I am kicking myself because I was all excited about videotaping the bird family, and this morning, they had flown the coop. Literally. The whole family has departed. It happens like that every year, but I really thought I had a couple more days left, but sadly, not.
Oh well, there’s always next year.
My good friend, Rebecca, from pegstamps.com, sent me their new stamp sets. I don’t know I’ve done to deserve such a good friend, but I just love her and her generosity. I really wanted to make a card using the sets, so decided today was the day. Actually, I’d tried to make a card yesterday, but it was terrible, and I had to delete the video. Today’s card took several hours, but isn’t as nice as I wanted it to be, but far better than yesterday’s card. I think I’m struggling because my arthritis is in a flare, and when that happens, I have a difficult time thinking and coming up with ideas that I like. Basically I’m in a fog. I started on a burst of prednisone, (that’s when you take 40 mg, then the next day 30 mg, then the next 20 mg, etc.) and it’s supposed to help take me out of flares. It works, but the drug makes my face a bright pink, almost purple color for the first few days, and it’s not only attractive, but kind of uncomfortable, as it’s as hot as it is red.
I started the medicine last night, so I’m hoping by tomorrow I start to feel a little bit better. I’m crossing my fingers that I do, because when I’m in a flare, I’m not really very effective, and seriously frustrated.
