Metal mania this week turned into Mega Mama detail. Our poor Gus-Gus got the flu and needed lots of TLC and a round-the-clock Mommy. Full-on flu has gripped our youngest and all things nasty that come with it, all in two hour increments… Daddy-O would have gladly stepped in to switch out bedding, make 7-Up & chicken soup runs and rinse the cool forehead washcloths, but since I work at home it made much more sense for me to go for the last few nights without sleep. While it did throw a monkey wrench into my all-day weld-a-thons, I was able to get all of my hand work, beading and tagging done for the Raven ornaments while keeping a vigil over the offspring. While Gus napped I was even able to
wear my Spenard Farmers Market volunteer Vendor Chair hat and follow up with farmers and artisans, update the website and answer e-mails from interested new vendors. Working on Market stuff makes me actually think we will eventually have a summer –though I had my doubts as 5” of new snow fell yesterday during a routine spring storm. I’m ready to be out in the shop again only if my headache and body aches are not the beginning of Gus’ virus…aaaack.
