Summer moon

I am afraid I am pinching ideas from other people here, a mix of several things I have seen on other blogs. I dont think if it is for me and it is practice it is stealing but I am not sure. I cant even remember whose they were, just something I saw in passing while wandering in blog land and as I sat by the fire tonight it some how stuck.
The physio said I was not to lift, garden or vacuum for a week, or at least until she sees
me again. What bliss, I can sit back and cop out!
Any way the vacuuming is done, not by me but by my dear husband. He does try to look after me.
Tomorrow is Adelaide, I may not make it home without the back killing me but up I go. Cant not see my mother.
Here is a traditional verse from Voices 1.
Winter Wise
Walk fast in snow, in frost walk slow.
And still as you go tread on your toe;
When frost and snow are both together,
Sit by the fire, and spare shoe leather.

there's no stealing in art, we all influence each other and redo in our own voices! it's okay - and this is a sweet sketch! Wishing you relief and pain free days, soon!!! rest well.

I hope the back is soon better Penny. I suffer from back problems and must not lift anything. The trouble is that it gets a bit better and you lift something without thinking about it. Do you have exercises to do?
