Being here (at summer's end)

Welcome to Spark and the Thyroid Community Team.

I get asked a lot about my art... the images you see here that are non-photos.

The medium is aquatint/etching.

Its a type of printing process, where an image is created on a sheet of copper, using corrosive salts, grounds, burnishing, sanding and scraping. After the image has been refined, its inked and wiped, pulled thru a 1.5 ton hand press with a dampened sheet of paper and felt blankets. During this ...
Welcome to Spark and the Thyroid Community Team.

I get asked a lot about my art... the images you see here that are non-photos.

The medium is aquatint/etching.

Its a type of printing process, where an image is created on a sheet of copper, using corrosive salts, grounds, burnishing, sanding and scraping. After the image has been refined, its inked and wiped, pulled thru a 1.5 ton hand press with a dampened sheet of paper and felt blankets. During this final process the ink is transferred to the paper.

Its extremely time consuming and challenging as the process is full of surprises that you don't always have the ability to anticipate or control. Many of these surprises are not um... desirable. LOL

Rather like thyroid disease.

Between the Hashi's and Aquatints I should be a Zen Master by now.
Unfortunately, I am not.

Its nice to have a goal... although I can't quite decide if the goal has me.
Namaste

Wow, You've been busy!! Wish we had a rain barrel. Of course, there is nothing to put in it.

Summer is foggy, muggy, hot, windy and VERY dry. Currently have a cold. DH brought it home to me. Soooo not happy! Learning how to use tea tree oil for it.

Capture the bunnies for meat?

I ended up growing a tomato plant. Figure if I harvested 3 tomatoes from it, I've recovered my cost. Many small green tomatoes, plant is dying off.

Oh, planted a green onion I got from the produce section (b/c I had too many of them) and it is growing like a weed! Never knew one could get so big. However, don't know if it will go to seed or if it tastes good. While watering it, tomato plants started growing from last years tomato. LOL Will see where it all leads.

Also planted Mint in it's own container so I can have mint tea. Almost feel guilty about watering them all. Using house water for some of it.

Hi MZZ,

Saw your post on the Leader's team. Thought I'd drop by and say, "hi" and ask how you are doing?

How's your garden?
the rabbits??

You are awesome. I see that you responded here along with other places that I had sent out an SOS. I found the following that I believe you posted:

As a result, I used to have edema until I started supplementing with pycnogenol. That's fancy for "pine bark". Now I take 160 a day, in two divided doses. No more swollen ankles. It gets into your system in 20 minutes. What do ya think???

Are things going well for you???? I see that you have been laying low for some time. I am here for ya.
