Re: As the Oily Rag Burns..... February 2018

Good Morning Oilycats!!!

Well, I have to hang that blind installed this morning, because I unboxed it last night and all of the bits and pieces are all over the library!

I have to go into town and get Mia's medicine for her asthma, but other than that, I am going to try and not let anything distract me from painting later today.

Marcia, Mia has asthma?? How often do you have to give her meds? Tablet or the same kind humans (me) take?
Becca, hi!

Re: As the Oily Rag Burns..... February 2018

Mia gets 25ml of liquid prednisone every other day. I am thinking of changing to an inhaler, because the prednisone is a steroid and I think she is gaining weight. It is easier to administer the liquid though, which is good when someone else is taking care of her but a friend recommends the inhaler. It sounds strange, but once they get used to breathing into the mask and realize it helps, they don't mind it.

Painting is a no go today. BF got a minor injury at a job about 60 miles away, and has to go back to that urgent care for the followup. There is a trader joe's nearby, and I need a few things from there, and also a nursery that specializes in desert plants, so ROAD TRIP!

We are leaving as soon as we get the blind hung in the library.

A dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight,

and his punishment is that he sees the dawn

before the rest of the world.

Love the Oscar Wilde quote in your latest, Becca!

Hmm, we got all our tax stuff in January, and I don't remember ever getting it that early. It's probably a lot easier to get it done fast rather than wait until the deadline.

One of the good things about being a bookkeeper is at least I keep my paperwork organized throughout the year, so once I have all of my forms, I can file. The difficulty is that one form does not reach me until after corporate returns are filed in March, so I often have to file an extension, because my tax preparer has too many clients ahead of me to file mine in time.

Well, the blind is up!

This is going to make a huge difference in the lighting.

Re: As the Oily Rag Burns..... February 2018

I hit submit before I meant to.

Becca, I love the Oscar Wilde quote. Very foreboding.

The trip to La Quinta was semi succesful. While bf was at his appointment, I went to Lowe's and World Market for a few general things I needed and a few things I can't get where I live.

La Quinta is an incredibly wealthy enclave. The Lowes there has an enornmous waterfall on the front of the building with life size, cast bronze eagles fishing in it.


We made it to the nursery, but I had to be back by 4:30, so we didn't really have time to pick out any trees, the place is huge. BF suggested that we go back today. Another painting day delayed, or maybe not, if we get an early enough start.

thanks Marcia and Nancy...

Marcia did you get your plants?

Nancy, is your painting going to be dry in time?

Re: As the Oily Rag Burns..... February 2018

Yes, Becca! We've had some very dry weather, which helped - the painting is hanging in the gallery now for the third day.

Now I'm trying to think of what to paint in February. My daughter's birthday was yesterday and I sent her three books for her Kindle, since we seem to share the same taste in books. I wonder if her colleagues at the hospital tease her about being a groundhog.

My son's birthday is March 2, so my Dad, who was also born on March 2, used to tell me that it was a family trend to have babies born on the second day of the month!
