Deep Cleansing Breaths

These things you see, the tea, the apple, will be gone soon because I am munching on them as I sit and write this morning. Life and stuff won yesterday, not the cakes, not the paintings. Those I get to do today. But here's what's cool: I finished two big tasks that I had promised myself I would. And that feels so freeing. So good. They weren't easy, but they were a step forward. You see, there are changes coming.

Someone has a book out about frogs and tackling the hard things. I think the idea is to do the tough stuff, get it over with and then do the next thing. Behind the scenes I have been doing just that. I am not a technical wonk, I am an artist. So I have some great guys doing what they do to make me a better virtual home. I am hoping you will bear with me during the transition. It may take a bit of doing. I have no idea what exactly is involved, but it is going to look so much better and will be easier for people to use.

So yesterday, Pencil won. We did things that involved orderly ducks, or ordering ducks, or , oh, just getting the big ducks on their way. But Brush and Pen are wanting a rematch today. Yep. So here I am, sipping tea, eating an apple, taking deep cleansing breaths, while they are pleading their cases. Both are very good at it...yes, I hear you.. and on the other hand.... uh oh, Brush is opening the refrigerator... no fair...

Pen how are you going to top that?

Honestly, it's like central casting around here, diva, diva, diva...demanding little buggers. No we are not ordering from Craft Services. This is NOT Hollywood. Seriously. Yes, we can have music...Okay , I 'm coming...gotta go folks...they're union scale, but pushy...

Pencil divas...
brush divas...
apple divas (was it a Crispin?)
Believe me they are all better than having a REAL OPERA DIVA on the premises prancing around.
Just get out that whip and let them know who is boss!
Give them a good sharpening..that usually works.

A good sharpening...ROFLOL... on my agenda today actually. LOL. Was just at your place. ;-)

A Brush with Color said...

LOL--
brush is opening the refrigerator, eh? You know--brush does the same damn thing here...all the time. What's that all about? Is that a keyboard back there? How teeny and wonderful. Your apple and tea would be a good still life, cutie. Hope you took a photo or have another apple to set that up!

You know you're right. I'll save the photo. Although I do have another apple. That's a "chiclet" keyboard by ...wait for it...Apple. LOL. It won a design award this past year. Great little thing. Love to use it. Takes up NO space.
Brushes are pesky that way. I am painting pumpkin and cream don't cha know. Thank goodness spoon has not noticed. ;-)

Ooh couch and TV.. I hope it was mindless TV and a wonderfully cozy couch...boy does that sound good. I tivo'd Tim Ferriss's Trial By Fire. I am thinking it would be totally ironic to lie on the couch and watch someone ELSE test themselves... and by ironic I mean really cool.
