One of the features of my new fancy-pants phone is daily weather alerts and updates. Tonight, it says, will be almost dangerously cold. We brought the basil inside. And we even purchased a new (SALE!) pot for it. I hope it doesn’t die before we can eat all the leaves.
Also, with this arctic blast moving in, I may have to start wearing shoes on the bike again. Possibly. Something to think about anyway.
Here’s what I heard when I woke up today, more think-y things and channeled ideas to consider:
support one another.
Several blogs that I follow have had conversations with this being a central theme. We all know that helping others helps ourselves, and even grander, it helps the Universal community. So I was glad to see this reminder.
As I stood in front of the card altar this afternoon, I was directed to leave our regular rotation, because we needed to continue the conversation with this message.
“Creative Writing ~
‘Make time to write down your thoughts in a journal, or pen an article or book.’
‘Your soul longs for creative expression through writing. I can help you schedule this activity. Honor any inner nudges that guide you to write. The writing may be for your own enjoyment, or may be a cathartic experience of self-expression in a private journal. As you work with your connection to the written word, you may receive Divine guidance to write articles or books for publication. Call upon me at any time to guide you through this process.’
Working with Archangel Gabriel:
As the messenger angel, Gabriel loves to help writers and journalists deliver healing messages. Like a loving coach, she’ll urge you to delegate your time and energy toward writing. Gabriel can also open doors that allow for publication of your articles or books, if you will ask her for assistance. Most of all, she’ll help you enjoy writing.”
Do you see how this angel assistance ties in with the suggestion of support? We can be angel-helpers for others, as well as others stepping in and helping us. Many of us are writers, and many of us struggle with time for writing, or motivation for wiring, or simply not having fun with our writing at this moment.
Here’s a solution, we can simply call on Gabriel. And call on friends, and call on family. Ask for help. And never set that pen* aside, we all have something important to say.
*Or electronic writing devices, whatever.

This Week’s Kitchen Adventure:
will not be a picture of the Froot Loops Krispie Treats I made last night, you’ve seen those. But instead, you get to witness the result of Dan’s latest infusion project.
Basically it took three days to make some air freshener. Which is not a bad thing, it’s just not quite the exact product he was after. It’s condensed and distilled. Pretty much. Also? It smells delightful. Just not as intense as we were hoping for. Totally still useful and we’re considering it a success.
(But now, we’re out of vodka.)
