Our recent suggestion from the Dolphins and Mermaids about Morning Affirmations might be messing with my channeled start-of-day messages. This afternoon I rolled out of the warm waterbed, and quickly began spewing many bad words in a row as I walked across the room trying not to trip over the dog. I was SURE I’d forgotten some part of what I was “supposed” to be doing.
No worries though, I’ll get it worked out, it’s not that much to add in, I merely need to organize it properly. Here’s what went on in my head, in case you were wondering. (And Corina, Queen of Bi-Mart, please attempt to keep this on the metaphysical plane, if at ALL possible!)
“Daily goal, got it. Affirmation, got it. Oh shit, what was the message? HEY! What’s our message? Don’t we get a message?!” Then I heard, in kind of a screamy voice:
To which I replied, “oh no. Really. That CAN’T be the message. Give me another one.” There was nothing after that. Dead quiet. A humming silence. We’ll just have to figure that the meaning must be more like this,
: to be lively, exciting, and up-to-date
: to move freely, and with great excitement
rather than perhaps some OTHER definition of the word. Probably. (For some of us, anyway.)
Our card altar draw is calm and spare. But not really any more precise. Either way, doesn’t matter, I really like the look (and feel) of this illustration.
Be willing to pass up good for great.”
Sometimes we might feel as though we’ve missed a chance or we did something wrong and made a mistake. Then we have regrets. Remember, there ARE no mistakes! Only lessons. So, it’s easy to let that good slip right on past. The great will be exactly the one we needed in the first place.
Self-Care Cards by Cheryl Richardson
ended up being nothing like what we had planned. Still taking care of car business. We had to have an estimate, and that made everyone late, including Ryon. Also, the deputy is not feeling well, still. We canceled gym-time, and just went to retrieve the OTHER car. HERE is his one-way map.
As a round-trip, I rode 7.455 (but since we forgot to re-set after yesterday’s emergency jaunt, those are all the numbers I can figure). On the plus side, we may have one entire vehicular problem completely solved! Yipee for simple fixes.
(Hint: Seattle and Austin.)
is all from about a ten block area, it began with an old New Mexico, then ended with a new New Mexico, including one Wisconsin and one Minnesota sandwiched snuggly in the middle.
Tonight’s Kitchen Adventures:
included combined efforts, we pooled our talents to create a delightfully (and hopefully healing) chicken soup for Dan (which of course means that I handed him random shit and he cooked it). I’m having BBQed beans*
cooked warmed up (by me!) on the stovetop. (Because we HAVE a working stovetop!)
*A very old (and ridiculously easy “recipe” from my mother). Traditionally they are baked for hours, but I just don’t have that kind of time.
