Don’t worry, the title tonight has nothing to do with math. Gasp! The horror! I would never do that to JulieLanders. I just didn’t think “summation” sounded as good. But I do have some catching up to do, sort of like blog housekeeping. Except, ya know, without the actual cleaning. I repeat, gasp!
Before we get down to any business though, let me just say our Trickster from yesterday was not kind to me this afternoon. What with that and the Shadow Effect, my patience has definitely been tested. Persevering though…. several things I have to go back to as soon I’m done here, but I’ll get through it. Laughing or not, I will, and so will you if it came up and bit you in the ass today too. Sneaky bastard.
Thursday night I joined Daniel at our favorite late night/early morning snack place. I had eaten before so I wasn’t starving, this helped me decide what I wanted Addi to for make me, and what I was going to take home. Worked out nice, I got three meals out of it. Here is a picture of our dessert, she makes these for “special” customers. (And yes, I certainly am special, on so many levels.)
It is a fried cherry pie with ice cream. She creates them herself, and they are too yummy for words. Dan and I shared this one.
And speaking of sweet things, in our selective viewing recently we just watched a couple of new Alton Brown’s. He was making Devil’s Food Cake, in a new and overly scientific way, so my Beloved was instantly intrigued. Ha ha! I’m gonna get cake this week! (First I have to go retrieve the recipes from my e-mail, so we can print them, then we have to go buy stuff, but after that… cake!)
On a very sad note, one of our dear blog friends has just suffered an extremely painful loss. Becky wrote a beautiful piece in memory of someone very special to her. It is worth reading, the more we have compassion for others, the more we will feel it ourselves. Please take the time to stop by, either by using the Important Women option or by clicking on the above link. You honored her so wonderfully Becky, thank you. I truly hope you are feeling better soon. Much love to you, and to Laura’s family as well.
I’ve been reading this not-the-one-I-thought-it-was angel book over the weekend and it’s still proving to be very thought-provoking and interesting. The way we receive signs is as vast as we are. I’m now up to the part where Doreen is talking about messages through music. I was reminded to charge up my wee iPod knock-off. Not sure why yet, but it IS full of music I love so that one was fairly obvious. What I really want though is some musical signs from really obscure places, I’ll let you know how that goes.
One more thing then we are on to our card (remember, I have crap that I need to get back to, since Coyote and Mercury are messing with me something fierce right now). Empress and Honey Graham have another room-mate. She has a little dog, he is Max’s most excellent buddy. He is also so freaking adorable it’s almost painful. Here’s a phone picture that was sent to me the other night. The kids and dogs were all home at the new abode, and maybe they were having a little too much fun.
This is what Emmy wrote in the text, “I may have put Chacho in a bucket.” Really, doesn’t this photo just speak for itself? What more could I possibly add?!
In our tour around the card altar we are back to Healing with the Fairies. I don’t usually love yellow, but this illustration is very warm looking, even if Lora will need to make fun of her face and desperate expression, I liked the overall feel to it. The message may not be too positive, but it will be helpful, at this point, that might just be all we can ask for.
“Be Honest with Yourself ~
This card indicates that you are hiding your true feelings and are not being forthright about an important topic. The fairies urge you to admit your true feelings to yourself.
Do you feel stuck? Depressed? Tired? Angry and irritable? These are symptoms that arise when we are dishonest with ourselves. Maybe you feel that you cannot afford to be honest with yourself and that you do not have a choice. This card is not asking you to make any radical life changes or have a confrontation with another person. However, it is urging you to admit your true feelings to yourself.
One easy way to get in touch with your true feelings is by going outside and engaging in silent conversation with the fairies who live amidst the flowers, trees, and grass. Even if you can’t yet see or hear the fairies, mentally tell them everything that you’ve been thinking, feeling, and experiencing these days. Ask them to help you get in touch with your deepest feelings. The fairies love to hold a mirror up to us so we can see and admit the truth.
Affirmation: It is safe for me to be honest with myself and others. I speak my truth with love.”
