"You are NOT Invited..."

to my daily tea party...
which has been going on waaaay tooooo long!
This
congestion business is a pain...
nasal passages, chest, sinuses, ears, throat...
You name it...it's stuffy.
It's hard to breathe without gels and sprays and misted air.
The only thing "light and breezy"
around here is my
humidifier!
I really need to find myself a magic rabbit hole.
I need fresh breezy air!

"Breezy"...(or...in my case NOT!)

"Of all the silly nonsense,
this is the stupidest tea party I've ever been to
in all my life."

Sorry to hear you're feeling under the weather. On the bright side, it did put you in a position to make this wonderful still life.

Thank you for not inviting me to your tea party. What misery is upon you. I sure hope that a little tea with honey will make you feel better for more than five minutes. Get well soon.

Angela said...

Yuck! Hope you feel better soon!

Claire M said...

Get well soon. ;-)

Hope you feel better soon...but I really love your sketch!

marianne said...

Poor Margaret!
I really hope you feel better soon!
That you are able to create such beauty under these circumstances......amazing. Or is it like me that painting provides a comfort in a stressy time?

Jennifer White said...

What a fantastic post, but not that you're under the weather... the humidifier is one of my favorites, cool mist in my house always helps. The sketch is amazing, feel better ;-)

Ana Tirolese said...

I love your post, but am sorry to hear you are still under the weather. Here's hoping you get better soon.

BTW - Love your sense of humour!

GET WELL SOON.

Oh Margaret! I've got the exact same thing. Except I'm only on day 2 but I've already used an entire box of tissues! Last night I made some hot lemon tea with honey - that seemed to help more than anything else. Hope you feel better real soon!

I love this drawing...so many potions. I have a remedy that is guaranteed to work. Chop 1 tbsp fresh ginger (skin and all) into tiny pieces put in mug and pour boiling water over it. Let it sit for 5 minutes and drink. then chew all the ginger and swallow.
hope you feel better soon

Eeek, sorry you're still under the weather! Great sketch, though...<;-)

Sherry said...

Oh sister, you have my sympathy. And I'm sort of glad your germs can't travel in cyberspace. Can they???

winna said...

sure hope you're chipper by now---you make it look sort of festive party like with the great colors and all in the great sketch--love your mind!

Wow! Lovely colour and very soft gentle touch!

Geez, how could you do such a beautiful painting when you are feeling so yucky!

Happy and healing hugs headed your way.

I've been having my own party here in Pa. I think this winter has been the worst for me for sinus congestion. Great sketch.

AmberSkye said...

Wow I commend you. When I was at the particular tea party last month I didn't even feel like getting out of bed much less drawing for like 2 days. It is a really wonderful still life though.

OH! AND sending you a HUGE thank you! My little treasure of an envelope arrived and WOW!! I was not only impressed by the gorgeous feather, but the CARD, too! uh, did I say, "WOW", yet? ... just in case, triple WOW!

PAK ART said...

You've inspired me to start a sketch journal. Thank you!

You must have the same crud my daughter has! She's had it for over a week now! Hope you feel better, I love your sketch! Marva

Julie said...
