The 1 Thing Today

This is a 2 minute post. Today, the 1 thing that would make me happiest to accomplish ( my horizontal planning worked this morning) is this part of the painting will be refined. It needs to go darker. It's a tucked away spot that needs to be subdued, but strong. This morning it spoke to me loudest. The other 2 on my list of 3 Most Important tasks are steaming the silks and wading through the mountain of email. I am making tea, my delete finger is ready, the paint is practically mixing itself, and the cheesecloth for wrapping the silks is on its way into the house. But this little piece of the painting, that's what will make me happy today. I'll update later this afternoon.

What I forgot to do this morning...
Maybe EVERY morning...must make a sign or something to remember to think of THE ONE THING for the day.
Wish you lived closer...
Very close to remind me...ahem
At least SOMEONE is on track today!
Bonne Painting!

Hi Janice,

I haven't seen you around so I'm checking up on you. I get attached to people.

You're painting, that's all that matters.

Talking 'bout email..
I figured if I could get the email set up on the laptop, THEN I can relinquish the old desktop and install the new one.
One step at a time...now at least I know what I have to do to get up and running.
My oldie was sooooooooooo sloooooow!
20 gigs vs. 160!!!

Better put on my helmet for the new baby!
Tanks for the moral support!

Whoa!! That's a light speed change...it'll knock the schlag right off of the chocolate chaud!! :))))
Those transitions, aughh. One step then another... hard to feel comfortable with that kind of interruption. Good plan on the email.
