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

Hi Annie!!!

Marcia...thank you for looking that up...interesting...and I'm flattered you see me in the description... ....

the linden tea sounds great and good for the "warning"...I tried drinking oolong regularly for a while and had bad side effects with it...lowered my blood sugar to dangerous levels...so always good to research such things...

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

Marcia, I was interested in your tea until I saw the thing about blood pressure and/or heart probs. So I think I will stick to my own tea; Cosey Chamomile herbal tea.

Annie, I'm so pleased to hear that you came through the flu - it's really rugged this year. After nagging Himself often to get his flu and pneumonia shot, he finally told me that he did get it a week ago.

My painting is pretty much finished; I just have a few helmet details and some richer color contrasts to go. I'm hoping to get it finished by this coming week, so I'll have some drying time to get it into the February show. And I hope I can get a good frame for it.

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

Good Morning Oilycats!!!

Nancy, I was thinking of you regarding issues with the tea. Chamomile is good too, they are very similar in taste.

Congrats on getting the painting finished in time for it to dry, and good luck with finding the right frame.

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

Thanks for the encouraging words, Nancy and Marcia, but I guess I spoke too soon about being recovered. This morning I woke up with an icky, drippy, sneezy cold and draggy feeling, which is exactly how the flu started off for me weeks ago. I'm praying that I became immune when I got the flu back then and that it's just a coincidence that I have the same symptoms now. I don't have any Linden for tea, but I'm going to have some citrus and hope that will help. So once again, even though I planned that today was to be a painting day, the painting gods are working against me.

Nance, congrats on the wrap up of your painting. I know you've worked on it for a while and am glad it'll be ready for the show. I want to see a photo of it too! I hope you can get it posted.

Annie, how awful! Do you suppose that it's yet a different strain of flu? Please take good care of yourself and stay warm!

Wow, Becca! Dreams do come true when you put all the effort you can into them. Your trip to Vancouver has been postponed for so long that I know you'll fall in love with it again when you get there February 18!

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

Nancy and Becca, thanks for the good wishes.

I looked it up and it is possible for someone to get the flu twice in one season if there's more than one strain going around.

Nancy, I'm going to have to listen more carefully to you! You told me to get a flu shot even though I had already had it, but I kept putting it off. I'll listen to you from now on. When you mentioned keeping myself warm, I went for my wooly socks. Still hoping that it's just a bad cold, I was just starting to catch up from the early bout of the flu...

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

Good Morning Oilycats!!!

Oh Annie, sorry to hear you have taken ill again, I hope it is a kinder bug and you are over it quickly.

I hope Pearl is being a good nurse.

Becca, it must be hard closing the chapter on this one. At least it doesn't keep you from taking visits like you said, and there are always options like vacation rentals, home swaps, etc., for longer stays. Once it is concluded, you will be off on new adventures!

I have an emial in my drafts folder, informing Boss from Hell that I am no longer going to be able to do his books after March. I am just waiting for an answer to a question I sent to an accounting firm that I am going to recommend to him. My only concern is not being able to make up for the lost income, but I have a new, albeit small, revenue stream coming in from the witch doctor, and many projects that I believe would be lucrative, if I only had time to pursue them.

Hopefully, in 3 months time, I will be wondering why I didn't do this ages ago.
