On Saturday was the vernissage of our painting exhibition. I had to be there to take pictures but I still felt so poorly ! I hadn't eaten very much after my stomach cramps two days before and wasn't sure if I could go or not. Finally I thought I have the choice or I sit at home and be angry with me and concentrate on my troubles or I go there, make the pictures, chat with my classmates and the visitors, and have no time to think about my miseries ! So I went !
And it was very nice, thanks to the Facebook action we had more visitors than ever and the exhibition was a real success.
Our group, the 3 girls on the right are my best friends, Nicole, Ilona and Chantal. Besides me on the right is the municipal councillor who always supports our exhibitions.

and some visitors
At 3.30 pm I was so tired, my head spun and I went home. Still I was proud of myself That I could stay that long, I had arrived at 10.30 am. I arrived home and collapsed on the sofa we had supper and I went to bed very early !
On Sunday morning when I woke up, the house was unusually silent. No meow songs from ol' Pookie and Mr. G.'s opera voice shouting "Shut up" without success as Pookie is deaf he knows it also that I am not ! I got up and noticed that his car was still there and that the shutters were still shut. The reason was, Mr. G. had caught my virus which had been a gastritis, but far worse than I, because I only had stomach cramps, he had it all. Poor men had spent the night running to the bathroom.
I still felt so tired and didn't go to the Exhibition, I also stayed home. Mr. G. did what the cats do, he slept the whole day and I watched TV. All energy gone. From time to time the phone rang, from the girls who wanted to know if I would come and help and also asking a price for one of my paintings apparently there were some people interested. One painting had been sold ! I was happy !
Nicole took my paintings home, they had a lot of work, because I was not the only one who was sick, another one and our teacher too ! They all had the same, there is a real epidemic around and the drugstores run out of medicine !
