yesterday we had someone come to see the house, so my son and I went on a date to the Wired Monk for some hot chocolate, homemade cookies (i brought them, is that bad? :)), and browsing of the lego website on my laptop - this is my three-year-old boy's favourite thing to do. as we were looking at the many amazing lego creations he will never own, we frequently had to wait for a video or picture to load. he would look at me and in a very serious voice, and with a very serious face, say "patience.".
nothing's changed in my crazy life of waiting, so i won't bore you with the details. i do find that i have some extra painting time on my hands however. i've painted this beauty (pictured with my office cabinet to show the size - it's around 2x3feet. it's the same as the "succulents" painting somewhere on the right) if anyone's interested, and i'm a-hankerin' for something else. fill my palette!!
