Good morning to my friends ... old and new.. that stop by for a visit .. WELCOME !!!!
You know the drill .. I supply the snacks, and you enjoy them to your hearts content .. remember .. magic home -- no fat, no carbs, and no calories .. and all of the flavor and taste you can imagine !!! I made up coffee, hot cocoa, and hot tea .. all of which can be chilled if you prefer !! :) Help yourself and welcome !! :)
Our virtual kitchen is Covid-19 free ...:)
Tuesday !!! It's Tuesday !!!! :)
Yesterday's road trip was just what the doctor ordered .. the machines were okay .. and played a bit .. that made it worth while, but because it was a Monday .. I played carefully ... and came home after about 4 hours of entertainment .. $30 down .. that is GOOD !! Plus it just felt good to just get out for something other than errands, and haftado's .. I had my phone volumn off, and it stayed in my purse until the ride home !!
It's feeling good to just be able to take a day and R&R ... Getting there .. slow but sure . :)
We got home around 3ish, and had our rotisserie chicken that he bought the night before .. and I was so full I just could not look at food anymore .. Since he started feeling better and his appetite came back ... I'm suffering .. lol lol lol .. I have to reel that back in again ..
I didn't feel like just sitting, and while I was out letting my shoulder recoup a bit, I went upstairs to figure out a plan.. My desk was 28 inches from floor to worktable, and then add 2 -3 inches before my easel starts.. so working on my drawings my arm had to be level, and or raised .. So I found a folding table that was 24 inches at the worktable, and then with the easel; came to 26ish inches .. I moved my easel over to that table, and found it was perfect height .. My right arm could rest comfortably at my side .. the hardest part, was to make sure I sat close enough so I wasn't leaning over for that .. and "I think I got it" !!!! and I don't have to take time off of my drawing entertain a sore shoulder .. now just to fix the problem that is there .. I found some exercises .. from the discriptions that I read in Healthline page, it sounds like it's a sprain .. which could be very possible .. so I will work on the stretching exercises, and if it doesn't fix; I will then think about the doctor ..
So --- I worked on my drawing and finished it .. :) and I'm happy with it .. using the photos as color references but drawing from pulling them out of my head ..
and the finished drawing ..
and happy with it, but still need to learn more !!!!!! Need to LEARN !!!! still looks 2 dimensional .. I want to practice till it looks 3 dimensional !!!! So - more studying, and more practice .. but still happy with my results .. It was about a week of taking my time !!! :) and Julie .. their owner, likes them !!!! :)
I slept good last night .. I think because I am relaxed again .. and liking it !!! :)
This morning I have an oil change scheduled for Elsie .. I've been wanting to start setting the appointments but by the time I think of it, it's after 5, and well .. then I plan to call the next day ..... and the same thing happens ..Oh well .. But Jeff texted me yesterday and I jumped the gun and set the appointment for Elsie to get her oil changed .. :)
That's my big thing for today, I will probably set up an appointment for Beauty today and then they will both be done and ready to go again .. I think Beauty needs tires as well .. ??? .. I want to stop at Micheals on the way back home ..
With that being said .. I wish everyone a wonderful day !!! :) I'm planning on one ... :)
