Oh we are a fun bunch. Traveling with Dan and one of the kids is a bit of a new experience for me. For so many years it was us and them, three of them. The last Grand Adventure down here was with Empress (and Max, of course), this time it’s with J.D. When we were in Seattle it was all Hanna all the time. Spending time with my witchlings, one on one like this, is different for me. Good, but different.
Here is what Daniel spotted from the deck while I was racing around the house trying not to forget shit. I sent him out there with the compost so Emmy wouldn’t have to deal with fruit flies while we were gone. (Turns out, all this NATURAL eating creates lots of smelly, highly biodegradable, waste.)
While we were driving, ever more south, my sister-in-law Michelle sent me that above view of some artisan’s work on Pier 39. They were touristing it with Auntie Kris (and Son) who is also here for the Blessed Event. Oops, have I NOT told you all about the wedding? Remember that Dan has two sisters, right? Younger version (aforementioned Mick) has one daughter, Sara. Her. She’s getting married today. To Robert.
We stopped for fuel, both people and car type, right before we hit the state line. Across the street (because ya know, we had to take a short constitutional around the parking lot) was a row of businesses. Way cool history here, I’m sure.
There were angry looking clouds. Which we thought were so picturesque that we needed to document them.
And then we arrived. It was late, so we didn’t stay up long (wedding!). The Inn here is quite full-up so Jade slept on the couch. Here (above) is the coffee table near his make-shift bed. Right, I don’t try to explain it, merely share.
Emperor and The Queen of Wands
This is a nice couple, so much balance here. He has the foundation (4) and she has the energy (wands). It gives us a nice example of how working together can get big projects done. He has an inner strength, as well as the knowledge, needed to accomplish anything. She has a glowing inner core, a warming radiance that welcomes and cares unconditionally.
When we apply these elements to what’s going on in our lives right now, we will be guided by their team-work and cohesion. Allow them both to help, it’s what they’ve arrived specifically to do.
Robin Wood Tarot
The Daily Dog is a double. First Rocco and then Tess (who got into my room today and ate some people food that didn’t belong to them).
No shot of the non-dogs (which, to be fair, my glorious and considerate hosts keep hidden from me, as to avoid any stress on ALL of us) and I couldn’t get a view of Lucy Liu the Shih Tzu. Maybe tomorrow before we leave. (But don’t hold your breath.)
