Seeing him in concert is on my Bucket List. I almost saw him about 12 years ago, but, an emergency operation and hospital stay for me kept my husband and I from going. We were to double date with Alison and her husband. Sigh. To make it less painful for me, Alison sent me a bouquet with a note from "Eric" telling me how sorry he was that I was missing his concert. I still have the note on my bulletin board.

Took advantage of lots of sales for little craft things for me before the holidays when the online stores had enticing sales. Got more Copics before the price rise at the beginning of the year. Right after I ordered, I heard that there will be a new release in February. I love Copics. My favorite coloring medium. Just found a sturdy box to hold them and I may have grown out of it already. I do have a few duplicates in there so we'll see what I can fit in. Copics are sort of like M&Ms' for me. One leads to another....

Think I'll go create a baby card and then it will be time for dinner. Having chicken soup from the Chinese restaurant in town. They make excellent Won-ton soup. Really helps with my cold. Gary gets a night off from cooking.

Thanks for visiting.

I love the box you found to hold your Copics! Very cute and the perfect size (if you don't buy any more...) Alison
