Matias, 15, my director and editor.
Tatiana, 12, my producer (she provided the camera).
Week 2: a visit to the Casa Carnacini, a local art museum. It was the living digs of Ceferino Carnacini, a painter. Still has a lot of his and his friends´work in the house itself in the form of murals and ceiling paintings. This month they are having an exhibition by Carlos Paez Vilaró.
BIG paintings with bold acrylics. So totally my style. :)
Tati by the one of the pictures of the catalog.
Not actually artist dates but playfull dates. We were without power so we played a lot of board games. Yay.
A visit to the mall with my mom and the kids.
3) Homework Assignments. This is where I wrote so much, specially compared to my 2007 version (which I was careful not to read till now, so I was not influenced by it).
3.1. Affirmative reading
I still skim over them, but I´m not as dissmissive as I was.
3.2. Where does your time go?
I don´t have a job outside the house anymore, so that went off my list. And also all the driving time. Food is still high on the list. I like the way I subdivided it in 2007: buy/process/dishes. This time around I´m taking all the housechores on me (no more hired help) so I got: cleaning, grocery shopping and cooking with subdivisions. Kids and on line activities still going strong but more organized.
3.3. Twenty things
It took me a long time to come up with them. In fact, I wrote the list in three separate times. Give me a minute to check what I have in common. *Paula notices she is humming the "We are Furiously Dangerous" song chorus while she is writing her exercise. Funny*
Ok. Done. Only 12 things in 2007, 18 this time around. Wooooow! I didn´t put "Taking pics"! What happened to this Happysnappy?!?!?!?!. Getting mail and putting puzzles together also disappeared from my list. Coffe and TV are on both (although I had completely cut my tv watching time, some series like CSI creeped back in). More art related things in 2011. On line chat was changed by FB messages.
3.4. Two things
It seems I´m quite good at doing things I like. ;)
Nope, sorry girls. I was not going to "waste" my paper and ink on a repetitive thing. I did write about the blurts that came with the three affirmations that caused the most resistance.
3.6. Imaginary lives
Are you curious about my lives this week? Here they go: astrologer/tarotist, paperback writer, something for Disney (I still don´t know what), researcher for an American TV company, researcher for documentaries (think History channel).
3.7. Life pie
I made 4 concentric circles. Spirituality is the only area I´m on the outer circle. Not because I have everything clear but because I´m working on it. I´m showing up. Again and again. Exercise is on the smallest. I know I have the potential for more but just don´t want to.
3.8. Ten tiny changes
The six from the 2007 version: Two were done. Ouch, after four years learning Photoshop is still on the list. The new ones, all small doable practical things like buying a new plant for my entrance hall.
3.9 Choose one change: change the pics on the mantel with newer ones.
3.10. Do it. *sigh* Forgot about it. There´s always next week. :D
