This sweet sailboat set arrived just in time for this week's sketch! And it perfectly paired up with gorgeous DSP that just arrived as well. I feel like I have been just sailing through these past two weeks.......just walking the dog and taking it easy. Staying as stress free as possible! I am tapering off the prednisone this week and then we will see how the next step of recovery goes - so far so good......my case of Bell's remains mild!
I have never ever taken a course of prednisone before in all of my years - and I am sure many of you have - but let me tell you I have been an eating machine! Holy Mackerel that stuff makes you hungry!
So there are cookies in the oven, a pot of tea is brewing and my book awaits! This week I am reading Anderson Cooper's book Vanderbilt: The Rise and Fall of an American Dynasty - sounds lofty but reads like a soap opera - what a story!
I always love Jen Mitchell's square designs! Play along with us at Freshly Made Sketches!

I'm the tea drinker in the coffee shops but I love funky coffee shops.....fabulous smells, pastries and coffee cakes! This was a fun card to make with one of my favorite SU sets. I have a few pieces of the heavy chalkboard paper left from a while back which was perfect for embossing the sentiments.
My posts are short these days because I am battling a case of Bell's Palsy - fortunately mild ......but tiring. My doctor ranked me a two out of ten which was wonderful but it will still take time to resolve. Last weekend I noticed my taste was off and I couldn't hear well and just felt weird so you know what I thought! My son-in-law showed up with a Covid test which was negative and then said, "Why are you winking at me?"
I wasn't winking!!! My right eye wouldn't close correctly! So off to the doctor the next morning who gleefully told me I wasn't having a stroke - "just" Bell's. Prednisone, anti viral meds and rest was prescribed for these first two weeks......and lots of eye drops. And I have to avoid people since steroids lower resistance - sigh....what else is new!
Then off to the eye doctor who said "Patience Grasshopper" is your new mantra......nerves take time to simmer down and recover. But as long as I use drops I can read and watch TV and craft so I am good. Besides it is fifteen degrees out - fireplace season anyway~!
I played with the sketch and the photo today at Fusion! Always fun to play here! Hope you join us!
