Thursday and Christmas is beginning to disappear in my studio....
Ken brought down two cheery red plastic containers to sort and store my Christmas supplies and papers and art stuff. He is trying to ease my pain of rearranging my studio space for storage. I will clear a larger space on my work table tomorrow but I have a student visiting me at 1:00 ...I am not too sure what we are working on ? Her quilt? a painting? or a possible collage? So I hope to get in early to pack the two boxes to clear the floor space. I am already missing Christmas...many are rushing to take down their lights, or the trees, the mantle decorations ; but I am not sure I am ready to end this season so soon. I do understand the time factor and how limited the time actually is for regaining a normal schedule once again. I was kind of looking forward to sitting by the light of our tree on New Year's Eve but the living room has returned to preseason normal arrangements. I have had a holiday candle burning ...Wassail Cheer so the fragrance is filling the room with a gentle reminder that the season is changing and the new year will be arriving very soon. The skies are clear and the temperatures are dropping but still we have not had the white fluff...a soft snowfall that the children are all waiting for. I am working on Marco's first home ornament for 2011. He and Peggy and his son Carlos are now settled in their first home ...in this economy this is quite a remarkable accomplishment. I am hoping you are having a wonderful week and are ready for the last weekend of 2011. If we try real hard we can all discover or recall the blessings we have been given and look forward to gifts of our tomorrows! Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen
Am I headed in the right direction?
Which ideas, dreams, hold the most meaning for me?
Did I act on my dreams?
These are three questions that Lesley Riley shared in her blog yesterday. I feel they are pretty good food for thoughts and affirmations.
