Oh, Boy....

Last week, it seemed like a great idea to change my medicine.
The actuality is a bit different.
I am walking around like a zombie.  I have to wean from the old medicine (which feels like having my security blanket torn out of my hands) and slowly introduce the new meds which is too little for a lot of benefit right now!  
I can do this, right?!
I did a little puttering but my mind can't bear concentrating for too long. 
I added a bit of background to the watercolor, 
and I sanded the new resin sea animals, then drilled holes so they can be worn.
I am trying to make up my mind to put them all on one necklace or to have five individual ones.  
Today is not the best day for decisions. 
And I did a bit of this because I can do it with my eyes closed!  
Yes, this fiber is easy to spin;  even if it is Masham top. 
It is a new to me fiber and I am liking it just fine.

I didn't knit again today.......this is not a good pattern.
Tomorrow has to be a better day.


  1. that sounds awful, esp, if it's down to pain that doesn't go away:( I do hope that the new meds kick in soon and you'll feel better again! fingers crossed.....

  2. Yeah, it takes your body a couple of weeks to adjust to any kind of meds. Unless your me and then the meds do the opposite of whatever it is they're supposed to do, lol! Just go slow.

  3. Oh, no.....that's awful. Nothing worse than adjusting to new meds. It's good that you are listening to your body. It knows what to do. It just takes time. Spinning is such a wonderful thing for when nothing else works. It's so intuitive once you get the hang of it and it's so soothing to be doing something when you can't seem to get anything else right.

  4. I'm sure once your meds are correct, you'll be right back to knitting again. In the meantime, your little fill in projects are terrrific. Love the resin animals.

  5. Whoa, what you are capable of in your zombie state, scares me more than zombies. Your water color work is absolutely wonderful. I hope the adjustment goes smoothly and quickly for you. All the best.

  6. Meds changes can be so hard. I've had to switch from name-brand to generic, thanks to my insurance company, and it has been pretty rough -- and that isn't even changing meds! Hang in there. It usually gets better with time.

I said my goodbyes yesterday;  it seems I anticipate the visit for so long and then it goes by in the blink of an eye!   We sure did pile a ...
