Sounds Heavenly

Since I returned from my trip to Oregon, I have spent the majority of that time sleeping, laying in bed, and occasionally watching tv under layers of blanks on the couch.  Sounds heavenly, right?

Nope.  It's been miserable.  It's been a few years since I've been this sick and hopefully I won't go through this again for another few years.

The good news is I'm feeling a lot better.  If I were to assign a number to it, I'd say that I feel 70% better than I did when I woke up Tuesday morning.  I'm coughing a lot less and the headache is gone, but I'm still producing some phlegm.  Luckily I'm smack dab in the middle of my holiday break, so I have the luxury of treating this cold the right way.

Hopefully I'll be well enough to walk around and do a little holiday cleaning by tomorrow.  The thing I look forward to the most is sitting down and opening up the stack of care packages I had been saving for Christmas.

The day I left for Oregon, I did manage to open and scan a Christmas PWE from Jon over at A Penny Sleeve For Your Thoughts, which contained the beautiful card of Daenerys Targaryen pictured above.

According to Jon, the card is part of a 10 card set featuring the artwork of Ashleigh Popplewell that was only available at the 2017 Philly Non-Sports Card Show.  There were 100 sets produced and this card represents the only Game of Thrones card in the set.

As a bonus, Ashleigh took the time to sign each of the cards on the back.

Thank you Jon for the very cool Christmas present.  I appreciate you taking the time to think of me and my fascination of Game of Thrones.  I'll look through your wantlists to see if I can return the favor as soon as I get back on my feet.

Happy Saturday and sayonara!


  1. I like Ashleigh Popplewell's work. I got one of her holiday cards this year.

  2. I'm glad you liked the card. The moment I saw her, she screamed "BUY ME FOR FUJI!", so I did. One should always obey talking, or in this case, yelling, cards :)

  3. RAZ - Looking forward to seeing some of her work. I checked out her Etsy store, but there wasn't any inventory. I'll be checking in on it from time to time.

    Jon - Thanks again. Big fan of Daenerys and her dragons.
