Monday Musings

Well it’s Monday, and I’m trying something new. A free form review of the last week, and anything else I want to put in here.

So I was in the hospital for massive edema in the lower extremities, and got out Tuesday. Wednesday, I took paintings down to Falmouth for the Audubon art show, and sale, “Brush with Nature”. Opens October 6.

Next day picked tomatoes and made chicken stock. Something ate my poor sunflower. And worked in the studio.

Studio work this week (Weds. – Sun) was on the Open City comic, as well as starting a new painting project, and working on some small stuff for Jenny, as presents to coworkers.

Of course Cancer Care on Friday. Saw Dr. Siddiqui, and no changes made. Hoping that the Dara isn’t what caused the edema. We’ll see.

And it’s Monday now, with little weight (ie. fluid) gain, so that is good.

Next week I’ll have more on the comic. Maybe a video, and probably some pics of inked pages.

Finished some books in the hospital.

  • Sourdough by Robin Sloan. Delightful if a somewhat weird ending.
  • Robert A Heinlein Requiem Short stories, and then remembrances of the master.
  • Still working on How the World Really Works. Rather dry, but interesting enough that I don’t want to stop reading yet.
  • Just started Telegraph Avenue by Michael Chabon, good so far.

That’s it for this week. All caught up. Hopefully next Monday there will be some actual musings.

  1. Love you so much, and so happy you are painting and pitter pattering around the house. xo

  2. I don’t comment on your musings or even just pass along a thought because I think I will think of something “clever” and don’t get back. And like now, having a mental pause on the name of a favorite author, .. I googled and actually his name came up .. Paul Doiron,
    the author of the Mike Bowditch series of crime novels, including The Poacher’s Son,
    Before COVID, I would read one after another since the Somesville Library had his books right next to the room we gathered to paint …
    just a suggestion .. I was happy I followed up on when I heard people discussing the books.

    Peace, love and hugs, Siggi
