Freaky Friday the 13th

Anything freaky happen to you today on this Friday the 13th? The only freaky thing that happened to me today is that I came to the realization that blogging may become an addiction, a "A.d.d." thing! I love to read people's blogs. In a way I feel it rude & disrespectful not to. Freaky weird...maybe. It's hard to just take a peek. So blogging has become time consuming and has kept me from painting or housework that needs to be done. Some are so interesting and some have Etsy shops, so I get to read, window shop & see people's art & crafts, which I love. My husband is a lucky guy because I hate regular shopping. I like shopping online though and consider paying the shipping a bonus just so I don't have to go out & spend hours scouring the isles & racks. I've been lucky so far and have not had to return many things that didn't fit or I didn't like. I did go shopping today to the dreaded Costco. Went in for 2 things and came out with a cart full. I took my husband with me and he is the shopper! Our BelAir grocery has remodeled and added an online cart. You go online, pick out groceries you want, they put it in the cart, you pull up in your car and WA LA, like a fast food restaurant! Not sure I would ever use that service, as it would take me just as long going through the site as it would to just go there and shop, however, if I was throwing a dinner party and needed a few things it might come in handy. I must admit I would feel silly sitting in the ecart parking space waiting for the bag boy to wheel out my cart. I haven't seen any pull up into the ecart parking place that's right in front of the store either. I did work on a few paintings today, and sold one on Ebay. No pictures of new art to show you today. Humm...I guess that's kinda freaky!

I spend a great deal of time reading blogs as well. Since leaving NYC I've replaced eaves-dropping and people watching with blog reading. I've 'met' some interesting people, I guess it's tantamount to your shopping. The strain on my eyes is worth not having to be rude if it doesn't work out.

I must confess to being addicted as well. It does seem to be a type of voyeurism, doesn't it? Yes, I also find my artwork does suffer for it! We won't even mention the housework - I have become a 5 minute, fast tidy, before hubby comes home kind of housekeeper!! Your artwork is fantastic and I just love your blog.
