Well good morning world

I haven't been blogging much as we were so busy setting up our updated shop here in the valley. My studio is no more. I have gratefully turned it over to the upvamping of our shop. This move has been extremely good on both ends. The studio is now the office for our repair intake and my smaller studio/office is in the upstairs of the house.

Salt and Pepper Newfoundland Hat

This cold finally did me in. I ended up having to get medication to knock it out of me, which knocked me out physically. I guess my body needed to rest and recoup as I spent a lot of time laying on the couch, watching a movie though my eyelids.  Every so many years I go through this but this time I was fortunate that  it did not move into my chest like it normally does. ..phew..
