Supernatural MKAL, Clue 5 finished!

The anti-possession symbol is taking shape. Next few rows- FLAMES.
 
11/10/15 - I am caught up on the Supernatural MKAL Shawl!  Of course, we get a new clue tomorrow but for now I think I will do a little shopping and enjoy the day.  I have been helping Randy celebrate his birthday for the past several days and need a break from gorge eating.  We have been to Dave's Bar-B-Que, Ruby Tuesday, Red Lobster, Tommy G's, Steak & Shake, plus his daughter's had a surprise birthday party for him at Shouts.  He gets these coupons from the internet, birthday clubs, and doesn't want top miss a free item.  He still has a coupon for Schula's that is burning a hole in his pocket.  Since my surgery is scheduled for the 19th, that coupon will need to be used soon, before the end of the month anyway.

Barn Painting Notes - 2015

Nov 3, 2015 - A quick post so I will remember barn painting details.  It looks like 35 gallons of paint was required for both barns.  My guy used Pittsburgh Ultra Paint, exterior flat.  Why do I have such a hard time arranging these pictures? I tried with all I know to put the bottom 2 pictures side by side.  No luck.  By the way, water-based paint was used.

Little things.......................

November 1, 2015 - This little moonstone egg brings me joy.  All it takes is a little light to make it glow.  I have it in my kitchen window and every time I see it, I think of the friend who gave it to me.  That would be Ann.  She was with me at the rock and gem show in Greenfield and I commented on how beautiful it was.  When we were all ready to leave, she said, "Aren't you going to get that egg?"  I thought: "Sure.  Why not."  But when I went to purchase it, the lady said she had just sold it.  I was disappointed but I also had a feeling Ann was the purchaser and her intent was to surprise me on my birthday.  I was right on both counts.  What a lovely egg.  What a lovely friend.
 This is the same egg on the left without the light.  I think our purpose in life is to be light.  We've all heard:

You Light up my life.
You are the Light of my life.
Go to the Light.

(Any more?)  Anyway, being a light for someone can be so important.  A simple act, such as a smile, can truly have a profound effect on another and light up their day.

Another favorite "light" connection for me is a poem given to me by a Native American Grandmother.  I included it on the union square of my sacred quilt. I feel we need "light" (truth) in any union we have. 




With Love I call forth the Light
With Joy I open to the Light
With Wisdom I accept the Light
With Peace I am the Light
