(Yes, this post DID, in fact, go up very late. It happens.)
On our ride yesterday (which I totally forgot to mention) we ended up at a new frozen yogurt place. Dan had googled this a while back, but I told him it probably didn’t exist. (Mostly because I was SURE it wasn’t really where he said it was.) Very good to know, now that we’ve confirmed: I was completely wrong. (Oh well. A yummy snack is still a yummy snack.)
Today’s pedaling errands included a library run. (Yes, that’s the still-ugly building, still not done.)
And while we were downtown, a stop in to visit with Ryon at the gym. (Empress had late grooming appointments, so we didn’t get to see her.) They are making great progress, enough to now start see training clients. Very promising!
Later we had dinner with J.D. And I talked to Hanny about our Family Fun Portland Weekend plans. All very positive. Metaphysically, not too much to report. Our daily draw is very soothing though, and I was glad to see that, after yesterday’s heavy emotions.
(Thank you all for your kind comments the past two days, tomorrow I’ll be back to replying.)
Rest your mind.

One of the suggestions *A* has made, as we work through my grief issues and my food difficulties, is that I have Dan help me put together another healing/grieving space. In the house we lived in before this one, he and I created a Moon Garden area where I could sit at night. For me, this message is a reminder for that project. We just need to make it a priority and talk out some plans for getting it into reality.
JulieLand regulars already know how I feel about taking some Quiet Time for ourselves, and how vital it is to our health, mental as well as physical. Clearly we needed this simple sign from the Universe.
