Shine on Shine on

Harvest Moon!

IMG_1683

That was my best shot last night. At least it had an orange glow.  If I stare at it long enough I can see a man in the moon face.

I volunteered at the Museum all day yesterday.  Painting.  I painted until my bad shoulder started to ache.  The AmeriCorps kids all seven of them came into the museum to help paint.  The fellow that was injured in the freak accident last week was with the group.  He told me that the van that they jacked up to get unstuck fell onto his back and that he sustained soft tissue injuries but that nothing was broken.  He was on light duty…so I gave him a little paint roller and put him in charge of drips.  Everything needs two coats of paint..we are about 75% done and ran out of paint.  The paint all came from a grant..so we will try to get the same paint…if not perhaps we can match the color. 

I am tired.  Far Guy said I was “cranky”..maybe so.. it was a long day:(

  2. Congratulations on getting it almost done. Hope you can match the paint to finish the rest of it. Cranky DOES make almost everyone cranky. :-)

  8. Great photo of the moon. I love to see the "face" on the moon, but wonder why the face is sometimes visible and other times, not. It's a mystery to me because the moon does not rotate. Can you solve this mystery?

  9. Maybe Home Depot or Lowe's would contribute what's needed to finish the project. Call on volunteers to complete it. Ask high schools/local colleges if students need service hours.
    Loved the harvest moon photo!
    Peace,

  10. No orange glow to the moon here, but it sure lights up everything in the night.
    You are a dedicated soul, volunteering right after you have finished being paid for working at the museum.

  11. Great shot of the moon! Painting is not an easy job that is for sure, especially when reaching above your head.!

  12. That's a lovely golden shot - as if the moon were dipped in honey.

    Rest - that's what you need!

  13. That young man was soooo lucky!! I hope you can get paint to match. Remember--there will be so many things in that room that it won't matter if it is just close enough. ;)
    Rest that shoulder. I tore a rotor cuff (on my "good" arm by overusing it-duh!) and it is no picnic when it acts up. So glad you got the help from those kids!! :) :)

  14. Lovely shot of the moon! And I'm impressed that on one of your first days of freedom, there you are volunteering to paint. You are building up lots of good karma!

  15. Glad to hear you at least had help this time...seven! Well, maybe six and a half...that young guy in the freak accident was certainly fortunate nothing more than "soft tissue" sustained damage. Wow. On his back!

    Hope you feel better, soon!

  17. What a girl to go back in and volunteer a few days after the paying job ended.

  18. What?! No pictures of the paint crew? The harvest moon was incredible and very light outside all night. Dirt told me I was missing out on several more hours of outside work. I told him.... well you can imagine, after all Far Guy said you were crabby after your long day.
