A Busy RAV

Between being sick 1st with a touch of Bronchitis for almost a month, then getting a bladder infection on top of that, basically feeling pukey, getting ready for an art show that didn't happen due to rain, and staying up til 4 am the night before the show. If I had read my emails instead of working so dilligently, I would have known it was cancelled. Then I would not have had to get up so early to get ready only to be called to say it was postponed until June 7th. Due to the cancellation, I got to attend Rhett's drama class play where he was the only one who didn't need prompting for his lines. Then there was the drama at work where we thought we were FINALLY rid of Illy Nilly only to find out She's back! How I don't know, but I suspect blackmail. Then my guys birthdays back to back. Whew! I have taken some awesome pictures of Rhett for which I am thankful. One looked like a Hallmark card I saw when I got his birthday card. Back in high school I used to submit words to Hallmark. Now I think I should submit my photos. That has been my only form of artisticness since the almost art show until today. I did draw two things.

I am thankful I have a little more time to work on my art for the upcoming show and pray it doesn't rain again! I am thankful for my friends who encouraged me, offered advice, and helped me, etc. My art bio sheet is complete, copied and ready to be displayed on my table at the show. I have a rock that holds a photo of Rhett to put on top of them. I have my business cards now, but they had an error which was my fault although I didn't now better. I put my 3 email addresses on it, but the type is so small it requires a magnifying glass to read them! LOL So I am writing my gmail address on it. I was so tired Saturday night writing it, that in my sleepy state Rhett noticed I'd left off a number! So I had to re-do what I'd already done! My next business cards will have some of my artowrk on it. Maybe an abstract. I love being an abstract artist.

I am thankful for the days I took off to spend with my guys. Spending special time with Don on his special day brought us closer and made me fall more in love with him.

Rhett is out of school and we are thankful. He and Don had a really good birthday. Rheet got to pick out what he wanted that day & we got it before his party. He got a new Nintendo DSI. He can take pictures of himself and doing funny things with his face like pull his checks out so he looks like a chipmunk or smush his face together to form really weird faces. Last night he gave me long, straight pink hair! Don died laughing at it.

We will be traveling during Memorial day so please keep us in your prayers for traveling mercies to and from as well as a safe return. I will miss my artist guild meeting this coming week as well as an art class I wanted to take from a very talented lady artist, but I can't do everything; I can't please everyone and somethings just have to fall to the wayside or until the next opportunity presents itself. Sometimes I wish I were like Samantha on "Bewitched" so I could wiggle my nose and be two places at once, but I figure something would still go wrong with one of them. That is why we have to make choices in our lives and hope they are the right ones. Spending time with family is always a right one.

This week consisted of the two aunts... Aunt Betty is home from the rehab hospital & receiving therapy at home which wears her out. Aunt Va is back in the hospital again after passing out in the doc's office yet again. Otherwise everyone's health is good and we are thankful.

I will have to find someone else who has a tent for the art show or Don and I will split the cost of a new one since I will be doing these in the future. It seems there is always something we need to buy sort of like an unexpected bill.

I posted a Thankful Thursday (two weeks ago now!) but didn't link to it. I am linking this time. Please feel free to read my previous post. It is hard to believe I have been away from my blog for this long but life happened. Mine isn't really about nature but then my posts never are on the subject. LOL If you would like to participate in Thankful Thursday, please go to the following...

Hope you have a great Memorial Day!
