Day Off ?!

Ha! I'm looking forward to the rest of this day & tomorrow. Time to myself these days has been elusive. Remembering to take time for myself is not as easy as you may think. It took an intervention by one of my 3 daughters ( I believe the other 2 thought she could get through to me best)to say ENOUGH!
As a full-time painter my 12 hour days of work were tiring but not as physically exhaustive as my 12 hour work days as the owner of my own bakery & cafe. Equal attention to both has proved to be frustrating and I need to accept that one will get more attention than the other ....for now.
Hopefully this way of thinking will help me not be so hard on myself and begin to enjoy each day again.
The days of longer sunlight are not far off with the beginning of Spring...my gardening,as well as my painting will be renewed....balancing the work days of baking.......hmmmmm...these are my plans........
Is that the sound of God laughing?

No, Helen --

That's the sound of God cheering you on! He loves it when you set boundaries; after all, He is the author of boundaries.

I regret I won't be able to come to your opening May 2. Mary Ann and I had already signed up to take an art class May 2 at the Newark Art Museum. But we do want to come down to TR sometime this spring, and will drop in to see you.

Hang in there, gal!

Hope your show is really great! I can't imagine painting for that much time. I'm trying to write more, though.
