Isn’t that a gorgeous painting??
I have this ‘stormy sea’ thing going on in my life right now so won’t be posting for a bit. Don’t worry,a good storm is very invigorating.
*Update* Some of you know that my daughter has been ill, off and on, for some time.Â The lung doc has never been completely sure its just asthma.Â This week she was being tested for Cystic fibrosis because the doc thinks she has far too many incidents of pneumonia in the last two years and she wanted to rule out CF as a possible cause. Â Happily, the results came in yesterday and does not have that disease.Â On another happy note, since the mycoplasma pneumonia was discovered and treated in June/July, she is much improved and, in fact, has suddenly grown a whole bunch and none of her pants fit her anymore!Â You see, the sun really is breaking through the storm clouds 🙂
September 19th update: I amÂ a guest blogger at Courting Destiny today.Â If you want to read about my perfume shopping trip to NYC last year, by all means, drop in!
