Yesterday I made these gorgeous tiles in a unique shape created with one of my snowflake cutouts. The downside was using my body in a way I am not used to and then in doing to many at once because I was excited with them and having a great time. Time just flew by (time really does fly when you are having fun!) and it was late when I looked up at the clock. I could tell that my elbow was hurting. When I woke up this morning I was in real pain. That all over ache like when you get the flu. That's fibromyalgia for you. Most of the time I can ignore the fibro, especially by keeping busy and I mostly don't feel it. Then there are days like yesterday when I do something that my body is not used to. Then I overdo it on top of that and I am quickly reminded of my limitations. Slow and steady should be my motto. I had that tender all over feeling and I wouldn't even let my cat initiate her morning ritual of walking all over me. She tried but it just hurt too much.
I haven't been taking photos too much lately. I have been feeling kind of obsessed with ceramics. In a good way, I think. Here is a photo I took about a month ago of the handrail on the footbridge to campus. I like the design and the graphic qualities. I am at campus right now, using the computer. I finally gave up on mine at home. It does a lot of things great as long as I don't get on the internet. I'm not sure what is wrong with our internet at home or if it is a combo of the internet and my old computer. The last couple of days, hours have been wasted just waiting for pages to load. This morning I couldn't get anything no matter how I tried to connect. I feeling like borrowing somebody's computer just to make sure whether or not it is my computer or the connection.
I'm actually in a relatively good mood, at least that's what I keep telling myself. But I am tired and sore and in my fogginess I left my keys at home when I ran off to school at 8am. I was all ready to get into the printmaking lab and work on something extra that was due today. But without a key, I can't get into my locker to get my supplies. It's only a ten minute walk home so I'll be heading out soon to go retrieve them. I think I'll stop and buy a bike lock first in the school bookstore and then I can get back and forth even quicker. Oh, and a bike helmet too. But I got to go to the bikestore for that. Thanks for listening to me ramble today. Sometimes, you just gotta vent. Have a great one!
