A thought occured to me today: "When are you going to use the fancy napkins?" I do not make a place setting for myself when I eat and especially not during the day. I put oatmeal in a bowl and shove it down over the sink. Then I gO gO gO until Im starving again and hurridly eat something else. Part of my healing means this has to stop. So today, even though I don't have a lot of choices in the house, I ironed a place setting, with a cloth napkin, and set my table.
It may not seem like a lot but it is. I'm acknowledging that I deserve pretty things, to be nurtured, and I'm celebrating the morning. All by myself. Cloth napkins for ME. Knowing I have to edit for 6 hours I am going to be in this spot. But even if I were painting, which tomorrow will be all day, wouldn't it be nice to have this there for me to snack on. A tier filled with things. A healthy muffin, nuts, fruit, jams. Then bring out more food for a real meal.
A little sandwich on a paper towel isn't going to cut it. I want to Live like I'm at a Bed and Breakfast. I want abundance in the morning, and all day long. My tea (Lemon Balm, makes you calm) tastes better when it's sitting there with a pretty cloth napkin.

I need a list for lunch buffets which is also what I want to serve my girls who are taking my class here next weekend. A buffet we can eat at all day. Hummus, crackers, grapes, cheese, little sandwiches. I think its good to eat like this while you are working. Keep it available so you don't have to stop painting.
Next will be Fleece Pajamas for everyday of the week and not sleeping in my clothes.
