My artsy endeavor last night:

From hand-drawn tulip
handdrawn-tulip-watermarked-blog.jpg

To watercolor and ink tulip
watercolor-ink-tulip-watermarked-blog.jpg

I still need to finish it off somehow (a border of some kind), but I haven't decided yet what I want to do. So for now I just left it plain.

This was SUPER fun. I found a YouTube video to help me draw the tulip and it was so easy I couldn't believe it.

Today was pretty much a total loss thanks to this migraine. And now it feels like it's coming back so I'm going to get off this computer and away from the florescent light. TTFN

Stupid migraine. I had so much to do today and accomplished nothing.

I finally felt like eating something (9:00 at night) but I didn't know what. I was not going to "cook" anything. So I had some instant oatmeal, a cup of hot cocoa, and two fresh tomatoes. LOL

I understand the headache and getting nothing done. I just hope you can get it to go away by tomorrow.

Hola! So far so good on the headache, but I still have one bloodshot eye. I feel like I want to go back to bed.

I didn't sleep well last night and woke up with a sore shoulder, slight headache and sore throat (I think the last two are allergies). We are due for temps in the low 80s the next few days. Where is autumn?

Autumn weather arrives here on Thursday or Friday, so you can probably expect it to reach you a day or two after that.

The folks are busy doing outdoor stuff today because tomorrow we have Luke's funeral and then it's supposed to rain Thur-Fri-Sat. Based on the forecast for Saturday (cold and rainy) we probably won't go to Pumpkinfest. Second year in a row we've missed it. Bummer.

Headache is just below the surface, but I'm managing to work on files. I'm swamped with law files right now. I'm waiting until later to take my shower (watercolor class tonight). I have to get to the grocery store tonight too, as I'm out of milk, bread, and yogurt. I have to figure out what I'm wearing to the funeral tomorrow. It's supposed to be about 80 degrees so I can wear summer clothes. If I get the button sewn back on my black dress slacks, I'll wear those and just a short-sleeved top I guess.

Did I miss someone dying?

Oh and JoJo: Stella's mom died yesterday. If you want her mom's address to send a card to the family, let me know. Will let you know more once I know it.

VENT:
Its been so unbelievably stressful since last Thursday.

We had distribution day on Saturday morning. We have over 50 Scouts in our pack and they were all picking up orders. We had to tell people to double check when they get home becasue we had not time or space for checking there. Unless their orders were tiny.

A JACK@ $$ decided to double check his order right then. He had a substantial order and he was blocking traffic. I asked him to please check that at home..... he rolled his eyes at me and ignored me. Another leader asked him the same and he ignored him also.
I had to ask the person who used to be our Popcron Kernel to asked him to move. He seemed to have listened to him. Because shortly after he talked to the JACK@ $$ he started to load his order.
Then he come and shoved me and told me to F O...... I then turn around followed him (because he though he was just going to leave) grabed him by his t-shirt and made him face me and told him "what the h3ll"..... he continued to tell me to F O and I told gave him a piece of my mind also......ggggggrrrr I would have gladly given him a right hook in his shnozzle.
Now, I have a living room covered with boxes full of popcorn waiting to be picked up by the kiddos.
Everybody seems to be having good sales and need more product. But I'm out of the popular stuff and I can't replenish it until next week because the Council also doesn't have product.

Now, I'm off my soap box

Yeah, he was a good kid, and really suffered at the end because it was in his lungs.

I don't know why some parents have to be such a-holes, especially at events involving their kids. I would have told him, "Way to set a good example, ya big jerk!"

Watercolor class tonight: We did skies. Pretty fun. And, my name was drawn to win the sample painting that the teacher did!

After class I ran some errands: post office, library, and Wally World. I needed groceries and some other miscellaneous stuff. I was super excited to find my favorite BEEFSTEAK RYE bread again! It was a Hostess product that disappeared when they closed last year. I was hoping that somebody would buy the rights to make it again.

I found a package of marble cake slices on the "day old bread" racks next to the milk coolers, so I bought it. When I got home, I had cake and ice cream and it was yummy and I'm not going to feel one bit guilty!

I need to make a sympathy card and then I suppose I better get to bed. Nighty night!

Poor Stella! I am so sorry to hear that. I knew she wasn't doing especially well, but didn't realize she was that bad.

I went to breakfast with a friend (the one with health issues, hubby is paraplegic, etc., etc). It was the quickest ever. She never slows down, but - oh my! We were in and out in under 40 minutes. Barely time to talk. No wonder she is stressed all the time!

Morning!

Was too tired to post last night. Luke's service, cemetery, luncheon (at 3:00 in the afternoon), then visiting with family at my cousin's house afterward ate up almost the entire day. We got home a little after 5:00 and quickly changed into grubbies in order to do some work outside and in the garage. Sounds like the folks are definitely leaving next Tuesday and we're predicted to have rain and/or storms the next 3 days.

I have a goopy eye and a tight throat this morning, so I'm headed off to make some hot tea and maybe do a hot compress on the eye for a while. And then I need to crank out some files. CYL

Evening!

Allergies are wreaking havoc on me. I've tried a new med which helped a little but now, not so much. Started using saline spray every few hours AND took Benedryl to see if a 'double dose' would help. Nope. Guess I'll have to contact the doctor. My head feels wobbly and ready to fall off my body!

I sent a nice sympathy card to my cousin today. The way things went yesterday, my assumption is that all of the cards and memorials that people brought to the funeral home or to the church luncheon will go to Luke's current wife. Not that she doesn't deserve them, of course, but it was obvious that her parents were in charge yesterday and that certain people felt left out, KWIM? I especially felt bad for Luke's son and daughter from his previous marriage, who were not seated in the family section, but with the other kids (their cousins, I imagine, and maybe their step-sisters?). I certainly hope that Luke had a will that somehow provides for them.

Allergies have peaked here. So far nothing that we can't handle *knock on wood*

MissI, that sounds sad. Your cousin was their dad and those children should be treated specially well in light of their loss.

I know. I think it would have been better if they had been seated with their grandma (my cousin) and their uncle (Luke's brother) in the family section, not with a bunch of other kids. They're only 11 and 13, for Pete's sake. They need comforting! Even if they were there with their mom, there would have been plenty of room for all 3 of them. And then when the minister referred to "the family" and waved his arm in that direction, they would have felt more included.

But like I said, the 2nd wife's parents were obviously in charge. Apparently they couldn't care less about his children from a previous marriage. Yet they call themselves Christians.

Something similar happened to Lisa and Aaron when their dad died. His 2nd wife and stepdaughters were listed as his wife and HIS kids, and Lisa and Aaron were listed at the end of the obituary in a really odd way (not identified as son or daughter), like an afterthought. It was odd and disgusting. But that is Lisa's stepmom all the way. At least they were old enough to handle it. But Luke's kids are KIDS. It breaks my heart.

Dat's not good. Hope you can get into the doctor soon.

I think my eye issue is allergies again, too. I started using the drops I got in May (when this happened last), and they seem to be helping.

It's odd that I don't have the nasal congestion associated with allergies, and today is the first day I had kind of a scratchy throat. Not that I *want* those things, but you'd think I'd have them based on how much the junk is affecting my eyes. LOL

I've been in front of this computer all day evaluating Chinese law files (most of which were rather stinky, I hate to say), so I'm signing off here to eat dinner and do something else. Mr. Wig will probably want the computer in a little bit, so I probably won't be back on until after Project Runway.

Caro, have you been watching PR this season? It's been a mostly underwhelming season, design/creativity-wise.
