Is it too late to say that I’m thankful to you who come by and read TPH? Thanksgiving just came and went here at TPH. But I hope it was a lovely one for you all! I did a little cooking in partnership with Whole Foods to celebrate in a nontraditional way with a portion of our family. More on that later…
Speaking of nontraditions: do you feel like your life is an experiment from the norm? Ours has been one ever since our first child was born. And now there is a new experiment brewing over here at TPH that consumes my waking moments. I’m cooking, but I’m thinking about it. I’m driving, but I’m thinking about it. Rapt contemplation!
Our latest experiment to afford me more painting time is, uh, not faring so well. And the need is becoming so needy and huge that it hurts me. Just when I’ve convinced myself that I am being selfish, I realize that this need is about as vital to me as breathing and sleeping. So I am devising a new way to fit it in around our life. A new experiment to try at least.
One way is blogging less, which I’ve been doing anyway to accommodate homeschool, “hotel” management, and occasional gallivanting. So I’m contemplating what to do. I love blogging and it is satisfying, but it steals time from painting. So maybe I’ll ease up and post once a week, twice? Not sure. In the meantime, I have lots upcoming to share…horrible timing and all now that it is officially Christmastime and I hardly have time to pluck my eyebrows these days. But stay tuned!
The new experiment goes into action in early 2011. I’m excited. Nervous. Thankful for the support of my family. I’m thankful that I married a man who is willing to be a little nontrad with me. It’s definitely not always easy, but it is natural for me. Thankful. So there you go, the Thanksgiving post you should have had last week.
Do you have any experiments in the lab these days?
