This is one of my favorite paintings. I bought a large print of it back in the 90's and both my Aunt and one of my sisters liked it so much they bought it too. It is a decorating/lifestyle ideal to me. I want to have leisurely mornings sipping tea and reading the paper in my sunny breakfast room.
I am heading back to Colorado Springs next week - I'm going to have to start paying property taxes pretty soon, I'm there so often. But! After that things should calm down quite a bit. In fact the week after I get back from Colorado my niece and I are taking a long weekend and we're going to do some visiting and shopping in Eugene, OR. I can hardly wait.
Then I am going to have two weeks of leisurely mornings - two whole weeks off of work where my days will be my own. Doesn't that sound heavenly? It sure does to me.
I have a funny/great customer service story. I ordered a couple of Rebekah Del Rio cds from CB Baby and I got this email when it shipped:
Your CDs have been gently taken from our CD Baby shelves with sterilized contamination-free gloves and placed onto a satin pillow.
A team of 50 employees inspected your CDs and polished them to make sure they were in the best possible condition before mailing.
Our packaging specialist from Japan lit a candle and a hush fell over the crowd as he put your CDs into the finest gold-lined box that money can buy.
We all had a wonderful celebration afterwards and the whole party marched down the street to the post office where the entire town of Portland waved "Bon Voyage!" to your package, on its way to you, in our private CD Baby jet on this day, Wednesday, September 19th.
I hope you had a wonderful time shopping at CD Baby. We sure did. Your picture is on our wall as "Customer of the Year." We're all exhausted but can't wait for you to come back to CDBABY.COM!!
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
