Almost Better....

I'm beginning to feel human again! This was the strangest bug I've ever had. I usually don't get sick that often but when I do it's a doozy.

We've been having very cold, rainy weather and that didn't help matters much. HB has made a fire every evening and I huddle under a pile of blankets. Earlier he snapped me and my buddy snoozing on the couch....



Right before I got hit with this bug I had been working on a picture. I like everything about it except the HAIR!!! Why do I have such a horrible time with hair? I wanted her to have dark hair but then how do you have highlights? Then I decided I wanted some loose tendrils flying around but they ended up looking like a cross between Captain Hook and Medusa!! But here she is anyway....



I guess it's back to the drawing board for me and hair! Plus I have to add some shading and other details but it's what I have at the moment.

Because I haven't felt good I haven't visited any blogs in several days and may be pretty slow about getting around to everyone but be patient with me....I'll make it sooner or later! Same with answering emails and such. I am so appreciative of all the messages I've received. Thank you all.

On another note, one of the benefits (if you can call it that!) of being sick is plenty of time to read. That's pretty much what I did when I wasn't sleeping. One of the books I read was "Knitting" by Anne Bartlett. I enjoyed this book even though the main character was not very warm and fuzzy. I gave her some slack because she had just lost her husband a few months ago. Mostly I found it to be a bit quirky as are the characters. Maybe it was just my fever induced interest but so far this year I've read four books and this has been my favorite of them.
