My paintings..



I can finally show you the two paintings i did for my parents and my Sister in law (Since Christmas is over, and they already got them as presents!).

The one for my parents has words from Ecclesiastes 3 1-8, as my parents are leaving sometime next year to be missionaries overseas (long-term), so i thought it would be fitting for it to be about moving on 'For everything there is a season'.

And the one for my Sister in law is just a simple one about being someone who 'is enough' for this world, that you don't need to prove anything to anyone, as we are all beautiful and loved :).

Here they are;

So it was a really lovely day, thanks family for a lovely day :)

But today it was a bit of a different day..hubby woke up with a very very sore tummy and we ended up going to the hospital in an ambulance! We cam home 6 hours later, and the docs don't know what it was..so we got a prescription for codeine, if it comes back, and then if the pills don't work, we will have to go back :S

Hubby sleeping in Emergency

Well im off for a nap, as im quite tired from being in the hospital all day lol.

Yay so thats how my garden is doing so far.. :)

Well, its only 5 days till Christmas now, wow! i have done everything, except im just finishing another painting for someone hehe. 

But on other news, my Baby cat Harvey had to go to the Vet to get his last shot for being a ful grown cat now..he did so well..but now he doesnt seem to be so well (beware this is icky) His poop is al mucusy and runny, not so much like diarea..just mucusy, and he has gone poop 5 times just this evening. But he is his normal self, playful and purring and running around, still drinking water and everything..So im not sure if i should just keep checking his poop..or take him to the vet again. We cant exactly afford it, but im thinking if i worm him it might help? He is due to be wormed..hmm i hate seeing my baby all sick (even though he doesnt seem sick)

Ah well..i dont need to be worried about this at the mo, im sure he is fine. I have a tendency to over stress things LOL

Well im off to put him to bed and go there myself..night! :)
