Self portrait

I'm participating in my first self portrait day that Misty Mawn has been doing. Actually the first art participation that I have done.

Beautiful day today. It's actually hot and not raining for a change. Been outside in my new little ankle support that fits inside a shoe. So much better than the Frankenstein walking cast. Hopefully I will get the pool worked on more this afternoon.

But now I'm taking a break from outside stuff to work on finishing two paintings and getting two new ones gessoed. Then back to the jewelry bench.

Still deciding if I can possibly make it walking around Grass Roots Festival and besides how can I go and not dance? Check out the schedule.

Thoughts for a Tuesday

Cherry Orchard, Hector, New York - Seneca Lake

Little Kilala is out for her walk with the dog walker. It's so strange to watch her go down the road with someone else. She's so adorably cute.

I had a doctor's appt yesterday and halleluya (sp I know) I can walk. It's a miracle. When I first broke my ankle I thought OMG how can this ever be fixed. I am curious about what will happen when I go through an airport security check.

I've been trying to get the pool cleaned and going by this weekend. Bad timing to not be able to do anything. The pool is a mess, the garden is a mess, nothing is fixed up to be outside but I'm working on it. It will be done by the end of the summer just in time to put everything away for winter.

six weeks since breaking the ankle - argh

Dream #1 - mixed media

I need a different camera! It's so hard to decide on what to get on limited funds but I really need one that will take sharp and color corrrect photos of my artwork and jewelry. Canon? Nikon? I'm certainly not getting another Olympus.

The dog walker came today to give little Kilala a walk, "finally", she said! She was terrific. She gave her some training for walking with her and not dragging your arm off. Hopefully when I can get walking again she will be trained so that I won't have to worry about injury. By the way I traded vehicles with Barb yesterday and drove to the store! Amazing!!! It's been six weeks since I broke the ankle. Six LONG weeks.

Here she is all tuckered out (besides it was hot today):

Okay so she's not sound asleep - got too keep on eye on me!

She's so wonderful...
