Once again, I have distracted my childish wee self elf. With recipe experimenting. And my library books. So I sit down tonight, already pressing up uncomfortably close to tardy.
We’ll just have to dive right on! My sleeping (and that of the deputy’s) was disturbed early today due to door knockers. Potential threats (of grave danger!) on the front porch (perhaps especially those bearing religious pamphlets) send our Grand Dog into fits of furious barking. Not to mention how he nearly tosses his face and front feet at the window.
Then, less than an hour later, his girl showed up. For a nap. Which meant that he had to run back and forth, upstairs and down, alerting everyone of everyone else’s presence All in all, it was NOT a restful second half of bedtime.
However, I did wake up with a message. It arrived in bits and pieces that I puzzled over, but then just let sit. To end up with this:
presentation; be you, honestly.
Which, ya know, can mean a bunch o’ shit! To me, it feels like something about walking our talk and standing our ground. Being who we are, no matter the circumstance.
On our card altar, what we’re looking at coincides nicely with this. Pay specific attention to that last line from the guidebook.
resolution, stress reduction, potential new possibilities
An ongoing problem or dilemma will soon be resolved in an unexpected way. As a consequence, your stress levels and anxiety will decrease. Through this, exciting new pathways open for you and you discover new possibilities for your life.
As this current situation is resolved, you will simultaneously and subconsciously let go of a past regret or guilt that has only served to sabotage the creative possibilities that have been available for you for quite some time. It is time for you to shine!
Open your heart and you will see the unlimited potential that resides within you.”
Wow, what a welcome and inspiring message! Yeah, we are totally so far past due needing this one. Lovely, simply lovely. (And the color of this stone is gorgeous!)

was just to the pool and back, in sprinkling rain, with slightly warm temperatures, but a cold wind. All of that equals an unsettling ride, but not miserable, for 3.863 miles, in 23 minutes and 56 seconds, at an average rate of 9.6 MPH.

was a bigger batch than I thought it was going to be. Now I’m out of several pantry basics, and I detest that feeling.
It helps to read what SIZE of pan is called for, and peruse the amounts of ingredients. (Several times!) Because clearly, reading through it twice is not enough for ALL of the details to sink in. Or, that could just be me. Go HERE for the recipe. (Thank you, Friend From Afar.)
