The Correct Amount of Soothing

             So.  Spring Forward.  Totally didn’t see that one coming.  It sneaks up on me now that it was moved around.  Whatever number of years ago.  And I still don’t know when it is.

             Fortunately, our phones do that for us now.  (Thankgawd.)  And yesterday I was just whining at my Empress over how it’s the only part about Spring that I don’t like, the losing an entire 60 minutes of sleep.

             Except……. ha!  Dan got to come home an hour early.  His shift is 5 to 3.  But last night, it was 5 to 2-which-now-looks-like 3.  What a nice bonus.  After years of working those Fall Back 11 hour days for no extra pay.  Okay, I don’t hate it as much as before.

             When I woke up earlier (still basically on time, which was odd), our message was slightly funny.  And it arrived with a bit of a snarky attitude.

No such thing as too close.

             There is, however, the phenomenon of enabling.  And clinging like a fucking  barnacle.  But, being TOO open, TOO loving, TOO close to another?  Nope.  That’s just not possible.

             What we need to be aware of is the imbalance.  By keeping ourselves on an even keel, and continuing to reach out with our caring and our lovingkindness, we’ll be helping the entire planet.

            Stepping out or our regular rotation around the card altar, we’ve been given the exact way to attain this state and continue our evolution of ever spiraling upward.

oracle cards, healing angels

“Angel of Healing  ~

The Angels have felt your sadness and have shown up today to send you healing.

Your angel of healing has heard your pleas and has arrived in your reading today to reflect healing light into your heart.  Your angel wishes you to know that you are loved more than you can possibly imagine.

Even though you may feel alone and unloved at times, know that you are eternally loved.  Whether you feel it or not, you are dearly loved and appreciated by many on the Earth plane, as well as in the angelic realm.

Close your eyes right now, place your hand upon your heart and feel the healing light pour through as you feel the presence of  your angel.  Feel yourself being breathed and supported by the universal life force of love, and imagine yourself glowing with light.

Talk to your angel; ask anything you wish – share anything you wish.  You may communicate through writing, or simply through thoughts and feelings.  

Doubt not that your angel exists;  you will receive a positive sign or confirmation of some kind in the next few days which will help you to both trust and believe.”

is this wee charmer who followed us home.  He’s made of formed concrete and is VERY heavy.  And actually, because it was so near the end of the day, he was on SALE.

             Be sure to click on the photo so you can see his fabulous face up-close.  Cute and cuddly I don’t do, crabby and reptilian?  You bet.

turtle gate stops

(Ignore the clump of moss that fell off of our roof in the last huge storm.)

             The conversation from last night, as my Deputy was going back to work after stopping by for a quick snack break:

Me  –  Why is that gate closed?  Maxx isn’t here.

Him  –  I probably just shut it behind me out of habit.

Me  –  Well, open it!  I left a piece of brick out there, to wedge underneath so it WOULDN’T close.  And hey, I had to brave the overgrown yard to find that, too.

Him  –  Don’t we have a decorative garden gnome or something nicer?

Me  –  Aren’t we going to see Home and Garden displays tomorrow?  I’ll get one then.

             There weren’t any gnomes.  Instead, we found a turtle.  And he’s doing his job just beautifully, thankyouverymuch.

             (We also got fudge.  Duh.)

  1. Umm, I always put in for an hour of overtime on the fall back days, and it was never declined… I always liked the DUII arrests then too… stop time 0145 PDT, arrest time 0155 PDT, intoxilyzer time 0115 PST. Kind of fun.

    The home show was tremendous this year. Got some good balsamic vinegar, went to one good and one awful presentation, tasted some good hootch, and had a blast looking at the wood stoves and “sheds” that could be separate dwelling units.

    And I love the message and the card.

    While I was standing in one of those “sheds” (and day-dreaming that it was my own private playhouse) Dan was around the corner, he turned and said to the kids, “if we had property, I’d build a bunch of these and put your mother in them.” 😀

  2. Love the turtle! Hate losing an hour of sleep. You wouldn’t think one hour would make much difference but boy it does. At least with me. I went to bed at 11pm last night and woke at midnight and went to my the computer and wrote a blog. Today I’m dragging these old bones around. Must go to the gym and do a workout.

    I’m so behind on my blog-hopping right now……

  3. Luuuuve turtles!!!

    We had a totally “hilarious/aggravating” discussion on when to reset the timers on the lights to the aquariums. 9 or 11? My husband kept insisting that I just “go do it now!” The whole ‘discussion’ came about ’cause he just could NOT understand that I CANNOT SEE THE TIMER FACE! So I have to turn the timer by a clock time, not reset the timer, ’cause I have to reach behind the tank and do it by feel (ie. spinning the timer till it shuts off, thus reseting it.) Saver walked by saying that neither of us was making any sense. And then she offered her view point. *shakes head* (Perhaps I should write a book on how to make a simple thing complicated…)

    We are down to just one timer here now, and it doesn’t even belong to us, it’s for Em’s python. Who is currently living in our dining area.

  4. I love the turtle! What a great expression on its face.

    I dislike daylight savings time. I think it’s silly and should be done away with. Period. At least my cell phone and computer automatically update the time, which helps because I use my cell phone as my alarm clock.

    Good messages today.

    You know I’m not fond of technology much, but wow, do I ever enjoy the hell out of how our computer and phone clocks update themselves!
