Time flies

 After Mimi's recent illness, I have made myself a promise which I started last week. I picked up my paint brushes and began painting at least 3 hours a week. Mimi had a fall the first of June and that an other issues made for a brief stay in the hospital. After she returned home, we had home health this and home health that.A constant fanning of the doors and the sound of the door bell.  Finally she is through with the therapists and now only the wound health care nurse is coming 2 days a week. Therefore, instead of spending time on the computer to recharge my batteries, I knew without a doubt that painting was the answer. Do any of yawl watch Joel Osteen? I saw a sermon about 2 weeks ago and it was about not letting the world affect your happiness. He eluded to the fact that we are a boat and the world is the ocean and when we get a hole in the boat, well it sinks. Also, the rough waters of the seas are on top and if you go down deep enough, you will experience calm water.Rather good advise.  I still need to tweak here and there on Miss Fall but I just wanted to share with you out there in blog land.  
Our local ACE hardware store has a sidewalk sale every year around this time to get summer items gone so they will have room for Christmas.( CHRISTMAS DISPLAYS COME OUT TOO SOON FOR ME.) This is the little glass table I picked up at 50 per cent off. I went back on the first Saturday of the sale and picked up a 5 gallon bucket for five dollars and the whole amount goes to the Children hospital at Vanderbilt. Everything you could fit into the bucket that was not on the sidewalk sale was 20 per cent off. I got several items that I use around the house. 
There are two Kitty Justice thoughts today. 
The Kitty Justice is to get in your boat and paint. Also, the Kitty Justice is to find ways to save and help others in the process.

Good to hear from you. Sorry about the health issues and glad things are getting better. Love that you have decided to paint do beautiful work.

It's very difficult these days not to be affected by the despicable acts that are occurring in our world today. It is for me, anyway. I'm feeling completely gutted after the latest atrocity at the hands of the the despicable IS monsters.

Painting is a good way to become lost in another world. Perhaps I, too, should pick up my brushes again.

I hope all the health issues are now, or will be very soon in the past.

Lovely glass table!That's a real bargain!
I definitely agree with your two thoughts: use your talent,to make your life more meaningful, and do some charity in the process.

I GET VERY ANGRY WHEN I THINK ABOUT ISIS. Each morning we awake to another murder or some other horrible crime so yes I get lost in the smell of paint and brush strokes. Go ahead pick your brushes up and join me. My MIL is improving daily and so is my beautiful dog, Maggie. Maybe this fall we can all roll in the leaves. Peace

Thanks Duta. Each one helps the soul. Peace

If I am on a boat that sinks I don't want to go down deep to find calm water, I want air!

Jumping ship, NOT you have to adapt, overcome, and improvise just like Gunny Sargent Highway tells you.
Actually, I try never to go under water not even a little bit.
