side tracked

i was so glad when i finally got new shoes....

i should know that i need to stay on it- my feet are pretty pathetic- fasciitis, bone spurs (heel & ankle)- when they hurt, they really hurt..... so after the 5 mile hike in less than cushy shoes & standing all weekend i decided to start running again monday. and last night my right heel started throbbing and this morning i couldn't put any weight on it...

luckily, i still had the cane from the time i sprained my ankle in my kitchen while standing still after 1/2 of a martini (have i mentioned how graceful i am?). of course, by the time steve got home carolyn had the ice pack on my ankle & it was elevated and we were on another round.... i mean, what else are you going to do?

so, anyway- no art tonight, b/c even tho i got in to the podiatrist (who pegged running in these shoes as the problem- tho they are fortunately still good for walking and standing in- b/c even tho they're not what my feet need, they weren't cheap. oh well, now i get to support local business again & do my bit for the economy), and got my foot taped & took some aleve my foot still hurts & standing & walking & carrying didn't sound like a good idea. and i have to be able to haul art stuff to set up thursday.

ended up on the couch for some of the evening. of course now things have tightened up & i'm hobbling again....

so i put together some small prints to fit in the 5x7 mats for the show.......

the ones on top are prints of the bleached photos, on the bottom various images that struck me for one reason or another.....
the refill for the xyron has had its departure scan in salt lake (i love being able to track packages! the internet is so damn handy!). even tho it says delivery dec 5 i'm hoping i get it in time to make some more magnets before the show.... fingers crossed....
asked to take thursday off, but i have a meeting in the morning.... oh well- as long as i'm free by noon we should be good.
off to bed now- so i can wake up at 3:30 and plan for thursday.....
