Falling Down and Seed Pod

HI! Monday I took Tai Chi. It was my first time and I enjoyed it. I had to get over the fact that my natural grace is in my paintbrush and not my exercise ability, that's for sure. Ha ha.

 I came home feeling good and went to put stale corn chips out for the squirrels and birds and fell./slipped... Down the back steps. Yes. I told you natural grace is where? OH it hurt. Where  you say-- my right leg truly went at an angle I thought only frogs could do.. and I could go on but you get the idea...So I've been grumpy as can be and hobbling around, sore, but I'm fine. no worries. Just letting you know where I've been..

 Today I was growling at the watercolor paper and saw a seed pod  I brought in last week, so I painted it just now and put 2 tiny hummingbird feathers to the right of it. I used my iridescent paint for the seeds and feathers as they both were shining.

 I'm going to go read awhile. Do you have a heating pack? I think everyone needs one. Take a pillow case put inside it ,3 cups of inexpensive dried rice, you may add herbs that smell good if you like or not. Tie the opening of the pillowcase into a knot and zap for 2 minutes in the microwave. Test before you use this.. It could burn you-- so make sure it's not too hot. then place the warm bag anywhere it hurts.not on bare skin..I need to get busy and paint.I''ll rest first. Talk to you soon.love,Diana

  2. Oh Diana, I thought I was the most fallingist person around,!!
    I know just how that feels , I've fallen in every imaginable ways, and have broken a few bones to prove it.. Thank goodness you didn't (I hope ) do that. !
    Taking a cue from you I've been painting just about every day.. today I've done a flamingo, and will do another... different angle of course .. Your right about picking up that brush every day.. I seem to be flowing , not that a sunflower and a flamingo is flowing, but you know what I mean... LOL !
    Take care of that leg.. hugs, BJ

  7. I've fallen down stairs before and you are right. It does hurt! Hope today finds you feeling better but I suspect you will be more sore today and possibly tomorrow as well. The little seed pod is delightful!
