Brrrrr! It is 3 degrees above zero F, but at least the sun is shining. The creek is frozen over. The kindergartner has no school (must be a wind chill issue). I am in my art room reading my email and the blogs I subscribe to and listening to crying babies. I think it is going to be a trying day. Usually it is a good idea to get the little ones outdoors when they are unhappy indoors, but with these temps that is not going to happen.
I am still working in my art journal. I think I am going to start spending time at the Yahoo! group Soul Journal because I am feeling like I need some inspiration. I feel I am doing the same pages over and over. It is fun, but I think it would be a good challenge to respond to a prompt and see where that takes me.
My right knee is still keeping me from enjoying life to the fullest. It is hurting most of the time and is about a 6 or 7 pain level on a scale of 1 to 10. I will continue to ice it today and will try another upper body workout with my 5 pound weights. I am anxious to get back on the treadmill, but am determined to get this knee healed before I do so.
I think I have bitten off more than I can chew and so am giving up on the Chinese Brushwork workshop so that I can continue to work on journaling and watercolors. I also have a few more commitments as far as swaps go. The next swap I am working on is Wacky Packages (3/3), then Whimsical Cats (10/10), and then a collage sheet to take to GR for a meeting in March.
I have to get some house cleaning done today, painful knee or not. I will go slow and stop if it becomes too much. For now, I need a second cup of coffee and to find a good place to put my leg up with an ice pack on said knee. As for you, don't forget to live in the moment!
