What are you grateful for?
I was up late last night so this morning when I was suppose to get up I dug deeper into my covers and slept until almost eleven. A hot cup of coffee with lots of milk and a warming cup of oatmeal with apples and walnuts I found the energy to go out into the frigid temperatures and head down to my studio. I am discovering that I enjoy the quietness of Saturdays...when I can play my music loud if no one is working...and I have the whole place to myself. Well today the wedding planner for the caterer was meeting with two young promising couples so for a short time I had to behave :O}.
The second couple had an adorable son and making wedding plans was not high on his agenda so I offered him an art kit...Sandy those kits were a genius! He sat quietly and drew his new home ... and explained how he liked living out here in the country, they just moved here from the big city of Columbus. Before I knew it everyone was gone and i played my new Amy Speace CD's...all four of them for four hours straight. I straightened the work table and collected the materials for my Claire and Charlotte to use on Monday morning. I feel the teacher coming out when I have these small class sessions. I want to have everything and more there and ready to explore. We are making Pet Portraits and they have about three different avenues to explore. Just having a quiet place to myself to sort and rearrange my art stuff to my heart's content. Simply yummy!
I went out in the more bitter cold in the dark to find a perfect birthday gift for my darling Morgan Elizabeth who is two today but we will celebrate tomorrow .. I think this might be the third of fourth celebration but at the age of two one cannot celebrate too much. I had a steaming hot chocolate and macaroni and cheese dinner. My life is simple but the pleasures are great. Stay warm and toasty and I will see you in the morning. Imagine and Live in peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart
