Once I got over my morning crankiness in part due to the fact that I for the SECOND time this week, dropped a package in the package box slot without the postage! And then to top it off, I got the same postal employee to help me open the box, who asked me if I was the same person that did this last week, and then proceeded to ask me if I have the rest of my business under control. Good Lord.
Let me start this blog post again: my morning crankiness was gone as soon I came home from my morning shipment "walk" with the Lu, and my friend Cathy was happily painting in my dining room/studio! Today was our painting day! And she was happy, not only because she was painting (without parenting simultaneously~although I missed little Annabelle today) but also because Sean made her one of our signature coffee lattes.
So, a glorious day of creativity it became ~ the best kind. And the two of us painting together, reminded me of when I visited Cathy in her Venice studio several years ago, to paint with her ~ at a time when I could only dream of this work as my living. It's little moments like these, when you snap out of your crankiness and realize just how far you've come and how truly glorious (my word of the day) your life is. Cathy lives in NY now, so it has been such a treat to have her here again for a visit this last week. (Oh, and let me not leave out one of the best parts of today, the fact that I'm writing this from my bed with a cat sound asleep and snoring on my leg and foot, now if that doesn't inspire you to leave your office job...?)
Let the painting begin...
...and it's finished and beautiful, as are all of her paintings! And, Cathy looks so cute with her baby bump ~ and now I sound like a Hollywood tabloid reporter...
Hope you've had a good Monday too! Maybe even a creative one?!
Oh, and I meant to tell you that I'm "technically" on a little vacation this week. Sean has the week off from teaching and we've decided to vacation from home, a novel idea. So, I'll see you when I see you ~ here at the ol' blog...especially with that podcast I've promised!
