First of all, yes, I know the header got huge. Couldn’t be helped, it just happened. We’ll have to live with it until the end of the year, when the snow goes away (on screen, I have no idea when OUR snow will go away, predictions are now for freezing rain tomorrow).
Did I actually take my bike to the store? Yep. Did I nearly wipe out about 5 or a zillion times? Yep. Did I actually pedal home? Nope. My son (begrudgingly) met me at the market and
carelessly shoved carefully stored my two-wheeler in his car trunk.
I told Dan, as I was leaving (and he was shoveling the driveway) that I had no expectations for this journey. It would work or it wouldn’t. Either way, I was out there.
Here is the full view. For documentation purposes, for when I switch out this picture.
Our message today was extremely clear, and not a bad follow-up to yesterday’s:
New is not (always) better.
Again we are being reminded that the next purchased item is not going to solve all of our problems, not make us feel good, not even help us to be in great standing with our loved ones.
And on our card altar, today’s draw talks about another aspect of showing our love, still in a non-material sense. And like the last one, I am being directed to step away from the guide-book. I’ll be channeling whatever definition the Universe feels we need to hear.
“Jasper Red ~
nurture, care, protection, energy flow, life force”
Our love and attention, aimed at ourselves or others, is a healing miracle that we don’t often recognize. Just the simple act of smiling as we drive through a crowded parking lot, or thanking the clerk behind a busy store counter, can do much more than we realize.
We don’t need to think about any situation ahead of time, just know that the more we surround ourselves with lovingkindness, and share it as much as possible, we are changing energy. In a really positive way.

Today’s Stylish Dog:
is by special request. I heard you asking!
Here is Grand Dog, modeling his newest attire. Layered, of course. Underneath is a festive holiday sweater (which I’ll get another shot of soon) and on top is his fashionable winter jacket, from the Martha Stewart (Gentle Pets) Collection. He has several toys under this label, and we all like them.
for the half-a ride is a mere 2.397 miles, in 16 minutes 55 seconds (but it felt WAY longer), with a glacial average speed of 8.5 MPH.
Tonight’s Kitchen Adventure:
is a shared recipe that Glynis recently tried, and recommended. HERE is the info. They just came out of the oven, I’ll keep you posted.
