making the most of it!

hey peeps, where to start? well, havent been making much art though i am in the middle of a painting at the moment, a beautiful angel inspired by my friend MP, she will also be the new owner of this painting and i showed her a half finished version of it today and she is in love with it and recognized herself in it so my mission is accomplished and that makes me happy :)
here the half finished angel

what else? well i'm making most of my month July seeing August will be one of getting back on my feet after the surgery!

talking of that! last week i found out there has been a change of plan!!! instead of just removing part of the damaged disc they are now going to take the disc away! and replace it with a titanium one wich also means i get metal plates and screws & bolts!

oweeee i wasn't expecting that and can't say i'm too happy either but that's where i stand so as usual i will go through whatever is on my path.

i plan on making my hospital stay as bright as possible! so i will be pretty in pink :)

i got all pink pj's, a pink dressing gown, slippers, undies, all pink of course! i'm taking my pink laptop, i've got pink towels and plan on getting a pink throw for my hospital bed :)) hey! might just brighten up the place while i'm there and it kind of takes my mind of the actual event.

but! before the 4 of August i still have a few plans :))
thursday: park concert with kids & friends
friday: my friend kaat is coming to catch up after her holiday and in the evening i am going to a trailer trash party bash! a birthday party under a bridge lol! and we have to dress the part too! i got some cool 'trashy' clothes last week and am looking forward to dressing up and seeing all my friend's clothes too
saturday: another birthday party but with normal clothes ;)
Sunday: going out for dinner with my friend kelly
Monday: going out for the day with my friend peter
Tuesday: hum i'd best stay home on tuesday :)) pack my bag and pay all the bills before i head of to hospital on wednesday

so you see, i'm keeping myself busy!!

and now off to bed! half past midnight & beauty sleep is calling :))
if i don't drop by before the op i wish you all sunshine filled days, cool nights and good health
love & peace, tanya xox


  1. I'm sure your friend will love her new angel. I like the start of her, too. I wish you all the best with your surgery. Hope it ends up giving you relief from your pain. I will send happy *pink* thoughts your way!!!

  2. dag Tanya,

    welkom terug in Belgiƫ :)Blijkbaar heb je toch een mooie vakantie gehad in Spanje.
    je bent ook druk bezig geweest met schilderen ! echt heel mooi alle schilderijtjes die je hier toont.
    Mijn bedoeling is deze vakantie er ook effectief aan te beginnen, maar tot nu toe is het me nog niet gelukt.... heb wel al 14 dagen eindelijk van alles en nog wat kunnen beginnen creƫren ( geen grote projecten) en had daardoor eindelijk een vakantiegevoel...

    Nog een paar drukke daagjes en dan verplichte platte rust... Ik wens je een goede operatie toe, draagbare pijn ( zeker in vergelijking met wat je al hebt moeten verdragen) en een goed herstel zodat je rug er beter uitkomt dan het de voorbije maanden geweest is.

    Toon ze daar maar wat kleur in het ziekenhuis en ik hoop voor jou dat je je wat creatief kunt bezig houden in je goeie momenten. Moet je lang blijven ?

    het beste !

  3. Dag Tanya,

    net een heel lang comment geschreven en nu is het ineens verdwenen wanneer ik het wil posten...

    In 't kort gezegd : prachtige schilderijen, heel veel sterkte volgende week en een heel voorspoedig herstel !


  4. I will be keeping "good" thoughts for you on the 4th...I hope all goes well.

    PS love your angel!
