We’re gonna start with our daily draw today. Just because. I have no real reason, some days I feel more guided than others, I tune in and go the direction that seems to work best.
(I almost said “and do as I’m told” but we all know THAT ain’t right. Ryon got a great big ol’ dose of it this afternoon. In fact, he later told Emmy that he would describe her mother as “defiant” and even go so far as to say “non-compliant,” which she thought was pretty damn funny. Because, duh.)
No mishaps in the card altar room, so far. And we’ve returned to our regular rotation.
“Reward ~ Guardian Angel
Your guardian angels are rewarding you for all your concerted efforts, hard work, and dedication to helping others. You have been giving so much, and now it’s time for you to receive.
Your reward comes to you in an unexpected and happy way. It helps you know that you are not alone, and that you are being watched over. Allow this to boost your faith even further.
This is also a message for you to treat yourself with a few goodies. You’ve been expending so much energy that there is a need for a retreat and rejuvenation. Indulge yourself with a massage, a pedicure, or a long soak in a warm bathtub.
Rewarding yourself helps you to keep going and feel appreciated for all your hard work, and it balances all the giving that you’ve been doing. You deserve this reward, and remember: the more you allow yourself to receive, the more you have available to give to others.”
Disclaimer firmly in place. My idea of torture would be a massage and pedicure followed by a fucking bath! Not even kidding. So, let’s all substitute those out for what is REALLY a reward. Or, if the suggested ideas sound like things you would appreciate, form that thought in your head, and go for it. Manifest it. I’ll be over here, dry and vertical, where nobody is rubbing up against me.
I am irritated just THINKING about that as a reward, but also I’m supremely distracted today. Here’s why. Him. And his itchiness. (A shot from last night, and one from right now.)
Do you recall his skin issue earlier in the year? The thing is, he’s super allergic. To fleas. We don’t have any here, but sometimes he goes places where they are, and he comes home MANICALLY scratching and biting at himself. Until he bleeds.
If they weren’t so freaking expensive, I’d have his fluffy wee noggin safely ensconced in a cone collar by now. Instead, we went to the other end for a temporary solution. I foraged around in my sewing room and found an old dog garment I’d made for one of them, and turned it backwards, with his tail out the head hole. Then I tacked on some elastic. Viola!
(And you can CLEARLY see in the above phone photo how VERY pleased he is with my clever creativeness. Mmm, or maybe not.)
Hey, in googling around just now, I found THESE . I could totally make him one like that. Right now though, he’ll have to wear his new jammie bottoms that Dan picked up* this afternoon while they were out getting some oral meds that will help from the inside. (Yes, those trousers do have suspenders attached. Now! To a collar made of some old underwear waistband. I’m doin’ the best I can here!)
*Shopping for pets, very much what it used to be like shopping for the kids: Goodwill, St Vincent de Paul, and whatever handy place had the cheapest clean clothing.

A Foreign License Plate Combined Effort:
Wisconsin, New York, Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, and far too many Utahs (wave wave, hi Judie)
Early Equinox Bonus:
tomorrow is the second equal day of the year (or today, depending on when you read this). HERE is a video of Henry (a talented psychic guy I follow, and very much enjoy) with his Holiday reading. Totally worth the entire 11 minutes.
LateNight One More (last) Thing:
holy crap. Look at THIS story. I am no longer impressed with my measly 8 miles on the bike. Alone.
