20 Minutes Left

I'm at the Gallery today. Because God loves me very much and knows I am frail, not one customer has walked through the door. I know that's terrible for business, but I can't tell you how good it has been for my soul.

It's been an insane week. I've had moments when I couldn't remember if I went to the bathroom or not. When I've ignored my own hunger pangs long enough to not be able to remember if I was still hungry or not. It's disconcerting. But I'm sure some of you know what I'm talking about.

In the last couple of days, I have purchased a washer and dryer, a refrigerator, 11 cans of paint and hardware for curtain rods. I hope you don't find it hokey if I say I think that God just had that all out there for us with minimal second guessing. I'm still stalking a dishwasher and over-the-range microwave to complete the suite, but I feel hopeful that the right things will pop up at the right moment.

I'm not sure how much this has to do with my forgetfulness, but I've discovered the joy of SPRAY PAINT. It costs 99 cents. And it does the most amazing things. Like transforming both lamp and shade.

I accidentally deleted the picture of the 17 boxes that went out the door on Wednesday. Business has been fantastic. I sold two of my biggest mosaics on one day...just in time to buy those appliances!

Someday in the near future, I am going to sit on my couch in my own house and not be hounded by Have-To-Do's. I'm so ready....

Ness.....that lamp looks good enough to eat. About what you'll do when you don't have a "to do" list....you'll freak out because you don't have to do anything. Trust me on this one.

Ooh that lamp is beautiful...unfortunately spray paint is banned in the Chicago city limits. (Graffiti-busters).
