A little OCD today

 Here are a couple of my new hats. I wore the black one at our last Art Ventures luncheon. However, the weather is still too warm for hats unless they are straw. I just cannot do straw hats after Labor Day nor wear white shoes or pants. I guess it is a true Southern thing. 
 Prince was told by his mother that I was decorating for fall so he came home with these adorable little turkeys for me. Prince is always surprising me with little gifts of love. I would rather have his surprises than to get a big item at any time. 
 I had misplaced my original copy of Mary Beth's photo(see photo above)  that she let me have to paint but now I have found it in to  reprint it so I might finish the large canvas I started . I had my small 8x10 painting of this subject displayed in the living room and was enjoying it before I give it away at Christmas BUT had to go buy another frame after the cleaner were here. I dusted this place for over 25 years and never in those years did I incur as much breakage as when they show up. I guess I need to start looking for someone else to clean if this breakage continues. I will make some photos of the paintings for y'all after I finish and put them on the blog. Thus comes the sad news, for almost 3 weeks I have been unable to paint as  my back was not up to par. I have given my therapist the nickname, Mr. Paint since his real name gives you the image of lots of different colors. I think it is poetic timing for an Artist to have a therapist whose name reminds you of lots of paint.  Anyway, I have been  going to PT to try and get the ole arm back to painting mode. The background story is I suffered for 3 days without pain pills, then I remembered I had some for arthritis   pain the  doctor had prescribe back in the Spring. I tried them for almost 2 weeks as I feared it was NERVE. After finally taking in my doctor's shingle, I went to the real doctor and he sent me on my way to the therapist advising it was a pulled muscle. Well I am off to do my exercises and y'all wish me luck because I cannot recharge my batteries without painting.

Lovely two hats! Your husband seems to be a real prince in his attitude.
Physical Therapy can be very beneficial if it's done properly. Feel soon better and resume your painting work!

As I told my MIL when they arrived "you can never have too many hats, shoes or jewelry. I wish people dressed up again like in the early years but alas most are just slobs. Just go sit anywhere and watch the public and you will agree. Peace
