….I forgot my password. Seriously.
I received so many “where-are-you, I’m-worried” emails, I had to get over my guilt and embarrassment and just post. Now here I am with much to say, but little energy or creative thought with which to do so. It’s been a long three months.
My IPhoto indicates that I drew those animated figures on February 7th, and posted them them that day. In the meantime I had the illness that blew through my social circle soon after, and it was a full six weeks of hell and high-water to get through it. Some antibiotics, prednisone, three bottles of cough medicine, an inhaler, and copious amounts of sleep did nothing to hasten my recovery. In fact, I’m still having pain where I am fairly sure I either popped a rib or grew a hernia from the stress of coughing.
I somehow managed to graduate from the Master Gardener Program and I am now obsessed with putting in my garden. While I’ve always had a passion for plants, the knowledge I gained in the program has me doing things right, and I’m already seeing the results. Roses should be fed once a month while blooming! Who knew? I do now.
I hooked a complete rug runner, (My design. It’s goofy like me, but definitely a one-of-a-kind. “The Colorful Crows of North Carolina.” 72″ long and done with strips of recycled, over-dyed 100% wool, #8 Amy Oxford punch on Monks cloth). Had several day trips, numerous luncheons and read several books. Got a new television, finished the basement studio, created many watercolors, and took more instruction in my favorite art form.
The adage is this, and you’ve heard me say it before: If I have time to write, I have little to write about. If I have much to write about, I have little time to do so. The latter is the case at the moment, but I am very touched and my heart is full from all the nice emails. Thank you so much.

I’ll post some pictures of the garden next time.
