Gosh, no threads yet? This is a first! I woke up at 5, thoughts racing about the things I have to do, and decided just to give up and get up. I found 4 things I was looking for, and that calmed me enough to send me back to a peaceful sleep! Of course, I stayed up. I've got to finish another large watercolor today, photograph it and email it, get a diff watercolor matted, drop it off at a client's ofc, box up a painted tile for a client and ship it, buy a new cell ph for easy child for Christmas, and pick up difficult child's new computer (a friend put together an upgrade, new case, huge memory, etc., for $150). I finished a cheesy Manhattan nightscape yesterday for the owner of our fave Italian restaurant, so difficult child, husband and I had a free dinner last night. I'm going to get my neck adjusted today. And maybe go back to bed ... The sun isn't up yet and the little section of lariope and the trellis that I decorated are glowing with tiny Christmas lights. It's so peaceful. Let the day begin!
