hummigbirds

























I’ve been sick this last week. Some respitory thing, which is annoying, but more annoying is how tired I’ve been. Like go to bed at 9pm tired. And I wake up tired. And I’m tired in the middle of the day so I need a nap tired.

But I think I’m finally getting better and have been trying to speed along my recovery.

Yesterday I worked out for 16 min on my wii fit. Today I tried to drink a lot of water. Right now I’m eating a salad for dinner.

When I’m not feeling well I crave heavy, bloating foods, you know, comfort food. Pizza, meatloaf, mashed potatoes, and lots of it, forget normal portions. After the enormous lunch I ate, I figured a salad was on the menu.

I have to say, I am not enjoying it very much. Hopefully my body will appreciate all the extra nutrients and not having to digest a bunch of red meat and repay me by giving me a little burst of energy.

This painting was a bright spot in my day yesterday.

Those eyes are so clear and focused! It looks like she's leaning in to hear the hummingbird. :)

Love this new collage!

Happy to hear you are feeling better! Do I understand about comfort food and illness! And also, it is funny but I too have been feeling tired so has my husband. I told him we need to change our eating habits. Vegetarianism is sounding really good to me.

So a continued and quick recovery!

Thanks for the beautiful art!

Thanks!
I am feeling better. Last night when I got home from class I felt great, so the salad must have worked :)

Charming post and painting. Even with your youth, vim and vigor, sometimes it's helpful to just slow down. Stay well.
