Five More Days and Counting...

And then it's that day, Christmas Day. Finally the most awaited day of the year will be here in a few more days . Christmas cards started trickling as early as November...then it came by deluge last week. Most came from former co-workers, friends and family. They came from all over the country and as far away as Australia and from back home, the Philippines. One of the cards that stand out most for me was from a young man, age 19. He's going to school right now, and for him every peso counts, but he managed to save some to get me one special card. His was the first to arrive.

Thank you, Esjay, the card means a lot to me. I know that it came from the bottom of your heart.
















The card with a photo frame, has my friend's (Nancy) self-portrait picture, a mug handle accessory and a bookmarker.

My pc is acting up, so if this is a duplicate comment, 'sensya na.
Anyway, as I was scrolling down your post, something looks familiar and sure enough as I read the caption ... it was one of my very early oil painting, my 3rd to be exact. I was very disappointed with this that I stopped painting for maybe 15 yrs...? until my friend, Mari got me started again. Only this time, I am trying my hands with colored pencils. Thanks, dudette for giving my work a room in your blog!

Nans, you're welcome. Keep at it, in time you'll get the hang of it. And you know what they say, "practice makes perfect." I tried doing some sketching while in bed yesterday, but my hands were shaky. This strep throat keeps me in bed. Aargh!

strep throat? that's no fun specially when you swallow. try gargling with warm salter water... good old grandma's cure!
