Three baby owls
These pictures were taken by my Dave with his new camera a Sony Cybershot. This is the mother owl. We did find out that there are 3 baby owls. If you enlarge the baby pic you can see 3 of them.
I woke up this morning and decided I just could not take the pain anymore. I have scheduled a steroid shot for Friday morning. I sure hope this one does the trick.
Ever since my trip to Maryland I have been in a lot of pain. I try to put on a happy face but it does get hard to even do that. I have had a few weeks of things that had to get done, like weaving the blanket or preparing for the Fiber Fair. I manage to pull through and do it all but when I get out of the other side of all this activity I am a mess. Dave is headed to Yellowstone for a week and I was going to go but I just can't be far from a heating pad. Its sad to think that my life has deteriorated to this stage. I find myself becoming a person who only can think about what she can't do instead of all the things that are possible. I guess that is why I felt I had to try the shot one more time. I need to move beyond this back problem, its starting to eat me alive in some ways. I am starting to feel like one of those people in the depression commercials on TV and I don't like it. Enough of all this downer talk.
Thrift Store Finds
I have been slowly accumulating materials for the class with Misty Mawn. Now I am looking for collage items like old books, magazines etc. So I went to a thrift store yesterday. I found some old sheet music and an old scrabble game. I took all the wood tile pieces out, kept the board since its heavy cardboard that I can use for some bookmaking and tossed the beat up box. Some old games have great collage elements to them. I think I will hit some of the other thrift store now to see if I can find other gems.
