Good Morning Everyone!  I can say this because I know I am up earlier than my buddies - maybe!  Actually, I haven't been to bed yet.  That will come when the thinking is over.  So, you're saying to yourself " Self, what is that woman up to?"  She hasn't posted regularly and what's that about.  Okay, I hear ya' all.  I've been doing stuff.  You know art stuff, life stuff, junk too!

Don't hate me because I procrastinate. I'm just one of those people who has about 10 projects going on all at once.  At some point what happens is that it all ferments at the same time.  It's like a continuous process for me.  Silence, while the soup is cooking, and then a quick boil over of goodies.  Soon, my love, very soon......

1...Let's see - Kittens left today from the rural areas of Michigan to the Urban roads of West Bloomfield.  Two out of the five will be adopted tomorrow and then the rest will be given the all out shot for new homes.  After that they might eventually end up at the Humane Society.  They make sure our little clan is up to snuff and places them in Pet Smart stores hoping for a loving home.  Where I live there are kill shelters and we didn't want that to happen.

2...I am taking an on-line course called TAO - Teaching Art On-Line.  Goggle it and it will be near the top of the list or use my fast hyperlink.  So far so good.  I have a lot to learn but the students and the teacher - Susan Lomuto have been very patient and helpful with us "fish out of water" types. Patience is a virtue and I'm glad they are - good teachers help everyone in the curve.  You should check this out.  It's a very interesting course.

3...Two eye glass appointments, dentist, lawyer, accountant call, doctor, and a hairdresser.  What the heck was I thinking when I scheduled these?  Gheeze, you say - Sharon - just quit whining and get it done.  Okay - optometrist 1 1/2 hours away -1 way, same with the dentist, lawyer -31/2 each way, doctor 2 1/2 each way.  Thank the heavens above the hairdresser and accountant are in the "hood" - 1/2 hour - one way.   Have I told you lately that I am not enjoying living rurally any more?

4. We'd like to get the house on the market and move.  We've lived here about 32 years.  Art clutter aside (and there is a Everest size mountain of that stuff) can you just imagine the accumulation made through raising three children and having run a business out of what looks like another small house (studio) in our backyard.  (Bang my head here - over and over and over).  What am I going to do with all of this life accumulation?  It's daunting.

5. I have been using the on-line course to work on a free tutorial.  As soon as I figure out how to get it posted so it's easy for you to pick up - I will.

6. I've been making some new tin earrings - mixing up the tin, steel, and sterling.  I love the look and hope everyone else will when the small collection is complete.  Maybe another week.  I am really busy with TAO and want a full dozen different designs before I show you.

Have A Great Day Everyone - Make satisfying art and take the time to smell the new grass growing and a fresh breeze too!

Oooh, you have been busy, but turning into an insomniac never helps when you have a million things to do. Get some sleep! :)
