Right. So. Well, sure. Like that. A mixed day. Full of ups and downs. The weather couldn’t make up its mind either. We were both feeling confused, unsettled, dissatisfied, and slightly cloudy. Alternating with brief contentment, jovial-ness, serenity, and fairly bright/not-too-damn-bad moments.
And we bought new toilet seats, the cheap-y, cheapest of über cheap kind. (No, really. Together two of them weren’t fifteen dollars. Fun ones with seahorses or celestial designs? Sadly, not for us.)
Then the Universe gave me a message. It was being sarcastic, I just know it.
This card can be deceiving, the look on our main character’s face is so negative, and yet the signs all point towards a positive situation.
In essence, it says that we need to stop whining and be grateful for what we have (we are being fully supported, unquestionably so). In front of our guy here we see three cups, with another just over his shoulder. He is in obvious good health, robust and in a pleasant environment. So what’s wrong? The answer is: nothing.
We are responsible for our own happiness and our own well-being. If we get stuck in bad moods (or are struck down by depression!) it is up to us to get out. Whether by seeking the proper treatment or by getting the fuck over ourselves. We wrote these charts, we need to learn these lessons. WE need to take those improving steps forward.
When we look at 4s we are always talking about foundations, the fundamental base, the primary bottom line. Where we come from, in a very personal sense. So if we are being advised to “suck it up” then we view that from our background, our history, our heritage/genetic story of us and those we came from.
Building on solid footing gives us general strength and overall power. But if our origins are a wobbly place, we need to create our OWN foundation. Part of what we are learning might have to do with the individuality it takes to stand independently, but with support, as our previous few draws have been saying.
Cups are always emotional situations, so it’s going to be natural that we have deep feelings and strong sensations with this one. Moods and personal dispositions are exactly what’s in front of us. Just like today’s illustration shows.
We HAVE to count our blessings. We MUST acknowledge those who love and cherish us. We NEED to appreciate all that we have been given.

Last Night’s Kitchen Adventures:
were more tortillas, I’m kind of liking them better than biscuits at the moment.
Yes, that clock says it’s almost one a. of m. Dan was home for lunch while I was making these, we were chatting when I took this shot.
Maine and Virginia, both extremely rare sightings.
