Ooooo, I am very nearly late tonight!  We spent much time out and about, most of it on the bikes, but then later, some in the car.   We didn’t get rained on once, and today’s illustration is relatively pleasing to gaze upon, so I’m counting all of that as positive.  (Has everyone been playing along at home, adding up their “wins” at the end of each day?)

              Apparently, when we stop for more than an hour (and our gym “hour” is really about 75 minutes), Dan’s fantastic GPS program also stops.  So the map is in two parts, not nearly so impressive.  But begin HERE with this information:

02/26/2013 14:12 Activity type: bicycle Description: – Total distance: 7.47 km (4.6 mi) Total time: 38:53 Moving time: 34:57 Average speed: 11.53 km/h (7.2 mi/h) Average moving speed: 12.83 km/h (8.0 mi/h) Max speed: 36.90 km/h (22.9 mi/h) Average pace: 5.20 min/km (8.4 min/mi) Average moving pace: 4.68 min/km (7.5 min/mi) Fastest pace: 1.63 min/km (2.6 min/mi) Max elevation: 138 m (454 ft) Min elevation: 102 m (334 ft) Elevation gain: 106 m (348 ft) Max grade: 9 % Min grade: -11 % Recorded: 02/26/2013 14:12

 and then go HERE with the other details:

02/26/2013 16:08 Activity type: bicycle Description: – Total distance: 12.09 km (7.5 mi) Total time: 1:42:36 Moving time: 1:17:32 Average speed: 7.07 km/h (4.4 mi/h) Average moving speed: 9.36 km/h (5.8 mi/h) Max speed: 26.10 km/h (16.2 mi/h) Average pace: 8.49 min/km (13.7 min/mi) Average moving pace: 6.41 min/km (10.3 min/mi) Fastest pace: 2.30 min/km (3.7 min/mi) Max elevation: 139 m (457 ft) Min elevation: 95 m (312 ft) Elevation gain: 235 m (770 ft) Max grade: 7 % Min grade: -3 % Recorded: 02/26/2013 16:08

              Open the pages and then put them next to each other maybe?  (Did you see how much of a climb that hill is?  We pedal up 457 feet!  And most of it is the last two streets DIRECTLY before The Burrow.)

               Right when we were taking off, we saw this, practically before  even rolling out of the driveway.

turkey chick feathers
My best guess is a fluffy turk-let feather.
(Holy crap, you can also see how supremely filthy that bike is.)

                As our bikes were pointed towards leaving downtown (after picking up my free pen), we spotted KC’s truck, so of course we stopped.  He was not manning the grill inside, but we got one of the lunch special’s from the delightful young person who was.

The carrot fries are amazing.
The carrot fries are amazing.

             Before we headed out (the first time) I wanted to see what the Universe was going say, so I stepped into the card altar room real quick; this draw is another validation for me.   I’ve been doing work in this area for the past few days, this was a nicely hopeful sign (and also helped me deal with some retrograde shit that cropped up).  Also?  I do not hate the entire appearance.

“Angel Of Self-Worth  ~

You are currently undervaluing yourself;

It is time to regain your self-worth.

You are so much more than what you are portraying to the world and those around you.

The Angel of Self-Worth is here today to reflect unto you all the beauty, love, and light, that you are, and to help you regain your sense of self-worth.  Feel her healing light penetrate your aura this very moment and affirm to yourself:

I am a being of light and love.  I love and value the many wonderful qualities I posses.  From this moment forward, I will honour and value myself, all I am, and all I do, in the knowledge that I am part of all creation.  I am worthy of love.

Repeat this affirmation several times each day either out loud or in the silence of your heart.  Reflect upon each word and truly believe and own each one.  Express each word with all your heart and soul.

As you begin to value yourself, you will find that others start to value you.”

               I’m going to copy this one down, and add it to my current project.  I like the “honouring” aspect the most.

Today’s Deck:

Angels, Gods, and Goddesses Oracle Cards by Toni Carmine Salerno

FLP Report:

montana license plates
The first of 2 Montanas we saw, neither of which were styles we’d seen before. Neither of which were people we knew.

               That one (above), plus the other from the same place, Georgia, and two Virginias.

Today’s Mileage:

from my wee device said 12.042 with an average speed of 9.1 MPH for one hour, eighteen minutes, and 54 seconds.  Dan’s two programs showed 11.71 and 12.15, so again, they are on either side of how many times my wheels go around.

  1. Wow, that is quite the route! Seeing the maps makes me want to move to Eugene… sigh…

    and who wouldn’t want to move to a city where the street vendors sell carrot fries?! 😉

    Ooooh, turk-let feather! So fluffy & soft-looking (and exotic to me, since we don’t have turkeys here!) I had a feather-sighting as well, a small, perfect gray one very similar to the one I texted you in late summer/early fall, except it was on the shopping center sidewalk, at night, in very poor lighting conditions that my crappy phone camera doesn’t get along with (hence no text this time).

    Angel of Self Worth brings a wonderful message! And, I agree, it is a much better illustration than most from this deck. Very very good affirmation! And very synchronistic with Judy Satori’s Full Moon Transmission, which was a channeling of Mother Mary (how very appropriate, as Virgo’s symbol is “The Virgin”), with a message of Self Love ( http://www.judysatori.com/full-moon/Full-Moon-Feb-2013.mp3 ).

    Yep, so many of the same things we’ve been talking about!

  2. So I’m up at the butt crack of dawn tired and whiny. I have to be up if I want a shower and shit cause the furnace people come today. Which means shutting the gas off till tonight. So I’ll be freezing my bits off starting about 2 hours after they shut it off. Thankfully my stove is electric so I’ll at least have my tea.

    But my damn cat woke me half an hour before my alarm by puking in my bedroom. I wanted that half hour, dammit. And just now another cat knocked the light off one of the aquariums along with a bunch of shit on the dresser. This does not bode well for my day. And I’m not even going to touch the financial aspects of this mess. Gah!

    So I’m SUPPOSED to find the gratitude part of this right? (Even if I AM muttering 4 letters comments to the world at large.) So while this is going to get us in even more fun with the township ’cause we’re using our “put our sewage in” money, at least we have the money for the furnace. (We’ll fight w/ the towhship later.) And a heartfelt “Thank-you” for them being able to put this in today. Because as I’m writing this the fan is slamming so hard back and forth against the housing it feels like a sledge hammer against my feet. Oh, and I guess that’s another really big “Thank-you” that the furnace has held itself together till now.

    Hopefully my ‘tude will improve with caffeine and sunshine.

    1. Bless their hearts they sent an extra person to help with installation. As I type this I HAVE HEAT! Not tonight, not tomorrow, right now. Especially glad since it’s going to get ugly tonight weather wise. We did have some fun when the new furnace spewed oil smoke into the house and we had to open all the windows for half an hour and disconnect the fire alarm (40 degrees out – brrrr). But I HAVE HEAT and a furnace I’m not afraid will blow up my house with me in it. 🙂

  3. That’s a great message! I’m always working on feeling my self-worth. I’ll have to read those lines some more, perhaps even write them down. And the card is very attractive.

    Wow, you are really rocking the bike rides! And hills are always killer. I won’t be riding a bike in Seattle because I think it’s frickin’ insane to do so. Even with all the bike lanes and such, drivers resent the bike riders, the lanes are too narrow, there’s no shoulder on most roads and quite simply I was terrified the last time I tried it, some 20 years ago. I’ll walk or drive the car. I really hope to live somewhere I can walk to places.

    “…drivers resent the bike riders…”

    THAT is the type of thing which makes me just want to pedal along even more! I’ll have to put my bike on the train next time we head that direction for a visit. 😛

  4. I lost a little steam this week. Feeling a bit out of sorts, so yeah, this might be a good kick in the pants message for me. ; ) Going out to get some fresh air and to loosen up the tight muscles…look at the ducks on the lake.

  5. oh my word, the relevance. thank you. The blue and white Montana plates are the new ones and aren’t they the most boring thing you’ve ever seen? Fortunately we have all those specialty plates to choose from.

    ~
    The plate was so dull that we thought at first it might be a government issue!

  6. I want a vegan Sammitch. I’ll pass on the carrot fries, though. Carrots are meh in my book.
    I just got home from the pool. Spend an hour there and it wasn’t even a drag myself unwillingly day.

    ~
    I have always felt the same way about carrots, sorta: whatever.
    But these are WONDERFUL! And so different.

    Yay for pool time!
