The heat hasn’t been too bad here, thankfully, perfectly tolerable. Today it was warm, but cooler* than yesterday; I got out on the bike for five miles/half an hour. The ride was one of my best, not so much of a struggle. For which I am most grateful. Last night after work Dan and I took Max on a neighborhood trudge. With a twist. We went up to the closest school yard and made a few circuits around the track-inside-of-the-newish-football-field. His idea. Not mine.
*I’m sure there are temperature numbers around some place, but I won’t be looking them up. You guys know what weather feels like.
Our 3 a.m. jog was an interesting experiment. I can’t say it was a failure, because technically I DID run. But I’m not sure we’ll repeat it any time soon. Or maybe we will. (This man has the patience of a fucking saint, you guys, I am not even kidding.) For my gratitude today I wrote down how much I appreciated the fact that my legs and hooves took me where we needed to go. Slow, sure, but we got there.
On the card altar we have a stone that I’m not at all familiar with. So I googled it. Turns out, similar to graphite. Here’s some more of what I found:
“…. the name Molybdenite comes from the Greek word Molybdos, meaning lead. Known as the dreamer’s stone, it integrates the everyday self with the higher self and facilitates spiritual expansion. If you need a healing dream, place Molybdenite under your pillow. Repairing and replenishing the subtle bodies, this stone operates exceptionally well at a mental level. It has a powerful electrical charge that continually recharges and rebalances the body when in its field. Molybdenite eliminates mercury toxicity from the body, and harmonizes mercury fillings to a more beneficial vibration. It is reputed to facilitate intergalactic contact.”
a message from the stars ~
Your life is always held in perfect equilibrium by the divine natural order that exits within all creation. Believing that you have somehow failed or made the wrong decision or choice is simply an illusion. There is nothing you need to change or fix in your life, apart from your sometimes unbalanced perceptions – mainly your self criticism.
Know that you are always worthy of love and you are eternally blessed. Start to accept all of who you are, as you are, and you will see your life magically and lovingly transform. All is in perfect divine order.
From a spiritual perspective there are no mistakes in life. Every experience is a lesson in love and wisdom.”
The way these definitions are written (and channeled) are why I am such a fan of this deck. Also, I love learning about the crystals ……pause….. I just got horribly distracted by Twitter and then by the My Drunk Kitchen girl. (Dammit Kari and Becky and Hannah Hart, stop being so entertaining while I’m trying to work!)
Where were we? Oh right. So the card, nice (don’t really think there’s much I can add to that one). The Daily Dog, also nice, here ya go (it’s kinda dark, but that’s how it goes sometimes).
And we recently found out that our state has some new custom plates. This came from Emma via her father. (Eventually. Long story, not worth yammering on about. Bottom line: new phone, getting it all figured out. Who reads instruction manuals any more?!) (ME! But apparently, no one else.)
Also, guess who will be here in The Burrow tomorrow? This girl !!!
She’ll be here for Country Fair weekend and her grandfather’s 74th birthday. It’s gonna be a festive few days.
