So much to talk about...
Today marks the beginning of purging the kitchen cabinets of my 'stuff' in preparation for the upcoming remodel. So far during the brief period of time I have spent sorting (15 minutes), I have one partially filled box of stuff to keep, one partially filled bag to donate to a garage sale and a mostly filled recycle bag. This is one daunting task but the demolishers will be here on Monday and they must have something to demolish. So far I am not feeling overwhelmed - it's only Tuesday, let's see how I feel on Friday.
As I look around my home, at all of this stuff (I cannot even say my stuff because it is just stuff), I wonder where I will store the filled boxes. My guest room is filled with bins of fabric and book cases (mind you, none of which I am ready to part with), my garage is full of garage stuff, even my room has its share of clothes that must find their way to coat hangers.
Maybe, this will be the year I truly shed all of the baggage and things that I am hanging on to, maybe...
Verizon - what can I say but %$#@! How many times must I call for them to get it right? I always connect to what seems like an intelligent, well meaning customer service rep; they seem to understand my request, yet the follow-up emails are wrong. I will have patience and wait the full billing cycle to see if they get it right this time.
DAFA - last night was the closing reception for the members' annual show. What a fun evening! Check out the gallery section on the DAFA website.
I also sold my very first piece! This wonderful lady fell in love with 'Sunrise over Galilee' while it was hanging as the preview piece. She told me she recognized the view and wanted to add it to her collection. She hunted me down the day we hung the show and last night we delivered it to her. She took my daughter and I on a tour of her apartment and all I have to say is wow! This woman has been around the world and has a collection of beautiful fine art. She has a fabulous collection of religious icons, oil paintings, cork carvings, embroidery and other beautiful work. Everywhere you look, there is a feast for the eyes. She showed us where she will hang my piece and I am in great company - truly humbled that she wants to add my piece to her collection.
