Link to Characteristics of Creative People; Blog on Mini Hiatus

A couple of weeks ago, when I made my news junkie rounds of blogs (from conservative to liberal), I came across a post about the characteristics of creative people on Huffington Post that did more than catch my eye: It made me smile. The link is here. I think you'll smile, too. It's seriously great!

Otherwise, my laptop's been sitting on my desk, lonely and sad without me (I'd like to imagine) as days have ended with me flopping into bed, too tired from preparing for the North Carolina move to give it a goodnight pat, or, like today, too feverish from the crud going around to do much of anything.

The good news is, Mr. H., who is rarely sick, is on the mend. Yes, we both had our flu shots. But this isn't the flu or pneumonia. It's just a nasty crud that lays one low for a bit. In the meantime, my blog's on hiatus . . . there's no sense pretending I can do more when I can't.

Really hope this winter bug hasn't nipped at you! xoxo

I am a tortured artist. Or I tortured an artist. I'm not sure. I hope you feel better soon.

Love,

Hi Kittie! Sorry to read that you and the Mr. are under the weather. I wish I could send you a big dose of Saigon sunshine. I LOVED the article, thank you! I was having doubts about a personality quirk of mine..not any more!
Sending you warm wishes for a healthy recovery...

Oh, Kittie, so sorry you have the crud. Lots of that going around. You have been missed, so it's nice to see an update from you. Hope you feel better very soon!

Get better soon - I was sick this winter, too, ugh!

Mary Mary said...

I must definitely be creative. I'm just about all of those! I hope you feel better soon!

Hi Kittie. Sorry to hear you and yours haven't been well, and in the midst of a move, bad timing. I hope things go as smoothly as they can. No doubt you'll have a whole new level of creativity in your new home. Can't wait to see pics of your decorating marvels. (Geo and I are beginning redecorating on our existing beach house over Easter. Only have a wedding to interrupt us mid-Easter, but we should get lots done.) <3

No bug here. Sorry you both caught it.
Saw the article. Apparently I'm not creative.

Hope you guys are soon on the mend! This time of the year is so bad for crud. =/

Hi Kittie - hope all things associated with move from L to V are going along happily and that by now you really are both feeling better.

Thanks for the link - it's the Steve Jobs bit .. connecting the dots and visualising your journey ... and yes I will be doing more of that.

Cheers and all the best - Hilary

I wish hubby all the best. All the best with the move, it can be so tiring. Take care.

I use the word cruddy a lot, but crud, I ended up looking for a description. I think I ail from crud myself. Course, I'm known to be a bit... what do you call a person who is always sicker than the person who's truly suffering from crud?

Hypochondriac?

Oh likely the stress of moving helped put both of you down and after it's all over with perhaps you will fully recuperated. Interessting Puffington post on Creativity.

Checking in on you. Hope all is well. My Boy Scouts helped hang flags yesterday at the cemetery for the Memorial Day service. I thought of you and the nice comments you shared about them. Take care.
