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:
I realized much it looked like this:
So we decided to play a little and Kyle did this:
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.
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!
Have a great weekend!
