Yesterday’s MRI is a done deal and we appreciate your thoughts, prayers and encouragements. Who knows when we will get results. Mainers don’t seem to get in a hurry for anything. And usually that is alright, but not this time. We need help like a month ago. The MRI will help us get an appointment with a neurosurgeon so Mark can finally get some help. Don’t even get me started on the family practice “doctor” that has been helping us. I have already changed to a new practitioner and Mark will be once this referral to the surgeon goes through. Also, looks like Mark’s insurance will not pay for the MRI nor the cat scan we already did (and didn’t need but that’s part of that whole “doctor” thing.) I’ll keep you in the loop. And thanks again. You guys are the best!
I was trying to print something yesterday and my printer wouldn’t turn on. Seems the plug got dislodged from the wall – no idea how because it is behind an eight foot tall bookcase – and to fix it I had to completely move the case away from the wall. My studio here is not as large as the two rooms I used in Florida. It is seriously wall to wall furniture and storage. The only open space is where that TV is and where the closet and doorway is. To move the bookcase I had to completely empty the shelves. Mark isn’t able to help with that kind of thing because of his back. So it all went onto the floor. I didn’t think to take a photo at that point. This was after I fixed the printer and replaced almost everything onto the shelves. All those books on the floor – some of them will end up in my Etsy shop. Did you know I have a store? Yep! Here is a link to The Creator’s Leaf Etsy store. There is a bunch of product there now and I am thinking about setting aside one day a week to just work on product for the store. I’ll eventually make a post about that.
I do have good news on the snow front, though. Here is this morning’s shot out the upstairs window. The old plow truck is visible and the tractor is almost totally uncovered now. The temps are up in the upper 30s today. And the sun is out. And we can tell the snow is melting because the basement is already flooded. The pump is running – shooting the water out over the top of a snow pile and into the grass area you see here. Fingers crossed and praying the snow is over for this season. It’s beautiful and I love it but enough is enough. Hopefully back to art tomorrow. Have great day! <3
