Is it possible to be grateful for something I don't have?
Patience. Not my most highly rated virtue. Which is maybe why the Universe is blessing me with so many opportunities to learn it.
Our mason came up and told us that he don't think cement can be poured before mid-February this year.
The thermometer has not gone much above freezing in weeks. The snow outside is a solid. The humidity high. Warming the house is our primary task. Warming the studio follows suit.
I am waiting for art supplies from Germany, because I cannot find them in Italy. There is a hang up with the shipping. Without those supplies I cannot advance - either in making art for the on line shop or for the new room.
I busy myself with the things I can do. I can make new cards to go out with my shop orders. From gold leaf. That swirly one in the second photo is a d. I think that might be my new logo. What do you think?
The oven is on and the tiles are firing. I should be able to open the oven on Monday morning. Patience.... opening the oven too soon is always a mistake. Always.
There are so many things I want to do. The list is impossibly long. But to start, it needs to be a few degrees warmer. I need my supplies. The ground needs to thaw. I need to thaw. Then the energy will flow on its own. I know this. But I seem to need to learn it. Again and again.
Thank you, Universe, you have proven your point. I will close my eyes and wait for the moment to come to me.
