How clever you are. Unlike me (I’m still waiting further instruction from the S&H but I have not deleted the email thingy that arrived which is progress, of a sort) some readers already know how to track blogs.
Chris uses Feedly and Megan likes Bloglovin and they wrote to tell me. Thank you thank you. I will still pursue something here to help but by the time I have it sorted you’ll probably know what I’m going to write next before I do.
Meanwhile I am still doing the workouts and can now get my right arm behind me on my waist nearly. This has taken some time and still hurts a lot so I only do it twice and when I do it you can see the screw in my shoulder. Yuk.
I have, however, found a workout tailored exactly to me and I am doing it by the hour. On one of those local community Interweb efforts someone advertised for a person to make decorations for a Halloween ball fundraiser for the local hospice, of course I volunteered and of course I started really slowly thinking a) I had plenty of time and b) I couldn’t do it. Happily I have been creative preceded by these same thoughts exactly for decades, so now I am actually getting on with it in a panic and with a looming deadline in the normal way. I am making possibly four big ‘cardboard pictures’ which is what I said I’d make. I’ll show you when I get to Thursday or thereabouts. They are huge for a miniaturist 18 inches X 30 inches. These sizes were dictated by the size of the packaging that the backing boards and frames were made out of. They entail a lot of stretching with both arms, so the spoken accompaniment goes ‘Ow, dunnit, ow ow no, yes, dunnit! Ha ha.’ Last night, late, I had covered the back of Frankenstein’s monster’s head with the uber huge sticky sticky, get off get off, sticky tape and I had to reeeeeaaach to get it to the area in the centre of the picture to stick it down, so I just did. Crafting through gritted teeth but I did it. I even got it stuck in the right place.
Pics later, I’m off to do a workout because now my legs are seizing up.
Life is art, art is life.
