Try To Find Some Balance...

Do you ever feel as if you just have too many things going, and that something was just going to have to come to a screeching halt so you can jump off the merry-go-round or die of centrifugal force?

For the past week I've had an on-and-off again ear ache...something that is new to me. I wasn't concerned as I didn't really think I was going to go deaf. But finally, it got so bad I went to the doctor. I always hate having doctors look in my ears - I'm so afraid that the q-tip missed something and my mother is going to die of humiliation.
It turns out that I have a nasty ear infection, requiring three medications. One of them is eardrops. I've never had eardrops before. I find them most unpleasant. There is one positive thing about it, however; with all the antibiotics, my skin is porcelain clear. Who knew there could be an upside to painful ear aches?...although, I guess this could be an example of 'no pain no gain.' I asked the doctor what could have caused it, so I could avoid it in the future. He asked if I swim (which I do at the gym), because public pools are a major reason for ear infections. So, from now on, I'm the one wearing ear plugs. I'm sure I'll be the only one not bathing with my ears au naturel - but I'm not going through this again!
And I have been busy trying to get some work finished up. I've created a few tussie mussies for my Etsy shop and a teensy tiny 4" square minature Marie Antoinette theatre. I got inspired by Joy and Gabriella and their week-long 'toinette fete - not that it takes much to get me excited about making something Marie-inspired! I will post pictures later ... my camera has died and I must recharge the battery.

Some friends have asked us to go camping...which is something I used to love to do! However, in my dotage, I find that my idea of roughing it is not having turn-down service. Now, if I could count on our campground looking something like this little bohemian artists' campout, I might very well change my mind. However, I believe it's far more likely that our site would be Coleman-inspired.

I'm going to leave you with this wonderful photo I found. I will bet that after John Michael left town to live in New York, the church Christmas pageants were just never the same.

Okay - make something beautiful - or even something ordinary to get your juices flowing! Just make something!
