Oh so many wild and divergent bits to cover this evening! First off, it’s Brad’s birthday. Happy Happy to our helpful and adorable nephew. Hope your day was festive and full of love. See you soon! (I know your mom will pass this message along, she can be trusted for important shit like that.)
Next, I met a small dog named Isabelle this afternoon. She hangs out in a shop I stumbled upon recently. (That post is here someplace, but I’m not going back to look for it. Just go HERE and see a picture of her, and plenty of other fun things. Local folks, make a point of visiting in person.)
I also went across the street to Evergreen, then I took this photo. It was only about 83 or so; to me, oddly enough, it felt exactly the same as the nearly-100 degree day.
Plus, I’m sharing this shot that Corina sent from the road. She was visiting the Monterey Aquarium (I’m pretty sure). And still doesn’t have computer access.
Earlier this evening I got some really wonderful news. My pool class will continue as it is right now, no sharing the water! We weren’t offered an additional day in the new fall schedule, but I was thrilled with how well attended it’s been lately and with the feed-back we’ve been getting. That’s a big deal, and a huge vote of confidence!
(In about two weeks the facility will close for its annual cleaning and maintenance time. The re-open will be right after Labor Day, and we’ll be back at it on that Wednesday.)
Under the category of Shameless Promoting, and Overwhelming Parental Pride, go see THIS post. I cried at how cute that picture was. Seriously. Ask Dan, he’ll tell you. My eyes totally teared up.
On our card altar, we’ve got a quick message, but a great one. Very dynamic and sort of cool to look at.
Take a risk.
You have the power within to move mountains.”
Not sure if I would have called that one RISK, but I am a fan of the “go for it” attitude here. Our strength so often goes unacknowledged. We just need these reminders from time to time, we CAN get so much done, CAN go so far, ARE able to accomplish way more than we ever thought possible. Keeping our own power right in the front our in mind is all we need to remember in order to access it.
In planetary news, we are coming up on our Mercury Direct again. Still have to deal with the Shadow Phase another week or so, but after that, this one is behind us. I’ll be glad to see that retrograde done with.
A few days ago I grabbed an opportunity to get this picture of Max at the kitchen table. Then it got really hot out, and he took refuge under the guest bed.
He gets itchier than usual in the summer. Just a fact. We know how to treat it, and we know that it happens. But still, he’s a wee bit difficult to capture when he’s under here.

can any of you who attend water movement classes tell me about your weights/floats? I’m wondering if it’s worthwhile to get a set of my own, like I did with the
