I'm in a STUDIO time out, that is. I don't want to dwell too much on yet another problem, so I'll just say that my back went out again and my leg and foot went numb, too. My doctor told me to get comfortable and wait it out, that as long as the numbness comes, and then goes, he's not too worried. If it goes numb and stays that way, we'll be taking x-rays and talking to surgeons. So, I'm out of my studio chair, parked on the sofa, and waiting for this to heal up on its own.
I realized this past week that I've been too focused on work recently. I haven't taken time for myself. I've read a new fluffy Summer Beach Book. If you haven't discovered Wendy Wax's hilariously funny books, I can recommend her latest: The Accidental Bestseller. My all-time favorite of hers, though, is Leave It To Cleavage: An Uplifting Tale. The heroine of that book owns a bra factory and all I can tell you is that in the first pages of the book she finds a photo of her husband wearing custom-made ladies underwear and in the picture he has a woman's hand on his butt. Very funny.
While I'm mostly immobile, I have been doing some beading to keep myself busy. A gorgeous Rosetta jasper cabachon is at the center of this new bead embroidered collar. I hope to have this finished by the end of this week.
Meanwhile, you can find me here on the sofa with a tv remote in my hand...
