We nearly walked my puffy hooves off today! And wow, the weather continues to impress. Look at this view. I could win a freaking award for this shot. (Yes, she fixed my camera, thanks Hurricane.)
We peeked in shop windows, we checked out some haunted locations, we picked up a few necessary items, we chatted with locals, we helped out some tourists, we had some walking and talking To Go food, we thoroughly enjoyed the weather all afternoon. And we bought candy.
Here’s the Foreign License Plate report: New Jersey (!!!), Montana, BC (cheers!), and North Dakota. All within about two blocks of each other. Also, that NJ car was filled with University of Oregon girls (from Eugene, up here with us).
I’m going with the auto-post again (fingers crossed) and the auto-tweety because we are going out tonight.
Here’s the first of our cards from my deck that we’re going with while I’m away. A thought-provoking message for sure.
Ten of Wands ~ burdens, manageable and not.
Tens are cyclical, the coming and going of our life cycles. The new chapters in our lives are often marked by 10s. When you find dimes or Tens keep showing up, this is a sign that we are about to turn the page and move on to something new.
Wands are the brilliance of new ideas and inspirational bursts. Those ”out of the blue” brainstorms are perfect examples of Wand strength and radiance.
Usually we’d say that 10 of Wands is about being overburdened, but I’m thinking this is more indicative of carrying the workload we need to, and balancing that with what else is going on. We can shoulder our own sticks and help others when they need us to, all the while being aware of not allowing ourselves to become overwhelmed.
Like yesterday’s oracle message, this one is telling us that what we first see may not be the first impression we think it is. We can see around the load we are toting as long as we are aware of our path ahead of us. There is also a destination in this one.
Farther down this road there is something to look forward to, “look forward” is the key phrase here. Hold carefully to what we need to cart along, not letting our sticks block our view or feel like a burden. We shoulder these responsibilities for a reason, not because we are forced to but because we are capable of it.
Okay, off we go, but first one more bit of our day. Water features! We saw several gorgeous waterfalls and fountains in our city treks today. And you know how I love the water features… you guys, I am having such a great time!
