My day got away from me (duh).  So I’m feeling a wee bit rushed.  Tuesdays sometimes do that.  As  you all know by now.  And before I forget, go see what Sarah has to say about this BLUE MOON tonight.

             There was no message when I got out of bed.  So I just continued on with what I do to wake up.  When I got to our card altar I knew what the focus needed to be.  It was one of those a combo-plates, a blended sort of suggestion.

Rest your eyes on the obvious,

because THAT is where the Magick resides.

             Now, look at this illustration, read the definition, and see how they tie together.

“Revelation  ~

Listen to your life.

The right path will reveal itself.”

             The direct relation here is about being IN our journey, participating with mindful awareness.  It talks about living in our bodies with earnest honesty.  And it’s a reminder to always try to hear the music of our soul.

Today’s Deck:

Self-Care Cards by Cheryl Richardson

(with additional channeling through me)

Today’s Mileage:

was partly our usual day’s adventure, with a bit more added on (as you can see by the Deputy’s map HERE, even with a glitch in the signal), 10.741 miles in 1 hour 8 minutes 39 seconds, averaging 9.3 MPH.

FLP Report:

was one that got past me, it looked like Minnesota but there wasn’t enough letters to spell that out, plus a single British Columbia (hi Canadians!).

Tonight’s Kitchen Adventure:

includes a view from last night’s invented recipe.

home-made fruit crisp
With really good ice cream.

             Oh yeah, our mixed fruit crisp, with home-grown blueberries and cherry-plums, turned out perfectly.  Yay me!

             But wait, there’s more.  I had ANOTHER idea.  Wanna know why?  Because I have the world’s best mother-in-law.  She saw THIS and thought of us*.  So right now, we have a huge baked macaroni and cheese cooling upstairs.

*The book is from the restaurant, and it’s on order.  When it arrives we’ll try more recipes, this one is from the (local) newspaper article that was considerately clipped by Daniel’s parents and mailed to us.

home-made mac and cheese
Dan made this one.

             First we had to argue about the type of pasta, but after that we could come up with an agreeable flavor profile: Mexican!  So yeah, it has corn and olives in it, and is seasoned with cumin and (dried, sadly not fresh) cilantro.  (But not garlic.  Because he forgot.  He’s on vacation!)  Come by and help us eat it.

  1. I’ve been doing some listening to my life these past few days. Very helpful. Love both of your photos of food…must be hungry. ; )

    It might be a chicken-and-the-egg thing, being hungry and seeing food photos, lol.
    Which came first?

  2. I’m actually going to sit here with my mug of tea and think about my upcoming day — what I need to do, what I want to do, when — then I’m going to just listen and ask questions of myself and try to learn. Without the computer on my lap. 🙂

    Your mac and cheese sounds good and completely different from any mac and cheese I’ve ever encountered. Cool!

    Your mindful Quiet Time sounds like the perfect way to honour these messages.

    Yeah, I can’t wait for the cook book to actually arrive. We are gonna have SO much fun with the recipes those two girls came up with.

  3. I’m hungry and even if I wasn’t both of those things look delicious. Thank goodness I have cheese tortellini waiting for me.

    They both did turn out beautifully well. 😀
