Three weeks. Can you believe it? And I am saying that as, “I ONLY have three weeks!” Not enough time. Ha ha, he he, ho ho. Those of you who have taken part in the 30 in 30’s know how funny that is. In one of those challenges, three weeks would be daunting.
I like #78 best of these two. I don’t think #77 is bad, just unfinished. For #78, I think just a smidge more dark at the base of Mingus will do the trick. Maybe just above the hilltop on the left. Tomorrow I will work on these more, after a second look.
Today was a recovery day for me. After two days of running around in Phoenix. We are doing it all again next week, so I will need to push to get ahead. HA! Yeah right, you say.
More appointments and planning for Pete. He is slowly recovering his strength. His hearing was affected by the surgery, the swelling, and that is coming back little by little. He lost about ten pounds, and all of this together is affecting his balance and physical therapy sessions. He is still not sleeping through the night. But he is sleeping more.
Next week we will find out when the Proton Beam Therapy will begin. It will mean a five-week stay in Phoenix. The hospital has a program that provides a place to stay nearby, and they shuttle you to and from treatments. It will be three or five days a week. Can’t remember which now. And the sessions only last 30 minutes. If you have never heard of it, there is a video at that link, very interesting.
I won’t be staying, only the spouse is allowed. But I will be driving down for visits. Also for some appointments of my own. The busy is going to last through summer!
Oh and, by the way. I signed up for World Watercolor Month. For July. Right before Christine invited me to join in the Love Notes postcard swap. (I told her I would have to pass.)
Yes, I have lost it. But I figure, I am painting for the #100 until the 11th. So I will kinda be killing two birds with one stone. Anyone want to join me?? Christine? (How many did you paint on vacation?) Anyone? Ha ha ha. Cue the crickets.
God Bless us – everyone!
