The Moon is a card of magic and mystery - when prominent you know that nothing is as it seems, particularly when it concerns relationships. All logic is thrown out the window.
The Moon is all about visions and illusions, madness, genius and poetry. This is a card that has to do with sleep, and so with both dreams and nightmares. It is a scary card in that it warns that there might be hidden enemies, tricks and falsehoods. But it should also be remembered that this is a card of great creativity, of powerful magic, primal feelings and intuition. You may be going through a time of emotional and mental trial; if you have any past mental problems, you must be vigilant in taking your medication but avoid drugs or alcohol, as abuse of either will cause them irreparable damage. This time however, can also result in great creativity, psychic powers, visions and insight. You can and should trust your intuition.
Here it is! A finished object. This yarn came from my dear cousin who also thinks yarn has feelings and this was some sad yarn that was purchased at Murphy's back in the day for $1.69/skein and then ended up in someone's yard sale. It is very happy now and grinning like the Cheshire cat.
didn't know if the yarn would go together since there is a pink, a purple and a variegated tan/grey/cream. This was the first go with the yarn and the pattern worked out perfectly for the yarn. It didn't fight me along the way and it was a quick and easy project. That told me that it is what it wanted to be. DS Will snuggled under it all last evening. Thanks Ruthie!
Saturday was my business grand opening party. Of course, that was not the only thing I had to tackle that day. I needed to find tiki torches for the party to ward off the gigantic swarm of mosquitos from our very wet summer. I also needed to go to the grocery store in order to make the potato salad and baked beans. But first we had to go to DGB's first flag football game. Here is a pic of Mr. Jock:
looks ready to pounce. Uncle Will has been working with him to understand what he is supposed to be doing out on the field.
The business party went well. It got some people's attention and I have a list of about 12 people that I need to sit down with to see how we can help them work towards investing for their future. I look forward to seeing how we're helping others - what a good feeling!
Okay, I'm off my large, rear area and I knocked out two projects just to prove it.
I bought this quilt at a yard sale for a few dollars - they had it thrown under a table. I'm a major digger at yard sales - you cannot hide your goodies from me! Not long after I bought the quilt, I found a Ralph Lauren Twin Sized Top Sheet at a thrift store for $3.00. Hmmm, I know what to do with that! Tada!
Now it'll keep someone warm while it's being loved and cared for - I love it! Check out the RL tag - hehe. Now it is a designer quilt. It has already taken a bath and is ready for some good snuggling - if only the weather would cooperate.
While I was trying to be quiet while everyone was sleeping at 5:30 a.m., I cut out these long "Jams" for DGS Brendan. I picked up the fabric in the remnant bin when I stopped by Hobby Lobby to return a frame. These cost me $3.50 and my Sunday afternoon. I still need to cinch the waist but I need an appearance from DGB in order to do that. I think GB will love them. Since we have GB during the weekday evenings, we plan on hitting the fabric store and letting him pick out fabric for him and GrandDad Jams. DH's mother loves to sew up DH's Jams and made him and GB matching Buzz Lightyear ones a few years back. After the fabric store we'll head over to Nana's and take her some dinner. It'll be a fun evening and I don't have to do the sewing!
Thanks for booting me off my butt, Ruthie. All that reading has been making my eyes sore - this was a welcome breather.

Wow - had a splendid time with my DSIL, Kay, last weekend. We hauled it down to San Antonio and spent quite a few hours drinking dem beers and enjoying the sights. They had spinners, silk harvesters, corn shuckers, wine makers, lace makers:
they even had a representative from overeaters anonymous in attendance!
Sorry, just had to. If you've got the nerve to perch on the end cuz you otherwise don't fit, I'm taking a picture.
The Mariachi band was awesome and made up of a group of 8 siblings. The little boy, in the front singing, is 9 years old. There was a little girl around 7 who would creep onto the scene during certain songs. They did a great job. It was hotter than hades but the cold brews and what shade we could catch helped. We spiked our "horchata" drink with vodka for the drive home - horchata is a rice milk drink that tastes like rice pudding. We also brought home a "papusa" which is similar to a tamale. DH said he wishes I'd bought a case of them. I looked up recipes and hope to make these one day.
You're unique and flexible. And you defy any category.
Mentally strong and agile, you do things your own way. And you do them well.
You are a natural leader... but also truly a loner. You inspire many but connect with few.
