Pluggin' Along

It's been a rough few days here at the house of Hendon. Somehow I have managed to mess up an achilles tendon. Not cool. I do happen to have one very awesome podiatrist, however, she surgered both feet about 25 years ago and she is still in business. Heck! She's even younger than me by a couple years. I know that 'surgered' isn't a word, but it aptly fits the situation. 

A routine of therapy and staying off the foot is about to drive me up a wall. We are trying to prevent a more aggressive approach and are giving a two week grace period.

So here I sit on my lovely chaise lounge with my ipad, drawing desk, a ton of pens and pencils and markers of every color, and a ton of projects that need to be completed. I am still working away on the 106 ATCs I need to complete for the CZT Deck Swap. I have exactly half of them finished. The one above just reminds me of the Wizard of Oz! Does that not look like the yellow brick road and the Emerald City? Totally not planned, it just fell that way! 

Hopefully my foot will start feeling better, instead of worse which it has done today, and I will be able to get back into the swing of things with this blog. Thank you for being so patient. 

Oh yes, I spent a good part of last week taping together a new journal/calendar/planner but was so unhappy with it that this afternoon I ripped it all apart. Threw away the remains of the journal, and salvaged what I could from the gelli plate prints and watercolor paper. Taking a new direction with that and hope to show you some progress in the next few days. 

Have a great Sunday! May God bless your day and your time and may you be faithful to Him - cause He deserves it. (Something I forget on a regular basis.) Hugs!!!

  2. Good Morning Alice, Sorry to hear about your archilles tendon and being trapped to a chair. I had a tendon replaced in my foot 12 years ago partly because I didn't follow doctors orders and stay off of it and let it heal. Listen to your doctor and save yourself a long recovery. I like the sheet you are doing for the deck, I am doing my first big sheet, almost done. Wanted to tell you, I was accepted by the World of Color Expo to teach Zentangle in November. I am really excited about it. Take care of yourself, I will pray for your rapid recovery.

  3. I'll go with Yellow Brick Road. Please follow doctor's orders & take care of yourself. I know the pulling things apart & throwing away - some weeks there's ever so much recycling………. Love the look of the Scallops tangle with you way you edged it in green.
    Thinking of you
    Much love
