As you can probably imagine, doing detailed cookie decorating has become difficult. On the down side, I am starting meds that have potential for scary side effects, the joint pain is a constant, my cookie decorating has suffered, and in general it is just a royal pain in the patooty.
On the up side, I have been using my free time for drawing and painting. It is not nearly as hard on the hands, plus, you can easily put it down when you get fatigued, and there is no epic icing cleanup. It is something I haven't done in quite a while, and it has been fun to get back into it.
While it hasn't been a party to deal with all this, I try to always remember that it could be something much worse.
I am blessed beyond words in so many ways.
So with that being said, I will still be doing cookies from time to time, baking summer pies (yay!), puttering in my garden, and if I am feeling brave, perhaps sharing some of my art here.
