Shingles, Day 6

I almost had a panic moment last night.  I was so tired, but the pain was keeping me awake.  Around 4 AM, I took an Advil and was able to fall asleep.  I slept on and off until about 2:30 PM and wow, what a difference a little rest can do.  I looked in the mirror and felt a sense of victory when I saw that some of the shingles blisters were starting to dry out.

I wanted to take advantage of the renewed energy so I did some cleaning and worked on this butterfly wall art that my friend Jessie requested.  She had seen it on Pinterest and Etsy, but the ones being sold online were going for $75 (?!).  I think that's a little unreasonable, so I told her I'd help her out.  I already had the butterfly punch and the cardstock.  Joann's had a sale on the canvas so material-wise, this was really easy.  It took me about 2 hours to put everything together and I think this'll be a nice addition to her daughters' room.
Mom and Dad were super nice to come over tonight and bring me dinner (crab cakes).  I've had no desire to leave the house (I haven't since Thursday), so the company was nice.  Mom kept sneaking chicken to RJ.  That kitty is so spoiled!

That sure is a cute heart...yeah I know, some prices on Etsy can be pretty steep. Glad to hear the shingles are getting less intensive. Get yourself some rest tomorrow. Maybe sit in the sun for a bit. Gets some vitamin D on those shingles. The sun worked wonders on the bug bite on my leg. Louise

Good to hear you finally got some rest and that the rash/blisters were doing better. Beautiful artwork.
