Malade comme un chien

As suggested by my neighbor and fellow new blogger, SamArtDog, this is my official Pity Post. Temporarily belying the subtitle of my blog ("Art Every Day"), I have not painted for (gasp!) two days. Someone turn me in to the Daily Painters police! ...But, see, I have an excuse (however flimsy): I'm sick! I've been reallllllly tired for the last couple of days (the kind of tired where the goal of getting up and changing the dogs' water bowl requires drawing on huge reserves of willpower), and then today woke up with the kind of head cold where you have to walk around holding a kleenex box all day. Sigh. Je suis malade, et c'est la vie.
P.S. Said neighbor suggested that I may have contracted the illness at my last alla prima class on Wednesday. I will have to give everyone a stern talking-to next week, to be sure.

Good ol' 365-brand Kleenex. One for every day... No, one for every minute until your cold is G-O-N-E!

Jala, I love the name "pity post." It's OK....cut yourself a little sickness slack; sleep, read and just enjoy the bed. See you back soon.

If you could just order in some chicken soup.
Sleep, hunker down under the quilt and if you have to get out of bed, go easy on yourself.
You'll be back when you can.

Feel better! You get a pass for taking the day off from painting. :)

I loved to see that last post- your palette post, very interesting!

Thanks, you guys. Are you really not going to turn me in to the Daily Painters police? ;)
