the SMOOTH move
I found a culinary treasure in my own backyard. Because leftovers are common in our house, I often send my husband back to work with them at lunch, and one of his co-workers in particular is commonly the lone “taker”. I am delighted that it isn’t wasted AND that my number of repeats of a given meal is reduced. As an unneccessary and unexpected “thank you” for all the lunches, she sent two packaged meals home with him from a local service that specializes in locally sourced, fresh made “take home meals”. They are available fresh or frozen and they are delightful. I stopped by to pick up 10 meals today… for $7 each. Woohoo! What an exciting find! I asked them how long they had been in business assuming they were new. Nope. Eight years. I have been missing out for 8 years. Wow. What have you been missing out on for years?
The end of the year always makes me cast a glance foward to the new year. I don’t make resolutions, but I do re-evaluate each year to see how I can be happier in my studio practice, how I can be happier in my personal life and how I can make my studio life and home life work better together. Recently I have really been enjoying making small works. I completed fourteen 4″x8″ pieces recently, formatting their layout for pre-selected frame sizes. I don’t usually work backwards from the frame, so that was a new experience. Are you updating your practice? This next call is one of my favorites. The deadline is very close, but it isn’t thematic, so you HAVE WORK to submit, regardless. Don’t miss out.
