* Lost Blogger Found ....

Before anything else I want to say a heart felt thank you to all of you who emailed, sent cards and letters, phoned and sent gifts.  It certainly kept my spirits up even though it didn't seem to help me be able to actually do anything.

I've missed you all, and to those I was unable to answer, I'm so sorry.  The energy just simply wasn't there.  It was like someone pulled the plug and drained all the water out.

I've been trying to keep myself amused with "Book of Days" which has been good, because it's smaller pages.  This week, however, I had the urge to paint on the BIG painting --- YEAH.  I made quite a bit of progress this week, but get tired so quickly.  Habibi and I do a lot of napping.

Won't be blogging almost daily like I used to, but in the beginning I'm hoping to be able to get something on the page once in a while.  I'll also try and get around to see you all in the next couple of days/weeks/months/ (who knows for sure). :o) I've surely missed you LOTS.

So, here's what I'm working on at the moment.  Not a very good photo, I couldn't get the light right.  Still lots of work to be done.  She has hardly spoken to me at all.  Told me there was to be a lamb in her arms and something muttered about 'mysteries of the night'.  Other than that - I know nothing!

Thanks so much for sticking it out with me.  Thanks for dropping by and most of all for caring.  You have become true friends.
