"Feel like I have been absent... from life and from my studio. Caught Covid from our grandson next door... but slowly eating again.  I had great intentions the two days before I fell ill early on a Wednesday morning. In fact I was at the point of jumping in to work on some new pieces for a show in Denver... and I hope to get somethings drawn off today.  It has been a time of grit and determination. For three days I could not eat because I would throw it all up.  I dropped 7 pounds... and now I am trying to regain some back but not eating healthy as I normally do. Something about taste buds trying to work again! My poor hubby came down with it just as I was coming out of it all. The illness was three packed days...but then it took three more days to be able to stand and do anything small... and another three days to be able to clean house!  This morning I walked 1.5 miles at 4 mph... hope in the next few days to be up to 3 miles again.   My direction to you... stay away from 'kids' in early elementary school right now!  His family all had it too!"


This is usually the time of year I try to paint a few fun hearts, so this morning I began working on a few of them for fun.   Still torn between Oil and Acrylics for somethings!  The heart in the photo above is an oil heart.  

John Ford Coley, Terry's first cousin, is performing in Arlington this evening. Morgan and Kelly are going but we are not. Night time brings us both to our knees in early prayer and early bed on this tail end of recovery.  Love JFC so much. He playin Niagara Falls last night.  Hoping we can see him soon.  Maybe at a family reunion. They did the last one on my birthday and we did not make to the farm to see everyone. 

John Ford is FULL OF HEART!!!  Here is an old one for you....  What can I do with this broken heart?   Not sure I have heard it very often.  Click on the photo below to hear the Broken Heart older song!   MY true favorite song is HERE. I'm not talking about Moving In....

Missing you JCF!  Wish we were there with you.
