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.
