Sleepless in Spokane

Tuesday, Apr 01

I’m late again! I can’t believe it. Sadie and Bernice got me up at around midnight for a backyard run, and I didn’t get back to sleep again until after two a.m.!!! (They, of course, snoozed happily the whole time.)

I read art books. I went down the hall to my craft room to fiddle around a while. I read art books again. Finally, I went back to sleep–and didn’t wake up until nine-thirty, by which point I was considered missing in action. Guess those trips to Toronto and Seattle, both of which were great fun, took a little more out of me than I thought.

Bernice is back in her cone, with her leg bandaged. Turned out, she was chewing on the wound, so now it’s antibiotics and the whole deal all over again. She can get downstairs okay–unlike Sadie, she hates the elevator–but up is a problem because she’s short (9 inches between the top of her head and the floor), and the cone bumps against the next step up. So I carry her a lot. This time, she’s much better adjusted to the cone, though. If it’s not one thing around here, it’s another!

I’ve got a couple of ATCs done, ones I like well enough not to chuck into the trash, anyway. I love doing collage in that small, small area. Heck, I just love doing collage, period. It’s gloriously messy, and like most writers, I am the Clutter Queen. I pour over magazines like “Sommerset Studio”–great stuff. And I’ve discovered some great websites: is a big favorite, along with Stampington & Company, European Papers, and Alpha Stamps.

Time to eat breakfast, though it’s nearer to lunch time as I write this. Weight Watchers is still working like a charm–I had a two pound gain when I got home from Toronto, but that’s gone now, and it’s full speed ahead. At this year’s NFR, I’ll be the one in the little tiny Wranglers….
