We were up and out and it was lovely.  Went several places, saw lots of things, enjoyed some fun snacks, and most importantly, Dan and I spent time* with our kids.  Also, some Mother’s Day shopping occurred.

*Okay, technically, in the daylight, we only saw two-thirds of them.  But by the clock, I got to see all three in one day.

Canisters. Made of glass. Perfectly plain.

             I’ve been on the look-out for some really big, über simple, not-plastic jars for my baking supplies.  Hanna gave me the gift of two.  I am beyond thrilled.

             Before we left the house though, I woke up with our channeled message coming in loud and clear:

embrace; accept and appreciate.

            The definition of this that came to me, as I was standing at the sliding glass door, not seeing any deer*, was about really grasping the NOW, and seeing these present moments as special, unto themselves.  Accepting that our journey is not always a smooth and even road.

 *Because they were on the other side of the fence, Dan pointed them out when I came upstairs.

             It felt as though the Universe was saying, “here you are, and isn’t it grand?!”

             On our card altar we have a messenger who brings  a recommendation that is near and dear to my heart.

“The Wise Woman of Wonderland  ~  21  ~

integrity, compromise

The Wise Woman of Wonderland brings integrity to thought, word, and deed.  She let’s you know that as long as you are in the flow of honesty and being true to your word, she keeps you under her protection and care.

When she appears as your Ally, she signals a time when  honesty pays off, yielding greater dividends than you expected.  You’ll be thankful that you remained faithful and loyal to your path.  She reminds you that compromise isn’t always an option.

Stay true to yourself first and foremost.  Although it may appear that you could lose something as a result, you can never lose what is truly yours.”

             Additionally, when we put the numbers together, they add down to 3 – which we already know can represent the Sacred Trinity, in whatever guise that appears to you.

Today’s Sharing:

is this outstanding shot Hanny took after we had returned back to The Burrow.

Hunter, and friend.

             We were all out in the front yard.  I was weaving my honeysuckles (pictures soon, they are doing SO damn well, and smell SO damn good), then (finally!) finishing up with the fairy path weeding.  She was having a snack and the deputy was celebrating a bonus day off. (He also helped me with the weeds.)

Last Night’s Kitchen Adventures:

included getting that batch of biscuits baked (minutes before my girl showed up), along with frosting the dog treats.

Puppy Cakes!
Puppy Cakes!

          As I mentioned before, this package was part of prize basket.  We were curious about what was in them, and what made them dog-friendly.  But there was no way in hell that *I* was going to taste the bastards.

            Not satisfied to simply read the box and let it go at that, Han sampled the frosting.  I asked her how it was.  She expressed the reaction pretty clearly and visibly.   Then I asked her to describe the taste (because this is what ingredients were listed: unflavored yogurt powder).  She said,

if a ghost ate yogurt, then had gas.  Like that.”

  1. “if a ghost ate yogurt, then had gas. Like that.” Oh, ewww!!! Poor Hanna! One of Joshua’s friends was over last weekend and decided to try one of Kady’s dog biscuits. He said it wasn’t bad except for the aftertaste. I’m just not going there!

    Love the picture of Hunter and the deputy!

    It was HER choice to stick that tiny finger in the dog frosting. I mean, I freaking ADORE icing, we all know, but there is a limit. 😉

    And just because it’s pet-EDIBLE, doesn’t mean we should be tasting it, them, the biscuits……

  2. Hanna definitely has a magical way with words! Ugh! She was very brave to try them.

    It sounds like things are going well and I’m glad you have your Seattle girl visiting. And a bonus day off for the deputy!

    My humans were gone most of yesterday and will be part of today. It’s nice to have the house to myself (and the non-dog, Plum) from time to time.

    Alone time can be very rejuvenating!

  3. Lovely to have mother daughter time. 🙂
    That photo of the hunter and friend is fabulous!

    It really is,
    on both accounts.

  4. Love the canisters!

    Quite apropos messages, as usual!

    I have a plan for where they’re going to be, too. Next to an actual antique that we’ve been using for coffee. For decades.

    10:35 p.m.

  5. Love those cannisters. I’ve started carrying around a Ball pint-size canning jar to drink in during the day.
    Great pic of Dan and Max.

    There is an entire MOVEMENT like that, it’s all about using/re-using/non-consumerism, and they have blogs! Canning jars for everything! (I’ll take a picture of my kitchen cupboard soon, and show you my contribution.)
