Checking in .........

.....sorry for the simple ATC that probably will not show up on the dark BG. I scanned it instead of taking a pic. Lazy...well, no, actually SICK and not up to piddling with it.
I have pre-op clearance, right? Then I get a whopping sinus infection. A week from today is supposed to be *IT* and here I sit like a lump.
This was not how I planned to be spending this week, at all.
Life throws you curve balls and it's either swing or duck!
I got the two collage pieces totally done; they are very nice and pretty much what I wanted. They, of course, took some twist and turns on their own as most of my work does, but the end product is something I am most happy with. So tomorrow, or Friday, I'll try and have them on here.
As for the rest of my day, it's to the couch and hot tea and maybe a bit of knitting or reading in between the snoozing.
And we have no snow......rain-rain-rain. This is the one time in my life I wish I would have had a rain gauge! Thought we would lose the roof last night the wind was so strong! ICK.
Until I am more coherent, verbose, and at least in some capacity to make fun of myself and my decrepitude......
I bid you all the spirit of the season....

Oh Anne, it is beautiful! It has so much texture that it looks like crochet!!! I LoVe it! Snuggle up and get to feeling better.
**kisskiss** Deb

Gayle Pritchard said...

The spirit of the season, indeed! So sorry to hear you have a sinus infection. Now, am anxious to hear what the doc says about postponing...Feel better soon, dear one.

Anne, I am sorry you are not feeling well. Hopefully, it will pass quickly. Actually, I went to bed early last night - felt like crap for some reason - tired, no energy, just not myself. Feeling better this morning after many hours of rest.
The angel ATC is fabulous, Anne. If you ever Etsy it, I MUST purchase - I have been collecting Angel ATCs for several years. It really is beautiful. I love the black and white and all the detail!
Tea and toast....chicken know the drill!! BE WELL!!!
♥ audrey

Marilyn said...

Oh yes, I must agree it looks so pretty & a bit like a crocheted piece!!
I ended up putting the fruit cake together this a.m. & it is in the oven now.... We are still with the high winds & I am crossing my fingers we don't have a power failure as my oven is electric.. aarrgh!
Never the less it smells wonderful here......
I hope you feel better real soon.
Want some snow???? We got about 5".....I was just out shoveling the walkway to the porch as UPS has a scheduled delivery here today!! Santa went to Best Buy & got us a new desk-top, lap-top & netbook for Christmas!!! WooHoo... Wasn't that nice of him??? Actually Santa this year is our sweetheart of a daughter, Connie.....
Gotta' run (well, walk).....
Take care & stay warm!!
Happy Holidays!!

So sorry bout that sinus infection...gotta get well soon.
Glad you know what to do...the couch and hot tea...

Well, we got our first snow...the wind is still terrific too.. glad i am home errands!
It does not look pretty very long here in the city...the plows have main streets clear already...and the salt trucks..
XOXO, gypsy

Tristan Robin Blakeman said...

really lovely atc ... so much detail. I think I hate you. LOL

I'm so sorry you're under the weather again. YOu have had the lousiest luck with health this year!!! Let's hope 2010 is better to you!

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Deborah...thanks---it is on textured paper and has this neat blue BG that does not show up AT ALL.....phooey.
Back to the cellar...yes, I should be sleeping but don't feel like it.


Anne Huskey-Lockard said...


He gave me the meds and seemed to think things would be fine! My BP was up, and today I feel like I'm running fever.....
I am not a happy camper so playing with paper and takes so little to amuse me...


Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hey Audrey,

You just figured out dinner for me! Chicken soup....that's about all that sounds good!
I'll keep you in mind on the angel...I like the white on dark and might have to do another, later.
Much later! ;)


Anne Huskey-Lockard said...


As I write this, it sounds like the siding might blow off the studio, and roof too.
I'll take snow and fruitcake....fruitcake batter is good too! :)


Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Gypsy....I am not even venturing out to the mailbox; that will give DH something to do when he gets in! LOL!!!!


Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Tristan Dear...I hate you too....LOL!!!!!!
This is the same stuff I had at whatever time I got it first. It just never left.
And I'll be damned if I'm going into surgery feeling like this, doc or no doc.....I don't care who I torque off.
Ahem! I feel better now!
I should have photographed that ATC and made prints......hmmmmm.....

Anne......and I don't hate you! :)

Marie S said...

Feel better fast Anne.
I love the angel atc, she is gorgeous.
Stay warm and cozy.
love and hugs.

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hey Marie,

I just got in from an unexpected trip to town----the plastic had blown off my patio doors and it's getting worse here!
What's that??? LOL!


yoborobo said...

Anne - behave yourself! Stop running into town for plastic!!! LOL!! I am so sorry you are sick. The card is lovely, so maybe just sit and stare at it while sipping tea. Stay warm and stay put!! xox Pam

Anna Rosa Designs said...

Hey Anne,
You sound very miserable, you poor lovey.
Thank you, the larger JPEG did come through nicely. I tried to email you again, but it didn't want to go through.
Sounds like you need a few days rest, you must get better before your big operation.
Stay warm and cozy,

We could have sailed a ship on the water we received yesterday. Today it is trying like the dickens to snow. the wind is mighty... blowing right through the walls... or so it feels. I'm sad that your not well again. I had to have a surgery to remove polyps in my nasal passages. Since then, not one sinus infection. Not one. Best thing I did for myself. I'm keeping you in my daily prayers friend. Hugs. Tammy

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...


Have ben wrapped on the couch staring at skeletons......archeology show! LOL!
Gotta keep the Budgie Boys warm!


Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hey Anna,

Glad the JPEG came through and I can't figure out the mail thing....I hate this new mail server (And it hates me too!).
HAve fun with it!!!


Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hey Tammy,

We have gotten a smidge of snow here....just enough to see it but the wind is wicked. My studio is really cold; I'm taking a break from the couch, where I seem to be much happier. HAd to make a little evergreen *tree* with embossed ornaments to tuck in a Christmas card for a friend who is on hard times. This is the first year of his life he has no I made a tiny limb from pine print paper and then wired the ornaments on, put some German glass's kind oof neat!
Oh my....I feel like Dorothy in Kansas before the storm hit! YIKES!!!!

Anne....better go run water in case we lose power.....

Georgina said...

Hey woman...ya heard my 'puter died, but just have a moment to let you know I'm thinking about you and I know today, the 10th, is your birthday...HAPPY F'N BIRTHDAY!!!!! Hope you're having a great day and won't be out of the loop except when I see Miss Daisy, so that won't be till next Monday, so have a great day and weekend!!!

Love ya,

Please take care of you...sinus infections are no fun I know. I finally discovered the use of a saline wash up my nose (yew, gross) and I got through the summer allergies (which always end up in my sinus') relatively unscathed. I'm rather hoping Santa will bring me a neti pot so I can make my own solution & not resort to buying pre-made stuff. If you want more info, let me know & I'll get the brand name of the one I use.
Your angel atc is so elegant!

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hey all,

I'm surviving this....MA, the doc asked me once about a neti pot. I, thanks to an imbecile P.E. teacher, was almost drowned, and cannot get water up the nose. I panic. I flat out told him there was NO WAY that would happen, no matter how hard I might try. Nose spray is even a tough one. So it's Cipro and anything else to loosen the junk! (dynamite would be helpful...)
Thnaks everyone on the ATC!!!


Magpie's Mumblings said...

Anne - I'm claustrophobic so putting 'stuff' up my nose panics me too. After the first few times I got used to it and the benefits far outweigh the fear. I don't like it, but I do it.

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hmmmm......well, I might have to suck it up and try it.
I am a wuss with things like this! HA!
