after 7 weeks of intense therapy, pain and frustration, stu has had a little bit of a break-through with his right knee (the left one has been progressing well). although he has been becoming much more independent - driving, hiking, etc. the flexion in that knee just seemed at a standstill until yesterday. so we are hopeful that he won’t need the forced manipulation procedure after all.
|working in the house - it's not pretty!|
finally, the studio is coming along and is almost finished! another frustrating situation as we couldn’t figure out why it was leaking, but it looks like we finally solved the problem and have been steadily re-building for the last couple of weeks. soon i should be able to move back in and get my living room and bedroom back to normal. Yippee!
my one year of working with the girls through the grant for the “inside out” project has concluded. it has been a learning experience for all of us in a big way. i am more convinced than ever that anyone can do and benefit from art journaling. and since i am short on my hours toward the grant, i will have another chance to put that into practice. i will soon be teaching a free art journaling class at Artbeat on Main Street.
i’ve been able to put together some new mixed media pieces and have sold quite a few as well. that will all get a lot easier once i’m back in the studio!
i do have a new word for the year…. but saving that for the next post. thanks for hanging with me through this time and for stopping by!
