001AI checked the date on my last post here: March 31st. It’s been a whole month. I didn’t mean to stay away so long.

I’ve been taking it relatively easy lately, to avoid the rush to get right back to my pre-surgery schedule. A lot of the stuff I’ve read about the operation I had says that even though I feel like I’m better, I’m not. Everything is still healing. Every once in a while, my belly makes me wince to remind me—usually, after I’ve overdone.

So. Relatively easy at my house is developing a new online class (this weeks artwork is a stack of the sample books from this class), but still taking afternoon naps. Unfortunately, that doesn’t leave time for personal artwork, or playing at my local art group every two weeks. I’m hoping to add both back to the mix soon. For now, I’m not beating myself up for not being able to do everything.
