I took the advice myself last Tuesday evening and fell on my face. That is one of the reasons for my absence here. My sister had surgery in New Mexico and we went to see her. When she got better and went home from the hospital, we decided to go to the dentist for a teeth cleaning on our way home. Gene needed a cavity fixed, too.
We arrived in Deming, New Mexico, on Tuesday afternoon. I went outside to make a call to check on my sister and decided to bring our little cooler back in the hotel room. I started to the door and stumbled and fell across the sidewalk with no time to put out my hands. I am pretty sure it was luck not to hit the sidewalk. My face hit the gravel instead which I think saved breaking my teeth.
Emergency room time and stitches in my upper and lower lips with plastic glue stuff on the outside of my lower lip. I did not get my teeth cleaned on Wednesday. Ha. They had a rough time with Gene's tooth and ended up pulling it, the root had grown into the bone and the cavity was too deep to save the tooth.
On the road we both were having liquid diets instead of getting to try new restaurants and nice dinners with wine. Ah well.
Our Texas kids came out for Mother's day. We had breakfast instead of lunch which for me was scrambled eggs! That is one of the last foods I would ask for on Mother's Day, but it was my first "solid" food and it was pretty darn good. We had planned to have brisket, corn on the cobb, etc. It was a nice day and fun to see the kiddos.
We should be in A-1 shape again in a couple of days, health wise.
Today was Enid Wood's pastel class at the Bastrop Fine Arts Guild. We were trying underpainting with Pan Pastels. I had never used Pan Pastels. In anticipation of this class, Gene got me a set of 20 for Mother's Day.
I forgot to take the little sponges and tools to work with them so used a soft Viva paper towel over my finger and worked like I do on my iPad.
This is the last class at the Guild until fall. Enid will have some plein air paint togethers on Mondays in Bastrop and the area. Check her page, http://enidwood.com/classes/
