Not much to report today, and not a ton in my wee smooth brain either. It was a brief erranding and grocery day, so obviously we started by dropping in at the dog wash.
And you can tell by my lack of long sleeves that it’s continuing to be nice weather here. It’s gonna rain tonight, but the temperatures have gone up past 50-something, so it’s mostly doing what it should.
Truthfully, we had one place to drive by before we got to see this adorable grand-dog though. Sometimes I read a book that I feel compelled to discuss with Daniel, and in many cases he just needs to read the whole thing before we can talk about it. I can’t always just TELL him what’s in it. But because he has, like a JOB, and shit, he can’t get through his assigned reading as fast as I can (also, I do read slightly faster than he does, probably because he actually understands all of it and doesn’t skim as much as I do). When it’s library books, the current releases that can’t be renewed, he’s under a bit of a time crunch.
Today he had to finish a book while I drove us to the return spot, and as we were heading that direction there were several license plates that got past me. (I didn’t want to point them out, he was READING!) So we only have this one, that counts as foreign.
Sadly, even though it was Pennsylvania, it was NOT my friend Tracy. Oh well, maybe next time.
Another reason I need to be brief (not just because my mind seems to be in one of its scattered modes currently) is because I have MUCH cross stitching to get done. MUCH! I am way behind on my latest commission work and need to leave the time suck of the fascinating interwebs tonight to work on something that will actually bring us a peso or six.
In medical news today, the pistachio inflicted cut on my thumb seems to be merely a flesh wound and healing up rather quickly. And the nut snacks are gone, I ate them all last night, so hopefully I’ll be safe for another few days. Ya know, until some other ridiculously dangerous household item or treat reaches out and bites me in the ass. Or hand.
The card this afternoon, from Colette’s Wisdom of the Hidden Realms Oracle Deck, seems a smidge negative, but in the long run it’s an over all positive message since it talks about a mind-set that we can overcome. Even if we tend to slip back into this type of thinking pattern occasionally, we’ve proven here that these types of things CAN be changed. That must be the reminder we needed.
“The Prison Waif ~ self-sabotage, poverty consciousness.
When the Prison Waif arrives in his realm as your Ally, he comes to remind you of the Law of Paradoxical Intent. Your own self-sabotaging thoughts and hidden beliefs are, in fact, preventing you from your highest good. You might believe that you are doing all you can to manifest your reality, but perhaps you are giving in to thoughts such as the following:
I can’t do this.
I am unworthy.
I will fail, so why try?
I don’t deserve this.
I am unloveable.
In fact, you are locked in a prison of your own making. That’s the good news, because it means you have the key to let yourself out. This is a sign that you need to spend some time with yourself addressing those beliefs that counter your hard work to get ahead. You can change them if you want to. You don’t want to stay in prison, do you?
Take inventory of your thoughts, let yourself out of jail, and spend a few minutes outdoors in gratitude. It is time to let the sunshine in.”
Oops, almost forgot to mention, we did notice something else while we were out. It appeared to be Odd And Peculiar Dude Day. Every place we went, and some places we simply drove past, there was a strange guy, or a FEW strange guys. We have a LOT of unusual folks here in town, me and Dan included. But this was above and beyond the norm. Tons of them, all just that teeny tiniest bit off. Entertaining as hell, but kinda creepy too.
