Matt brought me some flowers when he came home from work tonight =)|
Grandma & Aunt Pat were supposed to come down from St. Joseph this morning to hang out with us, but they had to cancel due to the snow and cold. =(
I worked a LOT on a painting commission today - I should finish it up very soon now. Since it's a huge (3 foot by 4 foot) painting I don't have room by the computer to work on it, so it's too far away to point the webcam at - sorry =(
I might post some pics of it when I'm through though!
I entered two of my paintings into the New Orleans themed EBSQ show - "New Orleans Ghosts" and "New Orleans Courtyard". "New Orleans Ghosts" was a travel magazine cover last November, lol. Click below to see the pics:
Since they've already been sold they won't be in the eBay part of the show, but they get to go on the website and are eligible for the "People's Choice" voting contest. I hope I win - the prize is $100 gift certificate at MisterArt.com (few things make me happier than free art supplies!).
Our lease came via FedEx this morning from Celebration! We signed it and mailed it back (along with $1500 in deposits - ouch!). It's official now =)
in 8 years flash has bought me flowers once. they were carnations, not my favorite flower but i know how hard it is for him to go out in public without me let alone carry a handfull of flowers around. i felt very special when he gave them to me :)
i wanted to enter that ebsq showing but i iddnt have enough time to paint anything :(

Florida Dream Home
I thought you might want to register for the beautiful dream home they're giving away in Florida. Go to www.hgtv.com and register once a day.
My question is, how would the winner pay taxes on such a mansion?
I enter everyday! Isn't it a lovely house? I know exactly what you mean - Matt and I were just discussing what we'd do if we one. The approx. value is over a million dollars - I could never afford the income tax on the prize or the yearly property tax! I decided that if I won I would spend a nice little vacation there, and then I'd sell it. If necessary I'd take out a loan to cover the taxes (if I needed it right away). Then I'd sell it fast and use the money to buy a smaller home in Celebration (the place we're moving to) and then have lots of cash to pay those taxes, with a few hundred thousand left over =) Hehe - I've already made plans - I'd better win now!

magick, coincidence, luck of the draw?
How is a winner a winner? Like the Powerball, or any other game of chance, I wonder how the universe determines who will win? A person could pour prosperity oils all over themselves, light themselves up like a torch all the while chanting to some god or goddess; sacrifice an innocent virgin (yeah, right...find one first) and focus on winning, but they may never win! LOL If they do win, then they have to contend with the friggin IRS!!
Doesn't keep anyone from trying, does it? The simple fact is, SOMEONE HAS TO WIN. It might as well be one of us :-0
