We have to begin with some food news. No, nothing I created. (I haven’t been super inspired lately, so Kitchen Adventures are currently on hold.) We got out of the house early enough to meet April and get some To Go treats from Noble Cafe.
It was horribly wet outside today, torrential rains, so we kind of dripped our way into the place. Dan went with the daily special and I invented a sandwich from all of the terrific choices from the Create-Your-Own option.
Seriously, local folks, go see this beautiful young woman and eat in her cafe. Beyond good! Hopefully we’ll be able to not just get a quick lunch, but next visit try the smoothies and take our time. Those of you from far away? Just fly here and I’ll loan you a bike.
For now, let’s get to what the Universe wants us to focus on today. What I woke up with (after a very animated dream of traveling, visiting, and a panel truck from approximately the 1940s) this just keep circling around in my head:
timing, timing, timing,
perception and placement.
For me, it definitely felt like an idea of paying attention, and being aware of how all things have a time of their own. We have placement and perception when we know that the time is right for something.
On our card altar, I was directed to leave the regular rotation and flip from this stack. No cover-ups needed.
“Angel of Support ~
The Universe has heard your silent call for help.
The universe has heard your plea and has sent an angel to support and guide you through the current circumstances. Your financial and emotional wellbeing is about to take a turn for better through an unexpected blessing or sudden change in fortune that is soon to come your way.
Surrender all fear and anxiety. Trust! The universe is conspiring to help you. Emotional, spiritual, and material support come through a seemingly chance encounter with someone new, or through an unexpected offer.
This has to be one of my favorites, even the illustration is growing on me. (Love those golden spirals!). Who are we to question? Let’s simply let go of the terror and allow the gifts to appear on our doorstep.

was, as mentioned above, a slow (only 9.2 average MPH) super soaking ride downtown and back, 8.618 miles, in 55 minutes and 46 seconds. (The map is HERE.) Our exquisite bonus? Spotting this gorgeous creature on our way home.
The Deputy had to use his smarty-pants phone because by the time I’d climbed off my bike, dug around in the overly-loaded, let’s-not-get-everything-wet panniers, and found the camera, our cover would have been blown and we might have lost the shot.
Today’s Belated Greetings:
go out to Dan’s younger sister, Michelle, and her beloved, Bruce. On the 23rd of September, 30 years ago, we stood with them in my in-laws’ backyard, as witness to their love and devotion. This anniversary is a special one, as is this married couple. We love you, both!
