Weird virus?

Felt odd and yucky and vile Friday night.  In bed by 8, slept till 8 when I got woken up.

Napped that afternoon in a hammock in the mountains after a wonderful meal among friends.  Ahhhhhh

Got home, went to bed weirdly exhausted and somewhat nauseous about 6pm, dozed on and off till about 11 and then slept through till 8am when I was woken up from a sound sleep.

Felt much better today!

You might think so, no?

Youngest and I went on an orienteering training session, which was a three hour lovely walk in the mountains then when we got back, instead of following the pattern of the last few days, I DIDN'T go to bed!

Instead I started painting!

Four started and three completed.

You can just make out Eldest's finger and feet!  Largest of the three, 151cm x 151 cm.  Acrylic and marker on paper.  'How do you see me?'

'I can't even find the box' Acrylic, paintmarker, marker and pencil on paper.  70 x 50 cm.  Immigration series.

Finally, ' Facing Canada'  Marker and watercolour on paper. 56 x 57 cm

Then a big delicious dinner.  Mmmmmmm

Channel James Brown with me here, OK?

I feel GOOD!

Wow - BIG! What fun to really cut loose, huh? Glad you are feeling much, much better.

Sounds like you were incubating something special! Great bursts of energy sometimes follow periods of yuck - for me anyway.
The mountain walk sounds wonderful.
Lovely to meet you BTW K x

Nomad, I am looking out for the guy in charge of the shows here....I'm gonna put one on. YEAH!

Kim, That was it, cutting loose, I had one moment where I thought about what the heck we are going to do with the giant thing, and then just went for it.

Kate, it was a delight to meet you too! Got to do it again!
