Friday the 13th is usually always been a lucky day for me, as has the number 13. Not sure why, just have had some good things happen to me on those days. Once I won 2 rings, one carat diamonds each, on the 13th. The 13th was the first full day I had with my son, so I’ll count that one too. Did you know that we have had 3 Friday the 13ths this year?
Here’s a little interesting info on the superstition of Friday the 13th from about.com:
LEGEND HAS IT: If 13 people sit down to dinner together, one will die within the year. The Turks so disliked the number 13 that it was practically expunged from their vocabulary (Brewer, 1894). Many cities do not have a 13th Street or a 13th Avenue. Many buildings don’t have a 13th floor. If you have 13 letters in your name, you will have the devil’s luck (Jack the Ripper, Charles Manson, Jeffrey Dahmer, Theodore Bundy and Albert De Salvo all have 13 letters in their names). There are 13 witches in a coven.
Now I need to check the amount of letters in my name! phew… I’m safe!
I went to Michaels yesterday and went crazy. I bought some Martha Stewart glitter and it is so deliciously glittery I can’t wait to play with it! It’s a little pricey, but it looks so much better than the cheap looking regular craft glitter that I was used to. Her stuff is 30% off til Saturday.
Artist, dreamer, gardener and nature nut. I love iced tea, music, scary ghost movies, growing all kinds of plants especially tomatoes and houseplants and enjoying my life in the country with my husband, son and our 3 cats and my ever faithful studio dog, Zoey.
I spend my summers weeding in the gardens and the fall and winter doing art shows and painting in my studio. Spring is a busy gardening time for me as well.
I blog about my life, gardens and paintings I'm working on. I also have my work for sale on my site.
Find me in my art studio attached to my greenhouse painting all the beauty that surrounds me.
