25 July 2015 – Eye of God Nebula in my Living Room

This morning is a little foggy for me – coming off my Benadryl hangover.  Yesterday, after a few days of having red itchy spots showing up on various parts of my body, some very intimate, I decided I’d better figure out what the hell was going on….it’s chiggers.  I should have known after my neighbor said she got them walking from our neighborhood to Stonegate but like most people, “it won’t happen to me.”  It happened to me.   I try to avoid taking any more medication than I have to but omg!  I’ve always had a really bad reaction to mosquito bites and this is like that on steroids.  If you don’t know what chiggers are, here’s some info:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trombiculidae (aka chiggers).

ANYHEW – yesterday afternoon while Kyle and I were watching our latest favorite show Skin Wars (and of course one of our favorite t.v. personalities Ru Paul is a judge: http://www.gsntv.com/show/skin-wars/)  and a phenomena that has happened since we bought the house took on a new meaning.

When I looked at this:

closer up - isn't it amazing there is an actual area in the center that looks like a pupil?!

I realized much it looked like this:

So we decided to play a little and Kyle did this:

Kyle "I hearting" our personal nebula

Too cool right?!  I drew a pictures on the 18th and 19th of August 2012 about this.  One is my portrayal of how it looks when the light comes through the peephole on our front door and the other is of my Mary Statue watching over me in our bedroom — Eye of God Nebula coming through the clouds.

I have a Mother Mary statue that my Dad had in his workshop for years and I asked if I could have it and she’s been with me ever since. Her hands are broken and her head has come off before but she’s still intact…just like me….a survivor

What it looks like when the light comes through the peephole in our front door – mesmerizing!

Too cool not to share!

My spirit sister Sarah and I are busy collaborating on her monthly newsletter and I was able to get on her Mail Chimp account yesterday and figure out how to put it together.  We want to have it out by next Friday.  We are such a great team!  At first I wasn’t sure I’d be able to work with the program but I did and I’m proud of myself for not just throwing my hands up and giving up on it.  http://www.blessedoaks.com/ – Sarah’s website

All new things come with unique challenges but they are often like things we done before and with perseverance it’s so worth it in the end!

This is for our newsletter and aside from the feet being “weird” I like it – it’s meant to convey Empowerment – hugging yourself!

Have a great weekend!

  1. I totally like what Kyle did… it means lot :o) and I like the pendant. I hope that chiggers-bites go away, they look scary, even the color of that little buggers looks dangerous. Have a great weekend too :o)
