A Dose of Austen...

does help the medicine go down. And for an insomniac to sleep. I'm unfortunately keeping my poor family up in the wee hours of the morning and they've found that putting in a movie tends to make me drift off easier - such as Persuasion. My mother put it on and before Anne and Captain Wentworth met again I was out like a light. LOL Also helps to make the weird pain killer dreams less creepy. I've had quite a few nightmares the past few weeks.

So at the moment I'm trying Austen again as far as Sense and Sensibility, but no luck so far - instead I'm fascinated with the wall hangings and carpets, furniture, costumes, Miss Marianne making Willhoughby's silhouette, etc.

It really woke up my creative side again and I am simply DYING to finish my Christmas ornaments I'd started way back in early spring in time to sell them on my blog. I'll have to ask someone to drag one of our little trees upstairs to display and manage to sit at my table long enough to finish them, but I am so very determined to do so. :)

And now I'm awake enough to visit blogs so off I go to blog hop before falling back to dreamland. And if that doesn't do it I'll picture Edward and Elinor riding past sheep instead of just counting them.

Still Here

Still haning in there. I've had three lovely showers so far and every one of them I had to be practically dragged out of as I didn't want to leave that lovely hot water. It's a painful process and rather embarassing to have others take care of you so intimately, but it really does show you just how much you are loved and cherished by your loved ones.

Some days are better than others, but I think I'm making progress. My creative side positively screams for a chance to reemerge and do something, but I really do have a long way to go. Just sitting for a few minutes and typing REALLY takes it out of me. Thanks SOOOO much for all your good wishes. I will be exploring other blogs after a nap, I think. I'm reaching the end of my rope at the moment and must crash. Hope everyone is doing very well and that there's lots of cool stuff going on for me to catch up on.

Happy Fall Everyone!!!!
