Under the weather


 I wrote the term  "under the weather" then I thought that it might mean different things in different places so I needed to check.
 Free dictionary http://www.thefreedictionary.com/under+the+weather said it meant ill, drunk or having a hang over.

To clarify, in my case, it means ill. That's why I haven't been around to visit your blogs. When your head hurts so badly that blinking is too much, it's time to take a break from the computer but I will as soon I'm able.

Along with the illness, we've had gloomy, cloudy and uninspiring weather but I won't complain too much when I see what others around the world are dealing with.


so what did I paint?? - flowers and bluebirds -  because I'm waiting for spring.


I would like to than Judy Adamson for her encouragement to paint flowers she has some very beautiful paintings to inspire us.

  5. There is a beautiful, delicate touch to your painting.

    Ow, no fun with being 'under the weather'. I wonder if it goes with the season?

    Thought - I'm using a laptop all the time now - I found my Viewsonic monitor (tube type) give me a very nasty headache after about half an hour use. Yet no problem with flat screen monitors. Something to do with the flicker with the 'video' type.

    Hope you feel better soon. ATB!

  7. Hi Carole - I do hope you'll soon be better and I do appreciate your stopping by to comment on my blog in spite of feeling 'under the weather'! Also, thank you so much for including my card and bookmark, but I love your poppies (as well as your bluebird, of course!) and I hope you'll feel inspired to do a lot more flower painting as the weather improves and the flowers come out! I think those poppies might well become a best seller!

    Maybe I'll even persuade you to paint people eventually....:)

  10. Hi Carole, hope you get some rest over the weekend and take as long as you need to feel better. Winters blahs and sickness are not fun. The paintings are lovely. Thanks for sharing.

  14. Lovely paintings. Your paintings are full of color and life,not like the weather you described. I bet you can't wait till it's spring. :)

    The the poppies remindmeof my oldplace. Now I livein flat in this busy city of the Hague so no moreflowers and plants to attend to as there is no garden (only indoor flowers and plant snow).

    Under the weather is a trivia for mow. Great to know these new terms. :) I hope you willbeout of "under the weather" soon!

    Cheers!

  15. Hope you're starting to feel better. I don't know about where you live, but we have ice today and they say more is coming along with snow. I just hope and pray the power stays on. Have a big pan of stew in the oven for supper. It's a recipe that bakes slowly for about 5 hours, put everything together and forget about it until time to eat. I like that kind of meal. LOL Take care and keep warm. Thanks for your visits.

  16. P.S. Cards are beautiful as usual.
    PPS I also have gone to the wrong car, even inserted key into the trunk, and wondered what my husband had done to the lock since the key wouldn't turn, finally I glanced down at the license plate and realized, WRONG CAR. LOL Same color and make, but not mine. I felt really stupid, then I had to look for our car so I could put the groceries into the trunk. Believe me, every since that happened, I make a mental note as to where I parked.

  17. So sorry you have been unwell, sounds like the flu to me. Hope you feel better soon, perhaps you have been doing too much, I always get ill or at the very least a migraine if I overdo things (which seems to be a femail trait!)

    'Under the weather' means ill here too. Years ago we used to say 'Under the doctor', meaning in the care of the local health professional. However you can imagine how people started jokingly interpretting that phrase, and no one under 80 dares use it now! Rest up and get well soon X

  19. I do hope this finds you in much better shape with your "under the weather" bout. Yes it has been a grueling winter for many and yet as your photos posted show even the snows of winter have a beauty

  23. Good Evening Carole, your paintings are beautiful. I love flowers, but for some reason I have a hard time painting them. Once in awhile I get lucky and paint a very nice flower in watercolor. Get Well Soon!!! I hope we can be friends. I am friends with Grenville and Beatrice. They will vouch for me.
