Morning fellow Scumblers! Welcome to this week's edition of job talk, family talk, pet talk, kid talk, and all the other subjects that make up our everyday lives.

Last week we had fun posting old pictures of ourselves. It was so much fun that it turned into a thread all by it's self!

I am finally getting over this intestinal bug I have had. Not totally myself yet, but getting there!
Weather is typical Ohio. Yesterday was warm and sunny, today is cold and wet! Yuck.

My oldest daughter and family are in Florida on vacation, so I am minus grandchildren all week!
So, I am going to drive up to Columbus on Wednesday and have lunch with my youngest daughter. I don't see her often enough.
I am going dog training one day with my trainer. We are getting ready for our annual hunt test at the end of April. My Kansas has to be ready!
And I am going to try to get more painting in. Probably by the end of the week, it won't have felt like a vacation!

Ugh, what's going on with the intestinal bugs lately? I was violently ill on Friday night and queasy most of Saturday. It was really bad timing because I was trying to get ready for a seminar talk at another university, which was today. It was really fun and I think I did a good job, but I'm glad it's over.

And now I have time to paint. Which is what I'll be doing tomorrow afternoon and evening. :D

:wave: Hi, Beth and Kate!

Is spring...or lack thereof...bugging you? :lol: Sorry about that, I just had to say it! I do hope that you both are feeling better and may the sun shine on you!:heart:

Spring...that was one day last week! Blink and you miss it here in Wisconsin!:lol: We awakened to snow Sunday morning! :o
But, it is all gone by now! It is sort of cool and windy here, but not bad.
It is spring election day here, so we went to do our duty and voted early this morning. :angel:

The kids are out of school here for "Spring Break" this week, so tomorrow I spending the day with my granddaughter. :clap: We'll do some shopping, have lunch, then hit a book shop and an art store! :heart: She will be going to France for three weeks this summer with her high school French class and wil spend on week of it with a French family in Dinan, France. So part of what we will do is a little clothes shopping for that trip! Funny thing about her staying in Dinan: My father was half Irish, but in his mother's family he had quite a lot of English ancestry. In my genealogy studies, I found we are descended from the Dinhan/Denhan/Dinan family of England (mainly in Devon and Cornwall) and they came over from France to England with old "Willie the Conquerer". Our Dinans came with him and were...yes, you guessed it: from Dinan, France!
Talk about "going home!" :lol:

There is a tree trunk outside the window of my study that is just calling me to paint it! It is a tall evergreen with rough bark, branch scars and lovely shadow/sunlight patterns! Have to do it!:heart:
So...clean the bathroom?, mop the kitchen floor?.....or paint...PAINT!:D

Get Dusty! Have a great week!

I feel for you guys with the intestinal bugs. Those are the worst! i live with something similar on a daily basis as I have IBS to go along with all the other illnesses and syndromes etc. Anyway, I hope you both recover fully and quickly.
Kate, the pics of the puppies last week were so adorable. They are so roly poly:) It reminds me of when we got our black lab MacKenzie. Dang I loved that dog. But, she and our other two dogs were sort of casualties of my divorce in 2002. My ex had them and then his new wife already had three big dogs and so I got them for awhile and when we had the hobby farm it worked out great, but then we had to move so we had to find homes for them. The two big dogs went to a friend of my ex's wife who spoils them rotten although now MacKenzie is the only one left as the Elkhound died of cancer poor thing. I still miss them both. I had a Sheltie at the time as well but Chris seemed allergic to her so I had to give her back to the lady I had bought her from. At least I know they all went to good homes. They become part of the family and it is so hard to say goodbye to them. someday if circumstances are right I would love to get another lab. To me they are the perfect dogs. Except for that tail--I always had bruises on my legs:) But so darn loving and goofy! Right now I have a little(8#) Chinese Crested Powderpuff. She has some neurological issues. She came from a puppy mill and those dogs were treated horribly(this all came out two years later) So, she is somewhat neurotic, walks in circles to the right, and has seizures. But she loves me and she is a great companion. Unfortunately she still barks at Chris when he comes in the room or when he comes home. She has a weird thing with him. She wants his approval, and is somewhat afraid of him even though we have had her for almost three years now. It really drives him nuts. They got closer when we lived in the motorhome, but now that we live in a 3 bedroom house with all this room she has gone back t not quite trusting him. sigh. But, this breed does usually latch on to one of the caretakers more than the other one and she is just doing this to the extreme. She lights up my life though which is why Chris puts up with being rejected by her so much.
Well, enough dog talk. I will be back later with more about me and my week. Chris is coming home though so I'm very happy! He cut his time away short. It was just too much time away from each other.

Sara, that sounds like a description of Ari with other people in many households I've lived in. He got clingy. Siamese do that. Then on top of it he decided in his feline way that he was my personal bodyguard. He had good judgement on ex-housemates though, the ones he would get the nastiest with turned out to be the ones that became abusive.

Once we moved here Kitten put in the time and effort to make friends with him. He liked Karl right off. He's settled in and after the first year decided that yes, he could manage to take care of an entire family along with me and the other family members are now also his people. He still doesn't like most strangers though.

So my daughter got Gemini the world's friendliest cat in order to make up for that, and Ari started becoming happier and more playful. He really missed having a cat friend. They do become real family members. I think it's natural. I have watched cats adopt mice, birds, ferrets, monkeys, anything as long as it learns to behave like a cat. Dogs of course have a social order that fits neatly into the human social order and always has.

So their legal status is one thing as property but the reality is that they become intimate family members. I'm as attached to Ari as he is to me. That little guy has kept me sane through a lot of troubles and even on the worst mornings when I wake up and he's curled up next to me purring, it breaks the day toward being a good one.

I'm loved by a cat. Things are going to be all right.

I'm still waiting for the Blick package with my Pan Pastels, new sketchbooks and Wallis paper. I found the long lost erasing shield after I ordered its replacement, but I've decided having an extra is a good thing and will stash it in a different obvious place so that I can always find one.

Back on the 3d, I did something stupid and did laundry on a day my back was telling me not to do anything physical. I'm still paying for that, having forgotten that bending over to pick things up is about the worst thing I can do to my back in that state. Front loading laundry machines involve bending over. But it's such an easy motion. It's no big deal.

Except after all these years you'd think I'd have learned to pay attention to that tightness that says Don't Do It, Go Sit Still.

This is the fourth day since I was stupid and I am swearing off laundry or anything else on Bad Back Days. I really need to pay attention to that. It's dumb and I brought it on myself.

I feel for everyone who got the flu/intestinal bug. I hate that and have been lucky so far -- used to get trouble all the time until my daughter took over with the food and her stealth nutrition. But I don't catch things often because I don't go out much.

Our pets really do become our family, don't they? I worry over each and every one. Especially my breeders and my athletes! Whitney is my independent girl, always trying to sneak the birthing in before I know. Soleil and Di are more clingy and want mom there, "just in case", and for moral support.
Harry is my hard charger. He LOVES the hunt tests and the training that goes into it, but last year he found himself on crate and house rest because he rolled himself going after the duck and pulled his shoulder!
Remi is more easy going with his marks. He loves it too, just doesn't tear up ground to get there!
Like my children, they are all different and have different needs.

Robert, reading about your cats sounds so like me with my dogs! Take it easy on that back!

Sara, you sound so happy! The joy in your man shines through all the health issues.

Lynn, can you say graceful?! LOL, I know it isn't really funny! I worry about my daughter's cats tripping me on the basement stairs as I come up and down. They are so fast!

Elsie, it is cold and nasty here, just not a bunch of snow. It has flurried for 2 days though, and I am so ready for warm weather!

04-07-2009, 10:30 PM
hi im back from off the couch.lol katherine :p but it WAS gracefull. rothflmao .you should have seen it it. one old guy almost 17,who wont move.little miss pris,who really doesnt care that her tail has been stepped on 100 x already and you just cant shove the old guy out of the way and i was coming around the corner.it was a pileup. lizzie is only 11/2 years old and is in that winding stage around the the legs. but true(i think robert said about waking up and having her purr beside me)makes it all worth it.
i miss our family lab everyday and my horses too.i havent touched a horse painting in years,it just feels odd.maybe the next painting. im still mulling over my latest lighthouse,if im going to add color or not or leave it b&w.i think ill adjust the clouds they look like twisters!!scary. its so weird what you see when you look at it on the computer.well gotta rinse out my haircolor, hopefully its not anything shocking.or green lol.later...lynne

Hi Kate and Elsie and anyone else here on Soft Pastels who knows me. Thought I had better up date you with what is happening these days. I'm still a regular over in Watercolour. Well my health this year has continued to deteriorate to the extent that following some routine blood tests I got a phone call from the surgery to come and see the Dr. This was last Friday morning, quite a few of my tests were seriously abnormal which to cut a long story short landed me in hospital where I had a 2 Unit Blood Transfusion overnight. I've since had multitudes of tests (won't go into detail and bore you all), they are not sure if it is a disease Flare Up or something more serious going on. Will let you all know when I have more information.

Pets are so important in our lives, I think they keep us grounded and they give us so much unconditional love too.

Bumped into Diane Ponting over in Watercolour the other day and I said I would come to you guys and visit. Hubby brought his laptop into the hospital for me with his Mobile Internet Connection so that I could keep intouch with all my friends (and extended Family) here on WetCanvas.

Anyway it is midnight so I had better put this away and go to bed.

Take Care
Lots of Love Carolynn :):):heart::heart::heart::heart::wave::thumbsup:

I'm sorry that you have ended up in the hospital. How long do you think you will be there? I'm keeping you in my thoughts and prayers! Please keep us posted.

Take care,
Sara

Well lets see to continue where I left off...Chris will be home later today. He only slept for a couple of hours pulled off the road. When he sets his mind to getting home he usually just goes for it and gets very little sleep on the road. It will be sooo good to see him.
As for pets, Callie is like a cat/dog. She does so many cat like things but still is a dog at heart. Right now she is curled up next to me on the bed. I'm on my laptop.
I got my order from Dakota yesterday. That was quick! I ordered some colorfix primer as well as the golden fine pumice gel and some pumice. I also ordered gatorfoam to use the primers on and some Richeson boards and Uart boards and some LaCarte paper as I've never tried any of these supports. I also got a large roll of glassine so now I can protect my paintings the right way. Now to just feel well enough to paint. Yesterday was spent mostly in bed. My stomach and head felt bad. Not horrible, but bad enough to want to be in bed. Hopefully today I will be able to get some painting done. I think I will try the LaCarte first. I have my french easel set up in the other bedroom on the 2nd floor as the views are great from there. It is usually too windy to set it up outside and today is no exception. I woke up to the wind howling. I have a few chores to do like change the bedding/wash bedding and clean out some of the "science projects" from the refrigerator before Chris gets home. In this household I'm the messy one and the one that lets things turn green in the fridge. I have been putting off cleaning one of these experiments up and will need to keep my nose plugged while doing it, its a container of cooked brussel sprouts that has been in there way too long. hehehe gross. And one of the reasons Chris hates to buy too many veggies--they often end up like this...LOL! Well I hope you all can find some time to paint during the remainder of this week and I hope everyone who celebrates Easter has a happy one:)

Carolynn, I feel for you. Oww. That bites. I hate hospitals. Hope you come out of it fast with a minimum of trouble.

I'm finally beginning to get over throwing my back. It's just time. I never manage to remember that bending over and getting up again are what does it -- that just seems so stupid in retrospect. Every single time. Someone ought to put a line of police tape over my laundry pile. lol

It seems like a lot of people are coming down with things or having health problems of one kind or another. What is it, the Spring weather is rotten for everyone and it's not just a me thing?

Ari sheds many Cat Hairs of Inspiration for everyone. He is blowing his coat and great fluffy tufts of pale fur are flying everywhere as he romps around the house. I've got the itch to paint and today I've got the Pans to do it with. Don't know if I'll stick to Pans throughout or do some sticks into it too, but I know that I've been waiting way too long to get started.

Must remember to grab the paper towels and put them on the table first, also to have a wet towel handy.

Had a "cat crash" a few days ago myself! Hubby had "Kat" before I moved in with him. She's Daddy's girl and I'm just the evil, wicked step mother most of the time, unless I have treats for her. lol She was laying on the floor on the way to the kitchen. As I was about to plant my left foot to take the turn into the kitchen, she decided she had to run away. Well, she ran righ smack, head first, into my left shin, wrapped her front paws around my leg, then bounced off backwards! Shook her head, looked at me like she was going to tear me up, then ran away!!! Man, if her head hurt as bad as my shin, I kinda feel sorry for her!! lol Kinda....:p Hubby helped get her and litter mates out from under someone's house, so we're assuming she's a bit of a wild one. When she goes into "zoom zoom" mode, as we call it, she literally zooms around the house, jumping up the walls and sometimes missing her jumps and crashing into something. I call her Squirrely Lou!! But when she's feeling loveable, she really is and when she wants to play she can be lethal with those claws! She's definitely not a lap cat, but she's always amusing and I don't know what we'd do without her. :cat:

Carolyn, dear, I am so sorry to hear that you are in the hospital. I hope your stay is short and the diagnosis something you can live with. We miss you around here. Seems I have very little time to explore most of the other forums.

Watch out for those kitties, folks!

I spent the afternoon and evening with my youngest daughter yesterday.
She is expecting her second child in September. Anyway, we had a late lunch at Olive Garden and then hit a few shops nearby. It was a very nice time. I don't get to see her near as much as I would like. Getting to see my little grandson, Owen was a treat. His dad had picked him up early from daycare so Grandma could visit!

Thankyou for all the Well Wishes, they are much appreciated.

Well the good news is they managed to get my Lung CT Scan done today and the Cardiologist came to see me late this afternoon. The Plan now is I can go home tomorrow morning. My GP is to monitor my bloods on a regular basis. I am to phone my Liver Specialist after Easter and find out the date and where to go for my Liver Biopsy, I will have to work on getting my clotting factors at the correct level to make the procedure a little safer. I also have to contact my Cardioligist to get him to review me, and the hospital Cardioligist has suggested that he do an Excercise ECG, and Echo and a Cardiac Catheter.
The liver may do a couple of scopes, one from each end so to speak :lol:.

I'll get to try out my New Watercolour Brushes out soon now. :clap:

I hope everyone here is well, I'm going to go and have a look around your Gallery before signing off and going to bed.

Take Care
Lots of Love Carolynn :):):heart::heart::heart::thumbsup::wave:

Carolynn, so sorry for all the health issues. :( Also for everyone suffering intestinal bugs. Boy do I hate them! I had to go back to last week's scumble to see the photos of everyone when younger. So cute. I love the ones being used as avatars too.

And Kate, those puppy pics are just darling. I want to snuggle and cuddle all of them, in one big heap. Just too too cute.

My biggest news this week is that I found out my coming grandchild (due in August) is a *boy*. My daughter-in-law is thrilled as she loathes pink, vows never to dress a daughter in pink, and was worried about pink gifts she might receive. But right now her pink worries are over. :D

My son (who got laid off from his job in December) began working this week. That's the good news. The bad news is that it's for a brand-new start-up company so he does not get any actual salary right now, only stock options. But he figures if the company succeeds he should make out well, and even if it does not it's a great experience and would look better on his resume than a year of being chief cook and house-husband.

I'm doing well, feeling good. Trying to paint more now that the light is longer and I have some decent natural light still in the evening when I get home from work.

To continue last week's thread, here is a picture of me at age 11 Tomboy that I was I *hated* to wear dresses and never wanted to be photographed in them. Well actually about only difference between then and now is that then I *had* to wear dresses to school, church, etc. so I had them. But today I don't own any dresses at all and never wear them! :

Glad to hear you got through with the lung CT, Carolynn, and are on your way with the rest of it. I hope it clears up soon and doesn't take anything too drastic to get back in shape.

Debbie, you look like a cool kid. Cute photo of your grandson. I got ultrasounds of my grand kids from Kitten both times, it was great. They are much bigger now of course.

Gabriel is now getting much better at using the potty, days of diapering are numbered. I think we're all ready for his new independence.

I'm still at the resting-up stage from the dumb thing I did to my back but it hurts a lot less -- making this the dangerous point when I could do something stupid again without realizing it. I'm taking it easy and focusing on art and resting up.

OK Guys, :wave::wave:

I am now at home, it is great to be back in my own environment and the dogs were really pleased to see me as well. :clap:

It's been quite a warm day for Autumn, the temps reached 35 Degrees C. Every shop is closed being Good Friday so had to get milk from the Service Station, expensive venture. I'll try to plan some meals for the next few days and do some shopping tomorrow.

My Annual Leave actually is complete after this Easter Long Weekend, so I will book off on Sick Leave. My first shift after leave was to be 18th and 19th April then days off. I think it will be sensible to take the time off until we have some of these investigations done and hopefully be able improve things somewhat. I have income insurance (must remember to upgrade my premiums soon also as we have had some pay rises since I last adjusted it. It kicks in after 2 weeks and covers 85% of pre tax income. The best thing I ever did, I took it out in June 1992 as it sounded like a great deal and got seriously ill Dec 1992 which was the start of this Roller Coaster Ride so to speak.

Debbie, Love the picture of when you were younger I must have a look and find one of me, I know I have one as we had a baby photo competition at work at the end of last year and my parents sent me some over. Great that you have a Grandson on the way. One of our girls left the unit earlier this year and knew she was having a girl, the amount of pink things she got was amazing, mind you she loves pink. :thumbsup:

I hope everyone here has a really great Easter and that if you are on the road Please be careful. Glad to see everyone here appears to be well. :)

Sara, I must PM you sometime soon and have a chat with you as I believe you also have health issues. I just love how everyone here on WC are so wonderfully warm and caring. It makes me feel like I am a part of one big Extended Family, it is so great. Some days I really feel I have to push myself to get up and do things around the place, I hate lying around. Just before I was admitted, a parcel of New Water Colour Brushes arrived which I didn't get a chance to try out so I am looking forward to wetting them in the near future. If the temps drop it will be nice to sit outside under the patio and paint. :)

Everyone, Take Care and Keep Safe. I will try to keep you up to date with what is going on and what the expected outcome is going to be. I need to be as positive as I ever can be this round it seems.

Lots of Love Carolynn :):):heart::heart::heart::wave::thumbsup::clap:

Carolyn: Yippy!:clap: :clap: :clap: Welcome home!:heart:
Hospitals are fine when you need them, but home always feels better!
Happy Easter!
Take it easy and don't overdo! Glad you have the insurance to help in the near future! Dealing with work, medical needs etc. can be tricky!
Get out those new brushes a big pot of water and dip them in! The moment of dipping in a brand new brush and seeing it come out of the water is golden! Enjoy!:thumbsup:


Oh, Debbie, seeing the photo of the younger you and then your grandson in his prebirth growth stage, then Carolyn's comments about the pink, I just have to tell you about what happened in our family. My cousin's daughter was expecting a baby "girl". Since she had two sons already, everyone was very excited and grandmother, aunts etc. all rushed out and many cute little dresses were purchased. Yes, you guessed it, in spite of those ultra-sound photos, a bouncing baby boy was given birth to, welcomed and loved. But, as my cousin said, many dresses were quietly returned to shops in Altoona, PA the next day! :lol:

Hi all,

I haven't posted much lately - too busy painting; but I thought some of you might like to see these photos...

These were taken on Prince Edward Island near my house. The winter was long and cold but spring is slowly arriving. On Wednesday, the harbour of my little village was free of ice. I was very surprised, yesterday, to look out the window and see the harbour full of ice. The wind had blown in ice floes from the sea and they were stranded when the tide went out. There was a lot of noise as the ice floes were crashing and breaking up.

Today, they're mostly gone!

Wendell, wow! These are fantastic! Thank you. They're gorgeous. I love the way you caught all the shapes of those ice formations -- it has to be wonderful living somewhere near the sea to see these things all the time and paint them. That tall chunk of ice is a trip, it looks like a sea fan frozen and pulled out of the water.

Looks like you and your dog had fun playing on the ice.

Carolynn, congratulations on getting home! Wet those brushes, gal! Have fun with them. Revel in canine company and paint something. You'll get better so much faster outside of a hospital. I always do.

Today my hip was bothering me, probably a combination of exertion and weather since it was worse than yesterday. So I curled up in my chair after sleeping in very late. Ari came up and laid down on my hip and the arm of my chair, mostly on my hip, and in two hours of Purring Cat and Hot Fuzzy Cat Tummy treatment, the pain went away and my mobility was restored.

I made much of him for doing this of course. My cat is so good at taking the ache right out of my bones, it amazes me. No heating pad can come close to the warmth of a real, loving cat on the painful areas.

HAPPY EASTER TO ALL!! Hope it is a beautiful day wherever you are.

We are heading to the in-laws for dinner. I have much to be grateful for. My oldest daughter and her family made the long drive home from their Florida vacation safely. I always worry while they are gone.
and they came home to a special event. One of their cats gave birth to 6 kittens the night before they arrived home! The kids are over the moon!

LOL...you're quite welcome. I couldn't resist it...nor the bunny either. Although I don't have a chocolate bunny this year. But there is some chocolate here nonetheless. Hubby and I are both diabetic, but we just HAVE to have a goodie once in a while! Glad it made you laugh. :lol:
