 Sad to hear this morning about the passing of Leonard Nimoy. I will always remember him as Spock. In spite of good pain drugs my hand hurt all day long. Changed the bandage tonight and Ron snapped a photo. This looks better than it did yesterday…but still pretty ugly.

Well I spent a very long day at the doctors office, getting skin cancer removed from my hand. It is still numb from the shots they gave me to do the surgery. Based on the way it looked before they bandaged it, it is going to hurt a lot very soon. The cancer is all gone, so for that I am grateful.

The Fifth Dimension song was a favorite of mine… lo those many years ago.  For some reason it was bouncing around in my head tonight.  So a few balloons done in colored pencil.  Bad weather continues, it is pouring down rain and cold now yuk.

Rainy cold day, some freezing drizzle, but nothing of any consequence.  I planted a Carolina Jessamine, last Summer, it is covered in blooms now, I hope this cold snap doesn't kill them.  Come on Spring, I'm really tired of Winter.

Got Danny Gregory's book "Art before Breakfast" today, managed to read a few pages, and I particularly liked the little 'a' art.  Capital 'A' art hangs in museums and is sold in auctions, little 'a' art is a totally different animal… TOTALLY.

We went to the Citadel for dinner, where our Senator Tim Scott spoke, along with Donald Trump and Senator Rick Santorum.  We had fun and the speeches were  interesting.  The dinner was a fund raiser for the young men to take a trip to the CPAC convention in March.  I do believe they raised quite a bit of money tonight for the trip.

Ron and I had looked at these 'smart' watches before Christmas, but nobody had any available.  Since then we've checked from time to time to see if they were in stock, today we scored Ron got a black one, mine is white.  It is a way cool gadget that I can text on, send and receive phone calls, and it tells time and has my calendar of meetings on it.  Met our friends Dave and Laura for dinner before the hockey game tonight, exciting game for 'Pink in the Rink' to benefit Breast Cancer patients.

Very cold today here in Charleston, not at all what we're used to around here.  Got the idea for this from the book 'Sketch' by France Belleville-Van Stone which I finished reading today.  Good book that I actually read instead of just looking at the pictures.

Tamiflu is a remarkable drug, I'm not 100% yet but I'm pretty close, no fever, no headaches, still congested and coughing but that's it.  Going to be REALLY COLD tonight, down to 16 some weather men say, others are optimistic and think it'll only be down to 20, either one is way too cold for this Southern girl.

Found these stamps online, fingering stamps for flute and clarinet.  I like it, and it will allow me work on my fingering.  I can read music and play the piano, but translating that note to different positions is a real learning curve for me, especially the step from B to D.  The congestion from the flute has made it impossible to practice, but I can practice my fingering.

Spent the day in bed, the post brought a box from Goulet Pens, with the ink I ordered.  I loaded my blue Lamy with the Turquoise ink, I think I like the color very much.

Time to go to the Dr… I'm running a fever so maybe this is the flu catching up to me finally. I have the Flu type A,  spent way too much time chasing down the drugs I needed.  My local pharmacy was out, the 24-hour folks said they'd be a 2 hour wait, so we came back home and I went back at 9pm, and guess what, it wasn't ready.  How hard is it to count pills and put them in a bottle… I mean seriously.

Went to the hockey game in spite of feeling poorly, it was a good game, Rays won it 3 to 2, that's six wins in a row for them. Still it may be too late for them, not many games left in the season and so far they aren't qualified for the playoffs.  I'm glad I have the day off tomorrow, maybe I can kick this cold with some rest and vitamin C.

I made Ron a Valentine's Day card, he let me sleep late and made me breakfast… perfect presents. True love isn't measured in the presents you give, instead it is the small acts of kindness and forgiveness that happen every day.  Telling the people you love that you love them by treating them like you love them, and saying it everyday.
