Checking In

Some Down Time Needed
Some Down Time Needed

It is Saturday morning and time for some coffee and run through my blog roll and to let you know life’s twists and turns are still happening but trying to find silver linings all the same.

Mom’s surgery to fuse her leg will be next Wednesday from what she told me about her meeting with surgeon it will be 3 to 4 hours under sedation as they place a rod from her hip down the leg to her ankle wonder how they will account for the inches in height each year 😦  yes I am always left with these type of questions as it is my brother and sister in law that are handling all of moms affairs. I had no car for 2 years so hard to take her to and from constant appointments.

I had a shocking call as well just before the fourth seems I have not heard from my stepson for 2 years and in that time he was addicted to Heroin.  What happened to meting friends for some pizza and beer 😦 the call I received was to let me know he had overdosed and was gone.  Just 42.  Kind of old I thought for such heavy drug use but seems it is all the rage which yes which has me enraged at societies who do nothing to stop the influx of poison on it’s people sort of as if they have the opposite plan 😦  He was laid to rest two days ago no longer will he suffer with feeling so useless and lost that a drug of this caliber could make him feel whole. RIP Jimmy how I wish you were still a little boy.

I still take photos and paint but with all that has been going on it has become somewhat forced as a way to walk away and chill.  I like when it is fun and this has not been a god run on fun.

I did enter 2 of my Watercolors in a Themed Art Show “Coastal  New England” at Seacoast Art Association just to try one out 🙂  I would rather sell each piece for $45.00 and let the buyer mat and frame to their liking.  They will hang till Aug.1st with an Artist Reception on Friday,  the 17th though not sure how my mom will come through surgery so I will not plan on attending unless all goes well.

Hope you are all doing better than me man has it been a rough stretch.

Stay safe and see you soon!
