Sketchy Week of Checks and Balances
While cleaning the garden I saw that my neglected cymbidium was in full bloom. Three canes of bobbing flowery faces. It hadn't bloomed in years. + Yes!
Then I tweaked my knees picking up that potted orchid. - Ouch!
The next day, I limped out to the mailbox because I couldn't do much else. It's usually filled with junk mail. Not this time. Just one business size envelope. A $250.00 check from a gallery. +Yes!
Not being able to stand long periods put an end to working in clay. I do most of my clay work standing. I decided to do some sketches instead. While taking a picture of this sketch I dropped my camera. A $250.00 point and shoot camera. - Ouch!
My knee was feeling better. + Yes!
While writing a post for 1 Simply Home I thought the house would never get done. The holdup since fall was the septic tank. The ground water level was still high. By Presidents Day weekend it had gone down, but would they put it in during the holiday? We weren't sure. It was a window of opportunity. We knew the rains were returning. - Ouch!
We got a phone call yesterday. They had put in the septic over the weekend! And the electicity is in, too! Jumped for joy...YES!YES!YES!
And with that, I tweaked my knee again. No worries.
There's a hummingbird nesting just outside my window. Yes!
