We got a late start tonight, because Daniel and I had to spend most of this afternoon arguing over several totally stupid and pointless non-issues. Also, the Wee Walnut had to go in for a new battery. We tried to recall when we got one for it last… it had to be before the backseat fire/iced tea incident, which was at least eight (?) years ago.
I made some notes while I passenged after we dropped it off, but now I can’t find them, unlike the milk list, that was a completely different situation. Suffice it to say, we were just being our truly ridiculous selves and eventually worked it out. The entire day was simply on the tardy side. So now I have to rush in order to make my (self-imposed) deadline to get this post up.
We got a free treat (thank you Empress for making me sign up for that) and I scored us a magically close parking place, so we wandered around on campus for a bit, enjoying our afternoon and our dessert-before-dinner. My tendonitis is totally on the mend, it continues to get better every day. This sight-seeing tour and the later neighborhood trudge proved that we’ve gone on to experiencing less pain than more in a 24 hour period. So that’s very encouraging.
He told me, as we neared the yard where those huge leaves fell onto the sidewalk and mixed with their tiny brethren, that my last picture did not convey their vastness, so we tried again. I said that maybe because it was so damn dark it might not work, but ya know, he countered with the fact that my camera does have a freaking flash. (See? That’s the kind of crap we bickered over.)
Seriously, we shouldn’t even be allowed out on some days. Or even stay in, for that matter. We did get this shot for Robin though.
She wanted to know what that purple thing was behind the old backpack I showed you. It’s this quilt. (Which I’m fairly certain I’ve shared before, but what the hell, I made Dan come upstairs to do this, so we better run with it.) It’s the first one I ever made (correctly), in a class, held in a store that no longer exists. It’s considered “crib size” or something, and it’s shit. The batiks are too close for a good contrast. Sue, what’s the pattern? Irish chain maybe? I made it about the time my sister was dying, so I’ve blocked most of those memories completely out. Also, it’s shit. So, there’s that.
We toss it over a chair at our kitchen table and I use it as the background for most of my small-item photography needs, because it’s kind of on the neutral side. Also, like I just said, it’s over that chair, so it’s always handy. And I’m inherently lazy. This is the one I mentioned (a month or five back) I wanted to replace with the not-even-close-to-being-done (but cut out) quilting project that I have pinned to the sewing room curtains. Yeah, should get right on that. Hey, I know what… let’s just do the damn card and move along.
Vision ~ Guardian Angel.
This is a message about honoring your vision. It asks you to trust the mental images that you have been receiving, as they are answers to your prayers. Your prophetic visions will bring blessings to you and your loved ones. You know that they are Heaven-inspired because of their loving nature. Only follow the messages that ask you to act on behalf of God’s love.
Your guardian angel is helping you clearly see the truth within your present situation. This involves a dual perspective. First, hold the intention to see the Divine light within everyone and everything. This helps the highest possible outcome to occur. Have faith.
Second, allow yourself to see the earthly and human truth in this situation. Is someone or something out of balance with integrity? Admit this to yourself, and clearly witness the perspectives and motivations of everyone involved.
This can also be a message from your angels to have your physical vision checked or corrected. Prayer can help by healing your sight and also by leading you to the best eye care professional for your needs.
Your angels surround your physical and spiritual vision with light. Look through their eyes and you will see the best within yourself and life itself.”
Standard Doreen disclaimers apply. Although I think we can all agree that maintaining faith, and keeping our hope alive, is a worthwhile reminder, no matter what words are used to get the message across. One last thing, I adore this illustration. A. Lot.
REALLY last thing: and super difficult for me to say, but well, if you’ve had a card reading from me in the past month or three, or purchased a purse/quilted bag, and I have not e-mailed you about receiving your payment, umm, that means I haven’t received the payment. Sorry to do this uncomfortable business here, but for some reason, it seems I have to. Thank you, for indulging me, and for allowing me the opportunity to help you.
