Well it is 9:56 pm and I am getting my fix at Starbucks

If you know me I am not at Starbucks for the coffee. Not a coffee drinker. I am here for my email and blog fix. I am not good without this communication. In fact I told Candice that I prefer to communicate by email. (Horrible isn't it) Not really the complete truth but a quick note compared to leaving a phone message is what I prefer. I feel out of the loop.
Good NEWS. This is a copy of the email I received from CBS Sunday Morning:
Dear Jenny:

I just wanted to drop you a note to thank you so much for sending me your sun artwork. It's really incredible, and unlike any other sun that I've ever received.

With your permission, I'd like to send it to our graphics department, where they will record a copy of it and file it in our still store system for possible use on future Sunday Morning broadcasts.

Our sun collection grows larger and more varied each week thanks to folks like yourself who are kind enough to think of us.

Take care, and enjoy your weekend.

I was really happy to have received this from her. Made my day.
I also applied for a Creative Renewal Fellowship. Crossing my fingers for that one. The Lilly Endowment gives monies to artists to take time to travel, learn and by new equipment or supplies. I would love to get the chance to do those things. I worked on this the day after we moved. Typing on a box and then searching for a CD to burn. Of course I was down to the wire. But I got it in on time. Now the waiting begins.
Moving: Well I am in. I had to purge once I got in to the new place. No room for a couple of things and then a couple things just didn't survive the move. So this spring Ed will get a new grill. Poor grill. I am exhausted though. Nothing goes smoothly. I always expect that I will have to deal with something and one thing is that we were without phone service for 4 days and Internet will be even longer. No water for most of one day etc. It feels like home already though. When you start putting up your artwork and of course the deer head with the FEZ how could it not! I think we are going to be happy here. Very friendly neighbors and lots and lots of Dogs. Lucy has a bunch of windows to look out of now and she can run from the living room straight into the kitchen. She is a happy dog. Took more stuff to sell in my Midland booth today.
Missing my Polk Street neighbors.

Hope to blog and add some new photos on Saturday!

CONGRAT Jenny, this is awesome. It inspires me once again, but timing to make that time for art and me.
