"Yellow Flowers" processed in LR4 with Pretty Presets "Color Luxe" Clean and Matte Base, then edited in Photoshop with "Tumeric" texture from the Flypaper Pastel Painterly Set.It has been a crazy week with major ups and downs. We went to Austin and Fredericksburg for my husband's birthday and had a great time hiking and visiting museums and wineries. Once I go through my photos I will post a few on my blog. It was really such a great trip and we visited a few places the boys had never seen before. The image above was taking at Hamilton Pool outside of Austin. The fall colors and flowers were gorgeous.
We had a wonderful time on our trip and I was sad we had to come back home so soon. That evening, around 4:30 am, I woke up horribly ill with a stomach virus (norovirus?) and felt so sick I thought I was going to die. I spent yesterday crawling from the toilet back to the bed with occasional thoughts of "Oh my gosh, I have Ebola" crossing my illogical sick mind. We had visited Dallas at the height of the Ebola crisis, but I was pretty sure I just had a normal stomach virus since my both my sisters, their families, and my mom had just gone through the same virus and had survived.
Today I am weak but was able to eat a bit of breakfast. The kids are happy I feel better, but they did enjoy the hours and hours they spend on Minecraft and watching the Penguins of Madagascar. I don't like my kids spending too much of their lives on screen time, but when any of us are sick there are no limits. :-) What in the world did moms do when they got sick before they had a television to babysit the kids?
I wanted to remind you that Ashe Design's 8x8 soft photo books are on sale for $12.50 for only two more days, so grab a few before it is too late.
I have a new action coming out this week and a few other fun goodies. I hope to be back to normal by tomorrow so I will feel up to working on the computer. Right now I am going to go back to bed and feel sorry for myself for a few more hours. I figure I can milk this sickness until the end of the day. ;-)
