I think you are right! WELL I am done painting!!!!!!That one was a real workout.. While I was painting, I was thinking I wish I had a book on tape to listen to. I am going to check around and see if there are any. Its sunday morning and I am going to take it easy and rest, my body is sore. But I feel good. You have a great day and thanks again for everything.Blesed Be.

I am painting wall in a 7 room apartment, grey walls with white ceilings and white trim. I like to paint too, But The lady I am painting for bought the wrong paint and its a pain to have to go over every thing again. I painted one wall in my room orange, it took some getting used to. It seemed really bright for a while, but now when I see it I just smile,So I guess thats a good thing. Then I did the living room in a dark burgandy. It looks pretty good. I went to Texas last year, and everywhere you look colors just pop out at you . So I was Inspired.

It was gorgeous here too...I can't wait to see it tonight! It's "supposed" to be another clear night, so hopefully I'll get a good view!

What are you painting - like painting the house, or like on a canvas painting? I love painting the rooms in my house, I like bold colors. I am kind of getting a chakra color motif...LOL Happy Painting!!

Tina, I'm new and learning as well (and always have my face in a book lately), and am finding lots of guidance in the Complete Idiot's Guide to Paganism (McColman). I'm only about a quarter through it, but it's clarified a LOT for me in terms of the details of my path (and preferences, etc.). I've also picked up Paganism by the Higginbotham's but haven't read it yet - I'll let you know when I do...

Happy learning!!

As far as books, I would recommend ANYTHING you can get your hands on by Scott Cunningham or Dorothy Morrison. They are both time-tested authors, and both have an array of books in many different interest areas. Look on Ebay, many times you can get "lots" of several books for the price of 1 new book at the bookstore. Just be sure and magickally cleanse them when you get them, you never know what kind of negativity hangs around someone's house, and you don't want that influencing your home or your magick.

A good website that I frequent is paganpath.com I have belonged to it for years, and there is a great community of people there, as well as a wealth of knowledge. Witchvox is always good for networking and articles as well.

Blessings everyone!
Lady C

Haven't had much plans for the weekend. Your temperture was warmer then my here in the Central Valley we only reached about 67 degrees. You should never dread the Fall or Winter. I understand it might be a hassel there in the Chicago area. But it can be the most mystical time of the year. The books that you listed are some very good ones to read. Are you in a coven or do you practice one your own? If you practice on your own your might wanted to get Wicca: A Guide for the Solitary Practitioner by Scott Cunningham. Just about any of Scoot Cunningham's books are good. And Witch's Notebook: Lessons in Witchcraft by Silver RavenWolf is helpful. Those should give you a good start. I will get you some websites to check out.

You have a good Sunday. And remember that you are never alone on the joureny through life. Blessed Be, So Mote It Be. Lin

I had the same problem a couple of years ago before gas prices went up. It is like you do a favor for one friend and its another and another. What I did was just not be so available . When someone asked if I could pick something up I would tell them that I could until the next time I went to the store. If they caught leaving I would tell them that I wasn't head that way no matter what they wanted. I am not real go at direct confrontation so I go around it.

Hope that helps.

I need some advice, I have been turned into a taxi service and I`m not quite sure if there is a nice way to get out of it without hurting anyone`s feeling`s. But enough is enough! I feel as if I am being taken advatage of, I got up at 6:30 am and took my friend to the Dr. ,went to the store for my neibor, then to pick up stuff for another friend. Its like it just never stopped all day, one after another. I mean I have no time to do the things I want,and by the time I got home this evening its, 11:39pm. And I`m am beat I dont mind helping people out, but most of these people are able to do these things for them selves. Do you think they are taking advantage of my kindness?
DESPERATLY SEEKING ADVICE, TINA

Well I did it! I went To Ballys and got a free 2 week membership so that should jump start the fat burning process, I had a 4 week pass but they said since I had used one in Jan. of last year I couldnt have another 4 weeks for free. But thats not what they told me last year. Thats O.K. I really wont have time to go for that long anyway, I have lots of things to do before the snow comes.
Talk to you tomorrow. Tina

I grew up in Chicago and remember it well, especially all the traffic! And I remember the Grant Park Fountain, where we taught Mom to scream into the fountain when she was missing Dad too much, after he died.
What's up this week? Preparing for All Hallows Eve, we taught the 11-month-old grandson to say BOO! we say it first and he replies. So sweet. I will make a pumpkin/squash soup, health permitting.
