Will resume Sarah's portrait on Monday. The glazes need to dry anyway.
I had the flu because:
--I had a three-hour, deep tissue massage and then wallowed in the cold air outside.
--My sister and brother-in-law arrived from Oz and I had to go out with them and my family several times, some of these entailing waking up early.
--I had to wake up early on the 14th to go to a TV interview, which is always stressful for me.
--Rectified turpentine fumes make me weak.
My idea of a restful existence now is to be alone, to sleep through each morning, to do only the things I like doing, and to avoid appointments, consultations, and interviews.
