Down with the flu...

Everyone in the family got it before I did. Kitten, Karl, Sascha, Gabriel were all running to the latrine to vomit at unexpected hours of the night. Just as I was beginning to believe I might scrape through without catching it... last night it hit my stomach.

So instead of eating dinner, I put it back in the fridge and haven't eaten anything today but some toast. Hopefully I can starve it out and get past the point where anything I eat will come up again. This is pretty nasty and I feel lousy in a lot of ways, dizzy, sick, blech, ugh.

I'm annoyed because I wanted to write another update on my art supply reviews blog yesterday and today, but that isn't likely to happen till I quit feeling so queasy.

The happy news, some of the review stuff came in! I've got a sample Blick Artist pastel and have to say the Cadmium Red Hue is nice and bright, it's a good strong orangy red. Also got in the Pan Pastel Palette Trays and they are so cool, have some of my Pans out in them now and when I'm up to it I'll do another Pans painting to demonstrate them. I think it'll be a lot easier using them with all the colors out to just grab back and forth into whatever pan I need rather than screwing-unscrewing.

They're good sturdy heavyweight clear plastic too, not at all flimsy. I think these will last for years. Definitely need to get some more of them to keep my whole set in these, so that it's all accessible at the same time.

Be careful with that flu. Hope you feel better soon. Sorry you got it - all that stuff. (((hugs))) I miss being able to chat with you. For some reason this crappy Internet connection has been worse than usual lately and chat won't hook up :/

Re: awww
Purr thanks. Just as I thought I was feeling better this morning... glorp... no, need to continue to fast.

I had to order envelopes for Estemmenosuchus, turned out that I didn't have any up here anywhere I could find them. Sorry about the delay, I did get the postage money, but need to get the envelopes for it. No way am I using the boxes, that'd make it $10 to ship.

Not a problem. No rush. I managed to catch a nasty stomach virus so not much getting done here today.
