Not up to par.......

Well, after a surprise trip to visit my Doctor yesterday, I have discovered I do indeed have a sinus infection, which could be part of the reason for my extreme lethargy and pains in the head. When I start dressing like the woman pictured above, I would recommend someone have me committed for observation! (actually, it is a pretty good depiction of how I feel....way out in left field, slightly off in another land, and yes, I'd like those ear covers to filter out any complaints/bad news!)
So I spent the day sleeping and reading, out from allergy meds and getting myself up enough to head to Wabash this afternoon for a show opening at Honeywell that I want to see, then back home and the same routine today. And the killer is it is a beautiful sunny day; I want to be outside working but I know better. There again, those ear-things the woman is wearing could come in handy as it is quite breezy.....
My book of choice yesterday, since I physically could not hold my Einstein tome and did not think I had enough active grey matter to grasp what I was reading, was the Sweet Potato Queens. You don't have to be Southern; just bawdy-sassy to enjoy it! I blitzed through half of it, dozing and laughing. Wild women on the loose.......what a hoot!
That's it for today kiddies; no art content, no intellectual content, I'm not even sure what I have written counts as content but the photo, ahhhhh, that should count for something! (Tristan, do you approve???)
Have a good weekend!

That is a GREAT photo! I have that "look" after an especially tough week at school with teenagers.....the costume would certainly keep them coming to class, just to see what's new...Rest up!!

Wouldn't you just LOOOOOVE to be able to walk out in public on a bad-mood day wearing something like this??? I mean, it says it all!
I'm resting and it is soooo nice. I had forgotten what it was like! ;)

where do you find these? Try enjoying a day off, it is okay to do that you know. You deserve it.

Honestly Jan, I usually am looking for something totally different, wander through image searches and then something weird comes up and I grab it. I think, though, that Tristan is the King of Odd Images! he can beat me hands down..... ;)
I am enjoying the rest.
Wish it happened more often! (just not the sick part...LOL!)

Anne,

I love the "Sweet Potato Queens!" They truly are wild and bawdy. Don't you just love those recipes!!??? They make the "Ya-Ya Sisters" look like saints! Sorry about the sinus infection...very painful and just inconvenient as hell!

Have a great weekend and I'm sure our friend, Bernette is licking her hangover wounds along with her friends today!!! LOL

Abrazos,
Georgina

Hey Girl...Rest and get better. I "read" books on tape for the visually impaired from the state library. I'm off to see if they have "Sweet Potato Queens".

Leslie said...

I love it bawdy-sassy. That describes us to a T. Feel better, woman...

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hey *Ladies*, and perhaps I am using the term loosely....SNARF!!!
yes, bawdy/sassy is GOOD!!!!!
Georgina, it truly DOES make the YA-YAs look like saints (or Sisters at the convent)and I thought that was a pinnacle of Southern-Womanhood when I read it!
Vicki---definitely check for it. If they don't have it, I will set up a weekly *read* session and read it to you, if I can quit laughing long enough. I think it's a girl-thing that would be fun wiith a couple of people and a glass of wine! And Leslie---wish you were closer and we all could sit and enjoy this totally wicked female humor!
I am feeling better after a handful of meds, and----yes----I went out and mowed. Somehow the breeze running in one ear and out the other.....it cleans things out.... ;)
