Winter blahs?

I have not been feeling very well lately. Not sure what is wrong with me, but I am not my energetic self even with my new haircut. Still managing to drag myself to the gym, but that's about it. Right now, I think I will walk my dog and crawl into bed.

Maybe your body ( and psyche) are having a hard time re-adjusting to the cold and short days? I hope you feel better soon, Jennifer. Take good care.

I periodically need to take a day in PJs, doing nothing but puttering around, reading, watching movies, with the cats and dog always near, for my mental health.
Love the painting--a wonderful design.

Hoping that it's just a bit of re-entry into Maine's recent weather.
Spoil yourself a little and allow yourself to take a break.
It's 1:30 on a Sunday afternoon~ still in my p.j.'s...

maybe it IS the haircut? kidding...
drink tea, cuddle up, take care of yourself.
I've been reading your blog and looking at your wonderful drawings for a couple of weeks. Thanks!

Deborah

p.s. i live in westchester county NY, but have many connections in portland - best friend, nieces and nephew, and I come to portland often; so it's fun for me to see your drawings of it.

I hope it isn't flu. Flu cases made the TV news here last week. If it doesn't go away, get checked out! And a day (or two) inside with flannels, cocoa or tea and Mozart(or Beethoven if you're up to it) can be very therapeutic.

I know what you mean...then I said to myself -"You really need to get excited" so I added a new green ski jacket and my day was suddenly transformed. So if it takes a new hat or some new art supplies, allow yourself a little excitement of a reward.
It works wonders.
For what it's worth - I love your work! Feel better.

Jennifer, I really hope you feel better soon. It sounds like the flu - it took us weeks to feel energetic again. For now, stay warm and dream of Bali...

Your illness hasn't affected your artistic talent, Jennifer! The new haircut is very chic. I hope you're soon feeling better and that it's just a cold and not the dreaded flu.

So sorry to hear you've not been feeling well. If it makes you feel any better, the drawings/paintings that have come out of your illness are quite remarkable. I especially like this one---and the decisions you've made about where to use color and where not.

And you've been going to the gym too...incredible!

This little painting is very cool. Your entire blog is wonderful, Jennifer.

I hope you're feeling better now! I really like this sketch. Wonderful use of simple (yet perfectly-placed) lines and color.
