We rode 16 miles today. I want to say that again, in case you thought your eyes viewed the number wrong. We rode SIXTEEN miles today. On our bikes. Me and Dan. 16 miles. On bikes.
Okay. Now I can move on. I hope. I’m very tired, so maybe there won’t be much more moving this evening. We pedaled home, changed clothes, and went out for grocery shopping (plus a few other items in the same complex).
Did I mention how tired I am?
A few days ago I woke up to those chairs* in my living room. With the FREE signs taped just like that. I love them. Just not sure where I’m going to put them. (They were on the side of the road in Mayberry, along with a very large, very faded, red table umbrella.)
*I will take another shot with better perspective, so you can see how small they really are. They fit me great!
On our card altar today it appears as though we have Toni’s version of Kwan Yin. With a bit of the Virgin of Guadalupe thrown in for good measure.
“Goddess Of Compassion ~
Self-criticism is diminishing your sense of self-worth.
The Goddess Of Compassion has shown up in your reading today to ask you to be more compassionate towards yourself.
At the core of every living thing only love exists. Your personality and the role you play in this life is only transitory and ultimately, an illusion. All that you perceive to be good or bad are necessary aspects of who you are; positive and negative qualities exist in everyone and in everything.
A more accurate description of positive and negative is Yin and Yang, for in reality there is neither positive nor negative, only opposite qualities which together make us whole.
Self-criticism is diminishing your sense of self-worth and keeping you in the illusion that you need to improve in order to be worthy of success, happiness, and fulfillment. Have compassion; love and accept all of who you are, as you are, and stop striving for something that is impossible to attain. Through love your life magically transforms.”
Again, I was guided to go with this choice. Which, coming from who I know these messages are coming from, is pretty damn amazing and spot on.

We found out today when and where the upcoming Celebration Of Life (funeral) will be for my friend. I don’t know if I can attend it. I couldn’t go to my sister’s, it’s unlikely I’ll be able to show up for this one. It is more probable that some combination of my children will represent us.
Kewl Kate came through with some news recently, she got the PayPal to work! I don’t know how, but I think she just typed in my e-mail address into their site, and I popped up. So, if anyone needs a card reading or something stitched, you can try this payment option as well.
I won’t be including a “pay this way” button yet, but I’ll rewrite the info on my Services page soon, to reflect this. Be aware that they do charge me a percentage for this convenience, though.
