I was gonna post the Veggie Tales video "I'm Busy, Busy" but it's not on YouTube...ha!
But yes...I'm not hiding out. Just busy!
My schedule has been absolutely CRAZY lately, and I have yet to catch up on various things of life. And I certainly haven't online.
That includes blogs, friend's websites, my OWN website...etc.
And there's a good chance that I might not EVER catch up.
But I hope I will...eventually. Maybe. We'll see.
Anyway, good things are happening, people. My work has nearly doubled, I'm on the road a good bit, and while my health issues are a daily battle, some days are better than others.
This past Saturday, I attended the Moss Point River Jamboree. I painted faces for a few hours, and did a short Bob Ross painting demonstration.
I skipped out around 2:30pm, but was there early and got more accomplished than I expected. Running on zero sleep for nearly 2 days, I think I did exceptionally well.
Sunday, I visited my home church in Pascagoula. My pastor's message was more relevant to my life than he will ever know. It did me a world of good.
Monday, I spent the day in Biloxi with my friend Stacy, pigging out on ice cream and laughing it up as we always do. And if you didn't watch the previously posted video, I also secured a once a month teaching gig at Hobby Lobby over there. It's an 80 mile round trip but I believe it will be totally worth it.
So now I have Mobile, Moss Point, and Biloxi classes coming up. Later this year, I will be adding Pascagoula and another Mobile location to the schedule.
I'm thrilled. I don't have a CLUE how I'll physically do it, but I'm THRILLED.
Art With Heart is also going well. We are growing and it's great to see the difference that is being made. Art therapy is a wonderful outlet. It reaches all ages and offers a sense of value...a sense of self-worth. There are many out there who need that. I've been there, and know the difference that it has made in my own life. I'm so happy to be a part of this organization. It is a great thing.
Another reason why my schedule has gotten crazy is that the next few months are full of festivals and shows. I want to be a part of as many as I can, although I'm limited to not being in direct sweltering heat. Periodic Paralysis + summer heat = trouble with a capital T. So I'm going to do what I can until I have to become a hermit (which is usually June-Sept). We'll see how it goes.
More to come. Hope you're having a fabulous week, friends.
