Hi friends! I hit the big 4-0 today and things are already going downhill. When I finished up my live class on Friday my throat was scratchy and by the end of the day I was achy, tired and cranky. I spent the weekend under blankets drinking tea and alternating Tylenol and Advil. I have decided that turning 40 is bad for my health and from now on I’m going to be 32🙂
Actually I woke up to lovely presents and a no-bake cookie “cake” from hubby and kids ( love peanut butter no-bakes and I am not crazy about cake as vegan cakes tend to be lackluster) and then my mom and sister stopped by and took us to lunch. My sister gave me a pretty adult coloring book and I remarked at how it will be nice for me to use during my convalescence and she accused me of milking my illness. Pffftt. She just doesn’t understand how long it take people my age to get over a cold. Since I had no voice to shoot videos I spent some idle hours online watching craftsy classes (today is the last day of a big sale if you want to check out some 50% off classes shameless affiliate linkage) and looking at new watercolor paints online. I know, I need more paint like a hole in the head right? I was checking out the brands you guys had been asking me to review and a few sets hopped into my cart. I have not hit “buy” yet so if there were any brands you were curious about let me know and I will see what I can do.
All kidding aside I am very lucky to have lovely friends and family (that I hopefully have not given this crud too) to celebrate this milestone with. I am so grateful to have you here as well so I wanted to let you know why I did not have any new videos up this weekend (if I go a few days I get worried emails LOL:) and if you know of any good remedies to get rid of a sore throat let me know. It is driving me crazy, every time I swallow it feels like razors and I sound like Rudolf when his dad made him cover his red nose with mud. That would make for good video huh? Oh well, I don’t get sick that often so I guess I am due. Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
